It’s hard to believe that Easter is just around the corner but it’s almost that time! Spring is in the air and everything is beautiful and new!
When I think about what to put in my kids Easter baskets, I really like to get them things that have some lasting value. While candy is all fun and good in moderation, I really like to get them little toys that will last more than a day or games. That’s why Educational Insights is a great one stop place to shop for my kiddos this year.
We tried a couple of things from them that would be great Easter basket stuffers!
Hoppy Floppys Happy Hunt
My kids really like to play games, especially my five year old daughter Paige. I knew this Hoppy Floppys Happy Hunt would be perfect for her! It’s such a cute game and the Easter theme makes it a great gift.
You can have two to four players and so my daughter Paige played while she had a friend over. I really liked the simplicity of the directions and the game itself so little ones can even play without an adult once they understand the game.
They just spin the little wheel and have to get the color carrot that they land on out of the basket, without touching it, using the little blue bunny.
Once they have the bunny, they transfer it to their basket.
Paige really enjoys this game and asks me to play it over and over!
About the Game
Hoppy Floppy needs your help hunting for colorful carrots! Fill your basket first, and you win in this sweet, springtime, hide-and-seek game. Watch out: Spin “steal a carrot,” or “knock over your basket” and things get a little more hare-raising. Simple to play and understand for young ones, and easy to set up and clean up! This game develops fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and pre-handwriting skills. It also improves matching and strategic thinking skills while reinforcing color learning, encouraging social skills and turn-taking. This game is based on Educational Insights’ award-winning Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel game. It includes colorful carrot-shaped board, 1 Hoppy Floppy Squeezer, 16 carrots, 4 baskets, game spinner, and guide. For 2-4 players ages 3 and up. SRP: $14.99.
Dino Construction Company™ Helix the Stegosaurus Cement Mixer
My youngest is 14 months old and he is already all boy! He is naturally drawn to trucks and all things boy. There isn’t a whole lot of options for kids his age so I love when things like this interest him and are safe for him to play with.
He was immediately drawn to it, probably because of the fun blue and yellow colors as well as the awesome dinosaur on the truck! I mean isn’t that combining two of boys favorite things? It also moves so realistically and has a mouth that opens and closes and sections that easily move. It also comes with a little driver.
Jax knew just what to do with it and soon was pushing it around the room making vroom vroom sounds.
I really like the quality of the Dino Construction Company line as well as the creativity involved in playing with them. Whenever things are sets and my kids like them, it makes gift giving really easy!
Jax loves his new little Dino truck and I’m sure the little boy in your life will too. You also have a chance to win this below!
