This is absolutely awful!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been a huge success and sparked a new generation of fans.

The only problem is, kids who are just discovering the galaxy far, far away haven't been able to easily get their hands on one of their favorite characters from the flick, Rey (Daisy Ridley).

While we've reported on both Hasbro action figures as well as the Star Wars-themed Monopoly game leaving out the lead character, we now have a bit more insight as to why this happened!

So Sad — French Toddler Chokes To Death On Toy Inside A Kinder Surprise Chocolate Egg

| Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadFrancophiliaFoodToysViral: KidsViral: News

So sad.

This is truly tragic.

Over the weekend, a three-year-old girl died after choking on the toy that came inside the Kinder Surprise chocolate egg she was eating.

A prosecutor confirmed the French toddler's death on Wednesday.

The child's mother — who was with her daughter at the time — said that when the little one was eating the sweet, she accidentally swallowed a plastic wheel that broke off the toy which was in the egg.

The lawyer said:

"The child's grandfather arrived quickly and managed to extract the object."

However, the girl sadly went into a coma and died on Saturday. The autopsy confirmed she passed away from "mechanical asphyxiation."

A warning on the treat's packaging explains they shouldn't be consumed by children ages 3 and under.

30 billion eggs — made by Italian company Ferrero — have been sold across the globe, containing one of 8,000 different kinds of surprises inside.

Those sales have never taken place in the US, since the country has very strict laws about toys being hidden in candy, but the company's website stresses that safety is a top priority, writing:

It's about time!

As we previously reported, Hasbro made a MAJOR flub AGAIN by leaving out the character of Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, from their newly released Star Wars-themed Monopoly game.

The company had previously failed to include the lead female character from The Force Awakens in certain toy sets and instead included generic stormtroopers.

Both of their blunders caused fans to take to social media and complain about the missing main character by using the hashtags #WheresRey and #WhereIsRey.

Apparently the toy company has received so much backlash that they decided to do something about it! They're now going to include the fan-favorite character of Rey in an updated version of the game!

A spokesperson for Hasbro released a statement saying:

Srsly?!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been a MASSIVE hit at the box office and even sparked a new generation of interest in the sci-fi adventure!

Since the film was mainly made to attract a new fan base, it introduced several new characters like Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Finn (John Boyega), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and Rey (Daisy Ridley).

While all the new characters have been great additions to the franchise, toy companies like Hasbro have already received some flak for not including Rey in most of their merchandise.

We thought they'd learn their mistake the first time around, but apparently Hasbro is at it again and they somehow left out Ridley's character AGAIN… this time in their Star Wars-themed Monopoly game.

According to the the description on the toy company's website, the game only features four player tokens, all of which are male
