Choosing the Best Toys and Gifts for Learning and Entertainment

Photo by Yan Krukov

The delight of receiving a gift can be viewed through the eyes of a kid. It will shine brightly anytime he sees a present, and brighter when he receives the gift he has wished for. Gifts for children vary according to their age and interests. As your child grows older, his or her interests will shift, and what they see on television or the internet, in particular, will have a significant impact. In general, children like something that engages their minds and lasts a long time; the level of amusement is undoubtedly an important consideration when giving a child a gift.





Educational presents keep your child's attention for extended periods by feeding his or her brain's need for stimulation. These advantages offer him a leg up in a reading, math, and science. They foster his enthusiasm for learning, which is the most critical factor in raising a smart child. A wonderful educational present can even spark a lifelong passion in your child.

We may shop for things and gifts online instead of going to the mall with the help of the internet. You may find a wide range of products and accessories to give as gifts online for any occasion. Christmas is approaching, and it's never too early to start shopping for gifts for family members; as the saying goes, nothing is too early for Christmas.

We can enumerate some gift ideas we can find online:

1. Toys for a variety of interests and sciences

One's interests are heavily influenced by science. This is where someone develops a passion for particular topics, which can then develop into a career ambition for professionals such as engineers, doctors, pilots, and others. Role-playing toys, such as microscopes, stethoscopes, and wood blocks, are important in a child's education. Musical instruments are also considered interesting toys, and musically-minded children will like them significantly. It's also known as brain-stimulant toys, and they are linked to higher IQ scores. 

2. Learning Toys

The best gift you can give is instructional or learning toys. It is best to learn when he is playing. Identifying toys that are age and gender appropriate might offer you a good start when shopping. Toys in today's world are interactive and have Smart-intelligence capabilities. 


I came across Gan Cube 356 X when looking for educational toys. It is a reinvented magnet system that retains the pieces of the Rubik's Cube—the cube toy we all grew familiar with! 

This is an excellent gift for both children and adults, such as ourselves.


3. Brain exercise games


Board and puzzle games are examples of toys in this category. 

The most vital portion of the human body, the brain, requires exercise through games and other educational stimulants. Puzzles and board games are best enjoyed with family and friends in groups. Individually or in groups, some board and puzzle games are also played professionally. Books and other reading materials are also brain stimulants. Reading books builds the language neural connections in your kid's brain and expands his chain of knowledge.



4. Video Games, Educational Videos, and Computer Software


Kids who have access to the internet are well aware of the numerous video and instructional games available for download. There are also many free software games available, as well as commercial games that you may purchase and give to them as a gift. Always keep an eye on the security of the games they're trying to get into. As adults and parents, our first goal is to instill learning, not just play. Let's make sure that their online experience is educational.


5.  Pets


Animals are excellent gifts as well. A trip to the aquarium may teach your child about aquatic life, and kittens and puppies can help your child develop an appreciation for animals. When your child sees seeds grow into plants, he will be fascinated. Who knows, maybe your child's love of nature will one day enable him to help save the earth. 


Remember to personalize the gifts you want to give to family members; this shows that you care and are thoughtful. Also, instead of going crazy with your budget, look for low-cost options online.

WHAT I RECEIVED from CARONIA PHILIPPINES as a CONTEST PRIZE

 


Can you tell from the video preview how happy I am? Yes, winning a prize in an online contest will make you very happy! 

I entered this Facebook contest a few months ago, and it was all about nail polish for this nail product brand. It was their summer contest in which entrants used the provided nail color app to answer a question about their summer travel destination. 
I joined because I simply love the brand and the nail colors! 

I was one of the lucky 15 chosen as the winners from hundreds who participated. Because of my busy schedule, I didn't check the winners' announcement for another month, haha! I messaged the page right away and sent them my shipping information. Even though it took me a month to contact them, they were gracious enough to send me the prize. 


Check out the Youtube unboxing video I made and see what's inside the prize package!

PSA Certificate Online Application and Delivery: A Step-by-Step Guide

We were supposed to go to our local PSA office before the pandemic to get birth certificates for a trip that had been cancelled due to the world health crisis of 2020. 

Our documents were cancelled, and our travel plans were put on hold. People can travel again now that the majority of people have been vaccinated and COvid-19 cases are lower than before. 


I'm excited to share what I discovered: you can request and receive certificates from PSA-NSO online, and documents will be delivered to your preferred address anywhere in the Philippines—you can even request certificates for family members!




PSAHelpline.ph allows you to order a PSA birth, marriage, death, or CENOMAR certificate online and have it delivered to your door anywhere in the Philippines. It's the quickest and most convenient method to acquire your PSA credentials in days, with multiple payment options and customer service channels to help you along the process. 

You can enjoy the convenience of a PSA birth certificate online application and acquire your PSA credentials in the comfort and safety of your own home with only a few clicks. The ordering procedure is simple and can be completed on a computer or a mobile device. The PSA certificates are only given to the rightful owner or authorised requester if a valid identification is presented. 



