Birthday Gift Ideas

On September 16th, my little boy will turn 3. Funny how time flies!ย  And now he has grown into a hyper active kiddo and a very talkative one,lol.. He just can’t stop running and talking! Good thing we have a big house, plenty of rooms to play hide and seek, and lots of free space to ride his “twist car” and play catch me with “kuya”.

Since his birthday is coming up and we already went to Ocean Park for his brother’s birthday celebration last August, we’re thinking of giving him something that he will enjoy playing. More on the educational toys side, because my son can already read the Alphabet and count Numbers. Oh boy, we can sometimes hear him read what he sees on the television. Such a smart boy!


So, what educational toys are appropriate for a 3 year old? We already bought him ABC and Number Puzzles, and he likes that a lot. He has plenty of kiddie books handed down from cousins. He also have these shapes puzzle, the one where in you have to insert the right shape to get it through. So what else can we give him?

If you have a small child of about the same age as my son’s, what would you give him as a Birthday Gift? We’re open for some ideas here and we’d love to hear your thoughts.

  2. I suggest you give him a Magnetic drawing boards were he can draw and write his name.

    1. Sounds great, Jen! I wonder how much it costs now,lol… Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. @EihdraG,
        around $15 to $20

        anyway, can you comment on this post, I need it to have my own domain for free, Thanks

        1. Yaiks! That’s way too much, Jen. Would have to find something cheaper,hehehe.. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. how about an activity book eihdra? the one that has puzzles, connect the dots, color the page and other games? I think that will be cool.

    1. Great idea too Gee since he loves to doodle now.. Might as well involve him in activities like that.. This didn’t cross my mind..hehehe..thanks again ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. When my son turned 2, he already knows how to read ABC (but only the capital letters, thanks to the ABC poster we bought for him). When he turned three, he knows how to write ABC because of the educational video we bought for him so I think it’s best to give him educational video.

    You can also buy him a toy where he could write and erase easily – I think it is called Magic Slate. Expose him to books as well. We never regret buying our son books even though he can’t read yet and because we exposed him to books at an early age, he began to love them early as well.

    My friends were amazed when they heard my son saying “Wow!” when we gave him a book. They said their children never say “Wow!” when they are given books.

    1. You know what, I’ve been seeing this educational video aired on a local home shopping network where in a 6month old baby already knows how to read. Guess I’ll try that, anyway there’s a money back guarantee,lol… Lol, Magic Slates are long gone Noel,lol.. I think it’s now called a Sketch Board.. But I can still see some magic slates sold in “bangketas” around.. Anyway, Thanks for the nice tip re videos.. Will definitely try that. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Your posts here makes me want to have a kid na.
    My nanay also opted to buying us educational toys or activity books when we were kids. My grandparents were the ones who bought us most of the toys we enjoyed back then. Hehehe. But, everything paid off. I guess you’re already seeing the effects. Smart kids you got there, sis! ๐Ÿ™‚ Mana sa nanay?

    1. Hahhaha.. Indeed, mana sa parents! Truly, we’re blessed ๐Ÿ™‚
