Cute & Fun, By Nuknuk

Our kids love eating eggs in all forms, but love eating car shaped eggs the best. The concept is simple - you put a hot peeled hard boiled egg in the center of the mold, close the lid, and snap shut. You then toss the whole thing into a bowl of cold water, wait about 10 minutes, and then open it up to find a perfectly molded shaped egg. This thing is easy to use, and your kids will eat a shaped egg - it's just that cool.We have several tips on making the perfect shaped egg:1. Open up the mold and wet the inside surface just in case your egg decides to stick (though it shouldn't).2. Put in a hot egg. The shape of the mold will guide you as to how to place the egg. Here the head of the fish is wider in the bottom, so the fat end of the egg goes that way.3.

Clever Way to Serve Eggs, By Daniel G. Chan

Having previously squished eggs into squares before pickeling and then taking them to a potluck, how could I resist entertaining folks with fun fish? The forms are very sturdy and well-made. The instructions that come w/ the product are in Japanese, but previous experience yielded egg-cellent results: Choose medium or large eggs. Hard boil. Keep egg warm while peeling by peeling it under warm running water. Place warm egg into mold; gently compress until mold can be latched closed. Leave in mold about 5 minutes, dunking in warm water to keep the egg warm during the shaping process. Unmold and amaze! The egg will hold it shape very well. Both kids and adults think these are cool and will want to know 'How did you DO that!!'
