Kids' Gift Ideas by Personality Type

‘Tis the season for gifting! But when you have kiddos with different personalities like our seven madcap Oddbods, picking out gifts can be pretty tricky.

​​According to experts, there are three broad categories of toddler personality:

  • Easy or happy, but not full-tilt constantly

  • Shy or slow to warm -- often thoughtful and quiet

  • Spirited (a nice term for "Get down off the refrigerator right now!")

But if you still can't decide which toy matches their personality best, don't worry - stick to the principle of gifting "Toys that require imagination — and that can be used in lots of different ways."

We’ve prepared a curated guide of gifts to make your Christmas gift buying a tad easier — here are some ideas for every kiddo on your list! Whether they’re a tiny technophile who loves anything that involves gadgets and technology, or if they’re the cautious environmentalist that cares about the environment while indulging in their favourite activity — we’ve got it all!
