Have you ever felt stuck and uninspired when deciding what gift to get a child? Whether it be for a niece or nephew or even your own kids, it’s often hard to know what are good gifts.

Many of these gifts we have at our own house so I can vouch that they have been played with plenty. I have also reached out to other moms and asked what were the top gifts they received for their kids. Usually, you can tell if a toy is “successful” based on how many times a child goes back to play with it. A lot of the commercialized character toys are often short-lived. The gifts that allow for imagination and creativity often get the most play for the longest time.
