20+ Easter egg hunts around the Valley

Doesn't Easter make you HOPPY? We found a product to help you get extra festive without the mess. Shark Tank invested in it. So should you?

It's called The EggMazing Egg Decorator. Click here to see the infomercial. Click here to see an article about how much Shark Tank invested.

Before you get to the fun, you still have to boil eggs the old-fashioned way. The instructions call for large or extra large eggs, and you'll need four AA batteries.

After our eggs chilled and were room temperature, we grabbed the six, non-toxic markers that were provided and got ready to color the eggs.

The EggMazing Egg Decorator is a cute, egg-shaped contraption. Place your egg inside, turn it on, and the wheels spin the egg while you move the tip of your marker across it to color. It was very simple, and not super messy. The first couple eggs seemed to dry instantly, and the striped designs quickly covered the entire egg. There wasn't any wait time.

After decorating nearly half a dozen eggs, I started to notice there were two lines on the eggs where the wheels spun it. They weren't super dark, but made almost purple-colored lines around the top and bottom of the egg. This was most likely caused by the marker ink not drying on the wheels between use.

I also decided to test out how messy it would get if you completely colored the egg in one solid color. When I picked it up, I still got marker on my finger, and the dye when through the shell into the egg. The instructions say the markers are not toxic, but the instructions state you should not eat the colored eggs. So, if you're strictly going for design, this is a good choice. If you want to eat the eggs after, maybe not.

I tested out making squiggly lines, coloring in the opposite direction, but it didn't really work, and almost knocked the egg out of the product.

We bought The EggMazing Egg Decorator for $19.98 at Walmart. So, where does it rank on our Bull or No Bull Meter? I'm going with... NO BULL! Overall, it truly was an EGGcellent outcome!
