Suggested by jex2013

Educational toys are much better than those nonsense toys that you can get from cheap stores. Choose gifts for ages 4 that will let them learn and play at the same time.

 Another fun idea is the TickleMe Plant Greenhouse.. In it you can grow a real house plant that moves and closes its leaves when you Tickle It!
