Humpty Dumpty Fairy-Tale Comes to Life in London

Just wrapped up in London was UK's biggest Easter egg hunt! As part of Lindt's The Big Egg Hunt, 103 giant Easter eggs, that were each decorated by leading artists, were hidden in cities across the country. All the money raised from the hunt went directly to Action for Children, an agency committed to helping the most vulnerable and neglected children in the UK.

Apart from all the hidden Easter eggs, one of the most unique sculptures from the event was a 4-foot Humpty Dumpty chocolate one brought to life at Covent Garden in Central London. It seemed sweet enough just sitting on the wall while two soldiers were guarding him. Just as the fairy-tale is written, however, Humpty Dumpty soon “had a great fall” and “All the king's horses and all the king's men, couldn't put Humpty together again.”
