Charlene Goodman made the R2D2 egg in 1981, and it’s been in the family since. Son Jeffrey, a “Star Wars fanatic,” wasn’t about to let it go. (Hard-boiled eggs keep if they don’t get cracked. The yolk hardens, and the egg whites evaporate.) Charlene Goodman learned egg decorating from her mother and carried on the tradition for her two sons, starting with a variety of characters and gravitating to their fanboy interests.
