6th Birthdays & Gifts For 6 Year Olds

Gift Ideas by Age

Sixth Birthday Gifts Australia

What do you get for someone who is 6 years old? Six year olds are off to school, thinking about reading, writing, playing and making friends. At this age, some are more aware of “boys toys” and “girls toys” and the toys that their friends have.

Safety is still important – be careful of bicycles and similar toys unless the child has a safe place to use them away from traffic and other hazards. Make sure sport equipment is well-made.

Suggestions: Imaginative play with puppets and puppet theatre or dollshouses, more complicated jigsaw puzzles and games that require some reading. 6 year-olds may like to help around the house with lightweight tool sets, garden tools or cooking equipment. Art and play becomes more formal with flower presses and craft sets or simple science sets (magnets etc). Pretend and dress-up toys can be used to act out situations they see in real life: playing shop, television characters, etc. Most six year olds are reading so short novels and non-fiction books will be popular. Check to see if they have a passion like dinosaurs, animals or trains.
