I agree with all the other reviews about how great this looks, and that it makes a really fun gift. But I was a bit disappointed with how light this egg cup is. The base isn't weighted and my nephew knocked his egg over a couple of times when he was dipping his soldiers in. Don't get me wrong, this is as fun as you would expect it to be, especially with the soldier cutter which works brilliantly, but it isn't as good quality as I was hoping for. Great novelty gift for kids and adults alike.
