Whether your little one is not a big fan of chocolate, or you are trying to avoid overdoing it this Easter, we have you covered with some non-edible gift ideas. The kids will love them!

Dinosaur or Princess ‘eggs’

Put these eggs in water and watch your very own dinosaur or princess hatch! It takes around 48 hours for the toy to hatch completely and the kids will enjoy watching its progress from its very first little crack. Also available in dragon, lizard and fairy. Visit local stockist Isla and Me (in Mooloolaba) or see their website.

We’re Going on an Egg Hunt
