This caution does not apply to table games and machines with control.
It is not necessary to present the child on the eleventh birthday and with money: after all, this is an «adult» present. An exception is permissible for a close circle — parents, godparents, grandparents, if the child himself asked to add a small amount to an independent acquisition of what he dreamed and what he saved money for. Being independent, the boy of this age achieves recognition of his importance, and therefore you need to take into account his interests and hobbies when choosing a gift.
