Gift Ideas- best gifts for certain ages
 
We have bought all our kids gifts for Christmas already but I'm having trouble with idea for when people ask.

I was thinking it would be nice to have a thread for everyone to look at for ideas. Also what toys are great at what ages. Like when will they enjoy/get the most out of that toy.

Examples:
2yr, girl- tea set (give brands or styles you recommend)
4yr, boy- playmobil castle
6yr, boy- Nintendo DS

Make sense? Anyone want to play?

Any toddler (1-3ish) - play food/kitchen stuff, blocks, mega blocks
Preschool-early elementary girls - littlest pet shop stuff, squinkies
Boy of any age - cars, trains
Girl 1-2 yrs - baby doll and accesories (blanket, cradle, bottle)

I came here looking for a post JUST like this! We have NO IDEA what to get the kids for Christmas. They have enough toys (not too many, just the right amount) and only play with a few things anyways so even though they want one of every item from the toy catalog, we know that in reality, they would lose interest in those toys in a short time.

3-5 (that's the category we are in right now) : any sort of truck, construction vehichle, emergency vehicle, monster trucks, Army men (or the like, minus the accessories!), wooden blocks, Lego Duplos, and trains!

Toddler- a dress up box. We are going to do DS a cowboy, fireman, pirate etc in a box. He is always pretending.
