    Default Gifts for 5year old?

    I'm totally stumped with what to buy Ds for Christmas. We dont buy much plastic stuff, he loves educational things. I've so far bought him a few books, some nice collared t-shirts & a puzzle.

    He already has lots of outside toys/bike/skateboard... Also has lots of lego so were giving that a miss this year. Relatives are getting him musical instruments.

    Only thing I can think of is getting a scooter or animal documentary as he loves david etiburough (sp?) ? Any ideas??

    My 5 DS loves his PowerWing so the scooter is a good choice. I have also bought board games and even considered a camera but may leave that until his birthday. We are on the Lego ride so can't help you with much else sorry.

    The kids at my preschool loved these! I loved the marble run and would spend ages playing with it with the kids lol.

    My boys are 7 and 4 and love it.

    At big w they have some science kits. One that caught my attention was a Smithsonian crystal growing kit.

    What about having a look in Australian geographic or those types of shops? Things like bug catchers were always a hit with my nephew at that age...
