Because of the small parts inside the egg, which pose a choking hazard for children. Dumb, but that's the reason.
My daughter is obsessed with the youtube kinder videos. She was heartbroke when I explained to her that we could not get them here. Our government is stupid, is the only answer I can come up with. They allowed poison in baby bottles and other plastics, they allow medicines that they later found out did more harm than good, medicinal plants are illegal, really this list of idiocy goes on and on. So who cares about small parts?! Put a label on it saying not for children under 3! The law has been around long before Kinder eggs even existed. No toy embedded candy is legal. However there is a new (much crappier version) of kinder eggs that has become legal in the US. The toys are not as good and the chocolate is more like the mass produced crap here in the US. However these eggs have 2 completely separate pieces that make even the smallest child able to see there is a toy inside.
All in all, they are illegal because they can ban a candy, but they can not legally ban bad parents who don't pay attention to their child while they are eating.
I agree there are a lot of baby toys recalled because of lack of parents watching their children,there needs to be more parental observation and less focus on impossible to make " completely safe toys" .
I agree with you. Parents should take more accountability for their child's safety. They have tons of things here that kids can swallow and hurt themselves with... so I definitely agree with you. And the fine for one egg is over $1000. It's insane.
Simply because of the potential danger. It's unfortunate since some of my best memories are from Kinder Surprises as a kid.
Even outside the US though the toys have definitely changed from things that you would put together from multiple small pieces to just a few large ones. I've even seen some fully made and solid toys come out of them these days which is a shame!
