I totally love this age range and with a 4-year-old well and truly excited about the prospect of the festive season I have got masses of ideas running round my head right now and to be fair I have enough for about 4 lists!
If you are looking for Minion Madness there is a separate Gift Guide on Minion items over there.
We recently reviewed this fantastic addition to the Imaginext toy range and it left us all really impressed. Since reviewing the DC Super Friends Transforming Batcave it has been a key piece of play for Joshua and he was totally bested with it with its working lift and action figures! 2, Nintendo ‘New’ 3Ds XL Console
We reviewed the New 3DS Console earlier in the year when they were launched into the UK and we loved it from the off, with is quirky retro feel and its updated graphics, however the XL version would be super on my stubby fingers and rubbish eyesight …I am also loving the colour options available this festive season and if you want more than just a console there are lots of bundles available!
3, Cars Gear Up McQueen
Another of my reviews this year lead me to this lovely Cars Gear up McQueen and have loved it ever since, its taken some battering as Joshua is fairly heavy-handed so it’s certainly a toy that will hits the robust check list. It is also a toy of many faces with its ability to change its outside casings, almost like Mr Potato Head but a Lightening McQueen instead .. Genius!
4, Mario Chess Collectors Edition
Who says kids games have to be all about electronics! Why not teach them the art of chess … after all with this lovely Mario Chess Collection Edition is could certainly be fun to look at too! With a total Mario fan in our house I think this might have to be bought and Chess lessons to be undertaken … I adore chess and teaching my Son would be epic
Most of my regular readers know just how much my little fella is Minion obsessed, hence the full Minion Gift Guide I did a few days ago. This lovely Despicable Me 2 Inflatable Radio Control Dave Minion is so super cute and it’s the one thing on the list I have yet to get our little Minion
6, Lego Junior
We have loved out building journey with Lego Duplo, However now at age 4 he is ready for the next stage and it seems Lego have it covered with the Lego Junior range with its seamless transition to Classic Lego, the junior range is ideal for those aged 4-7 that are staring on their creative journeys with the ‘proper’ bricks. The junior range is specifically targeted for small fingers and although it can be bought in packs they are not too technical but still playable even off plan!
7, WOW Flip ‘n’ Tip Fred
We are massive lovers of the WOW toy range having discovered them earlier this year, although aimed at 1.5 – 5 years these lovely ranges really will last beyond … with it’s motorised features and no need ever for batteries all WOW toys are easy on the parents long-term pockets! Flip ‘n’ Tip Fred is super fun and comes with bins and people to there is lots of fun to be had! s
Another of the WOW Toys range, Dexter The Digger comes with a WOW secret button and again along with Flip ‘n’ Tip Fred he runs on a fab motorised engine that requires no batteries! So what other toys would be on your little fella’s wish list for this festive season?
