I keep meaning to make some nice orderly gift-idea post with all previous gift-idea posts listed by age, but here it is the 17th already. There is something I need to fix about my blog to make it more searchable by category, but that is low on the list right now, so in the MEANTIME, one thing you can do is scroll to the end of this post, and see where it says “posted in gift ideas,” down at the bottom? If you click “gift ideas,” I believe you will be taken to a big, messy, multi-page chunk of all previous gift-idea posts.
This particular post is based on the wish lists of Edward (10) and Henry (8).
Kanoodle. I don’t know if this will be fun or frustrating, but both boys want it, and I love to buy things that more than one kid will want to play with.
Laser Maze. What even is this. Apparently they saw a YouTube video about it.
The Greatest Dot-to-Dot Adventure Book. Edward wants this, and he is careful and patient enough that I’m willing to buy it. Henry would be punching holes in the pages with frustration after about 30 seconds.
Trapdoor Checkers. Another thing they saw on YouTube.
Guinness Book of World Records 2016: Gamer’s Edition. They PORE over these records books.
Strawz. This is probably a silly overpriced waste of money, but both boys wanted it BADLY, and both were pitifully saving their allowances, so I got them each a set.
Nerf guns. Sigh. I have mixed feelings.
Plastic army men. Mixed feelings continue.
Minecraft Story Mode. I don’t fully understand it, but apparently you can create the game yourself? Or something? Edward says it’s similar to Super Mario Maker, which is a game he wants very badly but we’re not going to buy a Wii U just so he can play it.
Heated throw. Edward is often chilly in the mornings. The price is going up and down on Amazon; my mom and I found one for $29.99 at Target, on sale for $26.99.
Twister Rave Skip-it. I did not pay what Amazon is currently charging: I got it for $20 at Target.
Cool dice. Henry is very jealous of Rob’s dice collection.
Cuddlekins walrus. Walruses are a huge fad at our house right now, and you would not believe how nice this one is to snuggle.
