Surprise Eggs Kitty Style

I first found these lovely Hello Kitty surprise eggs in Topshop at Easter 2008- they are so sweet! Inside is some candy (hmm), some stickers (ooooooh) and a little kitty figure (yay!).
I did not see them return this year but found the figures in these gifts at Claire's Accessories (they do have some nice HK stuff). On the plus side you're guarenteed to get the one you want, but then it is stuck to the base and could be tricky to separate.
Yesterday I went to Manchester with college to go to the UCAS art & design event and look round the various university stands.
I also went to abakhan haberdashery in Oldham Street to go on a bit of a ribbon spree, and while successfully staying away from the basket of lovely tweeds (got a gorgeous pink one last time to make into a Chanel style pencil skirt) and all the yummy vintage shops, I was drawn into Forbidden Planet (a collectables shop, very expensive for Twilight fans- there was so much merchandise) by some very pretty Hello Kitty items in the window. They had some really unusual plush toys and things. I had been hoping for some Hello Kitty Pearl Cards as my local W H Smiths has sold out :( and my collection is not quite complete, but was very happy to find a tray of the surprise eggs. I also got a HK goody bag, but considering some past shopping trips spending £6.50 is not so bad! And I also went out with a very lovely friend, who (un)fortunately encourages me in my spending and I do likewise in return (she likes florals too) and managed to only buy drinks etc! I was very proud, and did not have to come home and tell me lovely mum about going over budget as usual. :)
Even more of a surprise with the eggs is that there aren't 12 designs now- there are 24!! :O I really want the ballerina one (circled in pink above).
Below are my new ones: :) I think the left one is rather cute.
