I bought the lion and the elphant, there are beautiful made, would love to buy the giraffe and fish, but are not available. They are really wonderful and a trick to get them to stand up, is placing them over a cap of a juice bottle.

I bought the zebra and giraffe and both are beautiful. Very well done. These are the size of a very large real egg. The thing I wish they would come out with is stands for them. You have to be creative to get to stand up. I love them and wish I could get the swirl and jungle.

I got the lion and I love it. It's a little bigger than a real chicken egg, is wonderfully painted and smooth to the touch. Beautiful.

Judging from the other reviews, the elephant design must be popular because that (swirl) is what I got, too. Nice and sturdy and looks just like the picture. Now I need a decorative egg stand to put it on.

Great gift for an elephant collector! Only wish I had seen the other elephant but too late now!

I bought the Lion and the Elephant. I LOVE them! Better than depicted in the picture. Larger than I expected also. I bought them as a gift for a friend and she loved them!

I bought the elephant and will come back to buy more. The artisty is excellent. Hint-bottlecaps make good egg stands.
