Fabulous Gifts for 5-year-olds

K. Hickman "Disco Mom"
The list author says: "I have three children and about a million nieces, nephews, kids'friends, and friends with kids that I give gifts to. To help myself, and anyone else who has trouble keeping the ages and stages straight, I've created gift lists for each age we've gone through - all the things my kids and their friends love at each age."
Original Buddha Board - Master the art of letting go
Original Buddha Board - Master the art of letting go
"A sophisticated, artistic version of the aqua doodle toys.  Our whole family loves this board - it's just paint with water! - but our 5-year-old would sit for long periods painting, blowing/fanning, and painting again.  And when other kids come to our house, they are drawn to it like moths to flame."
Eeboo Life on Earth Matching Game
Eeboo Life on Earth Matching Game
"It was around this age our daughter took an interest in matching/memory games, though many children like them earlier.  We love eeBoo's art and product quality and they make many memory games - animals, faces, fairy tale, etc."
SuperHero ABC
SuperHero ABC
"We're not even into comic books or superheroes at our house be we love this book.  The pictures are bright, clear, eye-catching, and the made-up superheroes for each letter are in most cases hilarious, as are the alliterative descriptions."
Chicken Socks Highlight this Book Activity Book
Chicken Socks Highlight this Book Activity Book
"Many 5-year-olds love activity books, but the same old activities can get old.  We love this creative book that comes with a 5-point hightlighter needed to color on the dark pages.  Highlighters are like taboo, what a thrill to have your own!  Chicken Socks makes some other great activity books, too."
The Milly-Molly-Mandy Storybook
The Milly-Molly-Mandy Storybook
"This book is positively the bees' knees of read-aloud chapter books (especially for girls.)  The stories are mild as can be but because of how well (and cutely!) they are written, we all hung on every word and were so sad when it ended.  Until we decided to read it again."
Toysmith Super Stacking Tops Novelty
Toysmith Super Stacking Tops Novelty
"I admit to no personal experience with these but I'm intrigued and itching to see them in action - who can we give these to?  Sounds like age 5 is the earliest to figure them out but younger kids would like to watch adults spin them."
Spy Gear Micro Spy Kit X-4
Spy Gear Micro Spy Kit X-4
"This is a representative of a whole line of Spy Gear items, like a spy watch, spy night goggles, secret agent briefcase, etc.  Mostly <$20 and mostly popular with the 4-8 crowd, especially boys.  Kinda hard to lose with spy stuff."
