I love Christmas, but knowing what presents to buy can sometimes drive me crazy! Lucky for you, I have put in all of the hard work to help you buy an amazing gift for that special 4 year old boy in your life! I find it easier to shop online for toys or click and collect. Often, the toy that I’m after isn’t on the shelf and that is not what you need when your christmas list is long!
Where to shop online?
Big W has free home delivery when you spend over $100 (some products are excluded). Free same day pick up is available if you order before 12 noon, you can then pick it up after 4pm. Some toys can be pre-ordered now as they haven’t arrived yet, a good idea as popular toys fly off the shelf well before Christmas. I usually find Big W’s prices to be very competitive. Check out Big W delivery charges and information here.
Target offers free click and collect on orders over $20 and free home delivery over $80. Check out Target delivery charges and information here. Myer currently has their mid-season sale on now! There are some great bargains available to kick start your christmas shopping. Standard delivery is free on orders over $70. Same day ($14.95) and express delivery ($9.95) is also offered.

Toys for Christmas for a 4 year old boy
The active boy
This is some serious fun!! You could always invest in a trampoline (Vuly & Springfree rate well) and it is a great way to burn off your little boy’s energy! It is important to get children this age outside, moving their bodies and building up their muscle tone and brain connections. In addition to improving their gross motor skills, kids will over the moon with these outdoor toys:
The play time loving boy
This is a great age to promote free play and what better way to do it then with these fun toys! Your boy could be a chef one minute, a super hero the next! PJ Masks, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Peppa Pig are bound to be a huge hit.
Car loving boy
This could keep him occupied for hours! Tonka can be used in the backyard sand pit or for inside play and you most likely had one when you were a kid too! Hot Wheels Super Ultimate Garage looks like so much fun that I want a go!
The Toy Story loving boy
With the recent release of Toy Story 4, these toys provide interactive fun.
Christmas toys for the lego loving boy 4 year old boy
These Lego sets are great, as they are specifically for kids aged 4+. Choose his favourite superhero, lego city or build your own sets.
Train loving boy
Thomas the Tank Engine is very popular. However, if he isn’t into that Brio make some excellent sets that can be connected together.
Books loving boy
Open up their minds with a book – there are so many wonderful books to choose from. Whether he is into the Pig the Pug series (very big here in our house), Dinosaurs, Thomas the Tank Engine or Peppa Pig, a book is always an excellent stocking filler.
He is going to school soon and it might be a good idea to get an educational toy to keep his mind active. Play doh is fantastic for working on fine motor skills. Leap Frog and Vtech products entertain him while also getting him to learn.
Happy christmas shopping for the special 4 year old boy in your life!!! Don’t leave your christmas shopping until the last minute!!
