Who is L Vernet?

I couldn’t find any information on the illustrator L. Vernet when I wrote this post (in April of 2016…). Yes, you can find tons of examples of his artwork, mostly on postcards, but nobody seems to know/care who he/she was. The illustrations must have been done in the 60’s or 70’s. Verne briefly flirts with big-eyed children fad Margaret Keane made popular in the late 60’s. This is a rabbit riding a skateboard, as seen on a postcard for sale on the Luxembourg based auction site delcampe.net.

Kinder Surprise Toy Egg

Which came first, the egg, or the toy inside the egg? Technically not an Easter-specific toy, but it’s an egg riding a skateboard. This is a hard plastic version representing the actual chocolate egg which would contain a toy inside it. So it’s a self-referencing toy. In case this makes zero sense to you, Kinder Surprises are chocolate eggs with a tiny plastic toy inside. I thought this was a generic term, but apparently it’s a trade name, like Kleenex or Xerox. I thought it was vintage, but it dates to 2014 according to the seller.

Skateboard Haas What?

Multilingual humor? Maybe not. Hass is Dutch for hare, which makes sense in the case of this skateboarding rabbit found in a Nestle Ferrero Kinder Surprise. It’s a hollow chocolate egg containing a plastic capsule with a toy. This one dates back to 1994, and fortunately, the egg has long since been eaten. Happy Easter.

Easter - Chocolate skateboard

WWHD?

JF Fullum sent me some pics of the most beautiful thing I’ve seen in a while, outside of the hole in Mark’s back yard. It’s a giant chocolate skateboard that his mother gave him for Easter, and mind you, he’s a grown man now, but I’m just jealous. It came from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. so I guess I can cut my mom some slack.

Happy Easter

For some people this is one of the second most important holidays. Of course I’m talking about little kids looking forward to getting the second largest candy haul of the year. Watch the Easter Bunny skateboarding after the jump. You get exactly one guess as to who this is.
