Gimme, Gimme!: EggBods
These mix and match wind up toys are an eggcellent gift for kids – and adults who are still kids at heart
The Eggbods have arrived from Planet Egg, and now your children can concoct their own quirky mix-and-match wind-up characters. Created by Bluw, a gift company originating in the United Kingdom, these cute and colorful wind-ups have made their way to the United States.
Swap out the heads, hands and accessories to come up with your own special egg creation. There are eight EggBods to choose from: Crack Commando, Captain Hard Boiled, Eggbot, Fireman Scramble, Tinkershell, Eggaline, Nurse Eggwhite and Eggs Factor. And with a price of $5.99 on the Eggbod website, they make a fun and affordable collectible for your kids.
Make a robot ballerina or a nurse pirate – the combinations are endless. And once you've made your kick-butt critter, wind it up and watch it go.
The Eggbods come with small parts, so the company suggests the toys for kids ages 4-plus.
