As Christmas approaches and it's time for the big Christmas gift hunt for the kids, it can be nice to get inspired for gift ideas. It can be quite challenging to find exactly the toy that your child likes the most, as interest quickly changes direction. We've tried to help you out by suggesting the toys that are most popular with children aged 3 to 4. The different toy suggestions mentioned are specifically intended for the specific age and developmental stage the child has reached.

Toys range widely and can be creative, for the garden or challenging. At the same time, you also need to decide how much you want to invest in the toy, as children's interest in a particular toy can change quickly.

Find the best Christmas gift for 3-4 year olds
When you start looking for Christmas presents for your children, it's a good idea to find out what exactly is hot with them at the time. Children can quickly lose interest in a particular toy. You know your child best, so figuring out whether it should be an indoor or outdoor toy is a good place to start. Then consider whether the child likes to be creative or loves to tumble and be extra wild. Find out what toys the child already has, so you know whether the Christmas gift is to complement some current toys or whether it is to buy toys in a completely different direction. For example, you could add toys for the sandbox, buy more LEGO DUBLO or other food and storage for the play kitchen. There are many options, but it is ok to get an overview before buying the Christmas present. Firstly, you want your child to be happy with the gift and secondly, you want them to play with it too. You know your child best. Use our inspiration for Christmas gift ideas to make Christmas a success for both you and the kids.
