At the 2018 Toy Fair New York (click for my highlights video) I stumbled across the EggMazing Egg Decorator and was totally blown away. It's basically a cute little machine that spins the egg while you hold the marker, creating a unique design every time. I regrettably didn't try it out myself, but last month at the 2019 Toy Fair New York (see my blog post & video here), I ran across their table again and they had added a new product, the TreeMendous Christmas Tree Ornament Decorator, which allows you the same fun, unique, and mess-free decorating but this time for round Christmas tree ornaments (that come with the kit)!
**edited to add at the 2020 New York Toy Fair (watch that video here) we discovered their DinoMazing decorating kit (with tiny dinosaurs and slime inside the eggs that crack open - OMG so cool!! video/review linked at bottom of this post)
So, as a blogger does, I reached out and they sent us BOTH products to review! Watch our demo video to see how easy and mess-free it is to decorate Easter Eggs with EggMazing Easter Egg Decorating Kit, even for our 3 year old twins!!
The EggMazing kit is incredibly easy and quick to set up - you just need 4 AA batteries and some eggs. I googled and found this recipe produced perfectly hard boiled eggs:
The 8 markers included in the kit are non-toxic and certified lead free, so as long as you handle the eggs safely and don't have them out of the fridge too long, eat away! After ours were beautifully decorated, I actually got my kids to eat hard boiled eggs for the first time in their lives! HA! Win win!!
Now, it's not 100% mess-free, but pretty close! You are dealing with markers after all, and markers + toddlers = uncertainty. You'll see Mia manages to get a dot of marker on her shirt, and a bit on her fingers (I would expect no less from her). But, compared to the stinky vinegar dye splatter messes we're used to with traditional Easter egg dipping, this was 200% better, and our little ones could actually do this unassisted! We did have trouble one time with the spinning wheels picking up some of the marker and then transferring that onto our egg. But the instructions have a simple solution, just wipe the wheels clean with rubbing alcohol.
So, if you're ready for fun, easy, relatively mess-free Easter egg decorating with kids, the EggMazing kit is a MUST!!
