Grow your own fairy garden, or play a silly game with a goofy orangutan. Move your body to create unique dance moves, feel the wind in your face as you ride, and dive deep to capture a squid. Sounds more like the imagination of a child than descriptions of toys and games, doesn’t it? That’s why I love PlayMonster so much – there’s little difference between the two! Kids can unleash their creativity and silly imagination with PlayMonster products, because those toys and games encourage it. PlayMonster just released a bunch of crazy fun new stuff, perfect for springtime fun with the kiddos! Be sure to check out ALL of their latest releases, then see my top 5 favorites:
PlayMonster’s Garden Fairies extend the playful nature of the My Fairy Garden® line of playsets. Three different fairies and scents are available, Rosie, Jasmine and Sweet Pea. Each set includes a fairy, scented flower, butterfly and hair clip. The butterfly can be a toy, or can be attached to the hair clip and worn as a pretty accessory! Play with Garden Fairies on its own, or add it to My Fairy Garden play sets! These are made for kids 4 and up and retail for $7.99.
A fun, suspenseful game, Orangutwang™ will have kids jumping and laughing for more! To play the game, simply set the Toucan in position, gently place the orangutan on the string, and then roll the die to find out which play piece you get to hang on the orangutan. Be careful how you hang it…at some point it will be too much for the orangutan and he’ll leap and swing and go twaaaannng!
The player who makes the orangutan go flying and throw his fruit and friends technically loses the game, but do they really lose? It’s fun and hilarious to see him go twang, so really all the players are winners! This is made for ages 4+, and 2-4 players. Score it at Amazon and Target. Plus, starting April 14th, get it at Walmart! It retails for $24.99 in-store.
Dance like you’ve never danced before with Mad Moves™, PlayMonster’s newest active play game that will have all ages laughing and having fun together! Don’t worry, you do not have to be a dancer to play! You’ll have a great time pretending to tap-dance like a fish or twist like a surfer and more!
In Mad Moves, roll the dice to see HOW you’ll be dancing (like a certain person, animal or action) and spin the spinner to see WHAT you’ll be dancing (ballet, limbo, tap, twist or dance battle). Combine the two and get groovin’, while everyone else tries to guess what you’re imitating
The spinner plays real music—five different styles!—so you’ve got some tunes to guide your dance moves! Mad Moves is a fun, active game for three or more players, ages 8+. Batteries required. Find it at Walmart.
Be sure to check out the video on the product page – an adorable group of kids plays the game and it’s pretty fun to watch!
Free Wheelin’ – Free Wheelin’™ Rider Sport is a new European-designed sturdy, convertible push bike/balance bike that easily adjusts to grow with children.
Why Free Wheelin? Start off with three wheels, and easily switch to two when your child is ready! The height adjustment is great for when little ones have a growth spurt!
Built with safety and comfort in mind, Free Wheelin’ features a durable body, sturdy wheels with quiet and gripping tires, and comfortable and easy-to-turn handlebars. Incredibly light in weight, the balance bike also holds up to 80 lbs and is available in six bright colors.
Riding indoors or out, kids aged 1 and over will have a blast! Grab these at Amazon, for a retail price of $49.99.
Aqua Diver™ – Ready to race? Aqua Diver is a bright, colorful squid that kids toss in the pool and then race to dive after and catch, all while being timed! The coolest feature of Aqua Diver is its water-activated timer…when it hits the water, the timer automatically starts! Kids press the button to stop the timer when they retrieve the squid from the depths of their pool!
Friends and family can take turns diving and catching Aqua Diver to see who can do it the fastest, or one swimmer can play over and over again to try to beat their best time! These are for kids aged 5 and over for a retail price of $14. Find them at specialty stores and Amazon!
