Using children's money

Q: I'd like to know if someone gives me money and says it's for the kids. Am I allowed to buy them clothes, toys, etc. or must it be put away until they mature?

A: It should be used for their clothing and other needs. You should not purchase toys with their money.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
