Mongolian kids start going to school proper aged six and stay in school until the age of eighteen.
After school, Mongolians play in 'Children's Squares' in front of their apartments. A children's square often includes a basketball court, sandpit and a small park. In fact, if you want to discover the real Mongolia, you'll find these squares a great place to meet people.
Unfortunately these days you're just as likely to find Mongolian children playing video games in the nearest Internet café!
If you visit nomads on your trip, it's considered polite to bring gifts for their children.
Mongolian children like the same things as kids around the world. But avoid gifts which require batteries or refillsthey won't be able to buy them.
You can gift babies and young children a soft toy; for older children small action figures, toy cars, notebooks, color pencils (make sure you include a pencil sharpener) and so on.
A gift I have given that was well received was a wind up torcha very useful and practical gift for nomads.
