How to Select Toys as Gifts for Kids

Post by karven » Tue Feb 18, 2014 1:10 am

Selecting an appropriate and thoughtful toy will bring your children an excited feeling. Don’t you think so? Let’s see which toys can be perfect gifts for children.


1. Take Kids’ Hobbies and Interests into Account

Generally speaking, little children are consumed with curiosities. They are interested in almost everything. In addition, they have a wide range of hobbies. No matter a game, a movie or a cartoon, they all show their interest and curiosity in them. If they fall in love with a figure in the game, movie or cartoon, they may want to make it your own. However, you cannot find a real figure for them. You’d better look for a similar toy for them. Games, movies, cartoons and toys play a significant role in children’s lives. They will accompany kids to spend a happy childhood. Therefore, when you want to select a toy for your kids, you’d better choose a toy related to kids’ favorite games, cartoons or movies because such toys make the best of both worlds.


2. Take Toys’ Practicability into Account

Have you ever thought about which toy is practical for kids? Since it is winter now, what should you buy for your kids if he or she wants a toy? In my opinion, plush toys can be the best option. Not only do plush toys have comfortable touch, but also most of them are designed with lovely and vivid appearance. There is no doubt that they will let kids feel joyful. In addition to some common stuffed dolls, the plush U-shape pillow or cushion can also be an ideal gift. No matter you are at home or go for a vocation, they will make effect not only for kids but also for you.


By the way, the I smell of dead, rotting fish.

This is the most on-topic and sensible spam I've ever seen. It's even in the right forum!

Yeah, that's fairly amazing. I'm almost tempted to say leave it open

I just figure out what they're into and buy a relevant item as a gift.

I remember when my nephew wanted a Lego Duplo combine harvester for his birthday and my mother scoured high and low for one and was ready to call it quits when I was like "no, we will get this kid what he wants" - so I had her give me the money, scored one on ebay and got him his combine harvester.

As a kid, I rarely got what I asked for, so that kind of inspired me to not let him down.

No, it should be in other toys and games.

Apologies to Blackjack as I've edited his edit to completely remove the link as it seemed to still be leading to the site the spammer wanted even if not the exact page. See if you can spot my subtle change.

Not sure whether to delete this or not as it seems to amuse folks, maybe more to the actual right forum? Or merge it with Sades big thread about nothing and see if she notices?

I am a bad editor.

I initially wanted to delete the spam but saw the comments, hence editing in an attempt to 'disable' the spam. Wanted to ask the rest of the moderators but I kinda sorta forgot. Whoops

A hoping you'd deliberately edited in a completely different spam link into the post. The twist being that you were the ultimate spam bot all along, spending years slowly, carefully building up trust through regular normal seeming posting, culminating in becoming a mod just so the day could come where you'd slip some spam into a pre-existing spam post before walking away laughing like a ninja.

It is not yet time.

Silly fleshbags, this is merely a feint!

So is this sarcastic-sounding comment that is meant to catch you off-guard!

FTFY :p

Was that bottom line there edited in, or was the paid spammer/spambot actually trying to be funny?

You'd rather read what a spambot writes than what Dalek does?

Apparently so, if this thread and the "Thirty Greatest" thread are any indication.

Considering not paying attention to what the other mods are asking you is how you wound up married to Hound you'd have thought you'd have learnt your lesson.

If that's the case, it's the best decision I ever made! (cue "awww"s from the studio audience)

Seriously though, I skim-read pretty much everything nowadays. I'm not singling out your posts or anything, I swear.

I take it baaaack.

On the off-chance this is a real post, depending on age I'd go with anything that is soft with no removable parts and is too big for them to choke on.

Why not? That's the toy I wanted most as a child. Everybody wanted one back then. People lined up outside stores for hours just for a chance at getting one.
