I wanted to show you a couple of our new Easter basket fillers, but I have to tell you the story that goes along with them. Why I always have a story to go along with things, I don't know. But it makes things interesting, don't you think?!
These dinosaur eggs from Russ have been a big hit already. Polka dot eggs in different colors that you unzip to find a baby dinosaur inside. So cute. Press the dino's belly and he roars! Even cuter. A mom was in the other day with her little girl, who just giggled and giggled over these little dinosaurs. She had the most precious giggle that would just bubble over every time she pressed a dino's belly and made it roar.
I'm thinking, if she thinks those are funny, wait until she sees these . . . .
These soft little bunnies are wind-up toys, and they hop all over when they're wound up. Again, most kids get a kick out of these and think they are just too fun. Enter precious giggle little girl, who was scared to death by the hopping bunnies! She jumped back with her hands over her mouth and her eyes huge, then said "no, no, no!"
I felt terrible, of course, and told her (and mommy) how sorry I was that it scared her. All was right once we pressed a few more dino bellies - whew!
You can see all of the funny - and not-so-much - basket fillers in our Easter section here.
