If you are like me you have not purchased your Easter Baskets for your kids yet and you probably won’t do anything about it until Friday or Saturday. So where are the sales and what are you getting?
HEXBUG Micro Robotic Creatures would make a great addition to an Easter Basket!
We received one of these little creatures to use as a donation. We gave it to the Eastside Domestic Violence Shelter. I hope that they are able to find a child to give it to or use it in their upcoming auction. The HEXBUG creatures come in 5 different colors and 5 different creatures. We have also tried out the nano. The nano is 9.99 and the HEXBUG’s are 11.99.
Toy Story 1 & 2 Blu-ray Combo Packs, if you can wait until Easter. We couldn’t wait, we purchased them the week they were released. Best of all, they come with movie tickets to see Toy Story Three!
My daughter requested these (Hide ‘Em & Find ‘Em Eggs) and I had an offer to review them, but I just didn’t think I would have the time to play with them before Easter arrived and give them their own post. But according to friends that are reviewing them, they are worth mentioning in an Easter Basket Roundup.
Last spring, parents hunted for Techno Source’s Hide ‘Em & Find ‘Em Eggs™, which sold out by Easter. These popular electronic eggs that talk, giggle, and make silly noises are back and available at even more retailers nationwide.
Hide ‘Em & Find ‘Em Eggs put a super fun twist on the standard egg hunt game. Simply press the on/off button on the eggs and hide them in creative places to start the egg hunt fun. For up to 30 minutes, or until the eggs are found, they will shout phrases such as, “Yoo-hoo, I’m hiding!” and “I’m Over Here.” Once they are found, open them up to see the cute bunny or baby chick inside and hear them say, “Surprise, You Found Me!” Eggs come in six different colors: pink, blue, purple, yellow, green and orange. They have enough room inside to hide candy or small prizes and can be hidden indoor or outdoor for year-round fun. Batteries included.
Hide ‘Em & Find ‘Em Eggs will be available for purchase at Kmart, Rite Aid, ShopKo, Target, Toys “R” Us, Walgreens, Wal-mart, and Wegmans stores nationwide, as well as online at Amazon.com. Eggs are sold individually ($4.99) and as a 4-pack ($14.99). Appropriate for children ages 2 and up.
Zhu Zhu Pets are lots of fun as long as you don’t let your children put them on their head. My daughter got her hair stuck in one and we had to take it apart to get her hair out.
Last Year Zhu Zhu pets sent us the entire set so that we could through a Zhu Zhu Pets party. It was a lot of fun and everyone went home with a pet and one lucky mom went home with the entire playground.
