Emily S: Wonderful egg shakers! I use them for my Music Together class, and they work great. If the top should happen to pop off (only happened to one egg), there's a small plug inside to keep the beads from falling out. I appreciate that, as other eggs I've used have occasionally cracked, spilling tiny beads everywhere, which is not good when you have little ones around. Great eggs! Mar 2, 2014

A shopper asked: are these egg shakers better than the jumbo shakers? Feb 21, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Karla D: I haven't used the jumbo shakers, so I can't compare. But I can give a solid recommendation for these egg shakers. I've used them in an elementary music class setting, but the best test was when I spent 2 years contracting music classes in preschools. Every 30 minutes, several days a week, these were passed out, used by 3- and 4-year-olds, and then tossed (or sometimes thrown!) back into the box. I have never had one break - the seal on these is on top instead of around the center like an Easter egg - they fit in small hands easily, and they sound good for a plastic egg. I've purchased them for my current school AND for my personal collection. Apr 28, 2013
Reply to Karla Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Sheryl M: I use these shakers with student from kindergarten through 5th grade and they seem to fit perfectly into their hands. I don't think I'd need them any larger or they might slip out of their hands. Feb 22, 2013
Reply to Sheryl Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Caroline C: These are the best shakers I have bought in 10 years. My students from age 5 to 16 love them! Teach the children to hold them loosely in the palm of the hand and you cannot go wrong! Enjoy! Feb 22, 2013
Reply to Caroline Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Catherine H: I don't know much about the jumbo shakers but I like these eggs because they have a nice sound and they do not break easily like many other egg shakers I have bought for my business before. Feb 24, 2013
