7th Birthday Gifts Australia
What do you get for someone who is 7 years old? Seven year olds are well aware of what birthdays mean so ideally gifts should be immediately usable. They will not want to wait to physically “grow into” a toy although it is fine to buy toys that will become more interesting to them as the year goes on.
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 dolls’ houses, 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 novels and non-fiction books will be popular. Check to see if they have a passion like dinosaurs, animals or trains.
