    4. A pack of Lucky Fortune collectible bracelets they'll love cracking open to reveal a piece of jewelry and a paper fortune. Just think of how cute their lil' arm will look with a stack of tiny charm bracelets (just like you!).

    13. A pack of Frozen 2 instant film, so the next time they take silly selfies it'll look like they're inside Elsa's winter wonderland.

    14. A delectable heart-shaped cookie you can personalize with your kiddo's name — perfect if you have more than one tyke so they won't argue over which treat belongs to them.

    15. A Haunted Mansion board game that'll bring your kiddos on a journey through the rooms from the classic ride. The goal? Collect Ghost cards to earn points while also paying tribute to their favorite part about visiting Disney.

    18. A bubble wand set made of beechwood and metal kids can use over and over again. Simply let your mini-me run wild blowing bubbles to their heart's content — when playtime is over, rinse off and dry the wands after each use to keep it in good condition.

    30. A unicorn slime kit with over 24,000 5-star reviews that essentially prove kids and parents alike are big fans. Glitter, foam beads, and a gloopy substance — what could go wrong?!

    The kit comes with everything they'll need to make their own slime! It's recommended for kids ages 7 and up.

    Promising review: "This is the best slime kit I’ve come across. I saw it last minute before my daughter’s birthday (11) and thought I’d get it as an add-on to her presents. It ended up being her favorite gift! Her brother (8) joined in and made slime with her and she still has enough to make more of all types." —Elizabeth & Rick
