Why would I steal my own present?
As of 4.3, this is a reward for doing the Daily Group quest
to loot presents after killing the Greench, or talking to metzen right after.
has a chance to be contained in this present. The Greench is now a Holiday World Boss, just not in an instance, hence the Daily quest and not a LFD queue.
Edit: As others have said, other pets and toys can be contained within this present, as well as 24 Justice Points if you are not capped.
According to Blizzard, there is a chance to obtain an epic weapon by opening this.
Got it right after the event started.
I was able to complete this quest this morning when the festival begun just by talking to Metzen and looting the Stolen Treats from the bags around the cave. I was alone and not in a group. My first thought was maybe someone killed the Greench already. Will have to see what happens!
So it seems the boss is a level ? "world boss" with 3.5 mil hp, and anyone can help killing without grouping up. After it's dead, you can loot the treats and save Metzen, even if you weren't there to kill it!
The boss is located in Hillsbrad Foothills (43,39)
The "Stolen Treats" are lootable only if the boss is defeated.
You don't need to be in the group for the kill to be able to loot it.
Also talk to Metzen to free him.
This is a recap of the possible loot:
(up to 26.4 with

¹ (former Winter Veil 2007 gift) also awards
¹ (former Winter Veil 2010 gift) does NOT award

¹² (former Winter Veil 2009 gift) required for
(º) You will get 26 or 27 Justice Points depending on your current real points. The game shows it as an integer, but actually is stored internally as a decimal number.
(¹) Among the loot there are presents from previous years and, in the case of the Clockwork Rocket Bot, looting it allows you to obtain the related feat of strength.
These gifts came originally contained in

and is needed for
(²) Notice that some of the items contained in this present are also sold by the toy makers and traders
The info has been gathered from all the comments (thanks to all the users) and personal and guild experience.
I just looted the quest item from the cave when someone else had killed the boss and delivered the quest. An an Epic quality dagger dropped from the Stolen Present Container!

I got a rock =(
The Greench is easily killable if you have a healer, I just did it on my 85 rogue with a shaman healer. No problems at all.
Alright as far as not getting the achievement from getting the "Clockwork Rocket Bot" check your robot very carefully, if it has a colour like " " it won't give you the achievement because the original Clockwork Rocket Bot doesn't have a colour to it, just plain old .
I really hope this helps lol had to make an account to post it, good luck.
On the other hand, if you have your plain one and want the blue one anyways you can buy it from the toy makers in Dalaran, Stormwind, and Orgrimmar.
P.S. You can buy the Red Rider Air Rifle from the toy makers too ^.^
Sorry Gwez >< I'd reply but I'm brand new to posting here so decided to edit cause I couldn't figure it out >< but ya I've gotten 2 Blues from it, my first bag on my mage was actually the blue and plain
and another when I did it for another char
"The Tiny Green Ragdoll is NOT the same one they sell in the shop!"
I don't know how this can be true since I have received the blue and green versions and neither would let me loot from present. I had both in my bank which were purchased from the shop.
So from my experience:
The Tiny Green Ragdoll IS the same one they sell in the shop!
Why is Clockwork Rocket Bot (2007 edition, not blue, not in the "contains" list?
Going to be so disappointed if I don't get the Clockwork Rocket Bot since I already have the other 3 feats of strength / winter veil gifts on my main character. My luck is always terrible for stuff like this. :(
Yep, they should make these bags BOA.
This holiday reward is another true example of terrible RNG by Blizzard...I've had the Rocket Bot since 07' and was awarded it 4 more times from doing the Winter Veil daily. No Lump of Coal. Thanks Blizz.
What is the frequency that wowhead update the database? I got a Crashin Thrashin racer from one of these, and want to see what the apparent drop rate is... to see if I had bad luck not getting Lump of Coal or just mega bad luck for getting a drop item less than 3%...
This can now contain the updated version of the Miniature Winter Viel Tree.
The stats for the updated version are as follows:
Item Level 480
3597 - 6680 Damage ( 2854.7 DPS )
+301 Hit Rating
+301 Haste Rating
Requires Level 90
Turned in the daily quest on the second toon of the day, in my present I received both the
and got the achievement
I commented last year a bit further down regarding getting a crashin thrashin racer. This year I have just got the same item again (its an uncommon item)..
I have noticed my question was downvoted for no apparent reason when it was a general question / query. I have had this item twice now and wowhead still seems to have no % figures to let me compare my luck.
If anyone is viewing this item for the 2013 Holiday information be aware that the
from the 2013 Holiday event has a chance at containing
Just got both
Wind-Up Train Wrecker
in one package. And I already have them (even payed 200g for the Wrecker when bought it from NPC long ago). And they are soulbound, so have to just vendor them.
I think BoP toys should also have some mechanism of being sold, like caging of pets.
