Kids born in April nailed it. They’re born when Spring is just starting to do its thing, comedy is in season, and PB&J gets celebrated. If that’s not enough, we’ve assembled a list of birthday gifts for these kiddos that will make just about everyone not born in April wish it was their birthday. From pogo sticks to creative kits, here’s what to get your April kid to make them feel special ... and by special we mean, the owner of all things awesome!

Just ten more minutes, okay?
