Here is one that was passed down in Eastern Europe when I used to live there. It could be cherished either as a toy for a child, but mainly it was used as a decoration for the Easter egg. My husband came up even with another use - to "decorate" your soft boiled egg and keep it warm before you sit down to eat it. Of course, you need to put it over an unbroken (shelled) cooked egg. I think that is a great idea.
