Boys grow at a seemingly unrealistically fast pace!
It seems only yesterday when you were planning how to set his nursery and today, he’s a four-year-old toddler, running around the house and keeping you on your toes.
It’s obvious: you need to find a productive way for him to spend all that energy.
Learning toys are perfect for polishing your boy’s current skillset and challenging him to learn new skills. There are countless learning toys for a 4-year-old boy available in the market. And while we cannot list each of them, here is the list of the best toys we’ve seen for boys of this age.
If you want your son to grow up to be a kind person, you should introduce them to toys that develop their nurturing skills.
B. Toys by Battat Pet Vet is a unique toy that helps a child learn how to care for their animals. It’s a house-shaped toy that comes with four easy-to-open windows.
Set up as a clinic, your child will be responsible for tending to injured imaginative furry friends that are brought to them. It also has a lockable door that provides a more realistic look to the toy. This toy develops your child’s fine motor skills and polishes their hand-eye coordination.
Not to mention the empathy it helps them develop through pretend play!
We all love playing Bingo. It is a fun game that keeps even the adults occupied for hours.
The Peaceable Kingdom Alphabet Bingo is similar to the traditional Bingo game but comes with a little twist.
Instead of calling out numbers, you will call out an alphabet. Sounds easy, right?
Here is the twist. Instead of providing the exact alphabet on the card, the toy has a picture of things that start with that letter. So, if the letter ‘M’ is called out, your child will have to put the chip on the image of a ‘monkey’ any other object that starts with the letter M.
This is a good way to build the vocabulary of your child.
Also, since the game allows for 2-6 players, it’s a great way to foster the kid’s social skills.
One of the favorites among four-year-old boys as well as their parents, the MidWare MarbleRun set allows the child to complete a complex circuit that twists, spins, turns the marbles at different speeds.
This is a classic toy to introduce the concept of trial and error to your child. The aim of the playset is to collect the marbles at the tray set at various endpoints by passing them through a structured circuit.
So the child will need to invest quite a lot of focus into building a structure that works – or doesn’t work. There are fine motor skills at work, but also quite a bit of logic and creativity.
One of the incredible learning toys for 4 year olds, the V Tech LeapFrog Scoop & Learn Ice Cream Cart is the best tool to develop your child’s memory and sequencing skills.
Equipped with six cute order cards, the cart instructs the child in a fun animal voice to prepare icecream. This helps the child to learn how to follow directions.
Will You Introduce Learning Toys for a 4 Year Old Boy?
Every child requires some playtime. If you want playtime to be educational for your child, you should consider getting a learning toy for them.
Just keep in mind that this list is equally applicable to boys AND girls. If life isn’t gendered, why would toys be? People often search for specific things like toys for boys or girls. But at STEM Geek, we strongly believe that trucks are equally good for girls as well as boys. Just like kitchen sets can appeal to boys as well as girls!
