The best gifts for your 3 or 4 year old

Is your child turning 3 or 4 soon? That is gradually becoming a big toddler ūüėČ! At this age, the children are playing together more and more, they go to school and they can already "tarate" a lot ūüėÉ! Your kiddo may still be imitating you a lot and there's quite a bit of room for imagination, yay!

Curious which toys are perfect for every child of 3 and 4 years? Then be sure to read on.


Open ended play

Open-ended play is always a winner. No limits, just play & fun. At this age, a child has a huge imagination, which is why open-ended play is so nice. Your child can decide for himself how the game goes, without an adult determining it.


In addition, open-ended toys broaden the cognitive skills of your mini-me.






Building works fine as a 3-year-old. Does your child also love building towers? Then the magnetic blocks and tiles from Magna-Tiles are definitely a hit. (We even call them the hit of the fall ūüėÉ!)


The Magna Tiles stimulate spatial and technical insight. The transparent colors are very beautiful and give an extra dimension thanks to the light that shines through them. You make the coolest 3D structures with it and it is good for fine motor skills.


The large Modu building blocks are also a hit for the builders! The soft stones are super fun and easy to assemble.


Want to play 'Around the World'? 'The floor is lava'? With Stapelstein's stacking stones, your son or daughter can design their own course! cool!



Way To Play

The flexible¬†WaytoPlay¬†car track is a fantastic toy for any child who loves cars. With the rubber tracks, your child simply designs his/her own car track. You use this on any surface, even in the bath ūüėÉ!


Candylab's super cool retro cars go well with it and just look really nice.





Pretend Play

As with the younger children, a pretend play game is also a big hit with children aged + 3 years. With their considerable imagination they can already imitate an entire game or daily activity of mom or dad. From the age of 3, children really start to play together and they really enjoy it.


A toy kitchen or shop is still a winner for your child.

You can also expand the game with some extras: a wooden scale, for example, to demonstrate the concept of 'heavy' or 'light' or with a cash register and play money to learn counting.

Does your child also act out all kinds of situations? Then a dollhouse is definitely a good move. Decorating the dollhouse, naming the dolls and playing out daily life situations, so much fun!


The Little Dutch dollhouse is super beautiful and comes with a basic set of interior items, but you can always expand it.
