How to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in 2023?

How to celebrate cinco de mayo? A vibrant pallet of strong summer pastel colors comes whooshing by you, blowing your hair to one side. The dresses spin further tickling your face into a smile. Then galloping footsteps immediately caress your ears into a marching beat. The energetic burst of 2 dozen classical guitars meets a chorus of voices that sound like sweet war cries. These singing men don huge sombreros and look superhuman, but deep down you know they’re just mariachis. You turn around to orient yourself but are only blinded by a sea of Mexican flags. You finally catch your breath and sense of direction when your mouth suddenly falls open in amazement. Skeleton floats as big as giants parade past you like a forest of grim reapers. Someone then sticks a steaming rolled taco with creamy guacamole in your mouth. Guess they mistook your shock for hunger.  But now, you are satisfied. Not just in appetite but all the senses. For you have found yourself amid a Cinco de mayo parade. And this all sounds fantastical and something you’re familiar with. However, you might not exactly know what is Cinco de Mayo celebrated for. You’re far from alone!

Egg-cellent Easter Egg Hunt Ideas

Written By Ryan Barrett There’s probably something in the bowels of your mind that brings back Easter egg hunt ideas. You’re taking off at the sound of go. Diving through tall grass and dodging trees. Or maybe even digging through jacket pockets in a downstairs closet looking for bright pastel-painted eggs. Or perhaps it’s a smell. Every time you take in a whiff of vinegar it reminds you of egg painting so many eons ago.  And if you have some little hopping bunnies of your own it’s more than likely that you’ve passed these traditions down. Like many things recycled though, it might not be the same. Trying to recreate a childhood memory sometimes falls a little flat and feels hollow. Or you might just be bored of the same old Easter egg hunt ideas. Or god forbid, you see the boredom in your little one’s eyes. And as we know when the boredom hits, it’s not long until the eggs go flying! Not to worry though! Plenty of modern Easter game ideas will keep the boredom at bay and the eggs from flying.

Written By Ryan Barrett What comes to mind when you think of Mardi Gras 2023? A big parade of purple, green, and gold. Wacky joker-themed Mardi Gras outfits, people catching Mardi Gras beads like foul balls, and big floats. Huge joker head floats making their laughing way down Bourbon street.

Like all of our holidays, the history of Mardi Gras is a combination of religious and pagan elements. In the Mardi Gras background lore Earth-worshipping pagans invented it in the days when the moon was king. Then the Catholic church took it over and vualá! In the US the holiday dates back to the late 17th century when a French-Canadian explorer camped near New Orleans. Missing home, he and his soldiers celebrated something called Fat Tuesday where they wore Mardi Gras masks and held large feasts. The celebrations eventually traveled downstream to

What to get kids for Valentine’s day? [Ultimate Guide]

Written By Ryan Barrett Before we think of Valentine gifts for kids, let’s go back to the beginning. What comes to mind when you think of Valentine’s day? Roman soldiers? Probably not. Unless you want a big hunk of leather-clad ancient Italian as a Valentine! However, these Roman soldiers are responsible for our current incarnation of Valentine’s day. Way back when around 268 CE marriage was illegal for soldiers. Guess having a family made them weak on the battlefield. Our heart-loving hero, a priest named Valentine, thought this incredibly unjust, and performed marriages in secret for the soldiers. Fast forward to now- how the heck did we get from a superspy hero priest to candy hearts? Well like any holiday in the US it’s a mixture of pagan and Christian traditions. The English poet Gregory Chaucer wrote while in prison about ‘sending’ a Valentine. Fast forward to the 19th century, the British candy company Cadbury invented heart-shaped chocolates to sell more chocolates on Valentine’s day. These days imagine how your kids feel if you feel bored with the same old valentine gifts for kids. There’s a slight calm perhaps as they look down in defeat at those colorless chocolates. Then

2022 Best Military Toys For Every Little Rambo and Rambette

Written By: Ryan Barrett Since the time of cavemen children, especially boys, have been acting out some kind of battle scene with military toys, plastic or prehistoric. Try to imagine it: One group of boys throwing invisible(or real!) rocks and clubs at another group of pre-teen invaders. Even then, boys used some toys to act out their warring fantasies. Think about how long cave boys and girls could pretend to be battling groups of plain old dinosaurs and wooly mammoths. It would be only a matter of time before those cave kids trade their invisible claws in for play stone mallets and swords.   Today’s boys and girls are no different. Well, maybe they bathe more frequently and don’t wear animal skin overalls. However, the yearning to use props to act out whatever battle scene has stayed the same. So in a way, we are following the ancient tradition of military toys. We want your little ones to have the most enjoyment out of playtime. This is why we offer a plethora of military toys. Military toys are the perfect gift for Christmas. Our variety of military toys can fit snuggly like a grenade in a stocking or toy tank parked
