    Default Gift ideas for my nearly 4yo boy this christmas please

    Hi,

    As the title suggests, I'm struggling with a gift idea. Ideally I'd like something active to enjoy this summer, but we have a pretty well stocked back yard (sandpit, trampoline, mini climbing thingy).

    Possibly looking at building him a treehouse, but can't spend too much (probably only up to 200). Really looking for a main present (I already have him stocking gifts).

    Any suggestions welcome, apologies if this is similar to any other posts...

    Thanks in advance!

    I got my son one of the quad bike things from kmart. He loves it. Got his sister a buggy but she never uses it as she prefers the bike.
    Other things...a fish tank set up? Just get one fish and take him to chose the rest.
    Skateboard with knee pads etc.

    How about a kite?? It gets them outdoors, the one string ones are easy to handle and they're such a novelty!

    We got 3 year old DS a jumping castle/water slide from target ($299) for his birthday last month - he loves it! As does his 9 and 11 year old nieces , they have used it nearly every day since he got it if its a sunny day!

    Eliijah's Mum, is that the orange and yellow one? We have been looking at that for our two boys and wondering how strong it is ? They are nearly 6 and 3. Do you need good water pressure to operate it?

    Yes! Action Air - We just connected our normal hose and no problem at all - there is a water spout that sprays at the top of the slide and out of the cannon at the bottom of the slide and the water fills up the little pool at the bottom - it inflates in less than a minute, it really is cool! I've had 6 toddlers on it at once and about 4 x 9 year olds - it's weight limit is 135kg - DH and his BIL have both been down the slide as has the dog !
