We had a chance to look through a couple toy stores at the Galleria mall in Dallas. There are some amazing things to buy kids now! Here are some suggestions for younger parents who don't know what to buy their children: crayons, dolls, Play-doh, books, and building blocks. Then how about paints and balls and more books? The zippy, more expensive gifts might get a wider-eyed immediate response. But over the long haul, it's the gifts that invite them to be imaginative and creative that are cherished.
