Refrigerator magnets come in many shapes and sizes, but you probably wouldn't suspect the Sparrow Egg Magnet of meeting such fixative criteria. The adorable bird figure sits gently upon a metal nest, guarding a collection of small white eggs with iron bases.

The little shells can be pulled from their protective holders when they become needed to stick papers and pictures to filing cabinets and fridges. Their soft coloring and smooth shapes make them subtle enough to be used in even the tidiest and most sophisticated of kitchens and offices, yet their iconic and playful formal qualities bring a whimsicality to the spaces they grace.

Sold through Matomeno, each Sparrow Egg Magnet comes in cute birdhouse-shaped packaging that reveals a red, yellow or green avian face through a small entrance hole in the front.
