Children opening a gift and going wild with enthusiasm. That’s the gift we want to give, the present the child in our lives will love.
We recently had that experience. “It’s a hit,” our niece texted us with the video of her two-year old daughter Sofia using the present we’d given her.
And the best part? The fact that the over-size piano keyboard makes music with the child’s footsteps lured Sofia out of her chair and into motion. Little Sofia loves the movies Troll and Moana as testified by their presence in the background as she watched them over the Thanksgiving holiday. Just like adults tempted to sit too much, children’s health suffers the effects. Their are immediate effects as well as establishing a pattern for a lifetime of sitting.
The giant piano keyboard is suggested for children over the age of 12 months. It is suggested adults can enjoy it too. Warning: the keyboard does not come with the necessary 4 AA batteries.
This next gift suggestion is something I want for myself —but, unfortnately, it doesn’t come in adult-size.
Music and special effects noises are created by SoundMoovz, a FitBit-type device worn on the wrist, as the child moves, dances or just runs around. It is advertised as “Music by Moooving.” I haven’t seen any videos of them in use but it sounds like a promising fun gift.
It’s intended for children ages 8 or more. While I won’t be buying gift for a child in that age range this year, a friend appreciated the suggestion for the children in her life.
