The new spring lineup from Basic Fun! puts the fun back into Easter baskets! With Easter just around the corner, I have included some items that are perfect for basket fillers, and just the right size and shape to hide for a morning treasure hunt.


MASH’EM HATCH’EM CHICKS

This collectible line is definitely something to chirp about! These delightfully cute creatures are housed in surprise egg shaped capsules. The eggs are then popped, and bopped to hatch an inflated Chick that will shrink back down to collectible size after 24 hours. Series one is home to six adorable feathery friends. This was such an exciting toy for my boys to open. It was so cool to watch the creature inflate in seconds.

Cost: $4.99

CAKEPOP CUTIES

THANK YOU


I love these toys because they are not only adorable but great toys for sensory integration and coping skills development. The Mash’Ems are well received by my kids because they love playing with characters that they know and love. When my youngest son is having a hard day I encourage him to play with MashMallows because they are similar to squeezing a stress ball that smells sweet. Thank you Basic Fun! for sending The Playful Parent these toys to review and share with families. The Playful Parent is not paid to endorse companies.
