Five ideas to keep your kids busy for hours this summer
With Memorial Day weekend marking the unofficial start of summer, the family can’t wait to get summer activities started. Today on ‘Live In The D’, Tati sat down with James Zahn, Editor of The Toy Insider, to give us a look at some of the toys your kids will have hours of fun with.
Summer temperatures are rolling in our state, one thing kids might want to do is cool off. There are toys that can help like the Icee ice cream maker. James says you and the family can make soft serve ice cream at your house. Each batch takes about 40 minutes to prepare with simple ingredients.
“Jurassic World Dominion” hits theaters on June 9, and Toy Monster Manufactures has released Jurassic World Captivz Dominion Edition toys that are both educational and fun. Children will have the chance to dig and discover different prehistoric creatures. Dinosaurs and eggs are collectibles. A cool aspect of these toys is the slime inside!
Next is a toy that will get kids outdoors and using a little imagination and picnic fun. The Leapfrog Shapes and Sharing Picnic Basket is a play basket with a shape sorter on top. The shapes are very colorful foods and the basket comes with a picnic blanket. James says the toy even teaches manners with audio cues.
The Koosh bullet returns with the new Koosh Flingshot. This toy is great for indoor and outdoor play, and could be a take-along option on trips this summer. James says Koosh balls were popular in the 90s and PlayMonster revamped the toy by adding the ball to a slingshot.
The last toy on James’ list is the Hape Scoot Around Balance Bike. James says this bike is a wooden balance bike that helps kids learn to balance. The Scoot Around Bike is out this year and parents will be thrilled because when it comes time to buy a bigger bike, they’ll be ready to rock and roll!
