Today we are talking about something Educational and that educational thing is the Faberge Eggs. What’s that, you may ask?

First of all, The Faberge egg is named after Peter Carl Faberge – a jeweler who worked for the Tsars of Russia between 1885 and 1917.

Russian Tsars did not care about the ordinary Easter eggs and ordered Peter Carl Faberge to create some Jeweled Easter eggs for Alexander III and his son Nicholas II.

Needless to say, these eggs looked cool to those Russians. Needed to say, Faberge created 69 eggs. The Tsar liked these eggs and he used to give them every year as a gift to his wife.

Why is it so cool? Well, The killer-idea about the Faberge eggs is that there was a gift inside of every of those eggs. An unknown one. Kinder Surprise now uses the idea, err…
