  1. Such an amazing post. loved the gift ideas enlisted here for children. Especially the playful Tiger toy. I used to have it in my childhood and would love to gift it to my children. Good job.

  2. Great gift ideas. It’s funny how many of these I had as a child, and my children (now in their 20’s) enjoyed. It’s nice to see some of these classic toys are still around.
