I am also a lil nervous getting my grandson any toys with the recalls that happened earlier in fall.

My grandson in 14 mos. and I have no idea what to get him. Nor do I know what to get my son-in-law!

Any ideas????

Thanks!
At just a little over 1 year old any good toys your grandson will love I presume... you can shop online with some trusted retailers including Argos, amazon and ebay which are good ways to get a good bargain, especially during the Christmas period. I generally shop in-stores but this year I'll be shopping online as even not during the Christmas period you can get products a few quid cheaper than in-store... and especially more during the Christmas period .

Good luck and early an Merry Christmas!

present online is the way to go

I have also had good luck with ebay. If you know what you are looking for. You are able to go to hsn.com and check their clearance section - always a deal. Start now - don't wait until the fall. It will help to get a jump on it.

online is definitely a good way to go if you know what the recipient wants for sure!!!!

Gift cards seem to go over VERY well for older kids and adults. When it comes to most kids I will buy them a book and a toy. My Aunt buys my boys a MCD's gift card and gives them a five dollar bill. She has always done this for the little kids because little kids just LOVE money!!!
