Easter traditions have changed a lot since I was a kid. Coloring hard-boiled eggs and receiving a big-bowed Easter basket full of chocolate eggs and a pastel-colored stuffed bunny was the sum of the holiday. Some neighborhoods had Easter egg hunts as well. Today, Easter trends go far beyond the simplicity of a few chocolate treats and a stuffie.
Sorting through a plethora of confections and chocolatey treats each Easter is natural, but giving toys during this holiday is a fairly new concept. Apparently, Easter is the second busiest time of year for toys sales! Who knew! While many of us are still stuck in our old-school ways, the fact is, trends and traditions are changing with each generation. And going with the flow, a new Easter tradition is to give endearing toys. With that in mind, Hasbro is always my first stop when looking for playthings. They offer a wide variety of high-quality toys and games for kids of all ages.
