Part Three in this series: Toys for Little Kids Ages 3+
Three to five year olds have a wonderful array of toys available to them. At three, kids can now be trusted with small parts. But they've also developed a wonderful imagination and a strong sense of their own potential. Suddenly, it seems like they can't grow up fast enough.
Encourage their imagination with toys like the Hape Cash Register so they can play store. Or Holztiger wooden animals, so they can build a story-filled zoo. Hobby Horses and puppets encourage dramatic play. Dollhouses and Brio wooden train sets are also perfect gifts--we recommend each for both boys and girls.
Toys like the Kazam Balance Bike, which will put them on an early track to bike riding, will boost their confidence in their big kid abilities. Likewise, toys like the Hape Tool Bench, preschool games from eeboo or Peaceable Kingdom, and floor puzzles will teach valuable life skills through play.
This is truly a fun age to be a kid. Try a few different types of toys and see which ones they like best.
