Kids Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Mini Hornit yellow

While your kids are busy riding on their new bike, scooter, or riding machine this year – keep them equipped with safety in a fun way with a Mini Hornit! The flexible wings make it easy to attach to whatever your riding. The Mini Hornit is a cool bicycle horn and light in one that can play 25 different sounds. The 12 lumen light adds an element of safety to help your children see and be seen! Safety is most important, so they’ve even thought to make a remote trigger that can be attached right by the handlebars so your child doesn’t have to remove their grip to honk their horn! Look for the Mini Hornit at Walmart as well as toy and bicycle stores across the country.

 

toobs

My kids can spend hours and hours playing with figurines. I love to hear their imaginations come to life as they travel through time and settings to act out elaborate scenes with their toys. I have looked near and far and Safari LTD is the best of the best! Their figurines are all hand painted and perfect! They have everything from buildings to dragons, but our favorites are their Toobs. Each Toob comes with a variety of mini figurines based on a theme. Whether your child is into dinosaurs or babies, there is something for you from Safari LTD and I promise it will be perfect for filling for their stockings!

 

Sakar Headphones If you’re giving your child a tablet this year, consider a new pair of headphones to go along with it. Sakar International’s new line of kids-safe headphones allows kids to safely listen to and enjoy music. The kids-safe headphone series features a built-in volume limiter, protecting children’s hearing by automatically limiting audio volume to approximately 80% of the original maximum volume. Kids-safe headphones are compatible with all portable devices that feature a 3.5mm stereo jack output, including iPod, iPhone, iPad, Android smartphones and tablets, and portable gaming devices such as the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo DS series. These headphones are also compatible with laptops, PCs, CD players, and home audio systems. Available in their favorite characters like Hello Kitty, Batman and Spiderman! Available at Amazon.

About Aimee

My name is Aimee and I was lucky enough to meet my perfect match at age 15. We were married 6 years later and are parents to the cutest kiddos around. Our oldest son is a cautious, but outgoing, smarty pants with a little sister who has no fear and loves to push all his buttons. They are 19 months apart. Before becoming a stay at home mom I was a second grade teacher, and I loved every minute of it. Now I spend most of my day on the floor building trains, tucking in baby dolls, reading stories, and laughing my guts out with my own kids. I love to spend time with my family, travel, read, watch movies, be outdoors, and eat!
