Yudetama-Gokko Animal Egg Moulds

Eggs that look like rabbits, fish and even cars!  They certainly got the attention of my little Ochibi, and he gobbled up the fish before I could take photos.  I snuck in a photo of the car-egg, before he gobbled that one up, too.

Boiled eggs make easy and healthy bento fillers, but why have egg-shaped eggs, when you could have a rabbit or car instead?!

The Yudetama-gokko was surprisingly quick and easy to use.  I peeled my boiled eggs while they were still hot, put them in the mould, and gently, gently closed the lid.  Within five minutes they had taken on the shape of the mould and I now had a fish and a car. 

Make sure you use 60g eggs (Australia: XL, Japan: L,  please let me know what they call them in your country!)

  3. Hi!
    I've just recently purchased the car and fish set and I was wondering if it is necessary for the egg to remain hot when inserted into the mould??

    1. Hi Diana☆ Yes, the egg must still be hot, or at least warm, when inserted into the mould. The hotter the egg, the better the results. Once the mold is closed, you can cool it down just by putting in the fridge for 5 min, or a bowl or cold water. Once the egg has cooled, it is no longer flexible and the shape is set.
