A Kinder surprise I really don't need

The kids bought Kinder eggs with their pocket money yesterday. They usually have a merry ol time making the toys inside. Now, some toys are designed to be used with an app - you scan the QR code and the downloaded app makes the useless piece of plastic kinder surprise toy come to life AR (augmented reality) style, it becomes a character in the games on the app and you can use the phone's camera to take pictures of the AR character in your room or to take selfies.

So my kids were having a whale of a time making the cartoon giraffe stand in different parts of the living room, changing its size from giant to teeny tiny. I could hear them squealing with laughter from the next room. Great app. Such fun.

This app stores all the photos and also adds them to your gallery. Kids are loving it. I can hear them laughing. Maybe I can share a nice one with grandma later.

Then they come running to show me their pictures. What did they take pictures of?

My 5 year old daughter's bumhole.

FFS!! I can delete the pictures from my gallery, but NOT THE APP.
shock

please tell me this doesn't send some sort of 'indecent images' alert to Ferrero HQ and I have the police knocking on my door collecting up all my electronics for forensic analysis. I need my laptop for work.
confused

On the plus side, this became an opportune moment to sit the kids down and have a little talk about 'private areas' and not taking pictures.

That’s shocking to hear. I think you should contact kinder about this.

😂 in sorry but that’s actually hilarious...

BorisandHarriet Mon 26-Oct-20 16:19:55

So can other people on the app see any photos your kids take?

That’s shocking to hear. I think you should contact kinder about this.

To warn them?

Delete the app and download it again.

“Hello Kinder? I need you to pass me through to the Head of your Bumhole Department ASAP”.

Thanks for the reports about this one - we've had a look behind the scenes and the OP has been on the site for ages without any concerns. We'll let it run for now.

This isn't a funny idea for a thread. Your children made an illegal image. It's scary to me that they thought this was ok and it's horrible that you'd post about your daughter being violated. Just not ok at all.

It will be a 'surprise' for Kinder...perhaps it is time for a gentle chat about the dark side of technology.

BuffayTheVampireLayer Mon 26-Oct-20 16:35:46

Title sounds like a headline.

QuantamBaby Mon 26-Oct-20 16:36:05

Oh good grief, I guess the crucial question is Does the App share the photos anywhere? If you delete the app would it delete all data permanently? Is there a help number on the kinder site that could tell you?

QuantamBaby Mon 26-Oct-20 16:38:12

The address to ask technical questions is mailto:contact@applaydu.com

nimbuscloud Mon 26-Oct-20 16:41:49

How old was the kid who took the photo??

SpookyNoise Mon 26-Oct-20 16:44:49

Oh dear. I’d be concerned about the images being shared by the app.

Sparklfairy Mon 26-Oct-20 16:52:24

Wow. I mean, Kinder Surprise is designed for kids so this sort of thing must happen all the time. I'd need to find out what their policy is on data being stored on their servers (what if they were hacked and the image shared on the dark web for instance?) and how to remove it from everywhere, permanently, asap.

Possibly no more unsupervised access to technology for a while OP.

Just looking at their t&cs is worrying:

I don't know. I've known a few kids in my time that would have done some questionable things that they thought were funny mostly getting their willies out

ThatGhastlyWoman Mon 26-Oct-20 17:19:33

That clause is boiler plate standard corporate speak. Essentially, they can use your stuff to market Kinder on the cheap.

Any company, or sane person, could not delete that kind of picture enough. Can you imagine the shit storm they would be in the middle of if they didn't? You should contact them ASAP to alert them to the issue.

Oh ffs is nothing funny to anyone anymore?!

Tbh I doubt you can even tell it's a butthole it probably just looks like a blurry image.

I thought it was amusing op however yeah I think it's time to have a chat about not uploading pictures of ones private parts on the internet 😂

DC3Dakota Mon 26-Oct-20 19:19:50
