What determines whether a kid will like a gift or not? Is price a factor one should consider? Of course not. Kids don't care what a gift costs as long as they can have some fun with it. For that reason, parents and all other gift-givers should opt to buy something cheap when they can. For example. buying a kid balloons would certainly make them happy anytime. I've done that several times and the kids always love playing with the balloons. A ball would also be a great gift for the kids who like to play outdoors. Any other great gifts that kids love which don't cost much $$$ to buy?
