A selection of the best Easter eggs for kids 2022

M&S Colin the Caterpillar Easter egg, Thorntons dinosaur Easter egg, and Kinnerton Paw Patrol Easter gift set are just a few of the best Easter eggs for kids in this year's roundup. 

If you're looking for the perfect Easter egg for your little ones this April, we've got plenty to choose from. Think Cadbury, Hotel Chocolat, we've even included a Hot Wheels Easter egg on Amazon. All the chocolate eggs included in this collection are under £15, are available to buy online, and make perfect Easter gifts for kids (opens in new tab).

"The best Easter eggs for kids are ones that taste delicious - so factor in their favourite kind of chocolate and don't waste cash on exotic flavours since most kids' tastes are pretty simple," says Goodto's Consumer Editor Heidi Scrimgeour (opens in new tab).

"But packaging is also super important and kids are just as likely to remember a fancy box that was fun to open or one featuring their favourite characters as they are to enjoy the chocolate egg itself. You could even opt for a personalised Easter egg (opens in new tab) if you fancy. Finally, don't get hung up on sugar content vs. cocoa content - Easter is not the time to focus on nutrition!"

Lindt Gold Bunny Easter Egg

Delivery: Delivered within 3-5 days

What we think: Available in milk chocolate and white chocolate varieties, this thick chocolate Easter egg comes with not one but two delicious Lindt Gold Bunny chocolates included. "The chocolate egg was a hit with our seven-year-old taste-tester, who found the white chocolate very much to her liking. Unlike other white chocolate she has tasted, this isn't too rich or sugary. The chocolate bunnies were so popular that a bit of a squabble broke out over who would get to try them. Fortunately, that meant we broke them into pieces and shared them out, so even the adults got a look in," says our Consumer Editor Heidi Scrimgeour.

The egg itself is small, nut-free, and made with milk chocolate. It's a great gift set if you're looking for something a bit more than an Easter egg this year.

Giant Kinder Egg

Delivery: Named day delivery available

What we think: Watch your little one's face light up when they see this giant Kinder egg. Like a traditional Kinder Egg, this Easter egg is hiding a surprise toy inside. The toys vary from egg to egg, all of which will need to be assembled just like a classic Kinder Egg. Keep in mind that Kinder Egg toys can contain small parts so this egg is not suitable for younger children.
