    Default What are you buying your 4 or 5 year old DS for Xmas?

    I'm thinking of getting DS a bike this Xmas, but I need some more ideas as my mum will no doubt be wanting to know what to get DS this year too.

    What's on your list for your 4 or 5 year old DS?

    My DS will be approx 4.5 and he is obsessed with Star Wars. Not that we have ever shown him the movie I think he gets it from kindy friends! So probably some Star Wars Lego, another costume to add to his ever expanding collection, superhero action figures etc. We're also getting him a Wahu cricket set and wave tube as we spend a lot if time at beach/pool. He got a bike for his 4th birthday and loves it.

    We're buying DS1 (5) and DS2 (3) a trampoline. Santa is bringing them books, clothes and a few small knick knacks (not letting him get credit for the trampoline). DS1 is getting a remote control monster truck from MIL. DS2 is getting a transformer that I know DS1 will want to play with. I also got DS1 a toy dog from Australian Geographic: it's joined together with screws and nuts and bolts and comes with tools to take it apart and put it back together. He's always been fascinated by how things work. I'm also thinking of asking Mum to get him a solar system set to hand from his ceiling, he loves talking about planets and the sun. I'm also considering putting a basketball ring on the list to try and improve his hand eye coordination.

    ETA: just remembered, DS1 has asked for walkie talkies for him and DS2

    DS will be 4 in January.

    We are getting him a bike, Lego and some family board games like snakes and ladders and books.

    My 5-year-old is Lego-obsessed too. Not wanting to create a panic, but on Monday's "Have You Been Paying Attention", they said that toy stores in Australia are predicting a "shortage of Lego this Xmas"...so don't leave it too late!

    We have his fourth birthday first so I haven't even thought about Christmas yet! I have bought him a ninja turtles electric toothbrush, a new DVD for the car when we go to the beach (day after his birthday), beach set, big water gun and a couple of books.

    My boy is four today so haven't quite got to Christmas but we gave him a doctor kit, a set of Meg and Mog books, some PJs, some playdough, a bubble wand and a Lego jnr set.
    He's Spider-Man obsessed so mum is getting him some Spidey lego, a new Spidey mask and a few other bits and pieces.

    My son is getting a scooter from Santa but one of the micro ones. Expensive but worth it. No other scooter even comes close. I've also got him a minecraft Lego on layby and an iPad. And a snorkel as we are going on a cruise 2 days after Christmas. That is it!
