The Super-Egg immediately became very popular, and became a major article of export especially to USA. The company, which made the Super-Egg in those days had to pick an international name, and which then was “The Super-Egg World Center”. The Super-Egg is still made in Denmark, and has experienced a renaissance as a toy, today it is also referred to as the “Anti-stress egg”.
