Perfect Holiday Gift Ideas for Kids!
The holidays are approaching quickly! I tell myself every year that I am going to have my Christmas shopping done by December, but I never do! I am always doing last-minute shopping.
I also find myself getting overwhelmed with finding that perfect gift for my loved ones. Kids especially, are hard to shop for. Trends come and go, and kids are often not interested in anything besides video games these days.
I have compiled a few gift ideas below of toys that I know a child will enjoy and actually play with, rather than toss it aside after one use.
WHAM-O- The original creator of the Hula Hoop®, Slip N Slide, Frisbee®, and more, is launching an online shop this winter...and it will be fully stocked with all our original childhood favorites. Check these out
- Snowboogie: Air Thunder Foam Sled, Animal Snow Tubes
- Arctic Force: Snow Bow, Monster Sling Shot
- Frisbee: Ultimate Frisbee, Frisbee Max Flight, Mini Frisbee Golf
I grew up with WHAM-O toys, and I have made many happy childhood memories using my slip-n-slide as well as my hula hoop. I am getting my son, Braxton the Air Thunder Foam Sled for Christmas this year because I have heard we are getting a lot of snow. Plus, we have the greatest sledding hills in our backyard!
