To a kid, Easter eggs are pretty special. The variety I grew up with, and which are still the most popular in the United States, are the brightly colored, plastic type. This kind are fantastic for egg hunts; their plastic egg shells impervious to spring dew and dirt. They fit in the palm of your hand and hold within them untold wonders. Nothing to improve upon, except maybe that plastic shell, but take that away and there is nothing left but a grass-stuck chocolate, melting in the sun.
They are usually larger than the plastic eggs of my youth, but just like the plastic variety, these open up, like little boxes, to be filled with whatever treat you’d like. Some are large enough for a small stuffed animal!
My kids spied these before I could squirrel them away, so they’re a bit wrinkled and bashed from play, but have stood up remarkably well, considering that they are made of paper.
This last option is nice because, unlike the paper eggs (which can certainly be reused, if they survive one season) they are made of metal.
This is one of last year’s designs by the Danish company, Maileg. Charming!
