Getting presents for the kids was always my wife’s job. It’s not that I don’t like it, she is just better at it. Well, I watched television with my kids this entire weekend and learned something that will benefit you all (actually just those looking to buy presents for kids). Gifting is easy when you pay attention.
This is a bean plush toy for kids ages 3 and up. It is around 8″ tall and although it cannot really stand on its own, it can sit and lie very well. The build quality is excellent and it’s quite soft to touch. The thing about this toy is that kids simply adore it. And there is a simple reason behind it
There is a Disney show called The Lion Guard. I watched it through the entire weekend with my kids and to be quite frank, the show is good. It is one of the better programs for kids on television these days. There a couple of characters and each of them has its own toy. Now, I noticed that my kids love most of them, but as soon as Ono showed up on the screen (or rather I should not say as soon but EVERY time) my kids were quite excited and cheerful. And from what I hear, this show is really popular all over the world. If you don’t believe it, check out the average rating for this toy and read a couple of comments.
Yesterday, I thought of an idea to buy an entire set of The Lion Guard toys and give them out to my kids by Christmas as a reward for doing the chores like making the bed and cleaning out their room. The amazing thing about these toys is that in a show, each of them has a special ability. Ono, for example, has high-level intellect. So, I will challenge my kids to finish up their homework (not all of them go to school, but all of them got homework) and reward them with this toy. That way, I can teach them valuable lessons and they will have no trouble accepting it. And if it all goes well, I’ll proceed as planned.
For a simple toy (ok there is the show as well), I’d say that it is quite an effective gift. When you got kids, you learn something every day and that’s the real beauty of it.
