top 10 gift for kids

My Top 10 Gifts for Kids. As the parent of 2 older kids, I rue the money I've spent on gifts that don't get played with, or were predominately a waste of money. Here are my top 10 gifts for kids that will undeniably be a hit or have a great play factor, for many more years of Happy Birthday!

10. OK to Wake! Children's Alarm Clock and Nightlight

The OK to Wake! Children's Alarm Clock and Nightlight glows a soft yellow in the evening and turns green in the morning at the time parent's specify. This ingenious product is a life-saver for sleep-deprived parents for whom every extra moment of sleep is a luxury. The handy "Nap Timer" allows parents to put kids down for a nap without disrupting other settings. For older kids who want to get up "on their own", OK to Wake is also an alarm clock with Snooze function - just like mom and dad's.

9. Two (or 3) Wheels

At number 9 in my top 10 gifts for kids guide. Bikes make great gifts, keep them away from the pc screen and TV and are great exercise. Check out the Strider PREbike Balance Running Bike The Strider is a neat new way to learn how to ride a bike, teaching your child co-ordination and balance and preparing for the pedeling later!

8. Magic set,

If your kids love magic, you can't go very wrong with a Melissa & Doug Deluxe Magic Set.

These easy-to-learn tricks are the same ones used by professional magicians: disappearing objects; multiplying coins; magic boxes; prediction tricks; a secret change bag and more. And the wooden storage chest magically transforms into a performance table¿with a secret compartment!

For a more gruesome experience you should gift the Marvins Magic Freaky Body Illusions.

7. Games Console or Games

From Xbox to Playstation. PS3 to Wii. The PS Light, slim, diet. No doubt this website will need updating almost weekly to keep up with the never ending influx of electronic media. Most kids will covert their mates, and the latest game releases. We give them what they want and then complain they spend all their time sat in front of it! Whatever keeps them happy...always in the top 10 ten gifts for kids.
