Every Christmas, between what we give them, what Santa brings in their stockings, gifts from family, friends, teachers, second cousins, twice removed and long lost aunts, my children probably get nearly 100 new things. By the new year, 90% of them have been forgotten. What follows is a list of gifts for 4-7 year olds that my children actually carried on playing with after the excitement of unwrapping them wore off.

Straw and Connectors Building Set
I bought this for my kids the year they were 3 and 5, they are now 7 and 9 and it still gets played with from time to time. They use it to build towers, make forts and create robot suits.
Magnetic Building Tiles
These used to be really expensive but have come right down in price over the last few years. The kids spend ages building with these and they are usually the first thing that comes out when they have friends round. You can a,so keep adding to them each year to allow them to build more complicated stuff.
Girl Child was given a Paw Patrol walkie talkie set when she was about 3 and both kids loved it, so much so that I recently replaced them a more grown up set which we plan to use for camping in the summer too.
Dobble is a card game that tests your ability to match icons on the cards quicker than the other players. We all love playing this as a family because the youngest as just as likely to win as the oldest.
I know, I know, you don’t want to increase the noise levels in your house any further but my kids really do love their guitars. They regularly set up there own little band, often using these microphones which they also love.
My kids love all of their VTech products but may favourite is the watch. The kids love playing the games, in particular the one that mimix Pokemon go so gets them moving around. They also love taking photos and videos on them. Girl Child is desperate for the VTech Phone but it’s a bit out of our price range.
LCD Writing Tablet
Girl Child was always really found of her magnetic drawing board so when she outgrew it this seemed like the natural next step. She loves the fact that where she draws changes colour and makes me take photos of her favourites which is at least easier to store than her paper drawings!
No list of gifts for 4-7 year olds would be complete without Lego. While we usually buy sets that are themed to whatever there current interests are, in reality it all just gets added to the main box and used to make their own inventions.
So, if you want to get some longevity out of your Christmas presents this year, those are my suggestions for gifts for 4-7 year olds. You could also use them as sibling gifts for your children to give each other.
