Do you have a child that you are looking to give a gift to and are not sure what would be appropriate? The best kids gifts are often ones that will help them in developing skills while in the guise of having fun with a toy. They may not realize that the toy is educational which is just as well. It is sort of like trying to get them to eat something and telling them that it is good for them. They don't want any part of it then.
Finding toys that are part of a line that features characters from their favorite television show or movie is always a good idea. There is no shortage of options when it comes to toys with popular characters. Knowing which one is going to be the most appealing to the child we want to give a gift to, might be a tad confusing. If in doubt, ask the Mother or Father. They will be able to tell you who the "hot" personality is at home these days.
