Toys for 4 Year Olds

Toys for 4 year olds
What toys do 4-year olds play with? Here’s  a small selection of unique toys for four year olds. If you can’t find what you are looking for here, swing over to my full range of toys for this age group here.

A Wooden Laptop

Wooden Laptop with Magnetic Chalk Board and Letters from Small Foot Design Toys

Bring pretend play scenarios to a whole new level with this gorgeous wooden laptop. The screen doubles as a magnetic blackboard and the keys are magnets. As your child grows, they’ll be able to form words using the keys. It comes with chalk, a duster and a wooden smart phone.

Eduludo Shapes

Djeco - Eduludo Shapes - STEM toy

Recreate the images using the wooden shapes or make some pictures or patterns of your own. This Eduludo Shapes activity is great for encouraging free play and creativity.

Numbers and Letters

Children this age love learning so toys that help with numeracy and literacy can go down well. ‘See and Spell’ is a set of wooden boards with pictures and cut outs of letter shapes. Your child has to find the right letter shapes from the pile to fit into the boards. It’s a beautiful wooden toy.

Eduludo Sticks

Eduludo Sticks is a really fun activity for children that love order and figuring things out. They can play it on their own or with friends. The aim of the activity is to place the correct length stick on the board to make a picture.

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt Box of Puzzles

This box of puzzles feature images from the popular children’s book ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt‘. Each puzzle has a different number of pieces so they get harder for your child.

Magnetic Patterns

Again, this is a great activity for helping your child learn to sit still and practice their fine motor skills in a fun way. Your child needs to put the right shape and colour pieces on the magnetic pattern board to match the picture or they can design their own patterns with the pieces. Each piece is magnetic so they stay where they are put.

Firefighters Story Set

Janod - Firefighters Story Play Set

The imagination of a four year old is amazing and often it’s the simplest toys that will get the imagination going the most. This is a small firefighters set with a fire truck, people and accessories. Your child can create so many different stories using these figures.

Collages for 3-5 Year Olds

This lovely set from Djeco is perfect for a creative child. It introduces textures and shapes to make fun pictures with.

If buying a box set is too big and you think they’d prefer a few smaller crafty bits, then these knight stickers would be lovely.

Doctor Sets

Pretend play is still huge with this age group and pretending to be a doctor can be great fun. I stock some really lovely (and very popular) doctor’s sets. The Small Foot Design one is here and the Djeco one can be found here
