    Does anything think that Ferrero or another company may seek to buy the patent for the plastic shell that encases the toy?

    YOW are already planning a US listing in late 2015/early 2016 and I am just wondering why a company might not just swoop in a buy up the company and the patent for use in other products as we know that kids around the world love the concept (many don't really care about the chocolate).

    Im not sure why there is hesitation from the market, perhaps they think it is too good to be true.

    someone said it was 30 cents profit to YOW per unit, is that from a published report?
