OCEAN CITY, NJ (CBS) – So you’re headed down the shore this weekend, family in tow. Hitting the boardwalk? Of course. But what is the one item kids (and some adults) just gotta take home this year?

You’ve probably seen those invisible dog leashes and those two balls on a rope you bang together.

But this year’s big lure could be the Laughing Lion.

“It’s a furry lion and it rolls on the ground and belly laughs the whole time and people laugh and laugh and laugh.”

Imagine your kids running that on and on and on. Denise Callahan at Ocean Treasures can’t keep them in stock.

They also come in dog, rabbit and pink pig. She’s sold 50 dozen over the last year and isn’t expecting her next shipment until July. Want something a little more…quiet? There’s always a t-shirt. Sports teams are big again — even the Phillies…at least for now.
