BROOKLYN - An old-fashioned egg hunt with a modern twist is allowing New Yorkers to use their phones as a virtual collection basket.

The Faberge Big Egg Hunt is an interactive contest, with over 200 egg sculptures hidden around the city, including Brooklyn. The eggs are over two feet tall and were created by famous artists and designers.

In order to play, you have to download the free app, which allows you to check in each time you find an egg. An egg's location will remain a secret until 10 people use the app to check in at that egg.

The eggs will all be auctioned off for charity when the contest ends on April 17. News 12 Brooklyn spotted a huge chocolate egg at Jacque Torres, and a few under the Brooklyn Bridge at Jane's Carousel.

The winner will receive a jewel encrusted Faberge pendant.
