Children are not always as easy to buy gifts for as you might think. Many people think that you can just buy a child, anything you like because they’re a child and you believe that toys are toys and it doesn’t really matter. In many cases this is true, but it does help to know what the child is into before you rush off and get them something they’ve already got, or something that is likely to embarrass them in front of their friends; these days it doesn’t seem to matter how old they are, they can get embarrassed by anything at any time!
Character toys are always an option if you know what the child is into. If you do know then it’s still a good idea to ask the parents what they already have; there is nothing worse than being a child and someone buying you something you already had. The only other option would be to try and introduce them to another character or type of toy, but this is quite a gamble, especially if you don’t know them as well as you could.
Beware of parents
There are parents out there that are very particular what you buy for their children, and this is another good reason why you should run anything past them before you actually do it. You may get some parents who don’t like weapon toys like swords or guns for example, or some that have a particular problem with balls, or those who are very non specific when it comes to gendering their child by buying them toys that are traditionally for boys or girls.
There is another option when it comes to buying toys and that is to get them educational toys. Educational toys will always go down well with parents and children alike and many of them don’t really appear to be that educational.
For example, roleplay toys are actually very good educational toys, it’s just that they don’t appear to be so to the child in the same way as they will to you. Roleplay is an excellent way to buy educational toys for children.
Another good example would be any to do with arts and craft. These type are very educational toys and extremely creative and fun too. You can buy good arts and craft materials if you want to from a store, but many parents keep a whole host of things that their children can make things out of. You might want to consider buying paints, brushes and other implements connected with crafts.
No matter what style of educational toys you buy a child, they are sure to appreciate it (depending on their age of course) and their parents will almost certainly appreciate the effort you’ve taken to find something appropriate.
