4-5 year old gift guide

A list of age-appropriate toys for the child around four (roughly 3.5 to 4.5yrs). I tried to choose a variety of toys and books, keeping in mind that often children of the same age will be at different developmental stages. Also, this is just a guide with some ideas, each toy is just an example, there are similar ones in other shapes, sizes and materials that are just as age-appropriate. Please note that this list builds on the 3-year-old one. I repeated some items here, but all the pretend play items found on the earlier list are still appropriate and fun for this age group.

Mobilo. Set of 120 pieces. Great manipulative toy, very engaging and totally open-ended, each child will create completely different structures. Builds small muscles, enhances eye-hand coordination, perfects spatial relations... This is a good starter set, but be aware that it will soon not have enough pieces for all they will want to build.

Mobilo® Large Set (Approx. 120 pieces)

A nice large set of pattern blocks minus the pattern cards which I feel only frustrate young children and limit the possibilities of what they can create (although they can be a spring board for some children). On their own, pattern blocks can be used by each child at their own level to create endless patterns.
