Every year I have difficulty deciding on Christmas gifts for Joey. When choosing gifts for children other than my own, the decision is even harder. With all of the options available today, it's difficult to anticipate which toys will be loved and which ones will gather dust.
To make things easier for all of us, the folks at Baby Cheapskate have polled hundreds parents and compiled a list of "Toys That Get Played With." I think that these lists are fabulous. I think that Joey would enjoy many of the toys suggested for her age group because she has loved so many of the toys on the lists. I also like that so many of the toys on the lists are not battery-operated and that they encourage children to use their imagination.
Toys That Get Played With: 6 to 12 Months
Toys That Get Played With: 13 to 24 Months
Toys That Get Played With: 25 to 36 Months
Toys That Get Played With: 3 to 4 Years
Toys That Get Played With: 4 to 5 Years
I hope that these lists will help you if you're having difficulty finding the perfect gift for a child.
