Parenting is a continuous cycle of learning and, at times, unlearning. There is no “one shoe fits all” rule here. What may deem fruitful to one may not be of any use to some. Thus, we evolve: learning from our experiences, our mistakes, and taking cues from others as well. Tending a toddler can be taxing at times, and if you happen to parent a four year- ever -inquisitive child, you are sure to be on an uphill journey.

✅ Best toys for 4 years old 2023

Kids at this age are full of questions. They are observant and quick learner. They are ready (in most cases) to take a step ahead in learning new things which is a welcome change, at least for me. It is a little easier to keep them busy with themselves and include games and toys where the grownups can enjoy too.

Toys, as we know, must be good at developing some or the other skills in a child. Following is a list of some good toys for children of this age.


We can consider buying six-pieces puzzles for our four -years-old kids.

  • Challenges the kid’s mind and improves the thinking 
  • Better visualization
  • Improved concentration
