    Default What does your 5 year old love right now?

    We have a 5 year old and a 1 year old and finding most of the toys we have now are getting a little young for our eldest.

    Interested to hear what your little girls around the same age are loving right now. She seems to have got bored of her barbies for now, has quite a bit of littlest pet shop stuff and a bit of shopkins which i might add to but not much else. She loves drawing and crafty type stuff so anything along those lines you can recommend would be helpful, but im a bit lost as to what to buy her, want to get her a few pressies

    My 5 year old DD doesn't play with toys much. She loves to dress up, put on some music and dance around her room. She loves craft and books also. We do the adult colouring in books together for hours. She has a whole lot of toys that sit in her room not being played with - must start getting rid of some.

    My 5 year old DD loves make up (she has one of those large barbie doll heads she can put make up on and do hair or she's allowed to put it on herself if we aren't going anywhere)
    She loves to make jewellery or little crafty cupcake things. Anything along the lines of craft/making - there are lots in the shops. Latest was a card and envelope making set
    Also loves her scooter!

    My cousin started to really get into lego around 6.

    What about those lead light kits, or those kits you can make gel paint pictures to stick on the windows (I don't know what they are actually called sorry). Spirographs?

    There are so many crafty kits out there. Any of them may make a good start. They have different mediums and different themes, and can be found in places like kmart/target/big w, national geographic, toys r us, riot, etc.

    Thanks, yeah im not big on lots of plastic toys either, she has a few dress ups already which she loves so may get a few more. Only thing thats a plastic toy i might buy more of are shopkins as she still often sits and plays with them.

    Got her a scooter recently which she uses yes (forgot about that)

    I know kmart have lots of crafty type things, might have a look in there this week.

    Our 5 year old DD absolutely loves her Lego Friends. It's great because there are heaps of different sets that suit all different budgets/occasions.

    NO 5 year old here, but I'd highly recommend Lego. Their newest Lego City releases are actually starting to target both girls and boys, thankfully.

    My 6yo dd loves craft too. Kmart has some really good craft things such as coloured cardboard, paper punch, fancy paper.
    Dd also went through a phase of making all sort of necklaces with beads and elastic.
