Best Gifts for Toddlers
What makes a really awesome gift for a toddler?
Is it the way it's made? Is it what it's made out of? Is it where it came from?
Well, Nawi Dinos are stuffed with recycled plastic bottles. They're made in the USA and they are absolutely adorable. Their carbon footprint is kept to a minimum by transporting via electric and/or hybrid vehicles and the "Nawi Gives Back" program helps provide funding for the educations of people involved in manufacturing the goods. Those things are important to parents and caregivers, but the real question is this: What does a toddler care about where her toy came from?
The truth is shocking.
The absolute best gifts for toddlers are the ones they play with and your little one will love anything and everything Nawi. Not only can you, the buyer, feel good about your purchase, but you won't see it wasted on another mass produced piece of plastic that ends up broken in a week.
Plushie Dinos are great for imaginative play, the best kind of play, and your toddler will adore her new toy.
So, what kinds of things should you expect your tiny darling and her new best friend to get up to?
1. Playing school
Be on the look out for books, paper and crayons. Dino will have a lot of things to learn and your toddler is probably going to want to teach it all about the world. Encourage her in this endeavor by providing maps, picture books, pencils and paper. Grab a colorful magazine, some safety scissors and make a chart to help Dino learn more. Meanwhile your child is actually learning too, though she might not realize it.
2. Fashion Design
Uh-oh. It's cold outside and Dino doesn't have a hat or scarf or gloves! Guess what that means? TIME TO MAKE SOME! This is an awesome activity to do together if you're into sewing and, even if you're not, some paper crafting can do the trick. You might try allowing your toddler to get creative here and see what she comes up with! You can use these experiences to discuss weather topics and you may find you've got a budding designer on your hands.
3. Culinary Arts
What exactly do dinosaurs like to eat? Probably the same things your toddler does. So, let her and Dino help out in the kitchen by giving them pots, pans and spoons. Make dinosaur shaped cookies or a special dinosaur dinner; this is also a great way to introduce new foods to your child because if Dinos eating it, she might want to try too!
4. Being Nap Time Buddies
If you've got a tired toddler on your hands, who really doesn't want to sleep, Dino may be the helper you're looking for. Dinosaurs get tired too, don't 'cha know? They need naps, but sometimes they want someone to lie down with them, someone like a cranky toddler. (Well, it can't hurt to try...)
To be honest there are endless possibilities and that's what makes Nawi toys some of the greatest presents for the children in your life! The best gifts for toddlers are the ones that help them learn without realizing it, the ones they spend all day playing pretend with.
The best gifts for toddlers are the ones that last for years and create wonderful memories for the whole family to look back on. Those are definitely the best gifts for toddlers.
