Preschool Easter Basket

Having a preschool aged child can be so much fun, especially around the holidays. The world is a magical place to a young child, and you get to participate in that magic by playing Easter Bunny and filling up an amazing basket with things you know your child will love. Here are some of our favorite treats for preschoolers this year. 


Mon Bebe Classique Dodo Baby Doll & Accessories by Corolle  

The Gift

A new baby doll is the perfect Easter treat for the little mama in your life. Your little girl will swoon over the lifelike Mon Bebe Classique Dodo Baby Doll from Corolle. Corolle is world-renowned as the doll company, and the quality of their dolls will amaze you for years to come. They can even be passed down through generations. The Mon Bebe Classique doll is a 14-inch doll that’s perfect for ages 2 and up, and features a soft body for a realistic yet snuggly feel, and incredibly smooth vinyl skin – with just a touch of Corolle’s signature vanilla scent. Your daughter will love making the baby’s eyes open and close, and tucking baby in for a nap with the included blankie and stuffed bunny.  

Mon Bebe Classique Dodo comes with cozy pink and gray pajamas, but if your little girl tires of the sleepytime look, Corolle offers a full wardrobe of clothing and accessories for each doll. We love the modern look of Corolle’s Grenadine blouse & denim pants (the outfit even comes with coordinating teeny tiny socks!) The Fresh Riviera bloomer set is perfect for summer, featuring lightweight cotton and a precious denim sun hat. Each of Corolle’s doll outfits comes with Velcro closures, making it oh-so easy for your little one to dress her baby on her own.

With easy operation built right into the owl’s design, there is nothing complicated about providing your child with their favorite sounds.

Hippity Hop Rattle Socks by Trumpette

The Gift

Creating a fun and unique Easter basket for a small baby is hard. They are obviously too young for candy, and new toys and trinkets are great, but don’t always serve a purpose when all they want to do is blow raspberries and play with their toes. Why not combine function with fun? Now you can, with the ultra-adorable Hippity Hop Rattle Socks from Trumpette. 

Trumpette rattle socks feature cozy feather-soft socks, with an attached rattle on the toes, meant to entertain your child at any time and any place – even on the go! Each pair of plush socks features an embroidered plush bunny rattle with pom-poms on the back, as well as a cute gift box.

Today, Trumpette is the authority on chic and contemporary children’s apparel and accessories.


Smocked Ruffled Nightgown and Boiled Wool Mules by Garnet Hill

The Gift

Looking for a gift this Easter that will look adorable and feel great on your little girl? We think this Easter is the perfect time to add some cozy sleepwear and coordinating slippers to your child’s pajama stash. In particular, we are loving Garnet Hill’s smocked ruffle nightgown in this way-sassy beach bunny print and rabbit boiled wool mules (that we affectionately are calling “bunny slippers”). 

Not only are you going to fight every bone in your body not to pull her hair into sweet pig tails and throw on a pair of bunny ears to complete the look (okay, don’t fight the urge – it’s way too cute), but you’re going to really love that these pieces are chemical free. 

This oh-so-soft, swingy and ultra cute nightgown in a fun beach bunny print is made from eco-friendly Green Cotton and flame-resistant modacrylic for the sweetest (and safest) sleep you can find.

Garnet Hill knows that many parents (including the Daily Mom team) are not comfortable with the chemicals often added to children’s sleepwear to make them flame resistant. Their unique method blends flame-resistant modacrylic fibers with combed cotton to create the yarns for knit fabrics such as this nightgown, eliminating the need for any topical chemicals. Soft and breathable, these pajamas offer colors and patterns your kids will love, and the peace of mind you want – so you can both rest easy! And if that’s not enough, the styling on this particular nightgown  is pretty dreamy too, with a ruffled neck, front gathers, and fresh prints.

But don’t stop with the nightgown! Be sure to add a pair of super-soft rabbit boiled wool mules to her Easter basket. These traditional European slippers by Haflinger for Garnet Hill highlight an imaginative array of whimsical designs that will keep her feet cozy on those chilly spring mornings while the adorable animal (also available in horse or whale) detailing will make her feet do a happy dance all day long. Hand washable, the bottom of these bunny slippers are covered in latex dots for easy gripping, promising to never slow down your child. And the best part, every slipper has a tail!

Bashful Bunnies & Books by Jellycat  

The Gift

Nothing says Easter quite like the Easter Bunny, and this year when you give your little one a Jellycat Bashful Bunny, you can be sure it will be the hit gift of the holiday! Jellycat’s Bashful Bunnies are truly some of the softest stuffed animals we’ve ever come across – they’re really in a category all their own when it comes to “snuggly-ability.” Bashful Bunnies are available in 4 sizes, and the medium cream and gray bunnies (shown here) are perfect for your child’s Easter basket. Your little one won’t be able to get enough of hugging and playing with these uber-soft bunnies.  

Jellycat also offers the perfect complement to your child’s Bashful Bunny – books! We love the “If I Were A Rabbit” book featuring the gray bunny, and the “When I Am Big” book featuring the cream rabbit. “If I Were A Rabbit” features special textural areas on each page for your child to touch and feel as you’re reading along together – a great way to incorporate sensory learning. The “When I Am Big” book is a sweet tale of a little Bashful Bunny, dreaming of what he’ll be when he grows up, and all the fun he’ll have.

In fact, the mission to find a road for toy cars was so serious, it took 12 years, but InRoad Toys now offers the perfect road for toy cars to drive anywhere a child desires. Different styles of roads and now a Thomas the Train railroad tape is also available. You child’s play will only be limited by his imagination thanks to InRoad Toys.
