Fly Through the Air with a Zip Line for Kids!

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s your child on a super cool Zip Line for Kids!

It's just as fun as it looks!

We all know how hard it is to get kids to go outside and play these days. From video games to TV shows, there’s no limit to electronic indoor distractions that will keep your little one parked firmly on the couch. How can the beauty of nature compare to an HD movie in 3D? My advice: turn your backyard from “blah” to “a-ha!” with a kids zip line.

Zip lines are the latest trend in awesome Outdoor Toys. The concept is simple. String the sturdy line up between two trees in the backyard or some other support, grab the handles, and zip away! No one can resist the urge to swing through the air on their very own zip line.  It’s a toy that will have all the kids in the neighborhood begging to give it a try.

Not only are they fun, zip lines are also great exercise. They build arm strength and coordination. Your little girl or boy will love swinging through the backyard and you’ll love this healthy alternative to hours in front of a computer or TV screen. Everybody wins!

At Fantasy Toyland, we have three different types of zip lines so you can find one perfect for your budget and needs. Also, you can place the zip line at the height you deem appropriate. As the child ages, move the zip line up the tree for a more daring zipping adventure. We even have a backyard zip line that can hold up to 250 pounds, that way adults can get their zip on too!

Don’t let the warm weather pass without letting your kids (or yourself) have fun on a cool zip line. This amazing toy will be the start of great summer memories you and your children will have forever!

Laugh Out Loud with a Funny Costume!

Picture this. You’re out with your friends at a Halloween costume party. Your friends are all dressed up and you look awesome. You’ve been planning this costume for weeks, from colored shoes to coordinated wig. The lights are flashing, the bass is pounding, when suddenly you spot it. Right in the middle of the dance floor, the center of attention.

You know you want it.

Your drink falls from your hand, beer spilling across the dance floor. Your mouth drops. This undeniable costume has got you under its spell, like a fart-inspired siren leading you to a pink polyester doom. You know your destiny.

You must party with this whoopie cushion, party until you can party no more.

A Funny Costume has that effect on people. It captures all eyes and cracks smiles around the room. This Halloween is the perfect time to opt for an easy and hilarious funny costume.

If you’re in college, rocking a funny costume is a must. Funny outfits are perfect as college costumes for several reasons. They grab the spotlight and show everyone that you know how to laugh at yourself. People look at someone in a Fruit Costume and say, “Now there’s someone who knows how to have a good time!” Also, many of these Halloween costumes are easy one-piece outfits. Just put it on and head out the door. No muss, no fuss. It doesn’t get better than that. Add in the benefit of looking uniquely absurd and these silly college costumes will make you the life of the party!

Also, as an adult, you shouldn’t miss out on a chance to try an Offensive Costume. Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Offensive? Why would I want to offend people?” Because it’s funny. That’s why. A little offense is key to humor. There’s a reason Barney isn’t known as a world-renowned comedian. Besides the fact that he’s a dinosaur. Shocking someone with a costume that’s a bit crass is utterly hilarious and a great conversation starter.

Even if you’re not into offensive humor, a Pun Costume might be right up your alley. English is full of great opportunities for a little punning. Show off your wordplay prowess in a clever pun costume and have everyone laughing.

Halloween is all about being goofy. On this day of all days, why be serious? Save your slacks and dresses for your next business meeting. You should grab all of your friends in a Group Funny Costume or go as a Funny Couples Costume. No matter how you do it, bust out a funny costume and let the fun begin!

Look Irresistible in a Sexy Costume this Halloween!

Sexy costumes for women have gotten a bad rap. Ever since the blockbuster Mean Girls plainly proclaimed that Halloween is just an excuse for girls to dress scantily, people have been seriously hating on this time-honored tradition. “Sexy costumes are inappropriate,” they say. “You should dress like a nun, you dirty heathen,” they say. But you know what? Enough is enough. This Halloween, all ladies should grab a super hot costume and strut their stuff, no matter what the haters say.

Here at Fantasy Toyland, we know that women want to look sexy on the holidays and that’s how we like it. That’s why we’ve got lots of sexy costume ideas that will help them do just that. On the topic of Mean Girls, remember how Regina George and crew all dressed up as animals and looked super cute? We’ve got Sexy Animal Costumes that will help you get a look just as hot. We’ve got classic Sexy Cat Costumes and Bunny Halloween Costumes that will have everyone chasing your tail.

If animals aren’t the look you want, try a Sexy Classic Costume. There are witches, pirates, and nymphs that will make your Halloween outfit just racy enough. There are so many options and you can pick one that perfectly matches your personality. How about a sexy angel costume? It’ll will have everyone saying “Hallelujah!” You’ll look absolutely heavenly.

If you like pop music, you’ll freak over a Lady Gaga Costume or a Katy Perry Costume. Perry’s new movie Katy Perry: Part of Me will make these costumes a hot commodity. You’ll be a hot commodity too if you dress up as the spunky California girl for Halloween.

Sexy costumes, much like funny costumes, are also great college costumes. You’re young and everybody knows you look good so show it off! A high hemline and a pair of heels is sure to grab the attention of that cutie from your English seminar at your next college costume party.

At the end of the day, dressing in a sexy costume isn’t inappropriate. And anyone who thinks so should keep their patriarchal ideas about women’s wholesomeness to themselves.  Sexy costumes are awesome. Ladies, look smoking this Halloween with a sexy adult costume. You go girl.

Whether using it to teach or just having some fun, an astronaut costume is an excellent choice.
