Wondering what to get a child for their birthday this year? This list of the top gifts that kids are clamouring for this year should help you out.
Scooter Are The Big Thing This Year
More and more kids are riding around on scooters everywhere you look. They have become the most popular toy amongst children of all ages, even teenagers are flying around on scooters.
Try a 3-wheel scooter for young kids. Micro Scooters have a massive choice of colours and styles to suit any child. They also have all the accessories you may need, like helmets and safety pads. A 3-wheel scooter is a perfect choice for any child as they do not need balance skills, the three wheels keep them upright while they scoot.
Lego Has Been A Top Tier Gift For Decades
This gift never falls out of favour and is always high on children’s Christmas and birthday wish lists. There is a massive range of Lego sets that can suit any budget and any child.
The Lego of today is the same toy it always was, but modern sets have a new twist. There are big-name sets like Harry Potter and Star Wars to choose from. Do you know a child that is obsessed with Hogwarts or the ways of the Jedi? Lego has got you covered.
Get Them Their Own Alexa Device
Amazon’s Alexa is incredibly popular with children. Like any new technology, the kids seem to master it quickly, and they can show their parents a thing or two when it comes to getting the most from a digital assistant. Getting them their own Alexa-enabled device is a great gift.
The small Amazon Echo Dot is a cheap and cheerful entry into the world of Alexa-enabled devices. They can be used to stream music, answer questions, and command other devices around the house.
A Raspberry Pi That Is Not To Be Eaten
Kids are getting into coding these days, and the next Elon Musk is sitting in their bedroom now tinkering with code and small computers. The Raspberry Pi is the pocket-sized single-board computer that kicked off this coding revolution and got kids into making their own games, devices, and computers.
These are incredibly cheap and can come in kits that help teach a child how to code computer programs and create a huge range of software and electronically commanded devices. They are also great for playing retro videogames, which may help explain their popularity too.
You Cannot Beat A Good Book
Reading is incredibly important for a child’s development, and there is an endless range of books to choose from for children of all ages.
If you are not sure which book to choose, do not worry. You can spruce up a gift card to stop it from feeling like a dull gift idea but taking a trip to a book shop and having a browse for some new books is an adventure that kids will remember.
One of the gifts on this list will be perfect for a child in your life this year. In fact, with all the options on this list, you should have your Christmas, birthday, and any other special gift sorted.
