My son loves these grow animals. This is a unique twist on those. We did have one egg arrive with a hole in it and another was cracked. This is my reason for the 4 stars and not 5. I placed them in water but I can not say how long it took them to hatch. My son couldn't wait and kept messing with them until he had the figures out. They are very cute and very different than any I have bought before. They are thicker and heavier. We left them in water and they grew quickly. Within 3 days, they had more than doubled in size.
I removed them and am going to let them dry out and shrink. My son loves to put his grow animals into plastic bottles to grow, We add water and a little food coloring. He keeps them all on a shelf. These will make a great addition to his collection.
These would make a great little gift to any child who enjoys grow animals. It's a unique way to present them. These aren't just for Easter but would be a hit any time of the year!
Note: I received these at a discount in exchange for my fair, honest, and unbiased opinion. It had no bearing on my review. I tested these and formed my own opinions.
