Whats the deal with "mini brands" 5 surprise items
Seems the older i get, the more ridiculous the "hottest item" of the season is. Electric Hamsters one year (Zzu Zzu pets), toy finger monkeys (Fingerlings) a few years ago.

This year.... Mini brands? What in tarnation? My 5 and 8 year old want as many of these as can be found. Should be $5 per capsule, but as you'll see there's a black market for them. I found 4 locally and am hunting for more. Surely i'm not the only one perplexed by these things. My 15 year old daughter says they're super popular because of "Tik Tok" .

So if anyone has leads on where to find them, let me know. Has to be online though because if Walmart in West Valley has some, that doesnt help me in Texas



Even found a Washington Post article about them from May.
