For me, a bottle of perfume!! Just kidding. :) Some of you know that's my new favorite thing, but I didn't buy any new fragrances, lol. I just said that in case my kids are reading to get a laugh.
I did however, get these sweet tossing rings (we love Disney!) for my newest grandbabe, a Smarty Flutter for my third-oldest grandbabe, a Creatto set for my oldest granddaughter and Playmobil building kits for all around!! Most littles (and even the bigger kids) love those building kits and for good reason.
1). The Green Toys Disney Baby Exclusive Mickey Mouse Stacker is made from 100% recycled plastic. It has no BPA, phthalates, or PVC. It is dishwasher safe with no external paints or coatings. This toy was carefully crafted with no interlocking pieces to pinch baby fingers, and no center piece to make the stacking easy for the smallest of littles. I also love that it's made with the bright colors children love. This would be cute in any baby room or play area. Of course, having Mickey as the topper only adds to the appeal. Mickey Mouse is a universal love (you can a pink/purple Minnie as well). Interested? You can purchase this on Amazon for a great price (and right now it's on sale for an even great price). Green Toys have been around for awhile now, their toys are all made in the USA.
2). The Creatto sets are so original and unique. I've truly never seen anything like them in the realm of toys. These kits are puzzles that you put together and when finished, they light up.
There are several models to choose from and my favorite is the elephant, though they're all pretty cute, including the lantern. I can imagine a few of those around the room lighting things up, which would delight any one of my granddaughters. Check out the website or Amazon to learn more about these very affordable kits (under $10).
3). The Smarty Flutter is a fun toy for the younger child in your life. It is an interactive toy that teaches colors (it magically names colors it lands on), shapes, numbers, directions, and emotional intelligence. The kids will like it even if it's not running, but they'll like it even more when it is (and you will too, this toy is irresistibly cute). It has over 150 activities and reactions programmed into it, meaning your kids won't get bored with it quickly. Another huge plus.
This would make an excellent gift idea for most any toddler/preschooler. It is recommended for ages 3-5. I love the unique aspect to it, the bright cheerful appearance of the toy, and the technology that makes it so very fun and interesting.
For the older kids, Playmobil is always a good idea! My oldest granddaughter is always so pleased to open a new kit and start building. Some of you might remember me talking about her building her Playmobil Volkswagen T1 Camping Bus. Everyone who sees that kit thinks it is absolutely adorable. These new kits are great too, and they take building to a whole new level.
