Hello everybody! In case you didn’t notice, Easter is this Sunday! So with that I would like to remind you about Pat the Bunny! If you missed him last week at Solon, Shaker, and Pepper Pike, don’t worry you have a second chance! Pat will be at our Mentor location from 10-11am this Saturday and at our Avon location from 2-3pm! There will be coloring pages available for kids to color and Pat will be handing out plastic eggs that have a coupon inside to be used on the day of his visit!
And since we’re on the subject I thought I’d mention a few little toys that might be cute in the Easter Baskets (candy is so over-rated), or good for giving children when you see them for Passover. So without further adieu, and in no particular order:
1) Lego Minifigures – $2.99 each.
These Minifigures come in individual, small bags which make them a perfect little gift, especially for boys. You only get one Lego figure in the bag, and you never know which one you are going to get, but that’s the fun of it! And don’t worry, all of the styles are very cool! Kids love to put these little figures together, collect, and trade them.
2) Peaceable Kingdom Scratch and Sniff Stickers – $1.99 each
These Scratch and Sniff stickers have 80 stickers in each box! Each box is an individual smell (grape, strawberry, bubblegum, chocolate, and pizza) that smells so good, you’ll wish you could eat them!
3) Sqwishland Tube Six Piece Assortment – $4.99
Sqwishland is the next new thing! Each capsule contains one little, soft, squishy animal and one code. Kids love to collect and trade their Sqwishland animals and they use the codes to go to sqwishland.com to play games and earn points. And gift givers, if you have more than one child to give to, you
could always buy one tube and split up the capsules between the children!
4) Yomega Yo-Yo’s: Fireball and Brain – $12.99 each
Yo-yos are not only a “classic toy” but they are also really popular right now! These two yo-yos by Yomega are a lot of tun. The Fireball has has a special axle in it that allows for long spins, whereas the Brain yo-yo has automatic returns!
5) Bead Bazaar Bead Tube – $2.99 each
With these bead tubes children can be creative and make their own bracelet or necklace. The beads are big enough for young children to string, and since there aren’t a ton of beads in the tube parents don’t have to worry about the beads spilling all over the place. With themes like animals, pirates, and more, both girls and boys can enjoy stringing up some fun!
6) FS-USA Marbles- $2.99 per bag
These marbles are fun, colorful, and beautifully made! Teach your kids how to play the classic game of marbles, or have them create their own! We have over 20 different styles of marbles, so you are bound to find one that strikes you!
Okay, well that should give you a few little ideas! If you need more suggestions you could always leave me a comment below, or ask any Playmatters worker and they will be happy to help you! Happy holidays everyone!
