Toys & Hobbies
How do you get kids interested in new hobbies?
Persuading kids away from the TV isn’t always easy. However, getting them interested in new hobbies can provide a distraction that will keep them equally as entertained as their favourite TV show. But where to start?
Hobbies can provide a great opportunity to spend time interacting with kids, but they can also allow kids to work on something on their own. Think about what they find interesting; whether it’s art, trains, cars or magic. Use that background knowledge to find something that they will love.
This could be model building; where they build models of helicopters and aeroplanes; cars, motorbikes and trucks; boats, buildings, or character figurines. Model trains are another popular hobby; for both kids and adults. Model train enthusiasts can collect trains, tracks, people, buildings and other realistic scenery, to create a whole miniature world.
Trading cards can offer another hobby option. Some kids just love collecting things; and trading cards can provide the perfect collector’s items.
How do you find toys that kids will love?
There are so many toys out there, it can be hard knowing where to start when looking for a gift. Making it easier to search for toys, eBay features a selection of kids’ toys, perfect for kids of all ages and all preferences. From educational toys to action figures and puzzles; there are thousands of toys to choose from, within a plethora of different categories.
Games offer another popular gift option, allowing kids to play with their friends, with family, and by themselves. Some board games will never go out of fashion, such as Monopoly, Scrabble and Snakes & Ladders, but there are plenty of new games as well. For kids with an interest in magic, there are magic sets; or for kids who love puzzles, there are heaps of puzzles to keep their brains busy. For the littlies, there are lots of kids’ toys aimed at toddlers and pre-schoolers, such as musical toys and bathtime toys.
