Product Description

Amazon.com

This ordinary-looking carton of eggs is a unique shape-sorting toy; it stands out from the rest because it's attractive and adorable, not just functional. Open the robin's egg-blue carton to find six perfectly white eggs. The surprise is that within each egg (which splits in two) is one of six shapes and colors. Just pulling out the eggs and opening them will be a challenge at first. With experience comes more manual dexterity. Young kids will be able to recognize the orange diamond, the green triangle, the red star, and match up the eggshells in time. A great toy for playing grocery store, too. --Lynne Sampson

I tried to reduce the poor quality plastic kitchen toys and use good quality products instead.
Mummy
I give it 4 stars because some of the eggs are a bit too hard for her to pull apart and some that come apart with barely a touch.
MamaTick
I love that the eggs are fun for pretend play and that there is a shape and color matching element as well.

Having purchased many of the Hide and Squeak Eggs sets for my son and birthday gifts for other babies, I thought I'd give this egg set a try: it's not worth it. The Express Egg Shape Sorter just isn't as enjoyable. You have to line up the pieces just right to get them to connect, and for little hands and little babies, this just isn't possible yet. Also, the case is very flimsy and the whole thing just feels so cheap.

The Hide N Squeak Eggs come in a really fun case, the shells intermix and young babies can connect them on the different eggs very easily. Even the eggs are cute, when you press them they squeak! It is difficult for my son to put the egg shapes in the right place in the egg carton, but not a big deal; he enjoys playing with the eggs while he's learning to master this skill.

The Express Egg Sorter has limited appeal and use. Really wouldn't buy these again. I definitely recommend the Hide N Squeak set.

I'm puzzled by some of the other reviews...my child's experience with the egg sorter is completely different from those who report difficulty and frustration. A friend of mine gave it to my son when he was 2, and indicated that it was her daughter's favorite toy. My son found it equally entertaining. When other toys were cast aside permanently, it was one that he would go back to. Visiting friends were always attracted to it as well. When he at last outgrew it, I kept it in the very small collection of sure winners for visitors and potential grandchildren. Yes, there is a right way to put each egg together, and a right way to fit the egg in to the crate, but it is designed to promote pattern recognition and build dexterity. Challenge is good! I agree the handle is flimsy but it hasn't been a problem in the 13 years that we've had ours. Of course it only got daily use for about 2 years. I'm now buying another set for nephews who want their own!

Let me count the ways that this is a horrible toy:
If you put an egg in the carton wrong end down it can get VERY stuck and what kid knows to put the skinny end down?
The case is flimsy plastic.
The carton says 18 months+ but it is a choking hazard for kids under 3...hmmm.
The "quote" on the side is supposedly by a 2 year old - "With the Egg-Shape Sorter learning my shapes was over easy!" - what 2 year old says that!!

The plastic is so so cheap- the latch almost broke and clearly bent when I opened it the first time (the plastic in blue and there is a white bend mark in it- if that makes sense.) The eggs themselves don't come apart with reasonable force in my opinion. My nephew has the TOMY set and loves it so I am returning these and purchasing that.

Eggs were too hard to open for the adults. Only one or two opened easily so there was no play value for the kids

We had these eggs 30 years ago when my children were babies, and I was so happy to see that they are still available for my grandchildren to play with. Perfect for kitchen play, these span a wide age range.

Like the play value of the toy, and all three of the grandchildren seem to enjoy matching the shapes, but it is sometimes hard for my two year twin grandsons to get the eggs apart. The good thing is I think it they are getting easier to get apart as they are used more.

The squeaky egg set comes apart instantly, the eggs are very shallow. These eggs are bigger, stay together longer, there are actual shapes that matter. The squeaky ones have a shape only on the bottom of the carton which is just annoying. More to do with these eggs, and we have chickens so good play eggs are important!
