12 Non-Candy Easter Basket Ideas

AMAZON.COM

We all love a nice chocolate bunny, but after that, we’re looking for Easter basket fillers that are not candy and can keep the kids occupied through dinner. And beyond.

We’ve made a great list of inspiring ideas your kids will love, no high fructose corn syrup included.

1. Yellies Bunnies

AMAZON.COM

These Yellies! aren’t your typical stuffed animal. They’re interactive and respond to your voice. They basically chase you, and your kids will be laughing for hours.

2. Rescue Runts

WALMART.COM

These sweet little animals come to you in a tattered state and are a great way to teach your kids how to care for pets. They’re so cute, you’re going to want to collect them all.

3. A Is For All Things You Are

AMAZON.COM

A book is always a good idea, and we love this one as it celebrates what makes all of us unique.

4. High Five

AMAZON.COM

This book is another great candy-free choice. It’s an interactive book written by Adam Rubin who you may know as the Dragons Love Tacos author.

5. Water Blaster

WALMART.COM

Now that the weather is getting a little warmer, water blasters are a great way to get the kids outside and burning off some energy, so buy one for the kids and all of their cousins and let them go bonkers. This is the perfect one to slip in your kid’s basket.

6. Microwheels

WALMART.COM

If you have a race car lover in your house, they will love this racing loop which caters to their love of cars and tiny things.

7. Mermal Hatchimals

AMAZON.COM

Hatchimals are always a hit — and how fun to hide a few of them along with the Easter eggs this year?!

8. Spring Basket Hatchimals

WALMART.COM

Why not purchase this cute Hatchimals Spring basket instead of filling a basket will lots of different things and make it easy on yourself?

9. Baby Shark Puzzle

AMAZON.COM

This big, colorful puzzle is the perfect thing to keep your littles busy since we already know he/she loves some Pink Fong and “baby shark.” It plays the “Baby Shark Song” (you’ve got it stuck in your head now, don’t you?), has sturdy wooden pieces, and will occupy them while you’re glazing your ham.

10. WowWee Mad Lab Minis

AMAZON.COM

Untamed Mad Lab Minis are super fun — they’re filled with a mystery substance and have a surprise toy inside. If your kid is a YouTube, slime, or surprise egg fan (or all of the above), they’ll definitely be stoked to find this in their basket.

11. Baby Elephant Fingerlings

AMAZON.COM

These tiny toys have been trending for a while. We love this elephant and so will your kids. It will look totally adorable clinging to the edge of their Easter basket. There’s a fox now too!

12. Dragon FingerlingsĀ 

AMAZON.COM

This dragon fingerling is the perfect toy for the dragon-lover in your family. It reacts to sounds and opens its mouth when it gets mad. I kind of want one for myself.

There you have it: fresh ideas that aren’t candy, and will make your kids happy. It’s a win-win for all.
