Gift Ideas for Sporty Kids and Superheroes

Need some good gift ideas for the nieces, nephews, cousins and kids in your life? Look no farther – Zamzee has you covered with this holiday gift guide for sporty kids and superheroes.

Superhero Cape

The first accessory any sporty kid or superhero needs is a superhero cape. We’re pretty into this personalized superhero cape from Pipe and Bean on Etsy – you can pick your fav color and stamp it with your own letter. But if you’re looking for something else, like a superhero cape for your dog, just search “superhero cape” on Etsy and you’ll come up with plenty of options.

Minor League Baseball Tickets

There’s no reason to drop big bucks on Major League Baseball tickets when you can check out minor league games for a fraction of the price. The kids will get a kick out of being able to say they saw players before they were famous. You’ll be glad you still have coins to jingle in your wallet at the end of the day. And everyone will learn an important lesson: that you don’t have to be the best-of-the-best to have fun and get moving.

A Pirate Fathom

Can you fathom the length of a fathom? Pirates need proper equipment before setting sail on the salty seas. This fathom is perfect for measuring things that are a fathom away, and that’s where the adventure usually begins. Where does the adventure end? No scallywag knows the answer to that question, so you best check out the rest of the 826 Valencia Pirate Supply Store to be prepared for anything.

Donation to KaBOOM!

Oftentimes the first step to becoming a superhero is having a playground where you can save the world. KaBOOM! is a charity working to make sure all kids in America have access to a neighborhood playground where they can safely play. They believe every kid deserves a place to play, and we agree. Make a donation to KaBOOM! to honor a superhero in your life and inspire a superhero somewhere else.

Pogo Sticks

The height of pogo stick popularity was the Roaring Twenties. As the old saying goes, if you can’t do the jitterbug, at least you can do the pogo. Guys, let’s bring back the glory days. Pogo stick jumping is a wacky and heart-thumping way to get moving, plus it’s way off the mainstream which makes it totally awesome.

A Red Ball

Just a ball? Yes, just a ball. Or a football, basketball, baseball or Frisbee – you name it. Sometimes the most fun comes in the simplest package. There’s no need to go crazy with expensive games or antiquated phenomena like the pogo stick. So keep it simple. A classic red ball will never grow old.

Space Traveler Diversion System

The galaxy is a wild and undiscovered place. Who knows what types of aliens and mysterious creatures your young astronaut will encounter when they adventure to infinity and beyond? That’s why it’s important to be prepared with a Cherry-Scented Diversion Deployment System. This nifty safety device shoots cherry-scented smoke rings at your enemies. For other space traveler’s essentials, check the equipment list of the Greenwood Space Travel Supply Co.

Donation to the Special Olympics

Everyone should have access to sports – no matter their ability. The Special Olympics is a nonprofit organization that provides sports training and competition to children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Through sports, the Special Olympics raises awareness about the abilities of people with disabilities. Donating to the Special Olympics in honor of a young athlete in your family is a great way to foster awareness and acceptance of differences.

Zamzee

There’s the new game that’s all the rage called Zamzee. “What’s that?” you say. “Why it’s a game that gets kids moving,” we reply. Yep, that’s right. Zamee makes physical activity a whole lotta fun. Kids wear their Zamzee meter and use zamzee.com to track their activity, take challenges and earn rewards for movement. It’s a game worthy of any sporty kid and all superheroes, and a total zinger to get your family moving.
