Tricky 5 year old boy...
12

Piccalino3 · 29/09/2021 00:17

What to buy? I have a birthday and Christmas present coming up to buy, spend about £30-40 on each. Not really into anything, doesn't play with toys too much but likes lions, tigers and dinosaurs and has 2 older siblings. I'm stuck. Any suggestions please?

A zookeeper experience at your local zoo? Many offer these where children can shadow the keeper and prep the food for the animals etc.

Or maybe some dino pjs and some lion/tiger themed snacks.

Robert Sabuda's Encyclopaedia Prehistorica is an absolutely stunning pop up book about dinosaurs, if you think he has the maturity not to tear off the pop-ups.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I've gone with the pop up book and the Dino toy for Christmas and using the lights idea for birthday. Also bought these for another boy I have to buy for. These threads are great as I'd never have thought of these. Any more ideas are welcome too!