Let me walk you through the procedure step by step based on my own experience:


  1. Go to your browser (mobile or computer) and type in psahelpline.ph, then this will appear.

     

  • Nationwide delivery of PSA certificates (3-4 working days within Metro Manila; 3-8 working days outside Metro Manila). 

  • Click the ORDER NOW button.


  1. Choose the Certificate Type: Birth, Marriage, Death, or CENOMAR (Certificate of No Marriage). Accept the Terms and Conditions and the Privacy Policy before hitting the Next button. 




What we require are updated copies of our birth certificates, which I will secure on behalf of my children.





The following information was needed in this step: 


  • Your name, sex, birthday, and valid government-issued ID
  • Your name as it appears on your birth certificate
  • Your father’s name
  • Your mother’s name
  • Your birthplace
  • Late registration (if applicable)
  • The purpose of your request
  • Legal proceedings (if applicable)
  • Your delivery address and contact information


3. Input all the necessary details and proceed to the next page.
*** Select the preferred government issued ID you have. You need to present this to the delivery man.
*** Make sure you confirm all the complete and correct details for your full name that will appear on your request, that can’t be changed.
4. Input father’s and mother’s name on the next pages.
5. Choose from the drop down menus for the birth place location.
6. Certificate of late registration- you need to validate this portion for easy verification.
7. Purpose of the request- choose from the items listed.
8. Legal proceedings- choose from the items listed if there were any legal proceedings from the time or prior to the registration.
9. The last part of the application would be confirming all the details and the delivery address, double check everything.
10. Payment options- you can choose from any of the online payments available. For the birth certificate request, we paid Php365.00/order.




Take note of the following time frames for the delivery of your request for delivery reminders. 

Because we are not in a rush for PSA paperwork, I found PSAHelpline.ph to be helpful. With just a few taps on my phone, I can process requests at home. I'll be sharing this with my mommy friends in my MommyBloggersPhilippines groups!

On May 4th, I requested birth certificates for myself, my son, and my daughter. The first two orders arrived on May 18th, and the last one arrived the next day. The entire procedure took 14 days (including weekends).

Mondelēz International Makes Friends with Miming


 

  • Continued Partnership with Save Philippine Seas for Environmental Learning 

  • Learning about Waste Collection for Kids through Videos and Songs 

  • Episode 1 launched on World Oceans Day

    Snacks Company Mondelēz International is committed to growing its business by making their products in the right way, with positive impact for people and the planet. The Company calls it “Sustainable Snacking,” with a vision to help create a future where people and planet thrive. While sustainable snacking covers many areas of its supply chain, one area that the Company is focusing on is packaging. Mondelēz International commits that by 2025, 100% of its packaging will be designed to be recycled. 

    Apart from the Company’s actions to create better and less packaging, it also aims to support net zero waste through improved systems, aiming for a circular pack economy. They believe in education, of shaping recycling habits early on in childhood so that everyone can contribute to reducing waste today and in the future.

    With this goal, Mondelēz International has renewed its partnership with advocacy group Save Philippine Seas (SPS) for educational materials on waste management. This year, the two have collaborated with Miming and Friends, an all-Filipino and homegrown YouTube channel focused on providing valuable lessons to kids through animation and songs. 

    Continued Partnership with Save Philippine Seas

    The first episode of Miming and Friends supported by Mondelēz International was released on World Oceans Day on June 8, 2022 and is the first in a series of five.  It talks about the importance of segregating waste at home, to ensure they don’t end up in the ocean. SPS serves as consultant and advisor to the Miming episodes on waste collection. Led by Anna Oposa, Executive Director and “Chief Mermaid,” SPS is an organization that aims to empower citizens towards environmental consciousness, leading to collective action and behavior change. In 2021, Mondelēz  International and SPS released a series of infographics sharing the real reasons behind marine litter, entitled “There’s Plenty of Plastics in the Sea; How did this Happen?”



    Partnering with Miming and Friends 


    Miming and Friends, led by Cat-Fish Miming, flying lizard Buboy, and Unicorn Anacorn, join the many friends they meet along the way in learning about the world. Other video topics include values, how to count and sing, and the importance of caring for each other and the environment - all from the multilingual and multicultural perspective of the Filipino experience. The channel is the creation of Miming and Fwends Animation Studios, formed by partners Ramon and Meryll del Prado from Dumaguete, Negros Oriental, “The values we espouse through Miming and Friends very much align with the values of Mondelēz International and Save Philippine Seas. We are thrilled about this partnership as it fully synergizes with the greater goal of having responsible children as they grow up to become mindful adults.”  

    “We are delighted to work with Mondelēz International and Miming and Friends for educational videos and songs about caring for our environment, particularly in helping shape waste collection habits early on among children,” adds Oposa. “We support waste collection projects in communities, and we also know that early education plays an important role in empowering everyone to prevent marine litter.” 

    Oposa ends, “On behalf of Mondelēz International, we would like to invite everyone to watch the first episode of our joint effort, and hope kids and adults alike learn from it.”
