Tens of thousands of kinder surprise eggs washed up on the shore of German island of Langeoog after a heavy storm in the area.
Kids and adults rushed to the beaches covered in red, blue and yellow capsules with toys inside. They stretched to over a few miles in length.
“There were probably more than 100.000 eggs”, the mayor of Langeoog said. While the children were smiling and laughing, he didn’t find this ordeal amusing at all.
“This is very bad for the environment and a great danger for all the living organisms”, he pinted out.
The authorities believe that the eggs came from a Danish container ship that lost containers during the storm.
The kinder surprise eggs washed up without their chocolate coating, and there were also plastic bags with Star Wars Lego figurines alongside.
