Gifts That Are Guaranteed to Make Any 4-Year-Old Boy Smile

Four-year-old boys are active and rambunctious to say the least—it’s tough to get them to sit still and focus on just one thing. So, what’s the solution? Toys that are fun and can keep their attention for more than five minutes. The trick is finding toys that encourage their sense of adventure and activate their imagination while staying in one spot. We’ve come up with three gift ideas that will do the trick and keep any four-year-old boy entertained.

Boys love building things as much as they love taking their creations apart, making this race car a slam dunk. Your kid turns into a mini mechanic by using the working toy screwdriver to take apart and then put the car back together. They’ll also get a kick out of the real engine sounds and working lights. It’s hours of fun that also builds fine motor skills.

Combining two of most 4-year-old boys favorite things, dinosaurs, and race cars, this will be an instant hit. The flexible pieces allow for various race tracks shapes that will encourage kids to be creative. But best of all, they can create all types of imaginative scenarios—perhaps the dinos outrun the cars and aren’t so lucky the next time—for a different playtime experience whenever they take it out.
