Planning A Dinosaur Themed Birthday

June 17, 2014 in Geeky Gifts,Kids by

It’s my son’s Birthday at the beginning of September, so I’ve started searching for gifts for him. He’ll be four years old. It’s kind of an awkward age, as a lot of the toys he has (and still loves) seem a bit babyish for him. But a lot of the toys he wants are a bit too old for him. So, needless to say, I’m struggling to find stuff for his Birthday!

He’s requested a dinosaur theme for his Birthday, so thought I’d get a few dinosaur things to decorate the house (or garden) with. Here’s what I’ve found so far:

Just so you know, the image is only printed on one side of the candle. But that is fine for us!

Dinosaur Party Tableware
All you need in one pack!

Dinosaur Party Tableware

Contains 8 plates, 8 cups, 8 napkins and a tablecover. Nice, colourful design. I’m pretty sure my little boy will be happy with these.

This Banner matches the design of the party pack (above), and is made from PVC, so suitable for indoor or outdoor use, which is great because we don’t know if we’ll be in the garden or not. Depends on the weather, really!

These come in lovely, bright colours. The dinosaurs on them are not too scary looking, and the ballons blow up to a reasonable size. I think they’ll be ideal.

So that’s the decorations and tableware sorted, which was the easy part! No we come to the issue of gifts. So far, I’m considering a new slide for him to play with in the garden. I’m trying to decide between these two:

Garden Slide
Can attach a hose to make water cascade!

Garden Slide

Suitable for ages 3 and above. This one has 150cm slide with large grip rails at the top of the ladder. It has a hose attachment, so water can cascade down the slide. It’s easy to assemble and looks quite sturdy.

Easy Store Slide
Collapses for easy storage.

This one says it’s suitable for ages 2 and above. The slide is 150cm long, and again, it looks quite sturdy. The steps are quite wide, and there are handles on the ladder.

I might also get some Lego for him. He’s being playing with Duplo up until now, and really enjoys using it, but I think it may be too easy for him now. You can get Lego Juniors sets, which are aimed at 4-7 year olds, so I’m tempted to get this:

Lego Juniors: Knights Castle
Comes in Lego brick box for easy storage.

Lego Juniors: Knights Castle

This set includes colourful, easy to build parts. It comes with a catapult, weapons, towers and a treasure chest among other things. I’d quite like it for myself!
