Four Great American Gifts for Kids

Kids love gifts, and many of our MyUS members love to give gifts to their children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and any other child in their lives.
Finding a great gift for that special little one can be a challenge, though, so here are four great gifts you can buy up from U.S. retailers that a kid in your life is sure to love.

Lincoln LogsBoth boys and girls love to build, and Lincoln Logs are a classic American building toy. This original Lincoln Logs starter set contains 172 pieces of wood designed for easy assembly by little hands. Your child can let his or her imagination run free with Lincoln Logs, and there is no limit to what he or she can build.

Mr. Potato Head – Another classic kid’s toy, Mr. Potato Head lets kids experiment with designing a face on a plastic potato body. This Playskool Mr. Potato Head Super Spud, designed for young kids ages two (2) and up, features two large potato bodies, two small potato bodies and an assortment of eyes, noses, mouths, hats, ears and accessories. Perfect for a girl or a boy!

Kid’s Guitar – Studies show that playing a musical instrument helps kids learn better and retain more information, and the guitar is a great starting instrument for kids ages six (6) and up. This half-sized guitar is perfect for kid hands, built of sturdy wood and features nylon strings great for beginner players.

American GirlIf you have a special young lady in your life, she is sure to love an American Girl doll. These all-American dolls celebrate girls and all that they can become. When shopping for an American Girl doll, you can choose a “My American Girl,” customized to your little one, an infant-like “Bitty Baby” or an “American Girl Character” fashioned after famous women from American history. American Girl dolls are suitable for girls ages three (3) and up.
