Have you started your Christmas shopping for your children?

Christmas is a time when people get excited, especially children. And with Christmas just around the corner, your child probably has thoughts of receiving gifts and has already started making his or her wish list to Santa. Their lists consist of toys, clothes and the latest electronic gadgets they see on television. While shopping off their list, remember that it is important to sort out the list prior to actually buying and find out which gift ideas are the ones that they really want the most.

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. What am I going to get for my children that is on that list?
  2. How much should I budget?
  3. Where are the best places to shop?
  4. What types of toys should I buy?
  5. What kind of deals are out there?
  6. Is there toys good for both boys and girls?

Quality

One of the most frustrating things for me about this time of year as a parent is guessing which toys my kids will “dig” and which ones won’t be worth the packaging they came in.  My boys are influenced by television and friends – seeing toys and products that they just HAVE to have (I’m sure you’ve heard the whining yourself at some point).  With holiday budgets being cinched and the need to keep the charge cards down, I am very wary of any purchase I make for my boys for the holidays.  I am looking for quality merchandise, and not some flimsy product that will break within the first day of use.

I can always be assured, though, that products I choose from WonderBrains have gone through a careful check for quality of their products.  Each toy and item is described in detail and categorized according to Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences, insuring myself, as a consumer, that I am purchasing something that my child loves and enjoys.  There are too many products to count on here that have won awards or been recognized for outstanding quality and craftsmanship.  I know that what I purchase to come into my home will be something my boys will enjoy and use for a good, long while.

Put your mind at ease and shop a bit this week around the store.  There is something for every child, of all ages, at WonderBrains!
