My son has recently turned 2 and for his birthday his aunt gave him the Early Learning Egg and Spoon game. The toy can be purchased from the Early Learning Centre, Mothercare and other shops such as Debenhams for around £6-7 (May 2012).
The toy is suitable for children from the age of 2. The toy comprises of 4 plastic spoons, reds, blue, green and yellow and 4 plastic eggs that open up to reveal 4 bean bag fried eggs.
The aim of the game is to put the complete egg on your spoon and race to the end of the garden, or a defined distance, without dropping your egg, first past the finish line wins. It’s a simple and clean way to have fun in the garden and its great fun for all the family. The spoons are well made of sturdy plastic, as are the eggs, although we have only had this toy for a few weeks, it is lasting well and has been used a lot in the garden recently. The fried egg bean bags are well made from material and are lovely to look at. The handle of the spoons are quite chunky and easy to hold.
The toy helps to encourage your child to balance and also coordinate in terms of looking after the egg and spoon whilst running to a defined place, its great exercise and also teaches children how to compete in a fun way. My son played this game over and over on the day of his birthday with his cousins who are aged 5, 7 and 14, plus the adults also had a few goes. As the eggs are not real you can play indoors and out and there is no need to clear up sticky broken eggs.
Overall I would recommend this toy to others as it well, made, easy to play and is fun for all the family, plus at around £6 its good value for money. I wounder if you could get the egg and spoon race entered as an olympic sport?
