With Easter around the corner, besides egg hunts, kids are always excited about what the “Bunny” drops off. This Easter and after attending the NY Toy Fair 2015, we have our picks for Easter basket gifts to go in your kid’s basket.
Girls & boys will LOVE these Award Winning child like dolls. They are based off the proportions of a 9 year old girl, and presents a healthy, educational, age appropriate life style. Lottie dolls are also ethnically diverse and come in many eye, hair and skin colors. At just over 7 inches tall, they are easy to hold and play with, Lottie Dolls and Finn also have bendable knees. We picked out Finn and English Country Garden Lottie with the Biscuit the Beagle Dog and Scooter Set accessory kits. All so cute! Great dolls for the girlie and adventurous types. I am also in love with the boy Finn, if you are like me you have a hard time finding a boy doll for your kids to play with.
The creator was inspired by spirited female characters from Green Gables, Little Women and Nancy Drew. With many accessories and different adventures, I am sure you can find one to fit your child. You can order them now online, at the under $20 price point they are a perfect present. As well as check them out on Facebook, twitter and instagram. Also on the Lottie website they have tons of activities for the kids to do and relate to, further learn about Lottie’s adventures and resources for parents.
My kids are big fans of the eKids toys. They are at great prices for the fun they provide, remember they are electronic based toys, either by themselves or link to another toy for use. Guardians of the Galaxy fans will love the Dancing Groot in their basket, he either dances to his own music or will dancing along to any music you have playing. The Sofia the First Creative Crayon is a stylus that works on touch screen devices and working with free app that is included for download. Perfect size, for the little hands.
The Frozen Magical MP3 Microphone priced at $12.99 is another cute pick for you budding rockstar. This also matches perfectly with the eKids Sing-Along Boombox, which we reviewed last month and is still a hit. Check out the full line of eKids toys today and find something your child would love, tons of characters to choose from.
I See Me
One gift you can never go wrong with is a book! I See Me makes personalized books, and has a many to choose from. Also its not just adding your child’s name, but also inside the pages. I did a sibling book for the kids and inside we were able to choose different family members to also be mentioned as we read. Jack and Char thought that was so cool. Bonus mom points!
They have birthday, holiday and new sibling books, also many adventure books, coloring books and accessories. I See Me is a great company and the personal attention the books are given is incredible. We are giving away one book today, enter below for your chance. In the mean time please check them out on Facebook and their website.
As a teacher and a parent, I am always looking for toys that work on skills for the kids but are also fun. The beauty of this game is everything is in one box, and the box doubles as play space. The kids work on fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and improves matching and thinking skills. The kids work on their colors, and encourages social skills and turn-taking (patience building). Differentiating includes using pincher grasp/fingers for picking up (younger children). Labeling the colors while learning, and sorting colors of carrots into baskets while taking turns instead of using spinner, for the younger crowd with adult supervision.
We are giving away one I See Me book and a Lottie Doll set! Good Luck!
