Gifts for Tweens

– Romy is 9 1/2 now and I can see that her interests and taste are changing. This time before they become teenagers. This time where they are not children anymore… too old for toys and too young for boys… or at least not interested at all in our case.
And I love this. I love the talks we have now. Her curiosity and personality that takes more and more shape.

When your kids were small / below eight you were usually confronted with many shops, things, toys, accessories and more. Probably more than one can need and digest. And then the overwhelming kids world starts to fade. There is less and there is a little gap for these cute 9-12 years old. But there are great things!

Here is my list of great gift ideas that I would buy without a doubt for my own tween.

Tipp-Kick! Do you know Tipp-Kick? This game existed already when I was a kid and for sure I wanted to introduce my own kids and husband to it.

Hubby is French, loves football and never saw this before. And I was so right… the game arrived, unpacked by dad and son and… addicted. Whenever they find a good moment they take it out and play.

It is a really cool table-top soccer game.

And a super Christmas gift idea!

How it works: Control the kicker figure and move the 10-sided ball around the field. And score!

Above you can see the classic set, it includes two metal players with buttons you press to make the leg kick, two keepers who dive from side to side, two plastic goals, two balls and one pitch. And a rule book.
