Snow White Furuta Gashapon Figures

Furuta Confectionery Co., Ltd. is a manufacturer of chocolate and candies in Japan. In the late 1990s-early 2000s, they issued a Snow White collection of nine tiny gashapon (vending machine) figures. Made of PVC plastic. "© Disney Enterprises, Inc."

These were part of the Choco egg series. They came packaged in paperboard boxes. Inside each was a foil-covered Choco egg (hollow egg-shaped hard chocolate). Inside this was a smaller plastic capsule. Inside this were figure pieces and the paper instructions. Each character would then need to be assembled to create the set seen below. One figure per egg.
