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.

I'm just going to count on you to let me know what's cool for my 5 year old Grandson!

mail4rosey said...

They really are fun. Thanks for visiting. :)

mail4rosey said...

Bah, if we lived closer they could play together and tell us! : )

My Journey With Candida said...

This is something my Grandson would love. Thanks for the Easter Basket idea, we were looking for something different to put in them.

Carla said...

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.

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for stopping by, we were looking for different this year too. :)

mail4rosey said...

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).

How cute! I put together a hunt with clues. The Easter Bunny hides eggs in the strangest of spots!

My neice aid nephew would love this!!

Easter Bunnies are good at such things, aren't they?? :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for reading. :)

mail4rosey said...

I knew what you meant. ;)

Colette S said...

Haha those are so fun!
I like the idea.

I still have no plans for Easter. Maybe church , the hunt for the younger one and we'll see :)

Masshole Mommy said...

Those are so cool - and I know the gruesome twosome would like them.

mail4rosey said...

We used to do Sunrise Service in Florida but it's TOO COLD up here to do that, I miss it every single year. :)

mail4rosey said...

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

ReviewsSheROTE Pamela R said...

They do look super fun! My kids would like the clip too, my son has a utility belt that he carries all his clip toys on--SO CUTE

Danielle @ We Have It All said...

Ya know, I saw these recently in an ad but I couldn't tell exactly what they were. I'm so glad to see this so now I know more. Thanks for the info!

mail4rosey said...

Those little things do impress the kiddos, you're right. Happy Easter to you!

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for reading, Danielle. :)

Kristi said...

Those look so cool! Glad your son enjoyed them and the website. My boys are collectors too. I am heading to Amazon.com to check these out.

mail4rosey said...

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).

Theresa said...

I haven't heard of these. They do sound like a ton of delicious fun! And definitely perfect for an Easter basket!

Juliana RW said...

I never heard too but they looks fun :D

Pat Hatt said...

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

Heather said...

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. ;)

Gladys Parker said...

So cute and my grandson, probably granddaughter would love em! Thanks for sharing!

Kenya G. Johnson said...

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.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

How fun! That is perfect for an Easter basket. I wish I still got an Easter basket :) hehe.

Raising Reagan said...

I'm sure Reagan would be all over these ~ your little man is SO cute! We should hook our kids up when they are older!

LOL

~ Noelle said...

those are super cute :)
thanks for sharing

mail4rosey said...

Agreed. :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, they were fun. :)

mail4rosey said...

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 ;) ).

mail4rosey said...

Candy season...October through December...that's what we could call it, yes? :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for reading. :)

mail4rosey said...

LOL at your mind on the M&Ms. You.will.break.the.addiction. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Hubby still gets one. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Says the mom of the little beauty queen, lol. Speaking of...your new avatar is awesome. :)

mail4rosey said...

That's a good idea, I bet the homemade ones are much nicer to buy than the ones premade i the store.

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for visiting. :)

Dee from MadameDeals said...

Cool! My nephews and niece will love this

mail4rosey said...

The candy's good too, and small so they aren't overindulging.

Jillian Nicole said...

I will be in the US after Easter and I will definitely be looking out for them to bring back home for the kids. Thanks for sharing this.
