Being a teacher and having an "educator" mentality at heart, I'd say books would be great. My opinion is that kids benefit from "toys" that challenge their brains -- and reading develops imagination, etc. long term.

I heartily vote for books, too. Or gift cards to a bookstore, so the children can pick their own books. Unless that would create more problems for the parents (like wanting other things that cost more than they have to spend).

Sure wish you were my friend on my birthdays. I love getting books & gift cards to bookstores!

as a mom of 5 & 8 year olds, I love educational gifts too!! I also have given money as a gift to kids that age and THEY LOVE IT, and you don't have to go to the store!! Or maybe put a couple of dollars inside a book.
