Easter basket gifts for kids

Forget chocolate bunnies and jelly beans. If you are tired of the same old stuff, why not fill this year's Easter baskets with fun, spring-themed toys and books?

"The Easter Bunny has many favorites other than sweets and treats," said Laurie Schacht, who lives in Woodmere and is co-publisher of "The Toy Insider," a consumer guide for parents. "A little sugar is OK, but fill the baskets with toys and books that keep kids engaged. Mix it up with their favorite characters, toys that teach and classic creative play items."

Take a look at our fun suggestions for the Easter basket this year.
