White House Easter eggs for sale


Eggs for the 2011 Easter Egg Roll are available for sale individually and in boxed sets. Purple is the bestseller. (Chuck Kennedy - The White House)
Souvenir eggs from the executive mansion’s annual Easter Egg Roll — once hot collectibles that proved you had an in at the White House — are now a dime a dozen. Well, $26.50 for a set of four.

The Post’s Reliable Source reports the much-coveted wooden eggs, previously available only by attending the egg roll alongside the president and first lady, have been available for purchase since the latter part of the Clinton administration. This year, 85,000 will be produced and sold through the National Parks Foundation. (The NPF is also selling the 2010 edition, in case you missed it.)

Tell us: Would you buy a mass-produced White House Easter egg? Or is the cache gone if you’re not getting it the old-fashioned way?
