White House Keepsake Eggs
The 2013 souvenir eggs come in four bold colors — purple, blue, yellow, pink — and include the stamped signatures of the President and First Lady. A commemorative teal “Bo” egg featuring the First Dog’s paw print is included only in the 2013 5-pack Collector’s Egg Set. You can see them all in this video.
Commemorative wooden eggs first became part of the tradition in 1981, when President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan hosted a hunt for keepsake eggs that bore the signatures of actors, actresses, famous politicians, and athletes.
