Counts Juggles aloud!
Smart Ball is no ordinary soccer ball. (Though you can use it as a regular ball by removing the sensor and screwing the bung to the ball!) Smart Ball lights up with every touch, and its built-in speaker counts your juggle score out loud up to 100. Challenge your friends to a trick-off or try to beat your high score in a solo round. Smart, sporty fun!
The toy that comes back
Enjoy hours of outdoor adventure with this ultra-fun boomerang. It features an advanced tri-blade design and has a flight range of up to 60 feet. The boomerang’s wings whistle as it soars through the open skies. And best of all, it’s easy to throw and catch — and you’ll need to do both, as this boomerang comes back every time!
Perfect for nighttime adventures
These light-up goggles will help spy kids find their way in the dark, whether they’re on a top-secret mission or just sneaking to the refrigerator for a midnight snack. The tinted green lenses enhance night vision, and the directional beams of LED lights leave both hands free to explore. The adjustable velcro straps mean that these glasses will fit heads of all sizes — a good thing, as these glasses are so cool, Mom and Dad might want to try them too!
This year’s hottest bike accessory
The Mini Hornit is durable, waterproof, and fully loaded with 25 fun and outrageous sound effects. Want to pretend you’re riding a motorbike, a police car, or a fire engine? No problem! Want to make people think there’s a horse or a lion coming up behind them? Mini Hornit can do that too! The horn attaches easily to the handlebars of any bike or scooter, and it also features white and green lights with flashing or constant settings. Roar roar, coming through!
Create brilliant masterpieces!
Budding artists will enjoy hours of relaxing fun with this light-up drawing board. The pink frame with a built-in stand features a see-through screen so you can trace your favorite pictures or create original works of art. Switch the frame on and watch the LEDs illuminate in 36 different ways and colors, giving your artwork a fantastic neon glow effect. Wipe clean with a dry cloth to start again. Soothing and imaginative entertainment awaits!
Everyone’s talking about Pindaloo
Pindaloo is the ultimate game of skill. The basic concept is simple enough — just loop the ball from one side of the tube to the other. The reality is much more challenging! Keep practicing, and soon you’ll be doing all kinds of wild tricks. Can be played indoors or outdoors, and even in the pool! A great way to unwind after a long homework session. Get in the loop!
A cool new twist on a classic reading light
This bendy light has flexible, grippy coated legs that can grab, hook, hang or wrap around nearly any horizontal surface. The 360-degree head rotation makes it easy to shine light exactly where you need it. And conveniently, this little guy comes with batteries fitted, so you can start using the light right away. A perfect gift for kids who like staying up past their bedtime to read their favorite books!
Draw, write, and make magic
Kids of all ages will love this amazing set of 25 magic marker pens. Write in a journal, scrawl notes to friends, or create artistic masterpieces with markers that can change colors, make 3D letters, write in invisible ink, and more! Built with durable, shock-proof tips, these markers will make a wonderful and long-lasting addition to any child’s art supply collection.
The silent guessing game
Charades is a classic party game for a reason — it’s tons of fun! This version is simplified for kids and comes jam-packed with 450 charades to choose from. Act out all sorts of things, from a hula hoop and a cell phone to hanging a picture. Just pick a card, flip a timer, and get this party started!
Animals scratch ‘n’ sniff
