Not a saucepan

What do you call this?

The toddler was playing with this kitchen thing and calling it a saucepan. I wanted to correct him and tell him what it really is called, trouble is I couldn't think of a word. So I asked on Facebook. I got lots of responses and I realised why I couldn't think of a word- there are too many. Here's a  summary of the responses so far.
Pretty much everyone from the USA said "spatula" but other nationalities had lots of different words. (also pancake turner)

UK
 "fish slice", "spatula" 

Canada
 "flipper", "spatula"

Australia

spatula
egg flip
egg flipper
turner-overer
egg lifter
flippa thing
