Unique Gift Ideas for Kids

When I buy gifts for kids, I like to find toys that are not available in just any department store.   The toys that mom and dad or grandma and grandpa don't have easy access too!

The gifts I recommend here are from stores that I have an affiliate relationship with.  If you choose to order from these stores through my website, it doesn't cost you any extra and provides me with a small commission that allows me to keep DaycareAnswers online.

Toys from Constructive Playthings

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE buying toys from this company.

Seriously! I not only buy these toys for the kids as gifts, but I have a lot of them in my own daycare's playroom.  These toys keep the kids entertained for hours!

Dog Academy Playset

Puppies, puppies, puppies. I don't know a kid who doesn't love puppies. This set includes all the items needed for a dog training academy and provides hours and hours of imagination play.

Rescue Vehicle Set with 5 Figures

Rescue Vehicle Set with 5 figures 
These rescue sets are compatible with Duplo blocks. The blocks are easy to find in any store, but I've always found the vehicles to be hard to find. Rescue vehicles with Duplo blocks provides for many more hours of play time.
