Our last one of that kind was trampoline. My daughter wanted trampoline for months, she talked about it every day, she wrote letter to Santa … she would dream about jumping on a trampoline and never stopped talking about it. So we got  indoor trampoline as a Christmas gift and assembled it in our living room. Great thing we thought, she will spend long winter in a house and have at least something to burst energy.

How wrong could we be.

First day she jumped few times, second day just two times… but she loved it so much she had a few naps inside, instead of jumping. And after two weeks poor thing was sitting abandoned while my girl didn’t showing any interest in it.

That made me to think twice before I purchase a new toy. I’m cautious when picking toys gifts for kids, not just mine, but our family and friends. If I’m purchasing a gift for someone, the last thing I want that toy I gave is not serving it’s purpose. Wouldn’t you agree?

When choosing toys for kids I always consider few things:

  • will it encourage creativity
  • will it provide open ended play
  • will it help develop motor skills or any other life learning skills
  • can my child learn something from it
  • is it durable and quality made
  • is it made of non toxic materials

Here is a great list of creative kids craft sets that will you kids play with and some of cool choices when it comes to purchasing a new learning toy.
