At age 6, children display a thirst for knowledge and a strong desire for intellectual independence. It is also the age where kids learn about fairness and cooperation.

With this in mind when shopping for the best toys and gifts for 6-year-olds, any game or toy that fosters problem solving skills, social development and healthy competition is sure to be a hit.

Fun Educational toys are an ideal way to support ongoing learning. At 6 years old, they’re at the ideal age to introduce more complex toys such as coding and programming robot toys, early science learning, hands-on experiments, fun outdoor play and discovery, construction and more. It’s important to remember the main thing your child needs from playing with you is to have fun. It’s important not to turn play into ‘lessons’. Try and provide an interesting environment and enough time to play, and follow your child’s lead.
