Easter is fast approaching, the chocolate Easter eggs have been out in the shops for what feels like a year already. Every trip to the supermarket turns into a battle with the youngsters who demand an egg but not a kinder egg, oh no! One of those £10 up ones! Not on my Nelly little one.
There are so many Easter eggs to choose from this year and they have noticeable gotten bigger too. This year we’ve decided to scrap buying Shaniah an Easter egg as our family members also gift her some and it all ends up being way too much chocolate for a 3-year-old to handle, although I don’t complain when there’s a never-ending supply of chocolate when my midnight munchies come calling. This year we’ve decided that we will get her something that she can enjoy like a toy or a game or maybe even an activity of some sort.
I’ve searched the big wide web for some awesome Easter gifts that are affordable and bound to be something that your youngster will love – even more than the endless chocolate stash.

Chicco have recently launched their “Fit’N’Fun” range which features a wide variety of games which promotes the fun of development – it features toys to suit everyone. Toys that encourage children’s physical, intellectual and cognitive skills all whilst providing hours of entertainment.
Their “Fit’N’Fun” range features, Mr Ring, a colourful hedgehog which will test your little ones co-ordination, precision and patience. Jump’N’Fit, which is a modern take on the timeless classic hopscotch. Jump’N’Fit enhances your youngsters motor ability. Jungle Rugby, a 3-in-1 toy which encourages motor and socializing skills through three different play modes. Goal league, which works to improve their accuracy and co-ordination skills. Shaniah has had Goal league for a year now and she still loves it and interacts with it like the first day she got it. The lights and sounds cheer her on when she’s doing well and encourage her to keep trying if she goes wrong. Chicco’s “Fit’N’Fun” range is pretty impressive.

SnoBall Battle Pack £4.99
Snow! Every child loves snow right? I agree though we have had a lot of snow lately that the novelty has started to wear off on me although for Shaniah the fun is only just beginning! She has grown fascinated with the snow and once it melted it was fair to say that she got a little disheartened and begged us to bring the snow back. Impossible! Or not. You see the awesome people at Zimpli Kids, the creators behind the awesome Gelli Baff have created awesome Snowball battle packs which I think will be perfect for the competitive side to our family.
Shaniah was loving throwing snowballs at the wall during the latest bouts of snow so this is bound to bring big smiles to her face.

Pretty awesome huh?
