I have a tendency to get overwhelmed easily when it comes to shopping for children between the ages of 5 and 7 during the holiday season. It is almost as if this age group is too old for the “pre-K” type toys and too young for the Tween toys. Since I am trying hard to keep my gift guides with the manufacture’s age suggestion, you may not see many items that appeal to your child in the 2017 Holiday Gift Guide for Children Ages 5 to 7. I encourage you to check our other Holiday Gift Guides for ideas. (I will be posting a Tween & Teens Holiday Gift Guide next).
All products included in our Holiday Gift Guide for Children Ages 5 to 7 have been provided to us from various companies. Each of the items have been evaluated and are categorized according to the recommendations from the manufacturer. If you see something you are interested in, click on the link under the picture and it will take you directly to the purchasing page.
