The birthday wish list of children can be quite a hefty scroll of parchment and it can change
with every TV advertisement that the child sees, so how do you know what gifts for kids will stand
the test of time? This article objectively reviews three unique gifts for kids from three separate
Learning to ride the bike is a monumental milestone in not only kids
lives but those of the parents. It ranks up there with tying shoelaces and the first day of school,
so a present that not only encourages them to ride, but makes them look good while they do it is
surely ideal. At 75GBP the Early Rider Lite bike is not within all budgets. It is a pedal-less bike
on a wooden frame that weighs just 3.25kg, with pneumatic tyres and a faux leather seat. It looks
like the bikes that P-Diddy buys for his children and is a great way to get 2year olds started on
their bike journeys.
When buying gifts for kids it is a bonus if you can get
something out of it as well. One way of being the envy of all the soccer parents is to roll up in
the Phil and Ted Sport Buggy. It is a great additional present that makes your life easier and
provides comfort for the child. At 400GBP it is not for the terminally short of cash and the
handling of the three-wheeler is not all that but it looks great and there is an additional
compartment that can be attached to hold a younger child. This fitting does leave the child a bit
close to the pavement though and it is very expensive.
If you think your child is
more of the next Einstein as opposed to the next Chris Hoy then perhaps something more cerebrally
stimulating is more in order. The Leap Frog Bilingual LeapStart Learning
Table is a classic
and at 30GBP is cost effective. It is musical and colourful however is very annoying for adults but5
it does have an off-switch. The real gimmick behind this classic is that it encourages the child to
learn French, so is ideal for ultra-pushy parents as a secondary gift.
There is a
massive range of gifts for kids and half of the battle is finding the balance between gifts that
will aid their development and the gifts they really want. Sometimes it is better to start with
small learning aid gifts and judge the way the child interacts with it, as opposed to spending
massive amounts on one learning aid toy and the child will spend the day playing with the box.
