This is a gift that will truly keep on giving as your child grows.

This gift is all about creativity with sustainability!

(Caterpillars are sold and shipped separately.)
Whether they’re exploring on an outdoor adventure or staying in touch with the kids down the street, your kids will love using these two-way radios with a 16-mile range. It’s a fun way to stay connected without all the added distractions of a cell phone and can be enjoyed by everyone in the family.
Not much can make a kid feel cooler than mastering magic. This kit includes more than just a rabbit in a hat — with over 40 props to play with and 35 tricks to learn, there’s plenty of fun inside!
