Great Toys for Active Kids

Just like most of you, in the weeks right after the holidays, my house is chock full of toys that the kids just love.  Very few do I love, so I thought I’d share some great ones that my kids can’t stop playing with and that I really do think are great!

I know you are probably tapped-out with spending, just like I am, but if you see some great sales, now is the time to invest in a toy-closet or toy-bin for presents for all those birthdays throughout the year or even next Christmas or Hanukkah!

Full Disclosure here: I am including the links to Amazon, and if you purchase through the link, I would get a small percentage, however, these are MY recommendations, and I am not reimbursed in any way from these companies for my opinions. These are actually pretty inexpensive toys, but I would of course encourage you to shop for the best price! Let’s move on with the important stuff:

1.  Toysmith Neon Dart Ball Set

My kids have been playing with this all morning.  So has my husband.  So have I. It is really fun for the little ones, and a fun game to play right along-side them.  I will be getting this for anyone with little boys next Christmas (you know who you are!).

This is what it looks like in real life:

Games for kids

Easy to set up and store, this is perfect on many levels for where we are at this morning!

2.  Nerf N-Sports Nerfoop Set, Orange

Again, real life version:

Hoop for little-guys

This started as a rotation of the Dart Game and the Nerf, but we decided Nerf should go in their bedroom so they could “have more room”- for what?, I have no idea!

3.  Marky Sparky Blast Pad Advanced Missile Launch System

I posted about this one before, and we did not get it for the holidays, but got it last year for the boys’ birthdays.  It has endured and is still enduring lots of stomping, from our own kids as well as the neighbor-kids, who are loving this simple toy.  Seriously.  I would never have thought, but now I know, and I gave this one for Christmas to a little-guy this year! Truly a good outdoor- but not too much space needed- toy.

4. Sleeping Bags for Kids

Well, I have no exciting picture, but I now have 2 girls sleeping bags and 3 boys bags, that get a lot of zipping and unzipping, fort-making, friend’s sleepover sleeping, tv-snuggling, and sliding down our stairs action (!!)  Who knew all the uses for a sleeping bag? Now, you do.  You’re welcome.

Too late for the Holidays, but just in time for sales!

I hope you enjoyed these ideas- the TV is taking a backseat for once in our household, and I am loving it! Bring on the fun!
