No matter the holiday, it’s inevitable that parents need a nudge in the right direction for those last minute gifts. Sure, Easter can be all about candy, plastic eggs, bunnies, and shards of shiny paper disguised as grass, or it can be all about these cool basket stuffers.
Take your pick. Whether your kid prefers Batman, Disney, or is a simple LEGO people fiend, these low-cost, small toys are easy to find, and most can ship within two days for free if you’re an Amazon Prime member. Even if you’re not a fan of mini figures, we bet your kid is, and they’re one of the almost three million who have watched this just2good video opening all 21 LEGO Minifigures Series.
For the teenagers who just never seem to like anything their parents pick out for them, an iTunes or Google Play Store gift card just might make them believe in the Easter Bunny again. Because there’s no way their mom or dad would ever get them something they’d actually like (eye roll).
NES Classic Edition Mini Controller
For gamers, this one might be the way to go. Sure, they probably already have their own controller, but it can be framed as a chance to play more with friends, siblings, or even mom and dad. The NES Classic is huge because parents already know many of the games offered and this mini controller can make that time together an unavoidable reality.
Lightning iPhone Cables
Another one for the kid who’s always making excuses for not answering their mom’s phone calls while out with friends, these Apple MFi Certified Lightning Cables make sure they never run out of battery. Put one in the car and one in their backpack, so there’s never another excuse for a dead phone.
Osmo Monster Add-On
Kids will need the Osmo game system for this one, but this add-on brings monsters into real life. Kids can harness their creative sides by drawing monsters and then using the connected technology to bring them to life. Mo the Monster was said to be “the kind of creature you’d see in a Pixar film,” by Wall Street Journal. If kids are into movies, drawing, design, and technology, grab the Starter Kit and let them get started.
