Having kids is such a goofy thing. When they are tiny you can sort of direct their interests, but at some point their personalities begin to shine and they latch onto something you never would have brought up. They can become absolutely obsessed with this thing, to the point that you know more about medieval fighting tactics or African pangolins than you ever thought remotely possible. I’m curious….what funny things are your kids fascinated with these days?
Ironically, this is also the point in parenthood when you find yourself googling things like “knight pajamas” and “truck coloring books.” We’ve started tailoring our gift-giving to their latest fixation, so I thought I would share a few of my recent fave finds (in the off chance that your kids also love archery or animals, ballerinas or bears).
KNIGHTS + ARCHERY
The new fairyland collection at Boden is basically my kids’ dream come true. There are so many good pieces that they would flip over. (Thanks for the tip, Sara!) PS: 20% off plus free shipping with this coupon code.
Every kid I’ve ever asked has a favorite animal, and somehow our daughter looooves kangaroos. She’s had a kangaroo birthday cake, but somehow toys have been a little hard to come by. When in doubt, I try to find a pair of pajamas.
Our son is an animal lover, but bears were his first love. He owns more bear-themed gear than anyone else I know.
This is certainly not unique to my daughter, based on the amount of ballet-inspired options available. Like many little girls out there, ballerinas are endlessly fascinating to her, and we play Nutcracker music year round.
I’d love to hear…what do your kids LOVE these days?
