Whether you celebrate Easter as the coming of spring or a religious holiday, it’s a joyful time to get together with family. Easter baskets and egg hunts are often the talk among kids and their friends thanks to all the exciting goodies inside. If you want to limit your kiddo’s holiday candy consumption, you can skip the jellybeans and chocolate bunnies altogether and opt for small toys, springtime gear, and cute little books instead.

Reviewed & Approved

GUND's Flora the Animated Bunny comes to life with the press of a button on either foot for a fun game or music. For a budget-friendly option for babies, we recommend the Infantino Lil Nibble Carrot Teether.

Before deciding what goes into your kiddo’s Easter basket, consider the type of gift you’d like to get, such as an Easter-themed gift or a gift that can be used in all seasons. Also, double check the age recommendation and size of the gift to ensure it is safe and can fit in the basket. We carefully considered age recommendations, size, design, ease of use, and value when reviewing products.

How We Selected the Best Easter Gifts for Kids

We chose the best Easter gifts for kids by researching reviews from customers and competitors, and we studied the features of dozens of products on the market. We considered price, design, features, ease of cleaning, material, and any height and weight limitations when deciding our picks. Our editors and writers keep up-to-date on the latest trends from the toy industry and share everything we know about what kids love year after year.

What to Look for in a Easter Gift for Kids

Age and Stage

When looking for gifts, especially those for younger kids, choose toys that are right for their age and stage. Nearly all toys have age recommendations or guidelines on the packaging to help find appropriate gifts. 

Gift Size

Some families may prefer gifts that fit in traditional Easter baskets while others may hide goodies during an Easter egg hunt or share them in another way. Prior to buying, decide how you will be presenting the gift and if it needs to fit into a basket or other spot. 

Seasonal

The best part about Easter gifts is that they don't have to strictly adhere to an Easter-specific theme. If you want to buy a gift outside of the box, opt for a gift that they can use in the spring or summer season.
