Liam is almost 5 (he will be 5 in February) and the kid LOVES to play! Like most kids his age, he has a lot of interests and that translates into a lot of toys. We have a lot that he uses the most and I wanted to share the best toys for 4-5 year old boys because I am constantly getting questions about what boys this age are into!
Best Toys For 4-5 Year Old Boys
Best Outside Toys For 4-5 Year Old Boys:
Swing set: This was a COVID purchase and both my kids have gotten a ton of use out of it. They are definitely an investment but you’ll have it for years.
Splash pad: So much easier than packing the kids up and driving somewhere when they only want to splash for a few minutes!
Bounce House: Another splurge but it lasts forever! So great for bad weather days inside too!
Ride On Car: This was a big gift Liam got from my parents for Christmas and he loves driving Charlotte around.
Trucks: Any trucks will do but we get Target $1 spot trucks to play with outside. We also love Green Toys trucks!
Best Inside Toys For 4-5 Year Old Boys:
Pirate Ship: Liam got this for Christmas and it has been a HUGE hit! He played with it at a friend’s house and we get hours of pretend play out of this.
Superheroes: Liam is very into superheroes right now, especially Spiderman. My mom got him a bunch of these action figures for his birthday this year.
Dolls: Yes boys can play with dolls too! Liam and Charlotte love pretending with dolls. We got Liam one when Charlotte was a baby and he still loves it.
Legos: My SIL and BIL got Liam a huge Lego kit for Christmas and it was a big hit with him!
Magnatiles: These are perfect because they are magnetic and stick together. The pretend play options are endless!
Board Games: We are just getting into board games with Liam. So far he loves Candy Land and Hungry Hungry Hippos.
Puzzles: He is a big puzzle fan and any 48 plus piece puzzle will work at this age!
Kitchen: We have a play kitchen both my kids LOVE! It’s the Kid Kraft one and we have tons of different play food for it too!
The Nugget: This was Liam’s birthday gift from us this year and it’s awesome! If you haven’t heard of the nugget you need to check it out!
Amazon Fire Tablet: This is the tablet Liam has and we mostly use it for rest time, car trips, or learning games.
