How to Pick the Perfect Present For Kids

Lil Community: How Do You Choose the Perfect Present For a Child?

The following question is from LilSugar Community member lola82, who posted it in The Mommy Club.

I bravely set foot into Target this past Black Friday, not for the latest blink-and-you'll miss deal, but because I needed some essentials. Because it was late, the store wasn't as bustling as I expected — except, of course, for the toy department. It was full of screams, electronic sounds and energetic kids happily playing with all the goods.

All that excitement and the sheer selection of toys got me thinking: how do parents pick the right wow-factor present for their kids? I know Lil's got the list of most-wanted toys for the season, but I also know that some parents shy away from toys for any number of reasons, from suspected lead content to choking hazards.

All the craziness of toy season has me exhausted, and I'm not even a mom! So moms, tell me, amidst all the blinking lights and begging from your lil ones, what are your criteria when picking out a safe and fun present for them?
