Today's Easter Basket Shopping Guide is totally inspired by my 3 year old. He is obsessed with any and all things that have wheels, fly or GO. Like many of our Easter basket gift ideas, the toys here are suitable for kids of different ages. The only requirement today is imagination to make things move.

Easter Basket Toy Ideas

Get your kids moving this spring with some non-candy options for kids. Here are our top picks for toys that move and go. 

  1. Circuit Racer Magnetic Block Set ($30). Tegu magnetic blocks are a huge hit in our house and the addition of wheels and a charging station make this electric car of tomorrow a great toy for today. The set includes 12 blocks in seven different shapes.
  2. Green Toys Rocket ($26). Blast off to fun with this play set from one of our favorites, Green Toys. Made entirely from recycled plastic milk containers, the set includes two astronauts and a rocket with two flip-down doors.
  3. Boat Club Play Set ($30). Take the fun on the go with this travel boat set including five boats and a cotton canvas play mat for dry "water" fun.
  4. VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels (set of 3, $20). Cruise into learning with pint-sized vehicles packed with learning. Letters, music and sounds make these engaging and entertaining toys. They also coordinate with learning mats for even more fun.
  5. Personalized Clipboard ($20). The personalized cars-theme clipboard make homework and writing practice just a little bit more fun.
