By the end of the one-hour newscast, the giddy anchor announces the obligatory Christmas countdown. “Just nine days to go and it’s Christmas!”

If you, like me, haven’t begun Christmas shopping for your godchildren yet, check out these neat kiddie items worth P200 and up I found on Lazada (photos of the actual items are from the Lazada website):
|A Play Doh Burger Builder set sells at P799.|
Toddlers – my daughter included – and young children love the gooey mess that come in those tiny 5-ounce Play Doh cans – so much so, they gobble them like vultures! True story.
Play Doh sets help promote hand-eye coordination and imagination. The non-toxic, malleable dough encourages inquisitive minds to squash, squeeze and sculpt any creation imaginable from scratch using their bare hands. Seriously, what kind of child wouldn’t adore such messy, explorative play?
2. Wooden Toys (Starts at P298)
Aside from their green and safety component and longer lifespan, wooden toys allow for better developmental play. They’re simpler; instead of batteries and manuals, they rely on the child’s creativity and imagination to shape possibilities. In addition, they are multi-texured, which as studies suggest, enhances overall sensory experience and brain progress.
3. Animal hard-shell backpack (P699)
4. Underwater Lomo Camera (P899)
Do you have a budding George Tapan for a godchild? Indulge his photo ingenue potential with the Aquapix Underwater Lomo Camera. The durable, waterproof plastic casing protects the underwater camera from water splashes (submergable up to 4 meters deep!), bumps and other kiddie accidents. It comes with a free 24- shot film roll and yummy designs too (Disney characters, Barbie, floral; or in plain colors – green, blue, red, pink, white, purple, and black).
5. DTC Junior (P1,988)
