Building Sets that Promote Creativity
I always gravitate towards non-candy Easter gifts that my children can enjoy all throughout the year. Perfect for promoting creativity and developing fine motor skills, the Wonderhood Corner Shops Creative Building Set comes with 16 double-sided plastic building panels, 20 connectors, and 1 plastic staircase, providing your child with many creative possibilities. Building their very own Main Street, your child will love visiting Wonderhood Candy, Ice Cream & Sundaes, and the General Store with their very own 3D figure, Emma. Best of all, Wonderhood toys are all compatible. Combine Wonderhood Corner Shops with Wonderhood Pet Palace or Grand Hotel for endless Easter Basket fun!
A Practical Easter Gift for Babies
I always struggle knowing what to get my babies for holidays, especially Easter. I want their gifts to be both cute and functional. Luckily the Binxy Baby Shopping Cart Hammock meets both of these requirements. Binxy Baby Shopping Cart Hammocks provide a safe and comfortable way for you to transport your baby through the store while still leaving plenty of room for groceries. Whether you buckle your baby directly into the hammock or buckle their carseat into the hammock, the Binxy Baby meets or exceeds all applicable safety standards. Best of all, when you’re done using your Binxy Baby, simply roll it up and stick in in your diaper bag. Available in a variety of patterns such as Full Bloom, and Triangles, the Easter Bunny will knock it out of the park with the Binxy Baby.
Books for Easter Baskets
Growing up, my parents gifted me a book for every holiday. This Easter, I can’t wait to carry on the tradition with books from Lonely Planet Kids. Encouraging young readers to learn about and explore the world around them, Lonely Planet Kids has a variety of books teaching children about different cultures, historical events, nature, space, and more. Whether your young reader is interested in learning Japanese, challenging their minds with Brain Teasers, or traveling around the world, there is a book for every child. Lonely Planet Kids also features a variety of sticker, sketch, and travel journals. Looking for some fun titles to try? Check out Lonely Planet Kids Dinosaur Atlas and The Animal Book.
Add a cute and portable skill based game by Smart Games to their basket! Their Compacts and Pockets games will keep them busy and entertained, and last much longer than any candy might. Each of the different games will challenge them starting with the easiest puzzle level and let them gradually move to harder and harder puzzles and challenges when they’re ready to advance. This means the games stay interesting and grow with them. There are a variety of fun themed games like this new Jump’IN puzzle to help the rabbits quickly hide from the foxes. Or choose a Ghost Hunters, Temple Run, Penguins Pool Party, and many more games to choose from!
Add a fun, and exciting, way to encourage the kids to get outdoors with a set of Neon Street Rollers! These LED Light-up roller skates clip onto their everyday pair of shoes so there’s no storing bulk skates that are not in use. Plus, they adjust to grow with them and can be used starting at age 6 and up to 132 lbs! The LED light-up wheels are activated as they move and require no batteries. They come in 3 fun colors – pink, blue, and green. Find them at neonlyghts.com available for just $19.99.

Gather the kids for fun chalk games with their 5-in-1 Chalk Games Set. The multi-game pack comes with 5 different fun and exciting games. The Chalk paint and Jumbo Chalk Paint Makers are always fun to paint and color fun and creative pieces of art along the driveway.
