Giftwrap These Recommended Playthings From Play Pros at KidStuff Public Relations, Celebrating 25 Years Promoting Today’s Best Toys
Black Earth, WI (March 18, 2019) – As families gather on Easter Sunday and for the Passover Seder, they know delicious foods are part of the joyous rituals of the holidays. Instead of bringing Marshmallow Peeps or Kosher-For-Passover Chocolate Marshmallows, consider a non-edible hostess gift for the youngest in the house. Card games, tactile putty and slime or a logic game are all best choices for the mid-April holiday. And you needn’t worry about allergies or spoiling their appetites for the main course!
A round of cards is a wonderful way for multi-generations to interact. Grandparents can challenge the youngsters in a friendly competition while creating warm memories. Kids might show off their emerging math skills and improve their wait-to-take-a-turn social skills. Mature players exercise their memory-boosting skills. And smiles and belly laughs are guaranteed with these four suggested card games:
BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE
Ages 8+ • $14.99
A dynamic matching game with an explosive twist!
Ages 7+ • $9.99
A fast-paced discard game with a surprising finish!
Not Parent Approved
Ages 8+ • $24.99
A hilarious award-winning party game for kids and their families.
Ages 12+ • $19.99
Give kids permission to pronounce this carefully spelled adjective. This raucous card game combines strategy with special rules that change every time you play.
It wouldn’t be the holidays without a carton of eggs in the refrigerator. Turn some of those into works of art (after hard boiling them) with The Eggmazing Egg Decorator. Imagine clean fingers and no messy dyes or unpleasant smells! The original Eggmazing is packaged with 8 colorful markers to design the most artistic eggs for the annual backyard hunt.

This floppy-eared version uses the same spinning action to create colorful designs on hard-boiled eggs.
Gifts that emphasize touch are wonderful presents to give and to receive. Two trends are emerging this year – gooey and soft. Slime and putty have fascinated all of us since Silly Putty entered the market when Grandma was a little girl! Now Kangaroo Manufacturing offers armloads of choices with (ahem) interesting names like Unicorn Poop, Emoji Poop and Jurassic World Slimes. If super soft sounds better than slimey, consider the hottest collectibles this season with the adorable name – Moosh-Moosh. These cuddly pals with the sweet faces come in many sizes, prices and even wearables for the head and tootsies.
Super Cool Putty 3-Pack • $19.95
Save in bulk and spread the fun. Choose from Metallic Gold, Cosmic Hyper Bounce & Holographic.
Super Cool Glow Putty 3-Pack • $19.95

Best described as plush with a marshmallow-like texture, these pillow pals offer comfort, cuddles and company to tots, tweens and college coeds.
