We will never dye again! This little plastic contraption was the best entertainment on Easter weekend. We probably colored close to 100 eggs! The kids started out using plastic eggs that I've had sitting around from previous Easter holidays. I also bought a pack of sharpies for more color options. The plastic eggs worked great! The are very light-weight though and when you color the ends, it may get off balance and pop out.
But the kids would help each out by slightly holding down the other end while the other friend colored the opposite end. We used it the next day on real eggs and even the adults wanted in on the fun! It's just so 'satisfying' watching it spin. I just went online to buy the ornament one for Christmas before they jack up the prices! Genius product! Kept the kids entertained longer than most toys/activities.
