Christmas Tree Hat with Star
Sno-Paint Sno-Man Kit ($20.00)
This Sno-Paint Sno-Man Kit from Poof-Slinky goes way beyond the traditional top
hat and carrot nose! Sure those are in there, along with six red and six blue
buttons; but, what makes this fun-in-the-snow kit stand out is the three sno-paint
markers and three packages of sno-paint powder. Simply add some powder to
one of the flip-top markers, add warm water, and start creating a technicolor
sno-man. Ages 5 & up.
There's nothing like a fresh blanket of new snow! Nothing like it to get out in a pair
of these Poof-Slinky Sno-Stompers and leave fresh monster tracks, that is. These
colorful Sno-Stompers strap on kids' boots and will have the neighbors wondering
what strange creature wandered by. Assorted, randomly selected colors and
creatures. Ages 5 & up.
Stiga Snow Kick Scooter for Snow ($79.99)
Take to the drifts and have some fun on this Stiga Snow Kick Scooter for Snow.
Kids love the freedom and fun scooters provide and, with this innovative new
scooter/snowboard hybrid, they won't have to give up going for a scooter ride
just because the snow flies. The height-adjustable, handlebar with comfort grips
and rotating front ski lets kids steer this lightweight steel and aluminum scooter
down and around hills. The Snow Kick Scooter also folds for easy transit to the
slopes and warm-weather storage. Ages 5 & up. 110 pound maximum weight
Snofling Snow Ball Throwing Stick ($7.95)
The Snofling Snow Ball Throwing Stick from Dennet makes outdoor fun and
snowball fights extra invigorating. Using this red, high-impact plastic, winter fun
accessory, kids can simply push it into a snow bank to pack snow in the open
end and then fling snowballs high into the air and far afield. We especially
appreciate that the snowballs don't get as hard packed as they do when they're
made by hand - making them a bit safer and softer if playmates are the targets.
The 22-inch-long Snofling also is great fun for playing in the winter white with your
favorite pooch! And, it doubles as a horn so kids can sound their battle cry
before letting snowballs fly at their foes! Ages 3 & up.
The Indoor Snowballs Family Pack ($36.00)
No frozen fingers, no icicles on your mittens, no snow required! The IndoorSnowballs Family Pack is as perfect for Minnesota as it is for California and this handled bucket of 40 soft and washable snowballs from Snowtime Anytime will get the room buzzing, start the whole family laughing, and propel everyone off the couch to have a wonderfully warm and delightfully dry snowball fight. Ages 3 & up.
Inflatable Snow Castle ($44.00)
Why have an ordinary fort when you can have a castle? Why indeed! This
Inflatable Snow Castle from Snowtime Anytime doesn't need snow, and it
doesn't even need our Indoor Snowballs (sold separately) for kids to have a blast
with it (although it really is super fun for snowball fights!). That's because
youngsters can use this Inflatable Snow Castle for both pretend prince and
princess play and as a secure spot from which to send snowballs flying at their
real or imaginary opponents. Includes foot pump and repair kit. Ages 3 & up.
