It can be maddening to stay indoors all the time, but thankfully there are lots of toys that can help alleviate some of that, and 5 Surprise by Zuru ranks high on our list.

The mystery item craze has been with us for some time now, and 5 Surprise has taken it to another level.Starting off as little toys, the line expanded into Mini Brands and found wild success with miniature versions of everyday items you find in grocery stores.

Mini Brands will expand even further this year with a series 2 and a Mini Brands Mini Mart, but right now you can pick up series 1 and find yourself oddly addicted and satisfied by opening a tiny version of a package of bacon.

Each Mini Brands package has five different items, and that can include things such as a sapping basket or a cart.
