    The MUST HAVE Beach Toy of 2018

    With summertime in full swing and the Fourth of July right around the corner, it's the perfect time to find beach toys to entertain your kids!

    This year, be sure to pack the newest fad in beach fun from Toyosity… THE SURFER DUDE. The world’s very first self-riding beach toy!

    Sit back, relax, and know your child is safely playing with the super cool Surfer Dude! WE LOVE this beach toy because it is ideal for shallow water play and entertains for hours!

    Splish Splash Summer!

    Hot temperatures and muggy humidity are the norm for Charleston in the summer, and even us locals sometimes find it hard to get relief. Taking a dip in the cool, blue water of a swimming pool is a surefire way to beat the heat! And this summer, there are some fabulous new pool toys for all ages, from toddlers to adults, to make pool time even more fun!

    We all want our kids to get out and play, but when it's hot outside, finding an outdoor activity can be a real challenge.

    Not only is swimming and splashing in the water fun, it's also great exercise for all ages! Creating and playing games in the pool is an easy way to incorporate fitness while building underwater skills. Kids love racing each other, or going on a treasure hunt for weighted toys that sink to the bottom!

    Brightly colored dive toys are perfect for this type

From bath squirters, magnifying glasses, slime, and hair bands, to tentacle fingers, wallets, and more, you’re sure find the perfect surprise gift from Toysmith!

    "Hey Dad, can I call you later?"

    "No, you can call me Dad."

    Roll your eyes all you want... you know you love him.

    Father's Day is coming up, and in typical Dad fashion, he says he doesn't want anything special. But he IS special, and you want to make at least half the fuss over him that you made for Mom a month ago.
