The moment the kids have been waiting for all year has finally arrived: the very first day of summer vacation. Begin the season on the right foot by stocking the backyard with plenty of playthings to keep them outside. Whether they’re relaxing – er, splashing – by the pool with you, jumping on a trampoline, or digging in the sandbox (or on the beach), everything they need for the best summer ever is right here. Just don’t forget the sunscreen.

KidKraft “Everyday Heroes” Playset. The only thing better than seeing the little ones feverishly unwrap their presents? Watching them play in all their imaginative glory (and reliving your childhood holidays, of course).

The Get Gifty: Our Holiday Gift Shop Boutique is now open.

From play sets to pianos, these are the gifts we’re giving to all small fries, teeny-tiny tots, and kids at heart (whether they’ve been naughty or nice).

Once a kid, always a kid. Well, maybe no one said that, but I wish I could still have recess and playtime – not to mention a huge, overflowing toy box. If given the opportunity to have my own “Big” moment, here’s what I’d be wishing for – and what the little ones in my family will likely end up with for the holidays.

1. Random House Little Critter® Complete Collection
Yes, I was the kid who snuck books under my covers with a flashlight when it was past my bedtime, and these Mercer Mayer titles made an appearance more than once.

2. Dexton Mercedes-Benz S-Klasse Ride-On Car
I definitely would have been the coolest kid in school (or maybe the neighborhood) puttering around in this lifelike Mercedes.

3. Guidecraft All in One Play Kitchen
There’s a solid chance my cooking skills today would be much improved had my parents decided to let me have one of these – and an Easy-Bake Oven.

4. Zoobies® Corduroy™ Storytime Pal
What kid doesn’t love the story of Corduroy? And this blanket-that-doubles-as-a-stuffed-animal would have made story time (and naptime) a whole lot more fun.

5. Guidecraft Deluxe Art Center
My parents’ kitchen table still (to their dismay) bears marks of hours spent crafting, glue-gunning, and painting. With this all-in-one craft center, budding artists can draw, paint, and create to their hearts’ content – without making a mess all over the room.

Give the kids what they want in our Ready. Set. Toys: The Playroom’s Greatest Hits Boutique, open on Tuesday, October 30, at 11AM ET.
