To Easy Reviewed by bert horrocks on 2011-09-11 ****
The egg was simple to make. I made adjustments, I made the shape of the white, more irregular so that it looks like a real egg, and then I added a small bit of stuffing (yellow yarn) under the yolk to mimic the puffiness. My 2 yr old loves playing wiht the yarn toys I make, so we'll play a food fight without all the mess!
