Starting kindergarten is a big milestone for any five year old boy. Luckily we have a great selection of presents to make this age extra special!

Five year olds talk a mile a minute. Now that their vocabulary has expanded to include thousands of words, they're going to use them all! Kids this age particularly enjoy telling stories, jokes, and riddles. (But prepare to be told at least one or two jokes where the punchline doesn't make sense!) They'll also use their words to argue and try to reason with people, especially when their favourite word is "because"!

Five year olds love dressing up and playing pretend - every day is Halloween for them! Fortunately, kindergarten rarely has a dress code. Help them get into character with costumes and play sets. (Hearing a small boy growl "I'm Batman!" will never get old - we promise.)

During these early school years, boys aren't only making friends and learning how to interact socially. They're also starting to understand more complicated concepts, such as right and wrong. If you're caught saying a 'bad word' within earshot of a five year old, prepare to be scolded!

By the end of kindergarten, many kids have started to master colors, shapes, and phonics. Even if they can't read, they now manage to hold books the right way up... usually. But one of the biggest developments at age five is that they're now able to understand the concept of 'planning': they love to make plans about how to play, what to build, or what to draw. Building sets and art kits are fantastic ways to fulfil their creative ambitions that have been five years in the making!
