2018 Holiday Shopping Guide For Four Year Olds
In previous years, I complied holiday shopping guides for when my son was two and when he was three. Before creating this next list, I looked back, and I believe many of those items are still relevant, especially the Thomas table which my son periodically still uses to this day.
However, he’s older now, and his wants have changed. Gone are the days of Thomas and now we have ushered in the days of Lightning McQueen. With that in mind, and with other considerations, here is a list of items I do recommend for a four year for Christmas:
- Balance Bike with Helmet
- Boogie Board – not for the beach, one to write with
- Slot Cars
- Cars 3 Service Station or Mack’s Mobile Play Set
- Remote Control Car
- Thomasville Speedway Portable Set (bonus points for also being storage)
- Florida 500 Speedway
- Lego Juniors Sets
- Lego Table or Folding Table
- Board Games
- Baseball Mitt
- Knee Hockey Set
- Portable Soccer Net and Soccer Ball
- Football Uniform Set and Nerf Football
- Paw Patrol Air Patroller
- Paw Patrol Sea Patroller
- Pig & Elephant Books
- Pete the Cat Books
- Pigeon Books
- Amed Rosario (or other player) Shirsey
For many of the aforementioned items, I included the Amazon link for ease of use. I did this for two reasons: (1) everyone has access to Amazon; and (2) this late in the process, you have a better chance of getting something off the internet instead of at a store. If you haven’t purchased the items yet, comparison shop to the best of your ability.
While I hope this list is helpful, we should always to remember to tailor what we buy for your child’s interests. This is a large reason why I have only relisted one item from this year’s Top 25 Christmas Toys.
As always, please remember while you’re shopping, pick up a toy, no matter how small and donate it.
