Both grandparents are asking for ideas and I don't have a clue! Ds says he wants everything he sees in every commercial hmm so I'm struggling for proper ideas. He has just had a bike for his birthday and already has a scooter, so those naturally 'big' presents are gone.

Any ideas? What are you getting your 4 year old?

Playmobil? The sort of present where people can spend quite a lot or not so much according to what they can afford and sets can be added to on other occasions.

ds got a worm farm! great combo worms, dirt and digging plus something we have to do together (or rather dh and him I hate worms)

I like the idea of something to do together.

What sort of games are out for 4 year olds? Board games I mean.

my ds's have hungry hippos, diego and spiderman find the pairs, Bob the builder snakes and ladders (giant one on a mat), frustration (but it's got a new name now - better when they turn 5 as you have to count for them and it can take forever and the older ds gets impatient) heaps of others but those are the favourites at the moment

we rae in same position, and are thinking more along the lines of a bag for his footie boots (ds is 5), horseshoe magnet,bug hunting kit, kerplunk, mouse trap game, magnifying glass, lego power miners....try brightminds.co.uk, they have some unusual ideas.

crazy chefs and insey winsey spider game (Orchard toys)

Traffic jam game?

My DS would love a pass or vouchers for the local soft play centre, I never take him as I hate it and use the excuse that it is too expensive, and with it being winter it would be a pretty good present.

Or how baout asking them to put the money in his trust fund?

PopUp Pirate
Manic Martians
Orchard Toys games
Connect 4
Hungry Hippos
Playdough
And at 4.5 getting to that stage of liking action figures.
