Stompers will assist kids in exploring in the snow — and sand in warmer months. They are very easy to snap on or off kid's feet, shoes, or boots. Kids can pretend they are animals leaving tracks in the snow. Available in green dinosaur tracks, pink bear tracks, and blue bear tracks. Fits shoe and boot sizes up to Size 5.
The modular split mold sand castle system allows kids to build beautiful sand or snow structures in a short amount of time. Just buckle it, fill it, and Create A Castle. This premium turret/tower kit includes the Create A Castle 10 inch turret split system cylinder, a stackable 6 inch split system cylinder for additional height, a corbel to add stabilization and a beautiful effect in between the towers, battlement brick form, window cutter and a mesh backpack for simple transportation and cleanup!
Kids can capture all of their adventures on land or in water, through 720p HD video or photos. Fasten the bike mount on your ride or the adhesive flat mount to your skateboard or helmet and shoot video on the go. It’s snow proof — getting this camera wet is part of the fun with the waterproof case! Take underwater shots and retrieve the camera easily with the floating handle. Have a wide landscape you want to capture? Pop on the wide-angle lens and record the whole view. Unleash your creativity with options for time-lapse photos, stop-motion video, burst mode, fast- and slow-motion video, frames, wide-angle lens and special effects.
Kids can scoop, pack, and fling snowballs! Create the perfect snowball. Toss snow like lacrosse balls. Includes a one-piece snow flinger with sliding handle.
This bright, vibrant snow tube is made with weather-resistant, Polar-Shield material that won’t freeze or crack in cold temperatures. It also features two oversized handles and a three-way interlocking release valve for easy inflation and deflation.
Just add water to the Cra-Z-Snow to create a powder that looks and feels like real snow! One tub of the powder makes more than 1.5 gallons of snow. Kids can also use Cra-Z-Snow as they make slime for even more gooey fun.
