Offering great comfort in a streamlined design and flashy colors, Asics Gel DS Trainer is the summer sneaker perfect for strutting. It's a high-performance running shoe with plenty of flex from heel to toe and a Wet Grip outsole for super traction on rainy days, $115 at Southern Runner.
This new twist on ring toss uses two sticks to launch a plastic ring through the air — and catch it again. Waterproof and sturdy, Ring Stix is the summer toy that will survive hours of outdoor fun, $20. There's also a larger, glow-in-the dark version, $35; both at The Magic Box.
For younger kids not ready for carving and grinding on a skateboard or a big kids' bicycle, there's the YBike Glider Deluxe Scooter with three wheels, brakes, a wide ribbed deck and a rubbery grip to build balance skills and stability in children as young as 2, $100 at The Magic Box.
