Easter is right around the corner. Here are some fun Easter basket ideas thanks to our friends at Spin Master. We received free products in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own.
As our kids get older, the same old Easter basket items aren’t going to do. They’re past the stuffy phase and although they would like a basket full of sugary treats, I’m not cool with doing that. So, I’m always on the look out for new and fun things to put in their baskets. Toys are an easy solution, but there are some rules. First, I make sure they are good quality and not break the moment they use them. Next the toy will need to be something they’ll want to play with year round, not just at Easter. Lastly, they have to be inexpensive. I don’t want Easter turning into another Christmas.

Lollipets are always chasing one thing: their favorite sugary treat (included)! Hold out their lollipop, marshmallow or cake pop and watch as they scurry after it! Lollipets are bright, colorful and super cute. Kids will love collecting different kinds of pets and watching them scamper, sprint and hop.
Ages 4 and up
Games are a great thing to put in an Easter basket. They may cost a bit more, but they’re a gift that will keep on giving the whole year through. Hedbanz Jr. is a fun starter game for kids 4 and up. Kids will ask yes/no questions in order to figure out which animal is on their headband. No reading is required which means even the littlest of players can get in on the action.
Kinetic Sand: Beach Sand Kingdom
I always like to include a craft item into my kids’ Easter baskets. Kinetic Sand is fun for kids of all ages. This set lets kids build the sand castle of their dreams over and over again. With 3 lbs of sand, the possibilities are endless. The set also comes with the tools needed for building. Everything kids will need for creative and imaginative play are all in one box.

Twisty Petz are 2 toys in one. First they are a cute, sparkly pet friend made from enchanted, metallic or glittery gems. Then, with a few untwists, the pets turn into a beautiful bracelet.
