Easter Sunday will be here soon. Are you ready?
Did you know that Easter is considered one of the top five gift-giving holidays after Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and Christmas?
In fact, it’s estimated that people in the United States will spend over $18 billion this Easter, with the average American spending about $150 on the holiday.
That’s a lot of Easter bunnies!
Moreover, Americans will buy $2.6 billion just on Easter candy and an additional $2.9 billion on gifts. And the more than 80 percent of Americans who will actively celebrate Easter this year will also spend about $3.2 billion on Easter clothing.
Here is another fun Easter trivia bit from History.com:
Did you know? The largest Easter egg ever made was over 25 feet high and weighed over 8,000 pounds. It was built out of chocolate and marshmallow and supported by an internal steel frame.
Which begs the question: Where did Easter eggs come from in the first place? And here’s more fun Easter trivia about eggs:
The origin of the Easter Bunny dates back hundreds of years, beginning in pre-Christian Germany. Here, the hare was said to be the symbol of Spring and Fertility.
The tradition of coloring Easter eggs originated with the pysanka, a Ukrainian Easter egg that was decorated with traditional Ukrainian folk designs using a wax-resist method.
The world’s largest non-edible Easter egg is called the Vegreville Pysanka and is in Vegreville, Alberta, Canada. Standing at 31ft tall and 18ft wide, the egg weighs 5000 pounds and took 12,000 hours to complete. Complete – not build – because it is actually more of a jigsaw puzzle than a sculpture and is made from 3500 pieces of aluminum!

Easter and Fundemonium: An Egg-cellent Combination!
Along with those chocolate bunnies, candy eggs, and other treats, Easter gifts and toys are just the thing for your kid’s Easter baskets.
Last year, we offered an Easter Basket service that turned out to be very popular. We have made it easier and better this year.
Come to Fundemonium to browse our vast selection of toys, candies, and hobbies, we will help you create a special Easter Basket.
Speaking of candies, did you know the popular Easter candy known as Peeps were first sold in the 1950’s? I swear that I’ve eaten some from the first batch.
You can also view Easter Baskets and bunny gifts online and we will have them ready for pick up at your convenience. Fun Club members can even choose to have their baskets shipped.
I would not be surprised if the Easter Bunny shopped at Fundemonium too.
Fun Easter Basket Gifts for Kids of All Ages
Toddlers warm up to the idea of Easter pretty quickly, especially after their first Easter egg hunt! And what toddler doesn’t like opening presents? A colorfully wrapped Easter basket can make your child’s Easter celebration super special. And that means having something special to keep after the eggs and candies are all gone.
Ideas For the Younger Kiddos
For example, one or two Baby Bunny Hops tucked in a basket. These perfect-sized bunnies come in white, tan, blue, or pink.
Or how about a “traditional” gift of a Pinkie the Pig Softie stuffed animal? Okay, maybe piggies aren’t typical Easter animals, but any toddler will want to snuggle with this cute little softie.
And for those active and curious toddlers, maybe a classic sand bucket set. Our traditional four-piece set is perfect for the beach or the sandbox.
Older kids love toys, too, and Easter baskets are a great place to find them!
Try our LEGO® City Beach Rescue ATV playset, with a toy ATV with and a trailer for transporting the included water scooter. Or your kids can join LEGO® Friends Emma and Mia in their Cat Grooming Car, as they pick up cats in need of a trim.
Remember your View-Master® 3-D viewer? Think smaller and multi-functional. Young kids will love our Unicorn and Dinosaur Mini projectors that come with 3 discs each for a total of 24 Unicorn or Dinosaur images to view. And these cool devices can also be used without the discs as great, kid-sized flashlights!
Ideas for Young Teens and In-betweens
For young teens and “in-betweens” an Easter basket is still a required accessory for the holiday and no basket would be complete without some age-appropriate gifts tucked inside.
Some toys never go out of fashion and Yo-Yos are in that category. Surprise and delight your youngster with a Duncan Toys Pulse LED Light-Up Yo-Yo, an Intermediate Level Yo-Yo with a ball-bearing axle and dazzling LED lights.
Along with classics, new tech is always a winner for older kids and young teens. For example, try our almost indestructible LED Sky Glider that features both trick or glide flying modes and three light settings for the LED lights that run on top of the fuselage.
Gross, fascinating, mind-bending, and utterly engaging – that’s how we describe Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty collection. Choose from Super Illusions such as the Super Oil Slick or Lava, the Liquid Glass versions, and Ghostwriters options. Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty is made from nontoxic silicone materials and kids can stretch it, bounce it, pop it, tear it, and sculpt it.
And you can never go wrong with a super-cool LEGO® set. We suggest the Unstoppable Bike Chase set, an unstoppably fun Minions toy motorbike building set, featuring Gru, Stuart, and Bob toy figures.
