2009 Gift Guide: For Kids

The holidays bring out the kid in all of us. It's so much fun to find new toys and and gadgets. Here are a few items that are sure to make any kid happy....and most adults too.
The Small Paul log rocker brings the playground indoors. It's sleek and modern and has Julius, the monkey on it. I used to manage a children's boutique and I can tell you that I've never met a kid who didn't like monkeys, especially Julius. And it's 40% off.
For the budding artist on your list, this Doodlebook Frame from the MOMA Store is perfect. It is an 80 page sketchbook so they can continually create a new look around a favorite photo.

Dear Santa,
Please may I have this Jonathan Adler Collection Barbie for Christmas!!!! I have been a very good girl this year.

I have never been much of a Barbie girl, but I adore Jonathan Adler and could easily create my dreamhouse with his designs. This combo is genius- the dress, the lacquer...I want it all!
Create your own dreamhouse with this playhouse from Cardboard Design. Leave it as is or let the kids go wild and decorate it with paint, stickers, and whatever else their hearts desire. A great gift that will encourage their imagination and creativity, and it's eco-friendly too.

Or you can go with a tent pretty enough for a princess like this one from Haba. Kids love to have a special place they can escape to that is just their size.

Building blocks are a great way to encourage children to explore design. These Haba Medieval Castle Blocks include a lot of unusual shapes that allow kids to get really creative.
People often think you need to have giant play kitchen for kids to really have fun. This is soooo not true. This petit and attractive wooden kitchen by Educo is the perfect kitchen in my opinion because it's easy to move around and doesn't take up a ton of space, and it keeps the kids busy. My son received it for Christmas when he was 18 months old and is still playing with it now at 3 1/2, and my daughter who is 8 months old loves it too. They both play with it every day. It's probably the best toy we've ever owned.

There is just something about the Bla Bla mobiles that you can't help but love them. They are great over a crib to entertain baby or just hanging in a room as decor. They always put a smile on your face. You can't go wrong with anything by the brand. Their blankets and dolls are equally as endearing.
