Easter Basket Goodies!

My children love the countdown to Easter.  After we take down all of the St.  Patrick's Day decorations (March 17 is Little C's birthday after all), they begin egg hunting training.  Miss E is extremely serious about Easter egg hunts.  She likes to practice hiding eggs, and she likes to practice searching for them.  Our dear friends have an incredible hunt at their farm every year, so Miss E embraces every invitation to "minor" hunts in preparation for the big event.   She is also counting down to the delivery of Easter basket goodies.  I try to avoid the chocolate aisle at the area super store when it comes to creating baskets (but I love a certain peanut butter and chocolate egg!).  Kobold Toys has several great additions to your beloved's Easter basket... that will not cause cavities or sugar rushes at the egg hunt!

Kobold's top 5 picks for the Easter basket are:

1. Kobold loves the puzzle ball eggs from Ravensburger.  Perfectly crafted, curved puzzle pieces allow for an exact fit and are easily assembled together to form a solid, smooth ball - with no glue required!  Includes Base and Nylon String for Hanging.   Appropriate for ages 8+.  $7.50

2. Need a friend to snuggle up with this spring?  Kobold recommends the Two-Dees Chick from North American Bear Co.  Two-Dees Chick has quirky  two-dimensional charm and embroidered facial features.  Machine  washable.  Newborn +  Also available as an adorable pink rabbit.   $15.99

3.  Want to skip the real sugar?  Little fans of bakery play will  adore this set of 3 yummy-looking treats from Haba. This delicious pastry set  includes: a donut with chocolate glaze and white sprinkles, a bakery  fresh croissant, and a hazelnut twist in an beautiful bakery box. $13.50.  If you have a chef, you'll also love the Haba grill set and Haba pizza!

4.  Enjoy your love of the bunny all year with Ravensburger's Funny Bunny Game. Who will be the first player to reach the carrot at the top  of the hill? The cards will tell how many holes each bunny gets to hope,  if there's another bunny on a hole, your bunny gets to jump over him.  Everyone watch out! One of your bunnies may fall through a hole and  disappear! The player who makes it to the carrot first wins! This game  helps children learn counting skills and color recognition while having a  "hole" lot of fun!  No chocolate involved!  $20.99


5.  Kobold loves the KidO brand,  and the floating ducks are a favorite. Graceful mother duck and her  duckling are the perfect size for little fingers to stack together  during the bath. Out of the tub, they gently rock together. So cute!  Wonderful  bath toy for ages 1+.  $11.00

Visit the website for a peek at all of Kobold's favorites for your beloved's basket from bunnies to handbags.  Don't forget that orders above $40 (pre-tax and  after coupons) ship for free, and below $40 they ship for a very small  flat fee of $3.99 (Continental US orders only, standard ground service,  to the same shipping address).

I never put much candy in my kids' baskets either when they were young.
