It can also be pets.


Prob­a­bly, there is no boy or girl in the world who would not dream of a dog. A pup­py is not the most expen­sive pur­chase.

This gift will cause a stream of tur­bu­lent emo­tions, a sea of ​​grat­i­tude and a bunch of solemn oaths and promis­es to study ll, obey and take care of the ani­mal. Alas, this is not always the case.

You can give a dog to a child only if if he is respon­si­ble and under­stands many things.

  • Pup­py is a liv­ing beingand not a toy that can be for­got­ten in a ek and hid­den in a dis­tant drar.
  • The ani­mal will live in the house not a day or a month, but 10–18 years. This is a new mem­ber of the fam­i­ly, a devot­ed friend, a part­ner in games and pranks, who will grow up with him, and when he grows up, the dog will grow old and begin to need even more care and love.
  • Pup­py needs to be fed edu­cate, walk with him and treat him.

If you decide to take such a respon­si­ble step, choose the breed that is suit­able for the child. Do not take a pup­py of aggres­sive, fight­ing breeds. Your child’s friends can be:

  • lsh cor­gi;
  • pug;
  • bea­gle;
  • Labrador;
  • Gold­en retriev­er;
  • Ger­man Shep­herd.

If you decide to adopt a pooch from a shel­ter, it will cost you almost noth­ing.

These dogs are no less faith­ful and devot­ed friends than thor­ough­breds, and your act will teach the child to be mer­ci­ful and kind-heart­ed.


A cute kit­ten is games, fun and laugh­ter. And along with them dis­ci­pline and respon­si­bil­i­ty for those whom you have tamed. The cat must be edu­cat­ed, fed, treat­ed, accus­tomed to the tray. Let your “lit­tle prince” or “princess” take care of the ani­mal.

Suit­able cat breeds:

  • Maine Coon;
  • Burmese;
  • cana­di­an sph­ynx;
  • British Short­hair.

In the nurs­ery, you can also pick up an ordi­nary affec­tion­ate and kind kit­ten.

Hamsters, chinchillas, rats and fish

These pets are more incon­spic­u­ous in the house, but they also require atten­tion and trou­ble. Car­ing for a child is much eas­i­er, but parental con­trol is still nec­es­sary.

Choosing gadgets

We can­not imag­ine our life with­out mod­ern tech­nol­o­gy. The far­ther, the wider and more fan­tas­tic its pos­si­bil­i­ties become. Our chil­dren can­not imag­ine them­selves with­out mod­ern gad­gets. This is the dream of every boy and girl at the age of 10.

You please the birth­day boy if you buy him the fol­low­ing gad­gets as a gift.

  • Smart­phone - faith­ful helper. You can play games at recess, in trans­port on the way home, watch or shoot an inter­est­ing video, chat with friends. If you urgent­ly need infor­ma­tion, you can quick­ly find the ansr on the Inter­net.
  • Tablet — more oppor­tu­ni­ties for games, pho­tos and videos. It is con­ve­nient to take with you for a walk, on a trip.
  • Elec­tron­ic book - a great oppor­tu­ni­ty not to take a heavy “paper car­ri­er” with you. You can down­load the book you want and take it to school. Mod­ern mod­els allow you to down­load the nec­es­sary mate­r­i­al from the Inter­net, lis­ten to music, view pho­tos.
  • Gyroscoot­er is not just an unusu­al means of trans­porta­tion, it is an active rest for a child after men­tal stress in the fresh air. Rid­ing a hov­er­board devel­ops the vestibu­lar appa­ra­tus, devel­ops dex­ter­i­ty, improves coor­di­na­tion of move­ments.
  • smart watch - a nec­es­sary gad­get for a child if he often moves around the city alone or goes on a long trip with­out you. You can call him direct­ly on the watch, con­trol his path with the help of a GPS nav­i­ga­tor. Espe­cial­ly suit­able gift for chil­dren who may lose the phone.
  • Game con­soles - some­thing that fas­ci­nates and makes you for­get about every­thing, the world of the game is so inter­est­ing and attrac­tive. If you use this mag­i­cal thing for a child in a dosed and wise way, the hob­by will only ben­e­fit. The gamepad devel­ops fine motor skills of the fin­gers, and you can choose edu­ca­tion­al and edu­ca­tion­al games.

We give impressions

Vivid emo­tions and impres­sions on your birth­day are no less valu­able than an expen­sive gift that you can touch and hold in your hands.

The hol­i­day will be remem­bered for a long time if you spend it out­side the box:

  • go with the whole fam­i­ly to the climb­ing wall, paint­ball, rope park, water park;
  • order an excit­ing sci­ence show, quest, paper or foam par­ty, wind tun­nel flight for the birth­day boy and his friends;

What can be done with your own hands?

A child of 10 years old will appre­ci­ate the gift that you made with your own hands. Moth­ers, grand­moth­ers, old­er sis­ters who know how to needle­work will be able to make unique things with their own hands:

  • a sleep­ing set with a suit­able theme for a girl and a boy;
  • cool pil­low or blan­ket;
  • a pic­ture embroi­dered with beads;
  • unusu­al mat for sports.

Those who have found them­selves in the art of con­fec­tionery can make a beau­ti­ful cake with fon­dant fig­urines and cream dec­o­ra­tions. Those who own suite design can cre­ate com­po­si­tions of sets and sets for every taste, make a Can­dy Bar for receiv­ing guests.

Dads and grand­fa­thers who own car­pen­try tools can please the birth­day man:

  • home­made orig­i­nal frame;
  • cas­ket;
  • volu­mi­nous wood­en puz­zles;
  • com­fort­able styl­ish shelves;
  • orig­i­nal wall pan­el.

Friends can make cool greet­ing cards, and with the help of adults, they can make a whole film about the birth­day boy, and arrange a pre­miere show on his birth­day.
