Legos are a classic toy and are a popular gift for a reason! While there are many elaborate sets of Legos that become collector items, start your child off with the basic box of assorted shapes and sizes. This will guarantee you hours of quiet as your kid starts building creations!

For younger kids, you can start with the larger Mega-Blocks or the Duplo set, which is the same idea as Legos but is bigger and easier to maneuver for younger hands.

(Note: Legos are fantastic but notoriously hard to keep clean and organized, especially when you have little kids. I love my CreativeQT Lego Container, which has a mat where kids can play attached to a storage bin where the Legos can stay.)

The best way to keep your curious kids engaged is by buying them books to read. Start them off with books that answer questions or books of facts and science. You can take them to the library for lots of books, but studies show that owning books makes kids more likely to read and often more successful in life. So grab some of these books, and your child will be thrilled!
