小朋友 (xiǎo péngyou) versus 小孩儿 (xiǎo háir):

小朋友 (xiǎo péngyou) is often used as a friendly or affectionate way to refer to children. It’s commonly used by adults when speaking to or about children in a polite and endearing manner.

小孩儿 (xiǎo háir) is a more neutral term for a child or kid. It's used in everyday conversation to refer to children without any particular tone of affection.
