As we keep an eye on the economy, we found new toys for $5 and under. Toy expert Wendy Smolen joined us with some ideas. Sky Ball by Maui: This baseball-sized translucent orb is filled with helium and oxygen, enabling it to bounce up to 75 feet high. Literally, the sky's the limit to the fun. $4.99

Sidewalk Crayons by Crayola: Get brighter colors and more coverage than chalk. But just as much fun and great for summer. $4.99

Hog Wild Balloon Bags: are 7-feet long bags of laughs. Sturdier than balloons, but blown up the same way (about 5 to 9 puffs should get them firm), these buoyant sausages can be hurled, tossed, or sailed through the air for solo or team play. They come in packs of three. $4.95

Snapily: This new service allows parents and kids to create 3D and moving cards, notebooks, scrapbooks and more with their personal photos. I got one for Mother's Day today from my kids! Prices start at just $3

Only Hearts Club Pets: Kids are collecting these tiny plush pets and keeping them everywhere, on their backpacks, keychains and desks. At $2.99 each, they fit any budget.
