Toys for 5 Year Olds
BLOCK SETS THAT A 5 YEAR OLD WOULD ENJOY.
5 year olds will play with wooden blocks for long periods of time. They are continuing to advance in structural accuracy and complexity. They add other toys to their blocks adding “pretend” stories of the places they are creating. They have people, animals, cars, army men they like to add to their building and towns. They are noticing detail more, so they use arches, triangles, and wedges more often for “toppers” to their constructions.They also may tend to play with other children more at this age so a good number of wooden blocks is becoming more important for group play. 80-100 blocks is appropriate. A wooden block set is the perfect gift for 5 year olds.
