Egglo Entertainment Review

Egglo Review

Hunting Easter eggs is usually something that is done during the day, but lately we have been hiding and finding glow-in-the-dark Egglo Eggs. 
Egglo Review
In our package from Egglo Entertainment we received one dozen Glow In The Dark Egglo Eggs, The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure storybook, the Egg-cellent Easter Adventure audio download, the Egglo Treasures Scripture Scrolls, and the Egg-cellent Easter Adventure Program Guide. This program is recommended for children ages 4-13.
The Egg-cellent Easter Adventure is a 40 page full color glossy 8 1/2 X 11 storybook. The author, Darcie Cobos, is a detective specializing in family violence. In the book the characters are led on a mystery by a glowing egg. The egg transports them around the world as they discover new clues that lead them to their next destination. At last they learn the Easter story and find out that Jesus is the best treasure of all. The regular price of the book is $12.99, but right now it is on sale for $9.99. The audio download for the Egg-cellent Easter Adventure is the book being read. It is available as a download for $2.99.

To go along with the book there is the Egg-cellent Easter Adventure Program Guide that is available as a download for $14.99. There are 60 pages that will help you put on an Easter event. There are invitations, devotionals, object lessons, coloring pages, snack ideas, & tips for decorating. 

There are 12 Egglo Glow In The Dark Easter Eggs in a box. Four different colors (pink, yellow, green, blue) are in each dozen for $11.99 or the sale price is $9.99. Some of the eggs can be decorated with the optional stickers that match the program or anything else you would like to use. They need to be charged in the light before they will glow. 
Egglo Treasures Scripture Scrolls are little scrolls that are small enough to put inside the egg. Each scroll can be unrolled to read the scripture. The scroll itself is made of plastic and the paper rolls around it. Twelve come in a package for $4.29.

The light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:5

John 1:5 is the verse that Egglo Entertainment has based their program on. They use the glow-in-the dark Easter eggs program to point children to Jesus, who is the light of the world. 
I used the program with all three of my girls ages 9, 11 &12. We read the story together and discussed it using some of the ideas and questions from the curriculum guide. We used the program at home, so we didn't use any of the decorating ideas, but I can see where they would be fun for a church class. Neither the book nor the curriculum guide uses any church doctrine instead you are instructed to read about the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ from the four Gospels. 
Of course the glow-in-the-dark eggs were a huge hit around here especially for my 9 year old, she loves them and has hidden them over and over. All three of my girls know about Jesus and His death, burial, and Resurrection, and we hide Easter eggs every year, but we have never used eggs to illustrate Jesus as the light of the world. We enjoyed this program and I can see how children who are not familiar with Jesus could understand the point of the program. I think the Treasures Scripture Scrolls are wonderful & could be a big help in aiding children to memorize scripture. They roll up very well and could be easily carried in your pocket & could be used not only at Easter, but any time of year.
