Radz (perfect for Easter baskets!)


Easter is a great time for celebrating, and for...candy!  I am not sure who it is that likes putting the Easter baskets together more, me or my husband? Luckily, it's something we end up doing together.  Then hubby runs around the backyard hiding the eggs, and pretending he is the Great Easter Bunny, lol.  He takes great pride in his strategic placement of the eggs (and I secretly rearrange the baskets to be pretty ;) ).


This year we're looking for basket items that will be around for longer than just the time it takes to eat them.  One item we've found that would be great any time of year, but is especially perfect for Easter Baskets, is Radz.  They're cute little candy containers that have interchangeable hats (lids), and are just the right size for little hands.

The cutest thing about them is you pull their hats back and the candy comes out on the tongue. The candy itself is gluten & peanut-free and comes in four delicious flavors.  My son liked the two dispensers he received quite a bit, and he especially liked that each had a sturdy clip so he could carry a cool Radz dude along with him on his belt loop.




What makes these little guys really great, is that along with the candy and dispenser each character comes with a special code that allows you to log onto RadzWorld.com, a website that was created with the intent of being a safe and fun area for the little ones to access games, videos, coloring sheets, and the like.  My son is a collector at heart, so he enjoyed pouring over the flyer and looking at the different Radz characters. He especially deeeeeelighted to come across the characters with his mother and father's school affiliations/rivals (MSU and UM) on the page, and was quick to note whose 'side' he was on for the day. ;)


And then he wanted to log onto the site.  The website is colorful, fun, and easy to navigate.  A big bonus is that Radz has their own in-house animation staff, so new original animations are available every week.

All in all it was a fun experience, and at very affordable prices, these are a great choice for putting into the kiddos Easter baskets.  You can find them for sale on the Radz website, which will direct you to CandyFavorites.com, and you find them at Amazon.

Radz games are also available in the Apple App store.

You can learn more about Radz by logging onto their website.
You can also follow them on Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, and/or Pinterest.

  4. Those look like a lot of fun. I like doing Easter baskets, too. My husband has to shop with me so I don't go overboard. lol We don't do much candy, but instead opt for books, a movie, toys, and things like that.

    1. We've always put an Easter DVD in and a book, but everything else seems gone in a flash. I like the idea of these because they're not gone-in-a-flash items (and they're a lot sturdier than the other candy dispensers you come across).

    1. The kids do think they're fun, and they're small enough to nestle right down there in the basket. :)

    1. Thanks, Kristi. I think it's fun when they collect things. Are biggest collection so far was the little die cast cars. He's only 5 but he literally collected them for years and loved them (he still plays w/them but not as much).

  13. That is a neat idea, adds to the collector in all and lets one play with their food too haha

    1. I think he likes the collection idea better than anything else. So curious if he'll like to collect things when he's older (but so not rushing it ;) ).

  14. So Radz is a candy dispenser? That's kinda cool. Although I'm looking to do other things than a ton of candy this year. We just got rid of the Christmas stocking candy and Halloween candy that proceeded that. ;)

  16. Sometimes I am amazed at my mind being a step ahead. As I was reading the line "each character comes with a special code that allows you to"...I was already thinking how cool it would be to have an M&M dispenser that came with a code that I could unlock and get a few every couple days. But what's to stop me against breaking it or going to get a stash from somewhere else. I know - totally not the point.
