Why do children love dinosaurs – it seems to always be the case as they are certainly not going out of fashion. Both boys and girls are fascinated by these strange creatures from the past. So, if a new baby is on the way, it can be a nice idea to plan baby gifts for the new arrival and possibly a dinosaur toy for the older brother or sister so they don’t feel left out. Or even plan to buy a group of a few different dinosaurs that can be presented to the child at times when needed.
It is easy for the older sister or brother to feel left out when the new baby comes home and all the attention is on them. Most parents want to be careful not to provoke more jealousy than necessary, so gifts from parents to the older child, or even ‘from’ the new baby can often help the older child to feel more noticed and wanted.
Building up a collection of dinosaurs could punctuate the first year and give the older one a feeling of being part of everything that is going on, as they see their little gathering of dinosaurs grow throughout the year.
