I realize toddlers aren't the target market for these egg shakers, but my twins absolutely love them. They fit perfectly in their little hands, are durable, the sound is very satisfying, and there's two for each of them. Plus, they are very affordable.
I use them for minor percussion while listening to or playing music and plan to use them for studio and meditative reasons. They are all clearly labeled by sound level. They each carry a distinct tone so if you are using them all at the same time, you can pick their sound out individually. The red and black are the loud and extra loud eggs, and they have a tinny sound. For my personal preference I use and like the white and grey eggs the most. They have soft sounds (especially the white) and are much more soothing than rattling on the ears. It all depends on what sound you are going for. Holding the egg sideways and swishing it back and forth can create a much quieter sound from the louder eggs that can be more soothing that normally shaking them.
The shape of the eggs makes them fairly versatile - there is so much more one can do with these shakers than you would believe. Remember that the sound depends on not just the product but how you hold and handle it! :)
I would recommend this to any musician for studio or jam session use. It would also be a nice addition to a drum circle and would add a nice touch to a minor percussion set or music teacher's inventory. I would think it should also make for great meditative use, especially the white egg. This would also suffice as an amusing toy for a child of any age, and it seems safe for biting, throwing, stomping etc. as the shell is very durable. I would caution that its advertised use is specifically for percussion, though. The contents of the egg are no doubt harmful to children if they find a way out of the shell.
Buy it, the price is a value and it makes for a fun addition to every day life.

The medium, loud and very loud eggs are quite similar in the sound they make, just more harsh towards the very loud end. The soft shaker is completely different - probably filled with sand instead of what sounds like grit in the others. It makes a wonderful shhhhh sound that is very easy to control - my favourite by far, although maybe too quiet for playing with too many other instruments; it would be perfect for home/studio recording where you can control the levels.
These eggs are great to have at jam sessions where there are people who don't play and instrument - anyone can grab one of these and join in.
white = 'soft'
grey = 'medium'
red = 'loud'
black = 'extra loud'
For studio recording I prefer the white one, but for stage the grey or red are preferable for me. They're really good quality - I've dropped them several times but they still look as good as new!
The howling starts and we all end up singing. Wives like them a lot. They’re very tactile.
Good fun and sound lovely.
