DS will be 4.5 at Christmas and he seems to have outgrown loads of his toys and I'm stuck on what to get I don't want to get things that he'll grow out of super fast so what are your 5&6 year olds asking for or their favourite things atm?

Ds got loads of imaginext last year (4 almost 5) and he still loves and plays with it all. He also likes Ben 10, yo Kai watch, Pokémon, and hatchimals and little live pets

I should add he is 5 now and will be 6 in January

My DS is 6 will be 7 in February, last Christmas he got a hot wheels track set and cars, and has asked for another this year. He got imaginext when he was 4 nearly 5 and still plays with it. Last few Christmases he has got various bits from paw patrol.
The mashams figures and lego have also been popular with ds for the last few years.

Lego and playmobil for my five year old..

6yo ds wants some "cool trousers". That's it.

Lego is usually a good bet.

My dd1 who has never really liked girly things at 5/6 liked
Comics - beano, adventure time
Busy books - 12 figures and playmat in a book comes on loads of different characters.
Dressing up
Ikea tent
Lost my name book (there's a lovely willy wonka one now)
Nintendo 2ds and games (warioware, yokai watch and mario kart are her favourite ones)
Kindle fire tablet
Drawing - art tray from argos gets used daily (was around £10) and not just for drawing, does lego on it and occasionally has dinner!!
Moshi monsters and other similar small blind bag type toys
Build a bear (she's desperate for the new pokemon ones and guardians of the galaxy)
Lego - but a big box to make her own creations.
Playing on the family nintendo wii - smooth moves, mario party, just dance disney, mario and sonic at the Olympic games. Can pick up a second hand one for around £20 now and games are dirt cheap on cex/ebay smile

He wants transformers, super wings stuff. I'm thinking of getting him magnetic blocks.

NotTheDuchessOfCambridge Wed 18-Oct-17 18:29:56

Magnaformers and slime.

Walkie Talkies and a scooter are what my 5-year-old (6 in January) wants.

Also don't be too quick to get rid of things, my dd's have often gone back to things eg happyland: the figures are never used now but they seem to go back to the buildings. My girls are 5 and nearly 9 smile

DS wants just about every hot wheels set, and that light up track.

Equimum Wed 18-Oct-17 19:51:37

DS1 will be 5 immediately after Christmas. For Christmas and his birthday, he has asked for Switch & Go dinosaurs, Schleich dinosaurs, Hotwheels sets, more Magformers, Lego and a two wheel scooter.

DonkeyPunch88 Wed 18-Oct-17 19:59:49

My littlest lad is 5 and wants anything and everything Star Wars related grin

RatOnnaStick Wed 18-Oct-17 20:02:16

DS2 who will be 5 in early Jan has asked for the Lego high speed train. He's getting a bigger scooter for his birthday.

Thanks! That's so helpful, he's only asked for Lego he's really getting into it now but I wanted a few other things. He has loads of hot wheels cars so the track seems like a good idea. He's just started watching power rangers so I managed to get 2 figures in the Sainsbury's sale too.

Walkie Talkies
Stomp rocket
Anything Spider-Man
