It's holiday gift shopping time! Some of you are ecstatic about this and some are lost in the world of confusion as to what to get the little ones in your life. In a world of junky plastic toys that break easily and don't last long, it can be hard to find those quality gems that enhance creativity and are made with quality. Well, not that hard actually, since we have them all at Granola Babies. :) We literally have hundreds of holiday gift ideas. But, we know that sometimes it can be hard trying to narrow down to that perfect holiday gift.
Here's are some ideas that will help get you started. Come visit us for these and more.
Gifts for Ages 0 - 12 Months
For this age, we recommend motor skills enhancing toys such as our sorting toys, blocks for stacking and pounding toys, such as our 3-in-1 musical pounding toy. In addition, any of our many many teethers are fabulous for teething, as well as motor skills as the handle and move around their Granola Babies teethers.
Gifts for Ages 1 - 3 Years Old
This is such a fun age for riding toys, walking toys (ours have places for their children to put their toys in too!) and more stacking toys to stack and then push down (a perfect choice would be our sturdy cardboard stackers). We also really like to start introducing creative play at this age. Toys like our European lines are specifically made to further a child's creativity and ability to "think outside the box" with their toys and find multiple ways to play with the same toy. In addition, many children this age also like having their own "baby", which we recommend our soft dolls and cuddly stuffed animals for this very reason.
Gifts for Ages 3 - 6 Years Old
Granola Babies offers toys for up to age 6 years old, though my 9 and 11 year old children still find toys they want when they visit Granola Babies. In this age group, children love the open-play, creative houses that can be built any way their hearts desire. Pretend play is key during this age and having our tea sets, kitchen ware and pots, dress up clothing, as well as more of our European creative play toys can mean hours and hours of quality playtime. In addition, blocks are still a classic during this age and made even more interesting with our magnetic blocks. For many years, my children enjoyed playing as well with their wooden animal toys, which were passed own from child to child and many are now over 10 years old. All of these and more available at Granola Babies.
There are so many more options at Granola Babies, but these recommendations should get you started into lovely holiday shopping or any time shopping. We believe in quality over quantity, beauty in toys as well as creative toys that grow with the children.
Happy shopping and enjoy!
