Golden Cockerel Wooden Nesting Eggs are very high quality and can be used year after year, either nested together or played with separately to hide chocolate or other small treats for Easter. The Nesting Eggs have been hand-carved in Polkhovski Maidan, the biggest centre of traditional nesting doll production in Russia. The eggs have a flattened bottom so they are self-standing. All but the smallest egg opens up to reveal a hollow inside.

You and your child might like to draw, paint, or woodburn your set of nested eggs to make it extra special and unique to your family. Martha Stewart demonstrated this project on her TV show using a set of Golden Cockerel Nesting Eggs. Inspired by the eggs her Araucana banty hens produce, she painted hers a gradient of pale green shades. Anyone can do it, and any type of paints work well.

Outside of Easter, play with the Wooden Eggs to explore the concept of object permanence with your child (now you see it, now you don't!) or encourage their imaginative role play by suggesting they "cook" their eggs in a pretend play kitchen.

Beware of imitation nested eggs that have been mass-produced in factories in Asia. These are not the same quality as the original hollow and nesting eggs created by Golden Cockerel.

Being handcrafted from natural materials, each of Golden Cockerel's beautiful offerings is unique, with slightly different shaping, size, wood markings, grain, and knots. Wood putty may occasionally be used to fill knots.  This creates a smooth surface for the application of your own artwork.

Not suitable for children under the age of 3yo. Please do not submerge in water. Spotclean with a damp cloth. All materials and finishes used are child-safe, however they are not intended to be mouthed or wet. Please use under adult supervision. Please carefully inspect your toy before use. Small parts may break off and pose a choking hazard. Not to be used as a teether.
