Are you looking forthe best Christmas gifts for 4 year old boys? This age is all about action figures, coloring, books to read, and off course matchbox cars and trucks. My son is of this age, though he loves dinosaurs, Spiderman and any books about animals. From me observing his school friends, the boys are mostly into action figures, so anything to do with Spiderman, Ninja Turtles, Skylanders will going to be a hit with boys at this age and make some of the best toys for 4 year old boys.
Below are some cool Christmas gift ideas for 4 to 5 years old boys:
Learning To Read Book Sets
Children Book Gift Ideas For 4 Year Olds
At 4 years old, kids start to learn to read. I still prefer buying traditional books. I am not fond of seeing small kids reading on iPads or Kindles, really. There are numerous scientific studies which shows that kids learn better the traditional ways, that means from a book. Being Christmas, you cannot go wrong with a book gift set for 4-6 age.
And, depending what your son/nephew likes, you can find many such book sets on Amazon. Barnes and Nobles is another one, though my local one doesn’t have that many options. I like the Dr. Seuss book collection below and the the Little House Big Adventures by Lara Ingals Wider.
Another big hit author in our home is Mo Willems. They are hilarious and with very well made illustrations, my boy loves all Mo Willems books. I cannot recommend it enough. Boys will especially love reading Mo Willems books.
Spiderman Toys For 4 Year Old Boy
Character Toys For Boys
There are many licensed Spiderman toys out there, but at 4 years old, boys love to act as Spiderman. For this reason the best gift idea for a 4 to 5 years old is to just buy him a Spiderman Action Figure. Below is one that is available on Amazon, it’s 12 inch tall and looks like web-slinging crime-fighter. You can complement it with Motorized Spider Force Web Blaster. He will have hours of pretend play fun. Obviously, you can replace Spiderman actiob figures with any other popular action figure character toy.
Lego Toys For 4 Years Old Boys
Best Building Toys For 4 Year Olds
Buying Legos for 4 years old is a little bit tricky. At this age, their fine motor skills are not well developed, so buying these small multi-pieces Legos is going to be a tricky option for them. They will need help from you to assembly them. However, I found that the Duplos work very good with my little one. Boys being boys, you cannot go wrong with some Duplo Batmans or any other famous character action figure Legos. I love the Lego Duplo Superheros. Also, introducing him to Lego Juniors is a good idea if he is already very good at building blocks.
