One of the nicest things about being a kid is that it doesn’t take much to make you happy. Give them anything that has their favourites in it, they are happy. Give them anything to play with, they are happy. It’s always nice to see kids’ eyes light up with the simplest of things, as if they have just seen gold. You don’t need to buy them expensive things to see them smile. With kids, it’s always the thought that counts.
