Baby gifts and child travel games of today

It's becoming more complicated to buy baby gifts these days. When my kids were on the way the gifts largely consisted of baby blankets, soft one piece suits and small toys. Back then, there were lots of gift giving options but not like there is now.

Parents are also growing pickier about what types of baby gifts they want for their new children. And why not? Expanded options mean that parents are more likely to find exactly what they have in mind. Two emerging areas in particular are in eco-friendly clothing and travel items.

Reducing our carbon footprints is gaining attention. Moms and dads are more likely to ask for and choose eco-friendly baby gifts and other items for their children. Packaging and shipping counts. Today's parents want to know where the toys and clothing are made and what the products are made from.

At the same time, families are become more mobile than ever before. Travel merchandise for kids is hot, hot, hot. Mobility is fueling the demand for travel games for children and toddlers. Baby gifts are increasingly including travel games or special luggage.

And how are companies responding to the new parent demands? Take a look at the links below to see for yourself.
