The holidays are fast approaching, so before you have a complete loss of credibility with your kids it’s good to take the time and figure out what they really want. Shopping for children between the around the toddler stage seems to be what’s throwing parents for a loop these days. With questions like, “are choking hazards a concern?” or “will my child really play with this?” parents are stumped. Luckily, I have come up with a few gift-giving ideas that will be sure to make you the playground hero of the 2013 holiday season for 18 months to 10 year olds.
· Mooshka Dolls ( Age 2 and up)
Paper dolls are back, with a new face and a new style. They no longer need to be cut out and are now in a fully three dimensional state. Not only do they have the capacity to entertain for hours in imagination but are also capable of singing classic songs just by squeezing their hands.
· Little Tikes Big Car Carrier (pre-school )
Not only does this gift have two sports cars but it also includes a commercial truck to transport them. Toy cars are a never ending fad for young boys and even some girls, so you can’t go wrong with this purchase.
· Bratzillaz House of Witchez ( Age 3 and up)
A new spin to the already famous dolls, Bratzillaz House of Witchez collection sparks excitement in those who already have a dash of magic about them. There are an enormous collection of different figures to choose from and they all have a wealth of accessories to go with as well.
· Little Tikes Cozy Pumper ( Preschooler)
Already have a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe, Cozy Truck, Cozy Cab or Princess Coupe? If so, then this Cozy Pumper is the perfect addition to your garage! They will have to get used to pumping gas one day and what better time to practice than now. Just keep in mind that you will have to include the credit card for the pump swipes!
The holidays can be a stressful time so it is better to do a bit of smart shopping to avoid any unnecessary problems. Here are a few suggestions on the most effective way to shop and how to do it with your budget in mind.
