Gift Ideas for 4 & 5 year olds!

Gift Ideas for 4 & 5 year olds!

During quarantine, I've spent a lot of time searching for new toys, games, puzzles, activities to entertain my 4 1/2 year old son.  As things are beginning to open up again, I'm stocking up on gifts for future birthday parties (socially distanced of course!) and compiled a list of my favorite finds!

Hape Wooden Domino Set - I discovered this amazing toy thanks to Prime Lovin (they always have the best Amazon recommendations!) They had a flash deal on amazon so I made an impulse buy and they arrived the next day. Since they've arrived, my kids have played with them every day. Great for STEM development and hours of entertainment!


Zingo - My husband and I are both board game people, so we love finding games we can play with our son. We have the Zingo numbers edition but want to also get the original as well so our 2 1/2 year old can play too! Great gift for boys and girls!



Bob Books - Our neighbor recommended these books to us and we're obsessed. The books have 4 letters in each story and kids can quickly gain confidence with reading! Our son now asks to practice his Bob Books every day! They're super inexpensive and small so perfect to throw in the bag for a trip to the park.

Kids Digital Camera - My kids love taking pictures with our phones so we got Gt Gavin a kids digital camera for Christmas last year. He has so much fun taking pictures and making fun designs with them. We also gifted our neighbor's son a polaroid camera for his 4th birthday which he loved, but the film can get a little pricey if your kiddo loves taking lots of pics!

Magna-Qubix - We just discovered these at a playdate with a friend and immediately ordered! They are 3D magnatile cubes that have a small footprint, perfect for tossing in the diaper bag! Definitely purchasing for future birthday gifts!


Transformers - Growing up with sisters, Transformers were not on my radar until my son discovered them. He loves transforming them and playing with them for hours. We've gifted them to friends and the kids love bringing them to play with at restaurants and the park! 


State of Play Kids - We love gifting our cozy layers for birthdays! Perfect for the whole fam!
