|I have spent years on a quest for the perfect fake egg. For me, this one isn't it, but your idea of "perfect" will be different than mine depending on what you want to do with it. Allow me to shed some light so you can decide for yourself…
This is about the size of a large egg. It's very white, isn't too shiny, and has a tight vertical seam. There's a small air hole in the very bottom that allows the egg to be compressed. Due to the thickness of the silicon, it expands all by itself so you'll have to secure it if you want it to stay compressed. It expands to full size very quickly and easily.
For parlor work, I think this would pass as a real egg, provided that you are mindful of lighting that might highlight the seam. But only those in the front row would be likely to spot it, so you don't have to be overly paranoid about it.
Ten dollars is a reasonable price for a prop that will surely last for years, if it meets your needs.
