4tunate Holiday Gift Guide: Age 4 – 5

image

Just in time for you last minute shoppers, the 4tunate Holiday Gift Guide for Ages 4-5!  Not that I would know anything about that *cough, cough*…

I’ve finally compiled some of your top recommended gifts for this age as well as some of my personal favorites for this awesome age group.  It’s such a fun age to buy for as they are growing and becoming so independent. Their imaginations are simply wonderful! 

(These items link to my Amazon.com affiliate, but feel free to shop around and get the best deal! Most of these are eligible for Free Shipping. No one paid me to endorse these products, it’s hopefully just a help to you!)

1. Games! (Prices Vary)

image

I’m so glad my quads are getting old enough for games!  Great game picks for this age include: Candyland, Memory, Cranium Hullabaloo, Dr. Seuss What’s in the Cat’s Hat?,and Hi Ho Cherry-O. I love this First Games Set (Pictured) that combines all the “classics”.

2. LeapFrog TAG Reading System ($19.99 Sale) or Vtech Bugsby Reading System ($27.46)

image

These have been highly highly recommended for our crew.  I know you all must love them for teaching early reading skills in an entertaining way!

3. Pillow Pets ($14.87 Sale)

image

So I don’t totally “get it”, but nevertheless they are a HIT with kids, and with moms too!

4. LEGOS (Prices Vary by Set)

image

Remember the perfect windows, flowers, and pegged grass?  The possibilities are endless with a box of LEGOS.

5. Alex Toys My Giant Busy Box ($13.99 Sale)

image

They had me at “Busy”. =)  I also love the new Crayola Color Wonder Stamp A Story.

6. Fisher-Price Kid-Tough Digital Camera ($24.99 Sale)

image

I can totally see my boys fighting over this one!  I love that it’s “boy proof” and it allows them to explore photography at an early age! 

7. Radio Flyer Kid’s Wheelbarrow ($19.99 Sale)

image

How cute is this?  I know my little gardeners would love this for hauling things around the yard. It’s a great price, marked down over 50%.

8.Alphie ($34.00 Sale)

image

Educational fun via a cute robot named “Alphie”. So glad they brought him back for another generation!

9.Melissa & Doug Deluxe Magnetic Responsibility Chart ($9.99 Sale) 

image

I’m not sure if this is adaptable for quadruplets or not, but I LOVE the idea!  I’ve never been disappointed with a Melissa & Doug product!

 10.Power Wheels Smart Car ($199.99 Sale)

image

Finally, if your Christmas budget is more flexible this season and you’re looking for an “environmentally-friendly” gift, how about a kid’s sized Smart car for two?  I’m thinking it might be close to life-size.

Any gift suggestions you’d like to add for this age group?

Don’t forget to check these gift guides for birth to age 3 as well!

    Emma is a fan of the pillow pet… and I don’t get it, either. She has the unicorn. 🙂

    One little game addition…. we LOVE Mickey Mouse Yahtzee (they have Toy Story Yahtzee out right now, too). It’s a game that my kids love but that is actually enjoyable for me, too (unlike Candy Land)! 🙂

    Target in their stationary aisle has cardboard houses, castle, or a rocket ship. They are about 4 ft tall and the kiddos can color them. The best part is they are only 14.99!

    Whole-heartedly agree with you on the board games and Legos! My daughter loves to play games (her twin brother will play for about 5 minutes and then gets bored still though), especially her Princess Yahtzee and Mickey Mouse Uno. Legos are a HUGE hit with all 3 kids – even my 1 (almost 2) year old! (who thankfully is NOT prone to putting things like tiny legos in his mouth!). All 3 will build and stack and rebuild all evening with Legos! Santa is definitely bringing more (they are currently playing with Daddy’s old box!)

    Have you ever gotten the fisher price preschool games? I get them at Target. They are great for little ones. I am a retired preschool teacher and these games are the best for young children when they are first learning to play games.
