Dinosaurs have successfully captured the hearts and minds of children for generations. Chances are you had a sibling or knew someone who was pretty obsessed with all things dino when they were younger. Encouraging a specific interest or passion like dinosaurs is great for your child’s development and recent studies have shown that children who have an intense interest in dinosaurs have a stronger understanding of the world around them and may have an edge on their peers.
If your little one has a birthday coming up soon, then you may be wondering what you can spoil them with. Make a start by checking out this toy range suitable for 3 year old boys and read on to discover some additional gift ideas for your little dinosaur enthusiast.
Ok, so it’s not the most exciting of birthday gifts, but anything that features your little one’s favourite dinosaur will certainly go down well. Kids grow out of clothes incredibly quickly, so asking friends and family members to top up their wardrobe with a few dino-themed pieces is always a good idea. Items such as hoodies, PJs, hats scarves and gloves usually last longer than t-shirts and jeans.
Add some bite to their lunchtime routine with a new dino-themed lunch box and drinks bottle. They’ll love showing it to their friends at daycare, and they might even channel their favourite herbivore and eat all their veggies! A personalised option will make these practical gifts even more delightful.
