    L Wierzbicki: You don’t need to worry about changing the sort to a different method… it won’t affect the way eggs show up

    Hi Susan… The way we have it set up is to allow only 1 of each item in your cart (for free) when you order. We do this to try and make the gifts last for as many people as possible.

    Hi all, we’re dealing with a little slowness… we hate it as much as you do We’re on it, and we’re hoping to be back to normal shortly…

    Hi everyone! It’s a beautiful Saturday morning here in Michigan (albeit a little chilly). I wanted to address a couple of the recent questions.

    Regarding the speed of the hunt and the site, we hear you Every year, we try hard to prepare for all the extra traffic we get during the hunt. We consume ridiculous amounts [...]

    Fenya: No, there aren’t any eggs inside those “popups” this year.

  • Steve commented on the blog post Easter Egg Hunt 2016   2 months ago

    Just a quick non-Easter-Egg update for everyone… I know that some of you noticed that there were missing comments in the Design Gallery. Those have now been restored Remember, the Design Gallery does NOT have any eggs hidden there, so this comment is not really related to the hunt. But I wanted to pass the info [...]

    Hi everyone! We’ve been busy with today’s big new product launch, and I haven’t been on top of your questions–I apologize!

    Stone Treasures: No need to use the magnifying glass this year.

    Jessica J: Great question! And I don’t really have a good answer for you We really don’t know what the total page count is. I can [...]

    L D: You have a lot more determination than I do, to be able to use your phone to search for eggs

    Because there are so different sizes of phones and tablets out there, we aren’t able to test every egg on every size of device… and I can imagine that there could be a few eggs [...]

    beadngirlee: No problem at all. Let me see if this helps. Under the Findings menu at the top of the site, click on Bails. From that page, you can click “Next” and “Prev” to see all 4 pages in that listing. There is also a “View All” option that will show you everything on one single [...]

    hendersonic: This year, we have a long list of prizes, and you use the eggs you’ve found as “currency” to redeem them. For instances, there are some prizes that cost 2 eggs, and others that cost 50 or more eggs. You can “spend” as many eggs as you find. For example, if you’ve found 100 eggs, [...]

    Hi Desiree! Yes, there may be eggs under those pages. Usually, product listings start out on an “all styles” page, and you can filter into different styles (which may also contain eggs). But you’ll never have to click on the separate “View All” link when it is present over on the right side. We do this [...]

    To Elaine and the other hunters asking about multiple eggs on a single page:

    I don’t believe there are any cases where more than one egg are on a page. I don’t want to say for sure if it has ever happened in the past (or will again in the future), but wouldn’t worry about it for [...]

    Good morning everyone! I know that a lot of you had some trouble loading the site at times last night, and we made a lot of changes overnight to speed things up. It should be snappier going forward.

    We’ll be keeping an eye on things all day to make sure that things are running as smoothly as [...]

    Hi all! It was a long night of hunting, and I know a lot of you had some trouble reaching the site at times. We made lots of updates this morning in order to make things faster, and we hope it helps.

    One of the things we had to do was start this list of comments from [...]
