The best gifts and toys for 5-year-olds should acknowledge their developmental milestones at the same time, inspire their creativity and independent play. As they move to big-kid territory, the 5-year-olds you love will cherish these presents.

Many 5-year-olds can tell simple stories using full or so sentences, count to 10 or beyond, copy geometric shapes, and sing a few lines of their favorite songs or episodes. They probably have friends and might like to sing, dance, skip, climb, and run around. So it's important that whether you are the parent or the uncle, you give them that gifts should play to their strengths, encourage them to explore, practice their wits, and last on this list is to show them how valuable or loved they are no matter who they are or their capabilities as a 5 year old.
