Nasiba: What’s on my Kids’ Wish List for Santa
Need a little gifting inspiration? The Tot Founder and soon to be mama of three, Nasiba Adilova, shares what’s on her children’s wish lists for Santa.
With Christmas just a few short weeks away, my kids have been reminding me non-stop what they’re asking for from Santa.
My eldest child, who has just turned four, has a lot of different interests at the moment. While one day he doesn’t want to do anything but bike around the neighborhood, other days he’d rather read a book, play with a dollhouse set or practice making music. He is currently learning how to play the guitar and really wants an acoustic one from the Schoenhut Piano Company.
To be honest, shopping for him is quite easy at the moment because he’s hungry to learn all about the world around him. As an inquisitive child who loves anything and everything to do with science, he has asked for the Copernicus Growing Coral Set so he can farm his own little reef. I love getting to do activities like this with him because he asks such thoughtful questions and I get to take the opportunity to teach him about how the world works. I also get to talk to him about why we need to take care of it.
My youngest, who is almost two, is moving at 100mph wherever he goes and knows exactly what he wants from Santa! Mostly consisting of things that help him MOVE like the Baghera Speedster Plane and the Micro Kickboard Mini 3-in-1 Deluxe Scooter, his list also has items that allow him to get creative like the Dough Parlour Holiday Gift Set which is made from 100% food-grade non-toxic ingredients!
Following in his brother’s musical footsteps, he also wants the Green Tones Drum Set, which is the perfect size and set up for a toddler. Because musical instruments are extremely beneficial for a tot’s emotional and cognitive development, I always make time for mini family jam sessions.
My favorite type of gift is one that allows my boys to play together. It warms my heart so much to see them laugh together, problem solve or imagine a wild adventure. Arguably one of the best toys for solo or buddy play, the Wishbone Wagon is totally coming from Santa this year. Made from non-toxic materials, it can be pushed, pulled, and driven; making it safe, versatile and fun.
While they may not get everything they’ve asked for, it’s fun to see what their little minds are dreaming of at the moment. Check out my kids’ full lists for Santa below!
