There's the Easter meal to prepare, the Easter candy to buy, but nothing is as important as making the perfect Easter baskets for the kids in your life. Thinking of Easter gifts for kids is the most fun, as you try to come up with great ideas to fill up each and every basket you have to assemble. But there's also a challenge to it, too. You want to give them Easter toys that are related to their likes and interests, but you also want to stay within the theme of bunnies, chicks, eggs and other springtime favorites. Size is a factor, too, since you might want to make sure that everything fits in a basket.

To take the guessing game out of picking the perfect gift, here are some adorable Easter toys you can give this year, including educational toys, Easter games to play with family, collectible toys (which, conveniently, often come in egg-like packaging) and precious stuffed animals. No matter who you're shopping for, this roundup includes top-rated toy ideas for babies, toddlers and big kids, so consider this your one-stop shop. (Got a really big kid at home? Check out our guide to teen Easter basket ideas, too.)
