With the Christmas and giving season around the corner, may parents, grandparents and kid-friendly people are starting to look for gift giving ideas. It seems as though the ‘common’ thing to do is give money to kids so that they can purchase a gift that they’d like to have.
We can all take the ‘easy way out’ and buy gift cards, give money, or simply take a kiddo out and buy them what they want- but what happens Christmas morning when there aren’t any gifts to open- especially if the kids in question are young?
This list should help give ideas on what’s ‘in’ for kids, and what your special youngster may like to receive as a gift.
1) ‘Hatchimals Eggs’
are really cool and have been a favorite all year. They are eggs that kids take care of and they hatch with a surprise animal inside of them. These are a big hit with younger boys and girls alike- both because of the element of surprise and then for the surprise animal that they can foster and take care of. These eggs run about $60.00 and they are a great gift for younger children.

2) SELFIE Mic Music-Set in Black & Gold–
This is the ultimate gift for the kid who loves to sing and things that his/her singing is the best thing since peanut butter- as you can record and watch yourself sing. It may need to be turned down later in the evening but this is an awesome way for kids to have a lot of good clean fun, and it will take up all kinds of time and attention. Singing isn’t the worst thing a kid can do!
3) The Pie Face Game by Hasbro
Clearly created to taunt parents everywhere into wanting to curse Hasbro, the Pie Face Game is a riot! Who doesn’t want to see their friends get a pie in the face? To be honest, who doesn’t want to get a pie in the face?? This is genius!
4) Franklin Throw-Down Base Set
Who doesn’t want a beautiful real base set when you are out to play a pick up game of softball or baseball with your buddies? ‘Throwing like a girl’ is a complement these days. This is a perfect gift for a young baseball lover!
5) Guitar Hero Live For Xbox 360
Guitar hero truly is a great game to play for the entire family. There are several different music choices and it’s really a fun thing to see who can keep up and play! You can have tournaments and play-offs, and competitions, or just practice on your own. Kids who enjoy Guitar Hero can also develop their proclivity to music. It’s a great interactive game that promotes hand/eye coordination as well as music appreciation! You can get Guitar Hero at any video game chain store, or online anywhere!
Have fun this season and think outside the box! There are so many interactive toys that can lead children to appreciate different things that life has to offer! Wishing everyone a wonderful gift giving season- may all of your dreams come true!
