Today’s gift guide focuses on preschool (ages 3-5)

Now… my preschooler, who is 4, is probably my hardest one to shop for. She doesn’t really play with toys. I’m not really sure what she does when she’s playing. She loves make believe and she loves to be with her big brother and big sister. Here are a few ideas for the preschool sector:

Lego (shocking) Duplo:

The Duplo blocks are bigger and easier to manipulate than regular legos. They are a great starter for building toys. Duplo also has a storybook series and even Jake and the Neverland Pirates (which Little Sis loves). MegaBloks are another great building block to have on hand.

In my experience, preschoolers love make believe! Any kind of dress up (boys and girls) is sure to be a hit.

Some dress up ideas for girls are:









Some ideas for boys are:
