About Color My Cookie
We want you to feel like a pro cookie decorator – so we give you a bit of a head start! Our cookies are pre-iced, which preserves their freshness and provides the perfect canvas for your creativity. We include everything you need: edible watercolors, icing, edible décor, and an online tutorial where we give you tips & tricks for making your cookies come to life.
You’ll be delighted by your masterpiece, even before your first bite!
What do piñatas, maracas, and sombreros all have in common? Time to party of course! The kit contains six cookies to decorate, a cookie palette with food-safe water colors, cups, paintbrushes, sprinkles and more. Everything you need to paint your cookie and eat it too.
My crew loved being able to decorate their own cookie with some of the edible water color paint. Each one was very different but they were ALL colorful! You can add several layers to darken up the colors if you would like. Plus there are sprinkles and other edible decorations to add details to each piece! And if you need a little help to get started, simply fire up the instructional video for a step by step how-to guide. These are great for a party, after dinner fun, or even when it’s just too hot to play outside.

About Stomp Rocket
Run, Jump, STOMP!™ For over 25 years, the Stomp Rocket has been entertaining kids around the world bringing fun, active play and S.T.E.M. learning opportunities. The Stomp Rocket® is a family owned brand founded in 1993 in Minden, Nevada. What started as a small business with the Original Stomp Rocket® toys, has grown into a thriving company that sold over 7 million toys in the United States and internationally.
Several generations of children have grown with the Stomp Rocket® 100% kid-powered toys™, earning parents’ trust and brand loyalty. The Stomp Rocket® has become a hallmark name for all rocket launching toys.
Instead of 1, 2, 3, it’s run, jump, STOMP! Let the kids launch their own rockets in the backyard by using the power of their own two feet. And with these glow in the dark rockets, the fun doesn’t have to stop just because it’s dark outside! And there are no batteries or screens to worry about either.
There is very little assembly required out of the box so the rockets are ready for launch within minutes. And you never have to worry about plugging it in since it’s powered by the jump pad. Which makes it perfect not just for the back yard, but even at the park or the beach on the go! But get ready for a challenge, as the kids went against the adults and the results surprised us too.

At Skoolzy, we’re big fans of children learning through play and know how important it is for a child’s social, emotional, and physical development. Learning toys are a great way for young children to play and develop their social and cognitive skills which is why we’ve designed every toy for maximum fun while improving early childhood development skills including hand dexterity, fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, logic, and color & letter recognition.
Perfect for little fingers still learning hand and eye coordination, these brightly colored building pieces are easy to manipulate. There are no rules, or right or wrong ways to create and build. Simply imagine and start putting the different shape pieces together. Great to improve logic and problem solving skills for both boys and girls.
The Jumbo Create O Flakes – Snowflake Connect from Skoolzy is a STEM building and construction toy which teaches children design, experimentation, spatial thinking as well as mechanical abilities. The 120 pieces included in each sturdy carrying tote makes for endless hours of fun! We found these were a great way for the older and younger children to interact and play together as the pieces were easy to use and fit together.
