Christmas is best when celebrated with a young child since they are so full of wonder and they are excited about the holiday. Children deserve a nice safe gift for Christmas so if you are buying a present for a young child here are some ideas to help you.
The gift does not need to be expensive to be good so if money is tight, don’t feel you need to buy an expensive gift. Some old classic gifts are inexpensive and fun for young children like a yoyo, some clay or a top. These simple gifts can be purchased at most department stores that carry toys and they can cost as little as two or three dollars. Most young children can enjoy these old toys since they have probably never had one yet.
If you are buying a toy for a boy you can get them Star Wars action figures. Young and old like the Star Wars action figures and you can find one in your price range since they can be from $3.00 on up.
A great toy for both a boy or a girl is Creepy Crawlers. They have been around for a long time and over time it has evolved to be safe and still fun. The mega set has all you need to make bugs, spiders, worms and beetles and you can get it for less then $50. You can also choose the Creepy Crawlers Creation Station that costs about $30.
The FurReal Butterscotch Pony is a fuzzy pony that is large enough for a small child to sit on and pretend they are riding. A child can have a great time pretending they are a cowboy or a horse racing jockey. This is a sturdy toy that can handle being sat upon. Wish they had them when I was a small child. They cost about $300 and I think they will be a hot item.
If your child has been begging for a puppy and you are not ready for one then you can get them a toy puppy for Christmas. It is not the same thing as a real puppy but you don’t have to feed it or take it for walks. You can get a very nice stuffed puppy dog that your child can cuddle and care for just about anywhere stuffed animals are sold. Or you can get the FurReal Friends My Lovin’ Pup Biscuit. This pup runs around $180 but it can do voice commands like sit, lie down, shake and it looks very real. It comes with a brush so the child can groom the puppy and learn to care for a real puppy.
