5. Stomp Rocket Jr. Glow Kit

Ages: 3 and up

The Stomp Rocket Jr. Glow Kit is another multiple-returning-favoite among kids’ toys for the spring and summer of 2016.

I am not one to use 90s lingo lightly, but these stomp rockets are…DA BOMB. Ha! There are 4 rockets included, each one glows in the dark and is capable of high-flying up to 100 feet skyward. Yep, stomp-powered fun!

What a cute idea! Frozen was a Disney movie favorite of mine. Yep, I know every single word of every single song. Shush with your judgements! I would totally get this set-up because the Kinetic Sand resembles snow. Kids are put in the role of Elsa to craft shimmering Olaf.

10. Crazy Forts

Ages: 5 to 9

The final pick on this year’s list of the top ten kids’ toys is Crazy Forts.

I LOVE this so much! When I was little, my siblings and I would build the messiest, lumpiest forts ever from couch cushions, pillows, and loads of blankets. Much to the dismay of our mother. This fort builder is 69 snap-together sticks for structure. All you need are some sheets.
