Easter Egg Alternatives For Kids.

With Easter eggs so plentiful and cheap to buy and kids getting so many, you’d be forgiven for looking for an alternative to the chocolate egg gift. This year in particular, with everyone continuing to work together to reduce the spread of Covid-19, many of us will be sending Easter gifts by post rather than in person.

For very young children lots of chocolate isn’t always suitable and a toy gift may be preferable. With all these reasons in mind, here are some suggestions for alternative Easter gifts to the traditional chocolate egg.

A Soft Toy
For little ones at Easter, a cuddly soft toy is a great gift and local newsagents typically stock Easter bunnies and chicks at this time of year, from as little as €5.00. If you are looking for something extra special however, take a look at these two bunnies. The Melissa & Doug Jumbo Burrow Bunny is an adorably plush soft toy that you can’t help but cuddle. At 21 inches in height it understandably retails for €49.99. (Click HERE).

Equally adorable is “Flora” the interactive bunny by GUND. Retailing at €36.99, it’s now available to buy in Ireland. (Click HERE).

The Blue Bunny Hopper.
This simple toy has been enjoyed for generations and helps children to develop their coordination skills. The Blue Bunny Hopper retails at €6.99 and is available to buy online. (Click HERE).

Slime Eggs.
Kids love slime and these inexpensive toys come in options that appeal to boys and girls. For boys “Treasure X Alien Eggs” retail at €5.99 and combine goo with alien surprises (Click HERE).
For girls check out the “Compound Kings Mix and Mash Mystery Egg Surprise”. Retailing at €14.99 the set contains 30 eggs, 30 slimes and surprise charms (Click HERE).

Board Games.
Encourage some Easter family fun with “Lucky Ducks”. Children as young as three will love this game of memory match as they watch little ducks swim around the pond. “Lucky Ducks” costs €7.99. (Click HERE).

Hatchimal CollEGGtibles.
Another egg shaped toy that packs lots of surprises is the Hatchimal CollEGGtibles range with CollEGGtible toys from as little as €5.99. (Click HERE and HERE).
