Can anyone advise me on a 'sensible' 6th birthday present for a football fan? Parents are giving him the 'strip'. I would like to encourage his reading, but the annuals etc I have seen on Amazon look too advanced. Does anyone have helpful experience to share?
Have a look in WH Smith I am sure I bought one of my DGSs a football diary there with all the teams etc,it helps with the reading and helps them to understand how the team fixtures work,and he can take it with him when he goes training.(best of luck i can still remember my eldest son at six telling the manager at football i had plenty of time to wash the team strip after every game,i did it for 10 years )
Do remember that the football season is closing and topical football related books will be all too quickly "last year's model".
I like Jangly's idea very much (thank you Jangly) and have just bought it for my eldest boy who is 8 but if your boy follows the fortunes of a Lancs team, or (horror) even Man Utd., then a Chelsea story might not warm his wee heart. Just joking, the reviews look promising.
last Christmas I bought my grandson a smallish table football game from one of the gadget shops. Another idea you might consider, a duvet set, football themed of course. Why not 'google' football themed presents for children and see what comes up?
