Smart Egg Review & Giveaway

You might remember these smart eggs from our Stocking filler ideas post back at Christmas time. Now we’re offering one lucky reader the chance to win a smart egg to try out with their family.

These little eggs are great for anyone who enjoys puzzles and brain teasers. They require careful, logical consideration to complete, and are suitable for children aged 6 years and over. It’s a fun way for kids to work on their problem solving skills.

My 7 year old loved playing with the smart eggs and solving each one, he found the challenge really satisfying and enjoyed challenging other family members to solve them too.

To solve each egg, you have to guide the stick through the path ways starting at the top until you’re able to pull the stick out through the bottom of the egg. It sounds simple enough, but can be quite tricky!

The smart eggs come in a variety of difficulties, with one layer and two layer smart eggs available. The harder ones can take up to three hours to solve. We tried a couple of the 1 layer eggs and those were ideal for my 7 year old. The two layer ones would be a good challenge for us to move on to later on.


I would agree with the 6+ recommendation for this toy, as although my youngest was quite intrigued and interested in having a try with the eggs he wasn’t able to use them properly at his younger age (4) and could be a bit too heavy handed with it.

The smart eggs are available from Waterstones from just £5.99. Since they have an egg shape, if you’re planning ahead to Easter already this could be a great option for an alternative Easter egg, for something that will last longer than chocolate!


One lucky reader will win the Smart Egg Labyrinth puzzle in the Hive design with 1 layer, shown below.
