The Creative Soul

When really young, they draw on walls – not because they’re naughty, but out of a natural urge to express themselves with technicolour crayons.

The Sporty Kid

This born sportsman (or woman) is the one with the highest energy levels. Keep them from bouncing off the walls with distractions such as outdoorsy gear and sporting equipment.

3. Sports Direct, No Fear 28-inch skateboard, RM49

The Wild Child

The Wild Child is chaotic to the core. Let them fight their own battles with blaster guns or live life on the edge sleeping in the mouth of a shark (sleeping bag of course!).

2. Universal Fitness & Leisure, Puddle Jumper 3D in Orca and Octopus, RM139 (bottom left)
