Yeah. Nice shoes, by the way.
Anyway, for my Mini Me, I try to find gifts and toys that spark imagination or creativity, encourage her to do or make something, or just something that's downright fun or funny. I'm also trying to keep her away from video games as long as possible (although that's not going so well). And really, I just love the toys that I had when I was a kid, so I'm trying to give my own munchkin the same type of stuff that I enjoyed and remember with some fondness. So with those things in mind, I give you a holiday gift guide for kids between toddler and tween.
My first stop is always Playmobil. These are incredible toys, and there's pretty much a set for every budget and every interest. We even have a Playmobil hair salon, with removable wigs and hairdryers. Not. Even. Kidding. Some of the things they come up with are ingenious. I would love to get this wonderful hospital set for my Mini Me.
As much as I enjoy Spongebob Squarepants, they just don't make them like this anymore. Give them the gift of humor with the Muppet Show Season 2 DVD, featuring Don Knotts, Steve Martin, Julie Andrews, John Clese and Elton John. I mean, come on!
Four is about the age when they're ready to start playing board games besides Candyland and Chutes and Ladders. My favorites are a toss up between Hungry Hungry Hippos and Operation!
You know you want to bake a cake with a light bulb. That's some good eatin right there.
best books to teach your kids to read. I am not even fooling around with this.
Oh, this just brings back memories. It may be a little low brow for today's video game generation, but still awesome in my book.
And speaking of retro fabulous, how cool is this rainy day activity? Shrinky Dinks rock!
Finally, I absolutely love these Junk Food 2 in 1 tees with my favorite retro characters. Girly, but not skanky!
