Before every birthday party my kids are invited to, I have the same conversation with myself before buying a present.
I take a mental stock of the pile of toys we have at home that the kids never use and I vow not to contribute to that pile in anyone else’s home. No one has the space or the desire for unnecessary clutter, and toys that aren’t used? Definitely fall into the unnecessary clutter basket.
The truth is, all toys are not created equal. Most toys will capture the attention of a child initially, but few can hold it. Those that do are worth their weight in gold.
So before you embark on any Christmas shopping for the kids in your life this year – your own, your nieces or nephews or your grandchildren – bookmark this list.
These eight toys, currently available at the Toys”R”Us Christmas Dreams sale, are guaranteed to provide entertainment and fun, well beyond Christmas morning.
Thinking about buying a child a pet? Unless you’re the parent, think again. Leave that to the family to choose. But if you have an animal-lover on your hands, Zoomer Kitty is a perfect alternative. She’s a sweet interactive Kitty who loves to play, pounce and purr. She has touch sensors in her head, ears, and cheeks and loves being cared for like a real kitten.
Castle Barnyard Bouncer.
This isn’t a small gift by any means, but it will be loved. And only takes a minute to blow up with the included pump. A bouncing castle of their very own is a dream come true for animal loving kids. It’s decorated inside and out with farm animals, offers two slides, a ball pit complete with 50 balls, basketball hoop and bouncing area. This will keep your kids happy and hopping for hours. And it will be perfect for birthday parties, barbeques and lazy afternoons at home.
