The Ulitmate Toy Guide For 5 Year Olds
Examples of dressing up outfits for 5 year old girls and boys include superheros such as spiderman, batman, ironman, The Incredible Hulk, superman. My own son used to love his spiderman outfit when he was age 5.
Princesses are a great theme for 5 year old girls and movies such as Frozen have made dressing up as Elsa popular. Obviously traditional role model outfits such as nurses, doctors, vets, policemen are another idea. Traditional dress us such as knights and pirates are also popular.
You can get ideas of the best dressing up outfits from book, TV and movie characters that 5 year olds are interested in too. Other ideas include Minnie Mouse, characters from Toy Story, Little Red Riding Hood or what about a teenage mutant ninja turtle.
Bikes, Ride Ons and Scooters
Scooters are another really popular toy with wheels. My son uses his scooter everyday to go to and from school. It's a fun toy to keep kids occupied. It's easy to learn how to ride and fairly safe too.
