    There are so much toys amd games. Children are overwhelmed by all
    the products the market offers.
    I think the best gifts for kids are simple toys. The children need to imagine, pretend, dream. A simple blanket can be a super heros cape, a house, a ghost, a tent, ect
    One of the best present is also is so wonderful to be cuddled with mom or dad and share the words and the images of a beautiful book. The books will become one of the best memories of the childhood.
