Our friends at the Toy Corner in Oakton, Virginia just gave us their "Insider's List" of top picks for summer fun. The list has something for every age group from young to adult.
So whether you need to fill up your backyard with something fun for the long summer days or if you need the perfect hostess picnic gift or birthday gift, we have some great options for you!
1. Ring Stix: Ring toss with a twist. Indoors, outdoors, alone or with a friend.
2. Smak-A-Ball: Great catch game from a locally owned company in Falls Church, VA.
3. Rainbow Loom: Super fun rubber band bracelet making kit.
4. Hit Mit: The paddle ball game that turns your hand into the paddle.
5. Spooner Boards: The ultimate fun board! Any surface, any space. Made in the U.S.A.
6. Skylight Rocket: Air powered lighted night rockets. Just in time for the 4th of July.
7. Bike Brighte: Be cool! Be seen! Blasts hyper bright sprays of light and fits any bike.
8. Laser Maze™ : Beam bending logic game. Hit the targets twin. From a local Alexandria, VA company ThinkFun.
9. Big Bag of Science: 70+ activities from creating your own blizzard to erupting a soda geyser.
10. Sticker Speakers: Turns anything from your empty coffee up to a cooler into a speaker. Great for the beach.
The Toy Corner carries all of the items listed. In addition, they offer free gift wrapping if you need a wonderful gift for a BBQ or child's party. I picked up the Smack-A-Ball for a friend's fête and it was a hit with her son. Bring something other than dessert or potato salad=;)
The Toy Corner is currently having a sidewalk sale and is offering deep discounts on some fun toys and gizmos.
