If you are a grandparent then you probably have heard stories from your children about how messy their own kids, your grandkids, keep the living or family room with all their scattered toys tossed around. Birthday occasions are certain to pose a problem with buying gifts for your grandson or granddaughter, as they will already have received multiple gifts from parents and friends. If you’re going to buy presents for your grandchild, which, of course you definitely should do, here are some important tips about buying presents that’ll make the messy toys all the more easier to clean up!
Buy Easy Storage Toys!
There are plenty of toys on the market today that have a whole host of parts and little trinkets to take care of and keep track of. The trick to buying birthday presents for your grandchild, though, is to find the toys that have minimal clean up! This doesn’t necessarily mean that you should deprive the youngster from the popular toys that every other kid is getting these days, but it simply means that you should look for toys and activities for your grandkids that will be able to be easily stored away when they are finished playing with them!
Guidelines for Certain Presents!
If you are going to invest in birthday presents for your grandchild that includes a lot of smaller parts, then there are also certain things that you can do which would make it easier for your grandchild to store them. For example, if you decide to buy your grandchild a box of Legos, then you may know that they’ll sometimes end up on the living room floor scattered about! However, one of the creative storage ideas to get your grandchild to clean up the mess when he’s done playing with the Legos is to buy him a child’s luggage set. A child’s luggage set is usually small enough to store some of the smallest packages of Legos around and also offers an excellent solution when he wants to take them over to a friends’s house to play.
Buying Dollhouses as Birthday Presents!
If you are dealing with a granddaughter’s birthday and you are going to buy her a dollhouse, then there are certain dollhouses that are on the market that have easy storage compartments that can also be easily accessed by your grandchild! For example, some dollhouses on the market actually fold up so that all the small pieces are able to fit comfortably inside them and some even have a lock on the side so that nothing will escape!
It’s doesn’t take an absolute genius to be able to find some of these birthday toy products on the market; however, it takes a little searching to be able to find those fun and exciting toys that are combined with easy storage abilities, just in case the parents of the child will have to clean the toys up! All in all, though, what is important is that these toys should make your grandchild happy no matter the storage and cleanup factor that goes along with them!
Of course, you could forego toys altogether and get your grandchild a book, or take them out to a movie. What grandchild does not like to spend time with a grandparent?
A win-win situation for all parties.
