Our kids love eating eggs in all forms, but love eating car shaped eggs the best. The concept is simple - you put a hot peeled hard boiled egg in the center of the mold, close the lid, and snap shut. You then toss the whole thing into a bowl of cold water, wait about 10 minutes, and then open it up to find a perfectly molded shaped egg. This thing is easy to use, and your kids will eat a shaped egg - it's just that cool.

We have several tips on making the perfect shaped egg:
1. Open up the mold and wet the inside surface just in case your egg decides to stick (though it shouldn't).
2. Put in a hot egg. The shape of the mold will guide you as to how to place the egg. Here the head of the fish is wider in the bottom, so the fat end of the egg goes that way.
3. If you have egg white bits that got squished out at the sides, you can clean the ragged bits up with a sharp knife. If yolk gets squished out - chop up the egg for egg salad.
4. If you want colored eggs that are also molded, you need to add the coloring or dye before molding them. Presuming you are using a liquid type of coloring method (such as dunking the eggs in water with dye in it), if you put the eggs in a water bath after molding, the moisture will cause the eggs to swell back up, losing the molding detail.So, once you have peeled your eggs, instead of dunking them in plain hot water, put them in colored hot water until they have achieved the color you want. Then mold them as per above. The seam will show white, but the form and overall color are there.

These molds seem to be made of quality plastic. They are cute. We recently watched YT videos about bento boxes and it include creating eggs into fun shapes. We couldn't wait to try it. The molds are made in Japan and the instruction is also in Japanese so expect to get the how-to somewhere else.

Make sure not to scratch the egg while removing the shell. You have to put it in the mold while still hot. It is impossible to peel it while hot so the trick is too peel it under running faucet. I place the egg in upright position and close it gently. It is OK to have some part of the egg to squeeze out, bigger egg is actually better than a small one to make sure you fill every nook of the mold. Snap the latch and place the egg in the refrigerator for about ten minutes. You can also color the egg if you immerse it into water with food color on it for a few minutes. Really fun, specially if you have kids in the house.

Having previously squished eggs into squares before pickeling and then taking them to a potluck, how could I resist entertaining folks with fun fish? The forms are very sturdy and well-made. The instructions that come w/ the product are in Japanese, but previous experience yielded egg-cellent results: Choose medium or large eggs. Hard boil. Keep egg warm while peeling by peeling it under warm running water. Place warm egg into mold; gently compress until mold can be latched closed. Leave in mold about 5 minutes, dunking in warm water to keep the egg warm during the shaping process. Unmold and amaze! The egg will hold it shape very well. Both kids and adults think these are cool and will want to know "How did you DO that!!"

Love these egg molds...what a great way to get my children to eat hard boiled eggs!

We also like using the molds to make rice krispy treats. Spritz the inside of each side of the mold with non-stick cooking spray (or use a pastry brush and a little softened butter). Press rice krispy treat mix into each side of the mold making sure to leave a little in the middle so both sides will stick together. Gently close the mold and press firmly. Unmold a really cute rice krispy treat shape. Granted...you will not get the detail of the fish, but you do get the 3-D shape.

I love these little things! I got them to try and get my son with sensory processing disorder to eat eggs. It did not work however they are still useful! my 4 year old son wanted a "nemo rice ball" so I tried it so found that if you put sticky rice and over fill each side put your thumb in the middle and add filling like meat or tuna and press it together you get cute rice balls! My son loves them! To make the rice orange you can paint on some food coloring when you take it out i mix the food coloring a bit of left over ramen chicken seasoning in water and paint the fish orange leaving a bit white (the stripes) and the kids all go wild for these rice balls i literally can not make them fast enough they gobble them right up!

I bought the star and heart and tried those out. They require extra large eggs for it to work right. These (The car and fish, also the rabbit and bear) only require a large egg. I tested them all out on each shape(I had fun doing it also lol). Anyways I got of track. I love these molds and have lots of fun with them! So far I like the bear and the car the most =p

OH ALSO!!! I learned that after heating the eggs if you don't want to make more every time you can leave some hard boiled eggs in the shell and when your ready to make more molds just put the eggs in a bowel and microwave them for 1 min. then shell it and put it in the mold. It works just fine and is still yummy =)
