How to Pick the Right Gifts for Children: A Quick Guide

As a doting parent, you might want to gift the world to your children. And why not, they are the apple of your eyes in the true sense. However, in reality, you should think multiple times and consider a lot of factors before buying the ideal gifts for them. With platforms like Dynacart, you have a lot of options ranging from the kid’s fashion accessories to play items. So, before you are spoilt for choice, here’s a quick guide to buying the right gifts for children.

  1. Expensive Gifts are Not Always Necessary

An online toy store like Dynacart can tempt you to grab multiple toys for your kids but you should avoid really expensive ones. However, kids may not fully understand the value of these toys, and may crave for bigger, better and more expensive things every year. Instead, teach them to treasure every single toy they receive, regardless how much they cost. Keep in mind that some of the best toys are not necessarily the most expensive ones. Therefore, the parent shouldn’t spend a small fortune on the toy, only to watch the child discard the “must-have” after five minutes of play. Simple and high-quality engaging toys that truly celebrate the power of learning through play are ideal. In addition, their expectations are also essential. If you always give expensive gifts, they come to expect that, and will be dissatisfied with anything less.

  1. Choose Age Appropriate Toys

Children enjoy toys they can master and which are right for their particular stage of development. Here are some suggestions of kid’s items for the types of toys kids benefit from most, as they go through different stages:

  • 0-6 months – Rattles, brightly colored toys attached to the crib that rotate above the baby as soft lullaby music plays, or interactive play rugs are some of the best baby gifts.
  • 6-12 months – Brightly illustrated books made of cloth or stiff, floating toys for the bath tub, small train, toy cars for boys. Soft dolls, or stuffed toys are good baby girl gifts.
  • 1-2 years – Push/pull toys, blocks, ball, sandbox toys, puzzles, musical instruments, illustrated books, kitchen sets etc.
  • 2-3 years – Chalk, ball, large Legos or wooden blocks, puzzles, tricycle, books, kitchen play sets and other housekeeping toys, xylophone etc.
  • 3-5 years – Books, crayons, coloring books, play dough, bike, drawing and painting sets, or board games.
  1. Emphasize the Most on Safety

If your child is at the stage of putting everything in mouth, the toys must not contain small parts that are a choking hazard. Smaller parts like eyes and buttons must be firmly attached to the toy. When a toy is attached to a string, the free length of the string should be shorter than 300 mm, so that the string is not a strangulation hazard. Check for sharp edges or points that could injure your child. In addition, toys should be made of sturdy nontoxic materials that will not break easily. The filling of stuffed toys should be clean and free of objects or substances that may be harmful to a child. The safest toys are those made of natural materials, such as increasingly popular wooden toys, especially suitable for smaller children.

Keeping these factors and baby gift ideas in mind, visit Dynacart and get ready to surprise your little one.
