Just in time for the holidays, I was graciously given a $50 Kohl's Gift Card to share with my readers!
Kohl's has recently launched a new tool on their website to make shopping for toys easier. Check out this link to see how toys are grouped by age. Since I have many little ones to shop for, I thought I'd share my favs for each age group/gender that I'll be buying for.
Ahhh, the Sit'n Spin. I had one of these when I was little, and I know Richard has the chance to play with them at daycare. While he might not be able to fully master it yet, it's certainly something I'll put on his list. Since he just turned 1 and a half, this will be something he'll be able to play with for many years.
We pulled a name from the Angel Tree at Jon's work for a little boy the same age as Richard. The "wish" was for a wood puzzle. This one by Melissa & Doug is perfect! These puzzles are sturdy, classic, and are great hand me downs. I was lucky enough to get a ton of them from my Sister-in-Law now that my nieces are grown and Richard just loves them. It's so fun to see him learn his shapes!
My nephew, who also has a Christmas-time birthday, loves Legos and Angry Birds. This set will be perfect for him!
I have 3 nieces to buy for, and they all love doing crafty things. So one idea I have for them is Melissa & Doug's Fashion Design Activity Set. Or maybe it's just Aunt Heather reminiscing about playing with her Fashion Plates - remember those? My nostalgia made me do a quick search on eBay and man - those vintage sets go for a hefty price tag! I am inspired to look for my set in the basement but I am almost certain it's not there. Darn!
I just wanted to lastly add that if you are still stumped for a gift, you can't go wrong with these book and plush sets that Kohl's has year round. They change them several times a year, and Richard already owns many of them and I know he's going to get more for Christmas (like the set below - notice the peacock on the cover and there are lots more peacock graphics inside). At just $5 a pop, you can add many classic titles to your library and/or stories from popular authors. Even better, Kohl's donates 100% of the profits to support kids health and education initiatives in communities nationwide. Find out more about Kohl's Cares here.
