Depending on which stage of development your sassy child is in, choose from among the following presents to help them out:

Encourage your kid to expand their vocabulary or improve their language abilities by gifting them with a talking toy with recording capabilities. Some toys have built-in educational functionalities, like counting or phonetics.
- Blocks or building toys: Buying your kid toys that need building or constructing helps promote motor skills, as well as hand and eye coordination. If your child likes to build things, buy some lightweight and colorful blocks that are easy to set aside once playtime is over. To make them enjoy their toys better, get one that’s made according to their favorite characters.
- Squishy toys: You can buy clay to let your kids reshape and create anything, their imagination being the only limit. You can also make your own squishy toy by taking a resealable plastic bag and filling it with water, glitters, and anything that may fancy your kid.

Aside from merely building the set, there are other ways your kid can enjoy the set. Some offer interactive quizzes and other forms of unconventional play experiences.
