Children’s Day Gifts for Babies and Toddlers

On Children's Day, a small gift can bring joy not only to the little ones but also brings a heartwarming surprise for new parents.

When it comes to selecting the ideal Children's Day gift for babies, you have two great options: consider something tailored to their age or seek advice from their parents.

Toddlers are full of enthusiasm for exploration and play at this age. The perfect gift choice should be based on the child's unique interests and stage of development. Toys that are easy to assemble and brightly coloured would be interesting to them. Think toys like sensory play products, pop-up books, and light shows. Here are a few suggestions: 


1. Torch & Projector: Baby Shark's Big Show! 

Transform bedtime stories into a captivating light show that will keep your baby or toddler enchanted. Get ready for giggles and precious moments as you share the joy of Baby Shark's underwater adventures together in a brand new light.


2. Baby's Book The First 5 Years - Dinosaurs 

Capture every adorable milestone with this amazing Baby’s Book by Peter Pauper Press. Aside from the cute dino illustrations, the book is packed with guided pages for recording your baby's progress and ample room for photos. It’s a timeless keepsake that holds a world of memories your family would enjoy looking back into for many years to come.

Children’s Day Gifts for Younger and Older Children

As children grow older, their curiosity for new experiences grows too. Nurturing these interests on Children's Day can be a wonderful endeavour, especially for those aged 6 and beyond.

For those who love the outdoors, consider surprising them with suitable apparel and gear. Young scientists would appreciate experimental science kits, while those with a creative flair would enjoy toys and products that allow them to grow or create something from scratch.

Practicality resonates with children (and parents) as well. Ponder on items they could use at school, such as stylish backpacks and customisable diaries or notebooks. Have a look at our suggestions here!


4. Green Zaurus - Orange - Basil 

Introduce your young explorers to the world of gardening with these dinosaur planters. These cheerful dinos playfully watch over the seeds you plant on their backs, making gardening an adventure. Kids will love nurturing their very own plants as they water them by lapping up water with the dinos' tongues. It's the perfect first plant - easy to maintain and loads of fun, fostering a love for nature and a green thumb from a young age. 


5. Light-up Crystal Lab 

Ignite your child's curiosity with the Light-up Crystal Lab. This easy science kit will allow your little scientist to make their own crystal from scratch! And that's not all - this transforms into a mesmerising night-light too. It's not just an experiment kit; it's a creative addition to their bedroom, fusing learning and decor in one package. 


6. Reversible UV Hat - Wild Child 

We all know that children this age tend to be an outdoorsy wild child. With that, here’s a fun addition to your kid’s outdoor kit! This durable and reversible bucket hat will keep your children cool and safe from the strong Singapore sun. It's also two hats in one - patterned on one side and solid on the other. Easy to pack and perfect for family outings!




Children’s Day Gifts for Teenagers 

Selecting an appropriate Children's Day gift for teenagers presents its own set of challenges. Trends come and go and while keeping in touch with trends would be an easy way to plan a suitable gift for your teen, it is not really practical. Teens would lose their interest once the trend over a product has passed, and the gift becomes irrelevant. 

The key lies in choosing a gift with aesthetic appeal yet also practical and will hold their interest over the long haul. By doing so, you can ensure not only their happiness upon receiving the gift but also offer them a sense of purpose and lasting engagement. Check out these products:
