A favorite of ours has always been Tonka Chuck & Friends. Hasbro is offering a new lineup of all 7 characters in their Die Cast line. The Tonka Chuck & Friends ~ Chuck the DumpTruck ~ Die Cast Metal Truck is a great one to start off with since Chuck is the favorite character of most boys. It even comes with a DVD of an 11-minute episode. It’s a great value at only about $5.

Boys are entranced by Optimus Prime which makes the Transformers Rescue Bots Action Figure Optimus Prime
the perfect Easter Basket Toy! For ages 3-6, this Transformer converts from truck to robot in just 1 easy (non-frustrating) step! Choose from the whole Transformers Rescue Bots including Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Chase the Police-Bot, Heatwave the Fire-Bot, Blades the Copter-Bot, and Boulder the Construction-Bot. Retails for about $12.99.

The Fruit Ninja 5″ Plush With Sound: Strawberry is actually good for boys and girls ages 4 and up. Based on the ultra-addicting fruit slicing game app, your kids will love this mini-version. The Fruit Ninja can clip easily to bookbags and belt buckles for fruit fighting on-the-go! It is available with or without sound in Bomb, Strawberry, Watermelon, and Orange. Retails for about $5.99.

Easter Basket Toys for Big Boys

When kids are young, it is easy to buy cutie toys to add to their Easter Basket. When boys get to be around 8 and up, it gets more difficult. Give them something they are into and they will be all smiles!  It doesn’t have to cost a lot either. A great option for a big boys Easter Basket are Beyblades.
