Backyard League Gaming Baseball
Baseball meets interactive active gaming! The Backyard League Gaming Baseball is a smart baseball that will keep your ball player entertained and practicing for hours!
With a super easy quick set-up and connection to an iOS or Android device, the ball is ready to use. This regulation sized ball pairs with your device to measure speed, distance, height, throws, catches, transfer time, drop balls, and more.

The Backyard League Gaming baseball was super simple to get started. Open the box and you will find all the tools needed in one box! Download the app to a supported device to have pictures and instructions walk you through the start-up process.
My children really enjoyed the app component to this baseball. The app allows you to personalize a team name, set goals for yourself, and watch as you work to achieve them! This smart baseball will keep a child’s attention for quite some time, allowing them to gain necessary skills and show their improvements on the field!

Kasel Krafts Signature Sensory Kits
There are so many play options for kids that involve screens and batteries. But sometimes you just need a hands-on play option for after-school, indoor recess fun, or travel.
Kasel Krafts has a variety of adorable and creative kits that spark imagination and provide a whole lot of fun! Each kit includes three jars of signature sensory dough and a dough roller along with themed items that go with each kit. We got the Mermaid kit and my daughters love it!
Outnumbered: Improbable Heroes Game
Board games don’t have to end in tears when one person “wins.” That’s what my kids discovered when playing Outnumbered: Improbable Heroes, a math-based cooperative strategy game.
In this game, one to six players work together to help the Heroes defeat the Villains as they develop their mental math skills. Did you catch that a kiddo can play this board game solo? Genius! Recommended for kids ages 8 and older. Available at Amazon.
Pop2Play 2-In-1 Kitchen Nursery
Don’t have a lot of space? This toy is the perfect solution for BIG fun that folds up when you’re done! This storable pop-up play set can be assembled in under five minutes and folds flat for easy storage.
This one is especially nifty as it has a kitchen on one side and a nursery on the other for LOTS of imaginative play! Recommended for kids ages 2 and older. Available at Amazon.
My son loves board games! In this game, players design a Japanese garden by skillfully placing stones, bushes, trees, ponds, and pagodas on multiple levels.
Receive points during the game for your placed garden tiles, scoring more points the higher the layer, with a bonus for the fifth layer. Every garden will look different, and every game plays differently – that’s the fun of it! Recommended for kids ages 8 and up. Available at Amazon.
You may have played Sequence for adults…well, there’s a kids’ version, too! This is perfect for pre-readers as it just uses pictures.
Play a card from your hand and place your chip on the corresponding character on the board. The first with four chips in a row wins! Recommended for kids ages 3 to 6. Available at Amazon.
My littles love this one! It’s a classic, simple game that helps kids with shape recognition and colors. Push a button and the ducks “swim” around the pond (they quack, too!).
Take turns picking up ducks to check the bottom and see if it matches the shape you picked. The first to find all three matching ducks wins! Recommended for kids ages 3 and up. Available at Amazon.
You’ve for sure heard of Let’s Go Fishin’, right? I’m pretty sure I played this as a kid. Flip the switch and the pond will spin as the fish’s mouths open and close. Use your rod to “reel in” your big catch! Recommended for kids ages 4 and up. Available on Amazon.
Scratch & Scribble Scratch Art Kits
Go from just plain black to just plain beautiful in no time at all with Scratch and Scribble scratch art kits. Each kit has 4 illustrated Scratch and Scribble cards and an included scratching tool!
Pick from fun and exciting designs, including Fantastic Dragons, Magical Unicorns, Monster Pals, Ocean Life, and colorful Safari! Available on Amazon.
