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?

Re: Gift Ideas- best gifts for certain ages

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!
