Another Egg Toy

An interesting toy that has the children looking at it from many angles.
I’ve had this toy for several years (another thrift store find that even my husband liked playing with).  I bring it out a couple of times a year and it challenges the children to move the eggs from one level to the next by turning dials, rotating and pulling levers.
The children are so intense when they are playing it reminds me of the facial expressions I see when someone is playing a video game.
It’s a challenge that they want to achieve.  Learning how to move those eggs takes patience and dexterity.  For those that are first using the toy they spin or move the levers too quickly and it won’t move the eggs so they learn to slow their movements to be successful.
