Holiday Gift Guide 2013: B. Teepee & Magnetic Alphabet
When it comes to Christmas gifts, I know my limitations. When it comes to finding gifts for people (outside of my kids who point at a TV or catalog and say “Ooh Mommy! I want That!”) I just can’t it causes me all sorts of stress and it makes me plum crazy!
So to help combat MY crazy, I have decided to help everyone by sharing some super unique gifts for the different people in your life, because well thought out gifts are SO much better than a gift card!!
B. Toys sent me some fun a unique gifts to review and these gifts would be perfect for the kids on your list!
B. TeePee - 3 to 8 years
$39.99 at Target
My boys are always going into corners of the house, playing with cars or on their mini learning devices. So getting them a teepee, aka an enclosed tent for them to “hide” was a no brainer.
They were SO excited when they saw their new fortress, there was an unlimited amount of squealing and hugs for mommy. They both ran in immediately and turned on the lights hanging from the top of the teepee.
This is an awesome gift for kids, and you can totally use it as a double (or triple) gift for folks with more than one child! Easy.
Magnetic Alphabet – 18 months to 5 years
$18.99 at Barnes & Noble
This gift is geared towards the baby/toddler years. I have a lot of alphabet type toys in my house. Usually those letters end up at the bottom of the toy pile somewhere scattered and never in any kind of order.
The magnetic alphabet is cool because all of the pieces stick to the board which makes it less likely (although still very possible) for pieces to be stuck at the bottom of a toy pile.
And as you can see the baby went right to town as soon as he got it!
This is an awesome (and super educational) gift for the babies in your life. There are matching objects for each letter like “Z” for Zebra and “A” for Apple. Which of course the baby was so happy to show me. “mom-meeee! App-poh!”
