Egg Molds: Kawaii ne?


I've been planning to do a post for a while now on these egg molds I found at Daiso($1.50 for a set of two). They're so easy to use and the results are adorable. I would have better pictures but my children were hounding me for the eggs while I was taking the photos. My son even called dibbs on the blue car, go figure.
Directions:
Place hard boiled egg in mold and close. Place mold in a bowl of cold water for about 20 minutes to set.

I'm sharing the directions because the package directions are in Japanese. The first time making this I put a raw egg in the mold. Then I dropped it in boiling water. You can imagine my surprise when I discovered egg floating all over the place.

P.S. sadly this mold does not work for rice crispy treats, I tried

How neat! I would've loved that when my kids were small. What am I saying? I still love it! I wish I could find some of those around here!

What about using them for jello? Not sure they'd be easy to remove .. unless you make that firmer kind of jello.. hmmm. They're cute though!

Awesome! Not that I needed another reason to go to Daiso.

And I love that you tried it with rice crispy treats - something I would do.

I bet they would get my kids to eat eggs! I may have to try to find a set of those. Somehow I think S and K would sneak them into the playdough box. :)

Those are so cute, I'm very tempted to make them for myself, even though I don't yet have children! :-)

We have these! We got them in the spring and they were a life saver because I used them to make party favors for an impromptu egg hunt.

Hi,
they're so funny!
I have no idea if there's a Daiso shop in Europe.
Do you know where to buy them in Holland (or where to order?)

Thanks!
