Christmas Gift Ideas For Kids

Christmas Gift Ideas For Kids!

The following is a gift guide to assist you in selecting Christmas gifts for children.

The first think you should consider is the age of the child. After considering age, consider the gender. While there are many gender neutral choices, there are also gifts that are targeted for one gender or the other. Next decide the type of gift you wish to give. Do you want to give a toy, a book, clothing, or perhaps a gift card? Knowing this information before hand will help make your Christmas gift shopping go smoothly.

Age Appropriate Gifts (Featured at Target)

Selecting an age appropriate children's gift will not only help ensure the child is interested in the gift, but it is also a safety concern. Manufacturers must follow certain guidelines and label new toys for specific age groups. Look for these labels when shopping for kids. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) monitors and regulates toys. All toys made in, or imported into, the US since 1995 must comply with these standards.

Infants and toddlers are always learning, so the toys and books are educational in nature.Choking is a risk for children ages 3 or younger, since they tend to put objects in their mouths. You need to always keep this in mind when selecting gifts for an infant or toddler.

The Smart Train is a great early educational toy. It has more than 50 songs, tunes and phrases. Five shape buttons introduce colors, numbers and more. Puppy's Train includes Smart Stages technology, a new way to change learning content as baby grows. Every baby develops at their own pace, and Smart Stages gives you the ability to select the stage that's best for that child.
