It is the season for giving gifts once again. As you are making your list, you will have to imagine the recipient your present and what they will make a lot of sense to give to them. While any gift that you give with all your heart should be good, it is also vital to consider what will be useful to the recipient.
It will be extra tricky if you are giving a gift to a child–say, a 4-year-old–because they have just started pre-school and change likes, depending on what they see from their classmates. This is especially true for boys. Girls are more predictable with dolls and art materials, while boys have a wide range of likes and interests.
The best toys 4-year-old boys are still the fun, safe, and educational ones. Therefore, here is your guide to getting the best gift for 4 Yr old boy and the benefits that they may bring.
Robots And Remotes
Robots are great and almost never run out of style. They are usually created around kid shows or popular shows to help kids relate to them better. Just creating them after well-known shows help a 4-year-old with memory and recall. What is the name of that character? What does that character do in the show? You will know that they have recall and they are exercising the part of their brain for memory because they may be repeating the words, dialogues, or scenarios from the shows as they play.
An example of a robot toy that you can find it the market is the “Playskool Heroes Transformers Rescue Bots Roar and Rescue Bumblebee Figure.” It is a robot that looks like Bumble Bee from the Transformers movie and then transforms into a Dinobot Raptor. As a the arms and legs are moved to form one figure to another, the 4-year-old can practice analytical and problem solving skills.
Some robot toys may not be fashioned after famous shows but after pets or animals, such as dog, cat, fox, bird, penguin, bunny, horse or unicorn, turtle, etc. These toys also give a good exercise on recall and teach the 4-year-old the names of different animals. Some toys even simulate the movement of the actual animals or mimic the sound that they make.
An example of a good animal robot get for a 4-year-old is the “Electronic Pet Dog Interactive Puppy – Robot Harry Responds to Touch, Walking, Chasing and Fun Activities” available in Amazon. This toy closely resembles a Dalmatian with its spots, is white, and has endearing blue eyes. This robot dog is able to walk and bark and has built-in speaker for music. This robot can soothe a 4-year-old, stimulate child development, and aid in emotional development.
Blocks rock as gifts to 4-year-old boys. They are a good gift to give because not only do blocks help develop creativity. They also help develop motor skills, problem solving, imagination, expression and spatial reasoning.
Probably the most popular blocks toys for a 4-year-old boy are the Mega Blocks. They come in different colors to train the child’s eye to see the different colors, group them or put them separate from one another. The blocks also come in different shapes and sizes. Mega Blocks are several sizes bigger than the regular Lego blocks so they are not a choking hazard.
Mega Blocks helps a child develop motor skills, which refer to the precise movement of the muscles in the body. So, if the 4-year-old would raise his arm to put blocks on top of one another, he is able to exercise control on his muscle and get it or bring it to exactly where he wants the block to go.
Among the other benefits of playing with Mega Blocks is developing creativity and imagination. A 4-year-old can build a city, figure, structure, etc. from Mega Blocks. He can either follow an example or create everything from memory or simply from imagination.
