At Mr Fox HQ we believe in giving memorable presents that actually get played with, and these gifts for 4-year-olds should be just the ticket.
1. Stylish money boxes are hard to find, but Robert the Robot by KG Designs is our pick for little savers. You may have to hide your wallet to prevent being raided.
2. Not only do these Plus Plus midi blocks help with fine motor skills but they can focus a restless 4-year-old like nothing else. Always have a stash to hand at lunches out or on long journeys.
3. This pocket-sized sound machine will amuse and entertain kids (of all ages) with its various silly noises and sound effects. Don’t let them scare the daylights out of dozing relatives with the siren, though.
4. Every kid needs a pair of gold shoe wings to give their feet superhero edge. All you need is a pair of lace-up shoes and the patience to re-lace them on Christmas Eve.
5. These clever magnetic blocks by Tegu are great for creative kids – buy one each for siblings and get their competitive spirits soaring.
6. Getting to grips with the world is made easier with wordless book Before After, which helps make sense of both simple and complex transformations like chicken-egg (egg-chicken) in graphic illustration. Perfect for inquisitive pre-readers.
7. If dressing up is par for the course then let them indulge at almost every occasion with this bunny headband from Wild & Gorgeous. Great for making any outfit party-ready.
8. We love a bit of nostalgia and there’s few stocking fillers that will be as well received as this old school potato gun for cheap and cheerful family fun.
9. Mr Fox favourite Technology Will Save Us have created a range of modern craft kits loved by kids both little and big, but this electro dough kit is a winner with young ones keen to get stuck into technology.
10. If your kids love to craft but you don’t tend to keep a cupboard full of supplies (or you’re away for Christmas) look no further than Oglee Poglee for brilliant all-in-a-box kits. Our favourite? The Space Adventure kit.
