Creative Christmas Gifts for Kids and Grandkids

April 7, 2011

Unique toys and gifts children and grandchildren will love!

Whether you are shopping for your own children, your nieces or nephews, or grandchildren, keep in mind that the most practical Christmas gifts should entertain and educate far into the future. Although it might seem like just plain fun for kids, but play time is also important for developing lifelong skills such as sharing, problem solving, and teamwork. When you recall your own early years and the memorable gifts your enjoyed, think of the lasting enjoyment brought not only for you, but for others in your life. Gift giving is especially enjoyable when you can be confident the item will be a hit!

Below, we’ve put together a list of our most creative and unique gifts for kids found on firstSTREET online. Specifically, they were selected for their value, quality, and practicality – not the over-promoted, low-value junk you see in most toy stores or websites.

Jumbo Plush Animals

Around Christmas, retail stores can quickly turn into a zoo!  So relax at home while shopping for online christmas gifts, and then create your own Plush Animal zoo for  your kids on Christmas morning! There is a lion, striped tiger, giraffe, panda or teddy bear. All of the animals are highly detailed and carefully constructed to endure the toughest play times for years to come.

Jumbo Plush Animals

Kids love oversized animals; the striped tiger and the lion measure five feet from nose to paw, the giraffe is more than four feet tall, and the plush panda and teddy bears are over two feet!  These animals make a perfect gift for kids in your life, as well as a safe and practical accessory for your children’s playroom.

Jumbo Floor Puzzles

For truly big fun, our Jumbo Floor Puzzles are the perfect activity for children. From our experience, children will play for hours, over and over again with these entertaining, challenging, and satisfying puzzles. The pieces are specifically designed to be used on the floor- where kids love to be! Large in size and substantially thicker than regular puzzle pieces, they are easy for little fingers to handle and very hard for them to lose. Additionally, the puzzles are specially coated so you won’t have to worry about sticky fingers or spilled messes ruining the pieces – they’ll wipe clean easily time after time. All the puzzles are very colorful and a lot of fun to assemble. There’s a wide selection of scenes and themes to choose from: Alphabet Train, Fairytale Castle, Giant Fire Truck, Dinosaurs, USA Map and Safari.

Plush Animated Bank

Introducing two of childhood’s most memorable objects combined into one! Our Plush Animated Bank is a fun way for kids to learn the value of saving. Each time a coin is inserted into the bank enthusiastic animal sounds and movements are made. The dog wags its tail, yips, and barks, while the Pig wiggles his ears, squeals and grunts. The Plush Animated Bank is the perfect gift for kids because it teaches them lifelong skills in the guise of entertainment.
