Toys for Boys Aged 3 and 4 years
Be inspired in your quest to find the perfect present for a 3 or 4 year old boy, with this list of ideas.
What’s on TV
At this age kids can fall deeply in love with TV characters, so any toy based on their favourites will be a winner. Popular with preschool age children now are:
- Jake and the Neverland Pirates – finally got it’s own toy range this year. Look out especially for the Talking Bucky Pirate Ship playset (pictured).
- Little Charley Bear
- Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
- Mike the Kinight
- Bob The Builder
- Jungle Junction
- Cloud Babies
- Special Agent Oso
- Fireman Sam
- Baby Jake
- Sesame Street – take a look at this new ticklish Elmo toy
You’re never to young for a bit of educational technology.
The new LeapPad2 is suitable from age 3 years and covers evrything from literacy to life skills.
The VTech Switch n Go Dinosaurs were popular last year and continue to sell well. They are like prehistoric Transformers that switch between dinosaur and vehicle mode. The new, large Dino for Christmas 2012 is called Brok the Brachisoaurus (pictured) and he costs around £40. Smaller, cheaper dinosaurs are available.
Anything with wheels
I remember when my sons were this age, pretty much anything with wheels would hold their interest.
A train set will keep them occupied for hours. There are some great sets from Chuggingtin and Thomas & Friends. Take care to research the different types of track available, as once you have bought one set you will get better value by expanding that, than if you switch between ranges.
Also take a look at the new Matchbox Big Boots range, which reminds me a lot of a grown-up version of Weebles.
And the Little Tikes Big Adventures playsets are sturdy and perfectly proportioned for little hands.
For something that will burn up a bit of energy, take a look at the Pumpazing and Pumpaloons games from Drumond Park. Or for quieter, educational games, look up ‘Orchard Toys‘ on Amazon and see their huge range of games, and the great customer reviews that have been left for them.
This is the age that boys love to mimic the adults they see around them. A play kitchen, workbench, doctor’s kit, and emergency services dressing up uniforms will get plenty of use.
