    I used one - sort of tan-orange. Worked fine.

    Then again so did an egg-shaped rock I found.

    So I dunno.

    lanna, I answered you on the other board, but yes, you can use them. I fill them with sand and glue them shut to give some weight to them. They work as well as anything.

    The issue w/ plastic eggs is the weight. Put some rocks or change in 'em to give 'em some heft.

    All I can say is don't have 2 reply windows open at the same time while your 7 month old is trying to pull your neck hairs out <g>
