What makes a good present for 5 year old boys and girls
By the age of five, children will be at school and enjoying playing to learn. Part of this learning will no doubt involve new experiences including role-play and make-believe games. Five-year-olds are very social and enjoy playing games with other kids. There’s also a new level of co-operation with others and they may be getting into toy crazes and finding their own interests through exploration.
