Looking to engage your children for upcoming holidays? Thinking of finding the ideal gifts for your sons and daughters? So, what is it that your children are dying to have?
One of the biggest sellers is anything to do with Stars Wars! With the release of the final prequel on DVD, children are prepared to fight the dark side with lightsabers, action figures, and Darth Vadar voice changing masks. For boys and girls alike, this is a guaranteed pleaser.
Also making an appearance on our top lists this year are the dolls and accessories from the movie, “Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus”. Mattel Entertainment always manages to perfectly time the release of their Barbie series movies every year to play in perfectly with the holiday season. This year has been no different. Little girls everywhere will be waking up to Princess Annika and her flying horse.
For younger children, Fisher-Price’s Tumble Time Tigger is a must for this holiday season. This loveable Winnie the Pooh character does cartwheels, stands on his head, and dances. He is also sound-activated, so he will keep going with your child’s laughter and clapping.
Handmade, customized or uniquely designed toys not sold in big stores are gaining popularity and followers! And these toys are hard to find and get since they are not mass produced. One of my favorite is this building toy that is perfect for teens, even adults! Yes! Even adults love these toys, which remind them of how children see the magic because they simply look for it.
Aquadoodle is another ingenious gift idea by Spinmasters. This is a large pad that allows children to draw with a “magic” pen filled with water, which disappears in a short time. Therefore, there is no mess to clean up and this pen will not end up decorating your walls.
VTech V.Smile TV Learning System is an answer to the video game craze, but is targeted more toward education. These games teach children from ages 3-7 math skills, English, reasoning, and science and plug directly into your television for convenience.
The various LeapFrog Learning products are also an option for making learning fun. With several choices to focus on different age levels and information categories, you can find exactly what will be most beneficial for your child. You can choose laptops, reading systems, or math games to give the gift of knowledge this holiday season.
