So many great gift ideas! I would love to get a Bright Time Buddies for each one of my kiddos! The Foldable Maxi Scooter is really cool too.
I have the Emoticat Stickers Book and some other books from Ulysses Press, so I’m partial to them. I love books for learning but would also get the GeoSafari Lab Set for learning fun. I like active gifts too like the Micro Kickboard. Really all these would work great for either boys or girls.
Great ideas! My faves are the Glitter Sketch It Nail Art Pens and the Keep Calm and Color On book!
I am loving that lab set!! I was a science lover as a kiddo and would have loved doing experiments!!
Love these ideas! The Blue Orange Games, Wonder Forge Games, Build & Imagine Sets, Bratz, and even more. It’s hard to even choose a favorite!
My son would love the Janod Story Express Circus Wooden Train Set. In fact, I would have loved at as a child, and would probably play with him if we got it.
These are some great ideas! It is so useful to know what things are out there for this age group!
