They are perfect for Easter since the creatures emerge from eggs.  Check out cool science kits like the Whirling Wave Reactor and Lab Gear or go right for a few eggs that kids can hatch and collect.

Chickapig quickly becomes a favorite of nearly every child (or family) that plays. With chicken–pig hybrids attempting to reach their goals while dodging opponents, hay bales, and an ever-menacing pooping cow, learning strategy is fun.  It can be played with 2-4 players so it's a great choice for playdates or family game night. The game is so much fun it even spawned a book and Chickapig stuffie.  


This SmartGames Smart Car is a great gift for Easter that just may be the most interesting thing in their basket.  This car is filled with colorful blocks that can be arranged in different ways using guides that increase in complexity and can grow with your child.

Putty is always a good gift to keep small hands busy and to help strengthen the muscles needed for writing. SuperCool Putty is even more fun. Turn down the lights and wait for it … putty that  glows! Or, choose Metallic Gold, Cosmic Hyper Bounce & Holographic options.


Boom Goes the Dynamite is a type of matching game with lots of twists that has been described as a game even people who don't like games will enjoy. This is a fast-paced game suggested for ages 8 and up where everyone has the chance to win.  

Go with a classic. Godiva's Limited Edition Bunny comes with a sweet treat and will be treasured for years to come. There is nothing cuter on Easter than to watch a child find their very own Easter Bunny – and with chocolate grown-ups can enjoy just as much.

Books are always good gifts, no matter what the occasion. National Geographic Books like the Little Kids First Big Book of ScienceExplorer Academy, and Kids Almanac 2020 will help keep kids engaged.
