Let's go outside -- don't worry if it's too cold or wet at the moment. If you have a little sportsman, adventurer, or nature nut, take a browse at these Gift Guide goodies for the Outdoor Lover.


Bug Bonz (build-a-bug kit)

Cost: $20

Where to Buy: amazon.com, fatbraintoys.com

Extras: You don't have to deal with real bugs -- ick!

Why I Love It: It's like a Mr. Potato Head in bug form. Your little one uses her imagination to interconnect wings, claws and stingers to make anatomically incorrect insects.


Snow Sled Deluxe

Cost: $35

Where to Buy: sleds.comtarget.com

Extras: Okay, so you need to live in an area where there's snow. But it wouldn't be a Gift Guide without a sled! Fits kids up to age 2.

Why I Love It: You don't have to listen to your 2-year-old complain, "Mommy, I'm cold. Mommy, I'm wet." The soft plastic shield keeps them safe and dry so they can enjoy the ride!




Gertie Ball (world's most catchable ball)

Cost: $8

Where to Buy: smallworldtoys.com, stewarttoys.com

Extras: Besides the versions you see here, Gerties come in soccer balls and basketballs and in a variety of other fun colors and textures.

Why I Love It: Toddlers get frustrated so easily. Even 2 year olds can hold on to this cushy cool ball and feel like Brett Favre.
