Easter Basket Toy Ideas from VTech #Giveaway

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 Posted by Dina N

Easter is just a few days away, and I have almost everything I need to surprise my kids. The eggs, the good chocolate, and the baskets are the easy part. What to put in the baskets is a little more challenging. I want something that's fun and educational, has no sugar - we get enough of that from the chocolate! - and can hold their attention longer than a day or two. My daughter's new obsession is everything Frozen, so I have been hiding a couple of Frozen coloring books and the soundtrack CD for her basket.

Speaking of fun and educational, VTech has some great suggestions for those Easter baskets. Last year, we tested the VTech InnoTab 3S Learning Tablet. I am happy to report that more than six months later, my kids still enjoy playing and learning with it. A couple of new cartridges will be a welcome addition to their Easter baskets. The InnoTab® Disney Planes software cartridge is intended for children aged 4-7 years. It includes eight interactive games that let them practice counting, addition, reading, map skills, memory, logic and more. Children can also read the Planes e-book, look through the story dictionary and get creative with a fun photo activity. Summer break is mere weeks away, and some learn-by-play practice is just what we need to keep those early skills sharp.

My kids are a little old for the InnoTab Bubble Guppies software cartridge (Ages 3-6 years; MSRP: $24.99) but younger children will enjoy the "Bubble Puppy" e-book with story dictionary and several games. The software teaches creativity, color matching, counting, reading, life science, vocabulary and more.

If your kiddos are into cars and dinosaurs, check out the Go! Go! Smart Wheels® Vehicles (Ages 1-5 years; MSRP: $7.99) and the Switch & Go Dinos® Turbo Assortment (Ages 3-8 years; MSRP: $9.99). These toys are well made and sturdy enough to survive hours of play. I am giving them to my kids' younger cousins who will have a blast with them. Personally, I prefer toys that have volume control and ideally a "mute" option but I've never met a five year old boy who does not love something with a light-up button that makes noise!

The Go Dinos® Turbo Assortment includes six new dinos, including Dart the Triceratops, Zipp the T-Rex, Spur the Stegosaurus, Fray the Ankylosaurus, Cruz the Spinosaurus and Spinner the Stygimoloch. Kids can rev up the action with flywheels that let the dinos race and roar across the floor. Each dino also emits realistic vehicle and dinosaur sounds and phrases that teach fun facts.
