In case you missed the news -- Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, one the biggest movie events of the year, is in theaters now! And Walmart is your one-stop shop for all things Batman and Superman.

Of course there are loads of toys sprinkled throughout the store. Even my 14-year-old son was drooling over the new Epic Strike Batmobile when we were checking the toys out the other day. He was Batman, I kid you not, for 3 Halloweens in a row -- so great was his love for this superhero when he was little.

And this massive Batman action figure surely would have been on his Christmas list. I'm telling you, I was this|close to buying him one just for old time's sake... Instead, we grabbed a couple of bags of the Batman v Superman-branded Doritos and a box of the movie-exclusive Rice Krispies Treats for a little spring break snack!

But if your little one is into these super guys, you'll also want to look for these other items throughout the store:

  • costume & party -- voice changing Batman mask, cowls, capes
  • apparel -- adult and kids tees priced at $8.96 and $7.97
  • food -- 20-pack Doritos with exclusive comic book
  • bedding -- Batman comforter, throw, pillows
  • entertainment items -- DVDs, video games, books

Play Choose Your Hero on Walmart.com

Head over to Walmart.com/chooseyourhero to play the Choose Your Hero game. Earn votes for your favorite superhero and win digital prizes that can be downloaded instantly! Sounds like some perfect rainy day fun over spring break.

While you're on the site, you can also shop all the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice gear online from the comfort of your own home. My favorite way to shop -- no crowds, no hassle!

Have you seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice yet? I've heard mixed reviews, so I'm curious to hear your thoughts!

Under $10 Preteen Easter Basket

by Tara Kuczykowski on March 11, 2016 · 0 comments

As I've mentioned in years past, Easter is a pretty low-key holiday for our family. My kids know the true reason for the celebration, but even so, we do like to treat them to a little something special. We typically keep it very budget-friendly, usually centered around some sort of theme. We did an outdoor activity basket one year and a Peeps taste test basket last year (HUGE hit! But typically we avoid so much candy).

This year, after perusing the wide assortment of Easter goodies at Walmart, I decided that I could budget $10 per child and still put together a pretty cute Easter basket filled with useful items. After all, who cares if something is inexpensive if it's junk that will never get used? It's the whole cheap versus frugal conundrum...

Anyhow, I was particularly happy with the basket I put together for my preteen daughter. She's 11, and that age is just SO hard to buy for! I know she's going to love it, so let me show you what I came up with for under $10.

In addition to the cute stuffed bunny rabbit ($0.98) and Reese's Pieces carrot ($1) pictured at the top of this post, I also picked up a colorful foam-covered notebook ($0.98), a dozen pencils ($0.98), and a sheet of pretty foiled butterfly stickers ($0.97). My girl loves to draw and write notes, so I know she'll appreciate these items.

This bunny tic-tac-toe set ($0.98) is really cute, and as long as we can manage to keep all of the pieces together, I suspect it will get a lot use on road trips. The bunny rabbit chalk ($0.98) should be a hit, as well, because drawing!

And finally, I tossed in a package of classic Peeps ($1), because even though they gross me out, my kids love them!

After picking up a plastic Easter basket and package of Easter grass (both $0.98 ea.), my grand total came to $9.83. Not bad, huh?! I'm so excited to see what she thinks about it on Easter morning.

What are you stuffing in your Easter basket(s) this year?

Girls’ Gift Idea: GoldieBlox Playsets

by Tara Kuczykowski on December 20, 2015 · 0 comments

I've heard wonderful things about the GoldieBlox line of toys, but I haven't purchased any for my girls because I worried that they were on the verge of being too old for them. But when Walmart asked if I was interested in trying out the Goldie Blox and the Dunk Tank set, I figured my 9-year-old, Addie, might enjoy checking it out -- and if it was too young for her, we'd donate it.

If you're not familiar with them, GoldieBlox toys are designed to get girls building with fun and colorful sets that tap into STEM-based learning.

The GoldieBlox and the Dunk Tank set, specifically, is a problem-solving kit. Goldie needs to find a way to get her dog, Nacho, clean. However, Nacho hates water and actually likes being dirty. As kids read along, they construct a dunk tank and learn about hinges and levers in the process.

GoldieBlox sets are designed for ages 4-9. Obviously, kids at the younger end of the age range are going to need some assistance reading and building the sets, but older children should be able to complete the set unassisted. Addie sat down and read the book and constructed the dunk tank unassisted in about 15 minutes.

While she truly loved the set and played with the completed dunk tank for quite awhile after building it, unfortunately, the toy hasn't had much staying power in our house. I haven't seen her play with it once since she built it over a week ago, so I think I was right about these toys perhaps being a bit too young for her.

However, I would wholeheartedly recommend them for a younger child, as they really do hit the mark in making building fun and engaging. I noticed on the GoldieBlox website that they have a new open-ended building set (GoldieBlox and the Builder's Survival Kit) that's targeted for ages 7-12, so I think this might be a better fit for my girls.

GoldieBlox and the Dunk Tank can be found at Walmart and on Walmart.com for $19.99. It received a Gold Seal for the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Best Toy Award!
