Five-year-old boys are at an age where they need toys that are a bit more advanced than toddler toys, but they aren’t quite ready for big kids toys yet. They need toys that will allow them to learn about the world while having fun but that won’t limit them by being too simple.
All of the toys below are made for kids who are about five years old. They toys are geared more towards a boy’s interests, but if your girl is a bit of a tomboy, there’s no reason why she wouldn’t enjoy them too. These toys are advanced enough to keep a five-year-old’s interest while still being easy enough to play with and have a good time.
VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch
Smart watches are all the rage right now. What kid wouldn’t want his own?
This little watch is made for kids who are from four to seven years old.
It has a little camera in it that not only allows kids to take pictures but they can also alter them by adding fun effects and boarders. It has a voice recorder than can change the sound of their voice to make them sound silly. (That’s always good for a giggle.) It also has four games on it.
Oh, and it tells time too.
