5 Stocking Stuffer Ideas From Good For The Kids — Plus A 20% Off Coupon Code!

5 Stocking Stuffer Ideas From Good For The Kids — Plus A 20% Off Coupon Code!

Hey, did you guys know that Angie from A Whole Lot of Nothing has an online store for kids called Good for the Kids? Well, color me an idiot because she has had it all this time and I didn’t know, and I’ve never featured her here on Commodity Fetishism, despite the fact that she carries a bunch of brands that I like to get for Mini like Melissa and Doug and Nuby. I decided to go through her inventory and come up with some ideas for stocking stuffers since it’s getting to be that time again to give you guys a chance to get some of your shopping done and support somebody within the community in their entrepreneurial endeavors. [FYI: this is not a sponsored post, I just noticed the other day that Angie had an e-store that carried some of my favorite brands and was blown away that I had passed up a chance to feature a small business owned by somebody I know here in this space.] Angie is giving us 20% off at Good For The Kids with the coupon code annav20.

1. Melissa and Doug Picture Frame Drawing Pads $4.49

Mini is now into his drawing pictures for Mom and Dad phase. I like this pad because it makes every one into a work of art.

2. Melissa and Doug Fire Engine Color-A-Mat Placemat

This is a dry erase mat that kids can color while they are waiting for dinner. Anything that keeps kids occupied while they are at the dinner table gets a thumbs up from me.

3. Melissa and Doug Sandwich Stacking Game

I haven’t actually played this sandwich stacking game, I just like the way it looks. Generally speaking, I like the idea of a giant sandwich, even if you cannot actually eat it.

4. Melissa and Doug Stir Fry Pretend Food Play Set

5. Melissa and Dough Child Safe Scissors

I know what you’re thinking: scissors, Anna? Really? Can’t come up with something a little more thrilling than that? But listen, if you have a three year old in your house right now, you now what I’m talking about. The three year old set is big on scissors. They want scissors. If your kid hasn’t got on the scissors kick yet, do yourself a favor and buy some child safe scissors now so that you don’t constantly have to have the conversation about why they cannot use your kitchen scissors to cut paper. Then give them a stack of paper and sit back while they spend hours using these babies to cut.

    We bought the stir fry kit for Missy for her birthday and while I highly recommend it, I wouldn’t classify it as a stocking stuffer. It’s pretty substantial in size.

    I love the frame pads and the scissors! Thanks for the ideas!

    Yeah, about halfway through the list it occurred to me these weren’t really stocking stuffers. But oh well. 🙂
