We go to a lot of birthday parties. I have a great group of friends and most of them have children. The only problem with this is that when the birthday child is not the same age as my children, I never know what to get them for a gift. I recently found an awesome website to help me make this decision. Now I know that I will be giving the birthday boy or girl a toy they will love!
Ebeanstalk is a toy website that knows just how many toys are out there for you to sort through. They have a team of moms that have picked out the best of the best to provide great baby toys, toys for 1 year olds, toys for 2 year olds, and toys for all other ages! Ebeanstalk also has a panel of child experts that have matched each toy to the specific age of your child, so you know that your child is getting the most out of playtime!
Since I know what both of my kids would like, I decided to test out the website to see what it picked for my kids. First I checked out the toys for one year old boys. The first three items that were listed are definitely toys Bryce would enjoy playing with!
Bryce likes toys that allow him to put things inside of each other. The Hoops For The Tub and Super Shapes Dump Truck would be great for him. And what kid wouldn't like the Blue Rody Horse? Bouncing toys are always a hit!
Next I clicked on toys for three year old girls, since Rylie is almost three. The top three listed would definitely be great for her!
Rylie is very active, and would love bouncing around on the Hop Fantasy, or learning to play Hopscotch on the Hopscotch Rug. And to make bath time more fun, she would have a great time dressing up the foam dolls in the Fashion In The Tub play set.
Ebeanstalk gives you the ability to narrow down age in three month increments, rather than just by whole year. Since children are constantly developing, I think that is great! So not only can I find toys for a one year old, I can find toys for 1 1/4 years, 1 1/2 years and 1 3/4 years. This makes for another great gift-giving feature. You can sign up for the Grow & Learn Series. With this program, the child will not just receive one toy, but a different toy every three months, expertly-matched to the stage of the child's development. Since kids get so many toys on their birthdays and Christmas, it would be nice for them to receive a new toy at different times of the year.
Ebeanstalk.com is an awesome website, and I will definitely be using it for my gift-giving needs!
