Great Gifts for Nephews, Nieces and Kids of All Ages

December 18, 2012

We are asked, “I have no idea what to buy for my one year old nephew, can you please recommend a good, reasonably priced gift?”

The one-year old’s we know best tell us that the toys they like the most are the most simple, straightforward and brightly colored toys.  From simple building blocks, to basic animal shape puzzles and simple geometric shapes most one-year olds are quick to show appreciation for almost any colorful toy you decide to give them as a gift.

A simple toy like the TAG Toys Geo Form Boards make a great stocking stuffer or a good basic gift for any one-year old boy or girl.  This toy helps very young kids develop physical motor skills and introduces the concept of matching and fitting shapes together.

Other simple puzzles like Animal Shape Puzzles or the TAG Toys First Building Blocks also make great gifts for one-year olds.

Make Holiday Personal with a Toy for a Toddler

November 7, 2012

We are asked,  “What should I give to a toddler for Christmas who already has tons of toys?”

For youngsters who seem to already have all the toys they can handle, consider giving them a toy that makes a personal connection, like a colorful puzzle that spells out their name.  The Personalized Name Puzzle from TAG Toys helps two-to-four year olds learn their name and provides a educational game that is initially challenging, and then becomes rewarding as they learn to fit the fun colorful wooden letters into the correct cut-out spaces.

Parents can spend time saying the names of the letters out loud with their children, which reinforces the sequence of letters that are use to spell out the child’s name.  Children who are encouraged to trace each letter with their finger learn hand-eye coordination and start to gain appreciation for the idea that they can ‘make’ letters by moving their arm, hand and fingers.  Children eventually out grow the simple puzzle, however the puzzle becomes and important nameplate and a timeless childhood keepsake whose sentimental value increases year after year.
