My brother is seven years younger to me. As my mother was working and my father stayed in another town, I was the one who took care of him in their absence. My motherly instinct surfaced early in life. I taught him, played with him and pampered him. We were best buddies. For #EveryWishFulfilled he thanked me with his cute gestures. But, don’t even think it was a rosy picture all along. There were days I was at the receiving end of his tantrums. On one birthday, he wanted a toy which came free with a ‘pack of splash candy’ and I couldn’t find it in any store. It was Pichkoo - a pichkari in the shape of animals. Apparently, it was so popular that it was out of stock. He was very upset and annoyed with me; he even blamed me for not trying hard enough. It was then, I realized gifting to kids is a serious business. Buying gifts is comparatively easy these days with the advent of online shopping. You don’t have to run store to store to fetch a gift your child wants. Also, flood of great options is just a click away. On that note, let me share 5 Great Gifts for Kids I found on Flipkart -
For the Dotting Diva - A Barbie Dreamhouse
One can never go wrong with this gift. Every girl wants to have a barbie. I think, a doll is a girl’s first best friend. This Dreamhouse comes with a kitchen, sofa to relax, two chairs and a table for having tea with her doll; making it a perfect set-up for her fantasy world. She can play the evergreen Ghar-Ghar with her friends in style - hosting tea parties, inviting friends to play, rearranging and decorating her dreamhouse. If I have to choose a gift for a girl, this would be my first choice. Gift this to a little darling and help her create memories for a lifetime.

Chhota Bheem 8 in One Figurines for Lil' Bheem Lovers
As a child, I always loved collecting figurines. I had the whole collection of animals which came free inside Britannia Bread. I must admit, this craze has not ceased with age. I collect miniatures of every tourist place I go. Hence, I feel this Chhota Bheem 8 in One set makes a perfect gift for a child of any age group. Kids love both the animation and movie of this Indian legend, and they will love this gift too. They can reenact one of their favorite scenes with their friends and have a gala time. I gifted it to my friend’s son and he was elated when he opened the packet.
For Tiny Adventurers - Bestway Play House
This is the most fun gift ever, hands down. For those who have fantasized about having a tree-house or spending a night in a tent, will definitely agree with me. Kids love to have their own place. A little hide-out inside their rooms where they can build their own world, like Alice in Wonderland or Narnia. This one is amazing as the kids can play with it anywhere - inside the house, in the courtyard, pack it and one can take this to kid’s picnic for them to enjoy. My neighbor’s daughter keeps all her toys inside her playhouse and calls it her property. Super adorable, isn’t it! Gift this to a child and give wings to his or her imagination.
For Your Budding Pilots - Modelart 4.5 Channel Helicopter
This gift will make you the coolest person in kids journal. This automatic helicopter with remote and hovering camera is a pride to own. Not only that, it has flashlights and supports 4.5 channels which gives it a complete mean machine. It’s a perfect gift for growing boys. I have seen many kids flocking around the stalls that sell such toys. I bet, this is the most desired gift for many out there. It’s so cool that even I want one.
