|4 piece bread shaper, elephant rice shaper, car and fish boiled egg shapers and vegetable cutters|
My order arrived a couple of weeks ago and so far we have tried the sandwich cutter and the boiled egg shaper. Oscar loves the sandwich shapes – car, boat, train and dog – and only the crusts are wasted. I tried the boiled egg shaper last weekend for a picnic and I think I need a bit of practice, the eggs came out slightly shaped, but not as nice as in the pictures. The instructions were in Japanese (obviously), but luckily my sister-in-law who lives in Japan was in Australia for a visit and translated for me. It sounded easy – boil egg, peel, place into shaper and close, place into a bowl of water, remove and open. I think getting the shell off without gouging holes in the eggs would probably help! I probably need to buy one of those egg peeling gizmos.
On a more serious note, we all know about the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan last week and now the situation with the nuclear reactors. As well as my sister-in-law I also have a Japanese friend who lives outside Tokyo. Its pretty scary stuff. If you are able to and haven’t done so already, please consider making a donation to help the hundreds of thousand s of Japanese people left homeless. Donations can be made a number of charities, including the Red Cross:
American Red Cross
International Red Cross
Australian Red Cross
