Adorable little eggs in a carton – no batteries required
on April 6, 2017
I picked up this set to use in an Easter Egg hunt for my one year old granddaughter. I placed the eggs inside larger plastic eggs and set the carton part of the toy in her basket. She had loads of fun “finding” the eggs (which I placed pretty much in plain sight!) and opening them to find the Tomy Eggs. She then had fun placing the eggs in the container.
The carton looks like the container you buy eggs in at the grocery. It's yellow and has a stiff latch. I worked the latch until it was more easily pliable but at her age, she is keeping it open most of the time.
There are six eggs. They each fit into a unique spot in the carton as there is a shape on the bottom of the egg which matches a shape on the appropriate spot in the carton. Each of the eggs open by taking off the top part of the egg. They all “chirp” when you push down on the colorful part of the egg once the top is removed. The inside part of the egg has a unique color that matches the removable top of the egg. The tops all fit on every egg, so a child can mix and match them.
I like the toy for sheer play value – its cute and a young toddler can easily make the eggs “chirp”. I really appreciate that it is a toy that does not require batteries (the chirps are made by a whistle action that happens when you push down on the top.) I also like it for its educational value – colors and shapes. My granddaughter is loving it and her brother, who is 3.5 years old is also having fun with it – teaching his sister all about colors.
