As for my two kids, my 1 year old daughter, first off, she loves pretty much anything you get her. She LOVES books. She just sits on the floor and babbles to herself when looking and the books and likes us to read to her as well. Also, she likes all the Fisher-Price line.
As for my second child, my golden retriever...haha...she likes any stuffed animal, bone, ball, what have you that you buy her.
So...needless so say, I don't think I am going to have any problems buying anything for kids. On the other hand, it may be other relatives I have the problems with!
