Color Your Own Water Bottle
Both my kids have these water bottles and absolutely love them, the pride of getting to decorate it in your own way has them using them all the time, and drinking more water. Bonus win!

ALEX Spa Hair Chalk Salon
This is a nice work around to your kids wanting to dye their hair ( and also make your hair start to go grey at the same time. Just me? Oops!). We got these and both of our kids love to play with them. They are great for spirit days at school or just having fun.
Binoculars Night Scope 4×30 Telescope with Pop-up Spotlight and Night-beam Vision

A version of this toy has been around forever and that’s because changing your voice is awesome. Especially when you are a little kid. Just thinking of this reminds me when I had a voice modulator, they are just fun to play with.

Check them out here.

My kids just came home with this on their lists. I’ve watched the videos and I have to admit, EVEN I WANT THIS! It just looks so cool to play with. It’s just over $10 but I have to include it for the cool factor alone. You have to see this in action to believe it.
In case you hid under a rock this past year, this is the “it” gift. I have to say for something so simple, it’s incredibly amusing. I’ve found that every child who has one, at least wants one other or more. It’s crazy, and fun! Here’s some of the more recent fidget spinners.

I’m so jealous of kids gifts now! They are a thousand times cooler than when I was a kid.
No kidding, it seems like every couple of years the toys of today totally blow away the toys of a few years ago.
