Summer Fun Gift Guide 2019

Who else is excited for a summer of fun.  Along with trips in town and vacation we have a lot of time to fill.  We have found some of the best summer fun items you are going to love.  Not only are they perfect to keep your kids busy, but a lot of them will be perfect to keep you busy as well


As most of you know there is nothing my son loves more then his pets.  When he saw that he could actually raise butterfly’s he was so ecstatic.   I don’t think I had ever seen him so excited.  When the Uncle Milton Wildlife Habitats showed up, he was so ready to get started.


Live Habitat

Do you have a bubble lover then Gazillion Bubbles from Funrise toys is a must.  They have a wide range of bubble making toys your kids are going to love.  My son can’t get enough of bubbles and had a blast.  Are you one of the parents that once you start blowing bubbles they never let you stop?  Then make sure to check out Gazillion Bubbles they even have machines that will blow them for you so you can finally sit back relax and just watch the fun for a few minutes.


Yaaaa ZURU has made our parties so much easier.  Balloons are my sons #1 recommend for any party.  He does not consider it a party until we got balloons.  Before ZURU It meant we spent a ton of money to get them already done, or everyone that came over got put to work on blowing them up, tying, and adding the extras.  It was always a process. Now Bunch O Balloons Party Pump Starter Pack has made it easy.


Hatchimals lovers you are going to be so excited.  They have some new friends out and they are adorable.  The Hatchimals Pixies are too cute for words and come with accessories.   There are 8 different ones you can collect.  They each come with their very own pixie bed + 3 accessories.


Are your kids obsessed with cars.  Then these tracks and little cars are going to keep them busy for hours.  They have a ton of Micro Wheels to collect.  Each little pack has a surprise car.  My son loves just pulling the cars back and watching them go.  I love that the cars go right into their little garage at the end of the track its like they put themselves away.  The garages also connect to make it easy to store them and easy to find again later to play with. Check out the video below for more Micro Wheels fun.

Best Furry Friends are at the top of my list.  I want to collect them all.  as you all know me and little guy are both animal obsessed.  These are not only very cute there are so many to collect and play with.  They have a whole line your little is going to love.  Best Furry Friends not only have the very cute friends they have a animated series I love on youtube.

Think of a fun game of Good vs. Evil your job is to get the main werewolf out while avoiding the other werewolves.  So when you get it read the directions.  At first I though this would be a little to complicated for my little guy.  Yet he was actually the one who remembered the rules and remembered everything.  We went to him for tips lol.  This was a great family game for the whole family. We even had the Glow bracelets on the two puppies running around.  Of course they had no idea what was going on so they made perfect wolfs lol See full review here


My son loved anything that is interactive.  He loved to build and play and magnets are one of his favorites.  I was so excited to show him the MagStix by BizyBeez when they came.  They were out of the box in no time and he played with them for hours.  They really are a new concept on an old favorite.  There are so many possibilities that you can do with these great pieces.

Now living in Arizona with the hot summers we can bring this home for our little guy. The Splash2o: World’s First Home, Portable Splash Pad is perfect for the summer.  For the price of just your family getting into a park you can now have this at your home all year round.

Did you all know X-Shot made water guns?  I had no idea till this showed up and little guy was so excited to play.  This baby is also a fast fill so we keep a bucket of water near us and we are off to play.  This was awesome we were filled in no time and off to play again. ZURU has outdone them selves with the X Shot water gun.  It was very easy to use and my son could even spray it.  Normally we have to buy he cheep ones that don’t last because they are easy to pull the trigger.  Now we have a great one that takes no time to fill and keeps the fun going all day long.

MAGFORMERS are a number one in our house.   They are a great learning toy for my son that he loves.  He can build all day long.  This MAGFORMERS 50 piece set is not only fun to play with, but gives us a great chance to talk to him about the police and how they will always be there to help him. his is a great STEM toy your kids are going to love this summer.  Keep them building and learning all summer long.


What says summer better then a Coconut Pool Float?  Even better they have Jurassic World.  This is another movie that me and little guy watch weekly. He loves Blue and the Indoraptor.  These are not only our favorite charters they are cute and a great ride on for the pool.  Coconut Float makes a wide range of pool floats you are going to love.  they are very well priced and fantastic quality.  I have had some of mine for a long time and they are still in perfect condition.  They are a must have this summer.
