After what felt like the longest winter ever, spring is *finally* here. Along with the budding trees and never-ending mix of rain and snow—hey, we never said nice weather had arrived—comes the pastel-branded Easter.

We found affordable gifts they'll love playing with and promise no visits to the dentist. From pastel-hued kids' water bottles to items from your newborn checklist for the littlest eggs, we've got you covered.
