We all say we want healthy, active kids — time to put our money where our mouth is. Check out these sporty options to keep your kids on the go through the holiday break and beyond.
Enduracool Towel and Helmet Liner
In sunny SoCal, it doesn’t need to be summer to get steamy on the field or in the park. These hi-tech instant cooling towels and accessories (helmet liners and visors) are made of a performance fabric that cools to approximately 30 degrees below the average body temperature in under a minute. Soak, wring out and snap in the air to activate.

Asana, an AZIAM Yoga Girl
When these dolls strike a pose, your little one will bend over backwards to play with them. Specially jointed to accomplish classic yoga poses, an illustrated instruction card shows what the doll and owner can pull off together. And if your AZIAM doll is very responsible, perhaps she’ll get her very own pet puppy, Nama the Om Dawg…which says “Nama-STAY” when you squeeze its belly. (You can’t make this up.)
Whether for your little skateboarder, cyclist or just tempted to stick on your toddler as they navigate the world of sharp coffee table corners, these wild designs coupled with a 30% lighter design and Coolmax padding (not to mention the anti-pinch magnetic buckle) make any adventure a win. Optional visor even keeps that OC sun out of their eyes.
Twinkle Toes Shuffles Pixie Bunch
Keep your girliest girl glammed up on the court, with ankle support and some seriously sparkle to spare with these bejeweled, light up high-tops. Sugarplum fairy meets the WNBA…
Surf and Paddleboard Wetsox
Taking off and putting on wet surf gear as an adult is downright frustrating. For kids it can results in falls and wetsuit rips. This thin, split-toe sock (to wear with flip-flops) makes slipping in and out of a sticky, wet wetsuit a cinch and starts at size 5.
Frozen-themed HD Action Camera
Put away the camo-themed sporty tech, girls get in on the action with this 5.1 megapixel digital sports camcorder. The included bike mount, helmet mount, waterproof case and built-in microphone ensure every adventure is captured.
Rocket 5 by Schwinn
We all say we want our kids to be more active, but the most popular pizazz gift under the tree tends to be a game console. Wow them with this sturdy, quality-made bike with a Shimano Tourney 21-speed drivetrain and Shimano EZ Fire shifters that can handle the perfectly paved association streets, soft scrubby edge of a sandy beach or those rocky desert-environment off road trails with ease.
No more worries about biking to a friend’s or strolling home from late afternoon sports practice. This truly reflective windbreaker looks subtle in silvery grey and black, but is activated with just about any light source to impressively illuminate with an unavoidable glow to keep your too-cool-for-school kids visible on the street.
EASTON Power Sensor Motion By Blast for Android
The simple game of baseball gets seriously high tech with this cap that fits on the end of the bat and utilizes Bluetooth wireless technology to capture and store a wide-range of 3D data, including time to contact, swing speed, energy transfer, bat path, power, and overall efficiency. A perfect way to encourage reluctant kids to practice — they’ll be fighting over who is next up to bat.
Quick Fold Stroll ’N Trike
This grow-with-me tricycle not only keeps your little one rollin’ from nine months to five years — morphing from push trike to learn-to-ride to classic trike — but easily folds to store or toss in the trunk to head to the park.
