‘Game of Thrones’ Gender Reveals Now Exist…with Color-Changing Dragon Eggs
From the looks of it, Game of Thrones season eight may include two pregnancies—Daenerys’s (Emilia Clarke) and Cersei’s (Lena Headey). Well, some entrepreneurial Thronie just thought of a brilliant way to channel your inner Khaleesi (or Cersei, if that’s weirdly more your vibe) and announce the impending arrival of your “Prince(ss) That Was Promised.” Brace yourself, because winter Game of Thrones–themed gender reveals are coming.
Since utilizing pink or blue lasagnas and confetti canons to surprise friends and family with the sex of your baby are a “thing” now, it only makes sense that this trend would make its way to the Seven Kingdoms. GoT fans will be happy to know that gender reveal dragon eggs are available for purchase. Feast your eyes on this.
The handmade eggs, which are available on Amazon for $45, look pretty much like the real thing (right, Beyoncé?). They include 400 hand-painted metal scales that change color from black to blue or pink when exposed to body heat, direct light, warm water or a hair drier.
Sadly, no real dragons hatch from these gender reveal eggs, but with a real baby on its way, they’d probably be difficult to care for at the same time anyway. Pro tip: As Dany explained in the season eight premiere, dragons eat “whatever they want,” so it’s probably best to keep babies and dragons separate, should you ever run into one.
This editor has a particularly strong stance on the gratuitousness of gender reveals, but if you’re going to do it, this seems like a pretty cheeky way to get the job done.
Just do us a favor and don’t name your kid Cersei or Night King. Please and thank you.
