Holiday Gift Guide '09: Kids

This year for Natalie and Kara I am trying my best to be mindful about what I buy them and am choosing items that will hopefully hold their attention for more than just a few seconds at a time. Here are a few that I think would make great gifts for the little ones in your life:



1. Life On Earth Matching Game, Blue Ribbon General Store, $15
Beautiful illustrations make this a memory game worth remembering!

2. Augusta Dollhouse with dolls and furniture, Pottery Barn Kids, $59
I just love this sweet little wood dollhouse. It closes up and has handles making it easy to transport from one place to another.

3. Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood Wooden Blocks, $49.95 and Wooden Trolley, $60, Craftsbury Kids.
I loved Mr. Rogers when I was little! What a great nod to the "simpler" days of children's tv shows, before that dreadful Spongebob came along.

4. Play Dough Kit, Land of Nod, $29
I would say most toddlers are obsessed with play dough. I like that this kit is made out of wood and not plastic.

5. Make Your Own Jewelry Kit, Land of Nod, $24.95
Fun for mommy too!

6. Fingerprinting Art Set, Kate's Paperie, $12
Stamping is another big draw with kids. This fingerprint stamp set is sure to keep little hands busy for awhile!

  3. It is so hard! I have the same problem, I want something that is smart and useful and would keep them interested for a long time. My sons want nothing else, but transformers, star wars and lego. I cannot dissappoint them with something that is more for me than for them... I lvoe the wooden blocks!
