Easter Gifts for Kids: Bunnies By The Bay – Giveaway

Samples sent for feature



My son was born in May (he is now 8 years old), but on his baby shower I had that was near Easter, I got a very soft blanket with a bunny head sewn on. This ended up being his best friend and went everywhere with him as an infant. It was like a blankie that was small enough for travels.  Bunnies By The Bay has such blankets as well as new spring arrivals that make great Easter gifts for kids.

This is Wittle Spring Bunny. He is so soft, small and lovable. I love just holding him and playing with his floppy ears.

Wittle Bunny has friends available: Wittle Kitty, Wittle Bear, Wittle Lambie and Wittle Duckie as well as Wittle Spring Bunny in pink, grey and lilac colors.


He is hand embroidered and has soft foot and paw pads. This is just the type of stuffed animals little hands want to touch and feel. There are no hard or plastic parts to bother baby. He is adorable as a friend to take along or as nursery decor so it makes a fantastic gift idea for baby or expecting parents.

easter gifts for kids

When I was expecting, I would go into my son’s nursery and always go for the stuffies and soft blankets in his room that was set up and waiting for him. I would hold the soft plush and think about the day I would meet my son and so these bunnies and blankets truly make special gifts before baby arrives. Wittle Bunny is just one of many new items for spring 2017 so visit Bunnies By The Bay and see all of the spring arrivals.


The Giveaway

1 lucky reader will win any full-priced item (up to $25) from their Spring 2017 New Arrivals page (HERE). Ends on 4/4. Open to the Continental US. Good luck-Enter below.

You may have included Easter candy from R.M. Palmer for years and now they have introduced a few new candies for the Easter and spring season. How adorable is that Hoppy’s Hideout ‘bunny down the bunny hole’ hollow chocolate with Double Crisp carrots?

My boys always love finding Double Crisp bunnies and these Snap & Share chocolate bunnies easily break apart for the candy you don’t want to eat in one sitting or that needs to be divided up to share and enjoy.

Easter candy 2

Flavor filled eggs are always a hit and R.M. Palmer Bunny Bites come in Peanut Butter, Caramel and Creamy chocolate. I have always loved the taste of Palmer peanut butter in their candies. Keep an eye put at retailers for these holiday candy choices from R.M. Palmer.

Spring and Summer Kids Clothing Outfits from Rockin’ Baby

Spring Summer kids clothing

With Easter coming I wanted to feature a clothing brand for baby and kids that not only offers quality clothing and accessories but also gives back. Spring Summer kids clothing from Rockin’ Baby will help mothers around the world with your purchase.

My son will spend this Easter in the Blue Brushed Check Shirt and Camel Cord Trousers. He is 8 and because they carry up to size 10 years he is able to wear the line of outfits they offer.

Ordering this outfit was a risk because my son is so picky with pants. I can never get him in jeans. He only wears shorts or athletic clothing. I had him look at how the waist is designed as that is the part that bothers his bony hops most. We tried it on and took some photos and as I was editing photos and became busy I noticed he was not quick to take the outfit off. Until I told him to get in the shower he was lounging in this outfit without complaining. That says a lot with him about the comfort he felt in these pants and the top.

Now partnering with ChildFund, for every item you purchase, Rockin’ Baby donates a sling, carrier, or item of clothing to a needy child somewhere in the world. Your purchase makes a difference and that is clothing your child will fell and look great in. Visit Rockin’ Baby for more information and styles.

Boys Easter

My son is heading out of size 8 and into a 10 and this outfit is a size 10 and the fit is perfect. He can bend, sit and run in these pants comfortably.

Goodie Gusher Reusable Pinata

Sample sent for feature


Every year we have allowed friend parties with our boys. The older two are beyond birthday parties, but the 8 year old starts planning his next party the day after the last one. At every home party a pinata is always a must. I sort of cringe when I add up the price of supplies and then go buy a $20 pinata we will throw away when it is hit to shreds. One year I turned to my son and asked if I can just allow him to pick out a $20 gift to keep as opposed to the $20 pinata we will just hit and break. He didn’t go for it-a pinata must happen. Finally, the most brilliant party pinata exists and I will never buy a throw away one again. The Goodie Gusher is reusable party after party and runs about $26.


We have the Space Monster Goodie Gusher and on a hot day with play dates over I hung it from the soccer goal-so the little kids could reach. Filling it was easy. I just turn it upside down and fill, replace the bottom cap and turn over. I insert the keys in the slot and find a place to hang. A new key slot will release the candy each play. (hint: it is not actually a certain key, but in the actual center piece that drops at any time).


The first game lasted all the way until the second to the last key. The second time around lasted about 6 or 7 keys in. The third time we finally set up video below so you can see this fun action. It is so fun to tell them they can do pinata over and over again.I filled it with very little candy. If you fill it all the way it holds a lot more than what you see drop in my video.

You can get the Goodie Gusher in many designs from Nickelodeon themes like TMNT and fun monsters and emojis. Goodie Gusher also has holiday themed pinatas for Halloween, Christmas and Easter.


I found Goodie Gusher pinatas on Amazon and you can also get at some retailers as well.
