What do you get kids for their birthday? We go straight to the source for the best present ideas.

Kids generally have a good idea of what they want for presents. We chat to two youngsters on what’s on their wish list right now to give you present ideas for the kids in your life.

What presents would you like from a toy shop?
Laser Pegs. It’s like Lego that lights up and Skylanders: Trap Team game. It’s exciting. I also like soft toy monsters and cheetahs. What clothes do you want? A cool shirt with a picture of a shark. Sharks are my favourite animal. They are cool but their teeth are ugly.

What do you like doing on the weekend?
I kick a ball around, skateboarding and soccer. Next year I’m going to be a goalkeeper.

Jaeci Miles, 5

What’s your favourite colour?
Purple. It’s one of the colours of the rainbow. I’ve got a purple bunny at home.

What’s your favourite book?
The Gruffalo. The mouse thinks the Gruffalo isn’t real, but he is. What would you like from a toy shop? A sparkly doggy or a sparkly dolphin. I like craft and making cards. I also like drawing.
