When my children were little one of my favorite things to do was to put together their Easter baskets. I could have easily purchased a pre-made basket, but I had fun creating the baskets so I wanted to do it myself.
Since the grandparents and great-grandparents showered my kids with candy, I kept the candy to a minimum. Trust me, they had more candy than they could possibly eat. They never complained about the lack of candy in the baskets that the Easter bunny brought them.
Whenever I created their baskets I made to include all or most of the following items:
Coloring book & crayons
- Plush Toy
- Small Toys (bubbles, sidewalk chalk…)
Finding small toys is not always that easy. You want something that will fit into the basket, but it has to be fun to play with too.
I would often shop for small toys in the party favor section of the party store. Those toys are nice and all, but often they are not well made and break easily.
One year we gave the kids scooters for Easter. That was a BIG toy. LOL!
I’m a big fan of classic toys, especially the ones that I grew up with from Fisher Price and Playskool.
How about filling an Easter basket with classic toys like a Rubiks Cube, Etch-a-Sketch, Fisher Price Telephone or a Fisher Price Rock-a-Stack.
I know what you are thinking… those are not really small toys. An Etch-a-Sketch and Fisher Price Telephone would take up almost the entire basket and leave no room for anything else… or would they?
A company called World’s Smallest has recreated these classic toys, and more, but in miniature version.
If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen my post of some of the World’s Smallest toys next to my coffee mug.
How cute are they?
Not only are they adorable – they work too! You can really use the dials on the Etch-a-Sketch to create an image or design. The Rubiks Cube really does twist and turn. Even the Fisher Price Telephone’s go up and down when you movie it – just like the larger version.
I think the rings come off the Rock-a-Stack but I am afraid I might break it if I pull on them too hard.
As someone who is a HUGE fan of Fisher Price classic toys, I am totally in love with these miniature versions.
They even have a miniature version of the Fisher Price School Bus. I MUST find this one!
If you happen to find the World’s Smallest Fisher Price School Bus on your travels PLEASE let me know. I would love to add this to my collection.
World’s Smallest toys can be found in most Walmarts, Barnes and Nobel, Learning Express and other smaller shops.
Other World’s Smallest toys include Little Green Army Men, Duncan Yo Yo, Magic 8 Ball and Perplexus.
These sweet little toys would make the perfect addition to an Easter basket. You can leave the in their original packaging or pop them out and put them inside a plastic Easter egg for an even bigger surprise.
In addition to fun Easter basket fillers, World’s Smallest toys would make great stocking stuffers, party favors or gifts for the “big kid” in your life who enjoys classic toys.
I keep mine on my desk and I actually do play with them. They are a fun distraction from my work.
I collect classic Fisher Price toys and toys from my youth. Now that I know about World’s Smallest I am looking forward to adding more of their toys to my collection. I am determined to find them all.
World’s Smallest is made by the brand Super Impulse. They make other cool toys. If you would like to learn more visit SuperImpulse.com.
