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.

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.
