Candy-Free Easter Basket Ideas

For the littlest one

The winner of the Dr. Toy Best Green Award for 2015, this adorable little doll is made with natural cotton fibers and has a natural rubber head, sustainably harvested from the Hevea tree. Meiya the Mouse is perfect for playtime, snuggle time, or just helping to ease teething pain.

The Best New Nightlights for Kids

For the one who’s afraid of the dark

Keep nighttime fears at bay with these two innovative nightlights that puts the old school plug-in to shame. From The Wunders Company comes a cordless wall light that turns on with just a gentle push and is accented by glow-in-the-dark stickers that can be positioned any way to choose. (Pictured above on the left.) Choose from butterflies to spaceships, whatever you decide, this neat little light is a comforting addition to any kids room.

Talk about double nighttime duty! This little owl nightlight from Zazu Kids is a 2-in-1 dream come true. The outer ring and the cute owl can be use together or independent of each other for a brighter or softer light feature. Both have the option of a timer shut-off or they can be left on all night. In addition, both have adjustable brightness levels. If that’s not enough to sell you on this innovative nightlight, there’s even a voice-activated sensor that automatically turns on just the owl at the sound of your child crying at night. Available in blue and pink.

Coolest Rain Boots for Kids

For the puddle jumper

Spring showers are no match for these cool kicks by Native Shoes. Feel free to let her pounce every puddle knowing her toes will stay warm and dry in these waterproof and oh-so-cute boots. In addition to that, they are also super lightweight, come in seven different colors, are odor-resistant, BPA and phthalate-free, are completely free of animal by-products and ship in recyclable materials. Happy hopping!
