Green Your Easter with Hollow Wooden Eggs

Finally someone has created the perfect Easter Egg alternative to the hollow plastic eggs my kids love to hunt -- wood. I envisioned a wooden alternative long ago, but couldn't find anyone who actually made or sold it until I came across the Golden Cockerel website this season. Each egg measures  2.75" and costs $3.60. A bit of an investment at first (because of course who won't want a dozen or two?)  but they will eventually pay for themselves when they outlast those cheap, toxic plastic eggs that fall apart each year and leach toxins into your child's treats. Best thing about these wooden Easter eggs, is that kids (or grown ups) can get creative and design or paint them as they see fit.

The wooden egges are made in Russia - contact goldencockerel.com to inquire about ordering. It's a great website!

These eggs are beautiful! Are they sturdy enough for lifetime use? I'm debating between these and felted wool Easter eggs.

Marni said...

Yes - the eggs are VERY sturdy. To me, they seem more sanitary than felt eggs -- although both are beautiful. And as Jade mentioned - they ARE available on Etsy now. It's the same company. TIP: It looks like you get a better rate for SHIPPING through Etsy.

it's my etsy store actually (little walnut) ;) so I can promise you they ARE in fact from Golden Cockeral. I'm just giving a better discount on a dozen direct to customer than they do. And shipping is cost plus a little extra to cover the padded shipping envelope. They're linden wood (bass wood) so they're lightweight but also quite sturdy.
