Kindergartners are an inquisitive bunch, wanting to know the "why" behind everything they see and do. Give the 5 year old on your list gifts that will help them continue to explore, while helping them build essential skills at the same time.

Mazes don't get much more fun than the Perplexus Maze Game ($20), where tots have to guide a marble ball through a see-through globe. How many turtles can you stack? With Reptangles ($29), builders can create more than 1000 items by snapping and sliding the colorful turtles together. The entire family knows the tunes, so bring everyone together around the Wii for a family sing-along courtesy of Disney Sing It: Family Hits ($39). You won't believe the power of the music that comes out of the Paper Jamz Series 2 Guitar ($20), simply by pushing the paper buttons. Let loose on the streets with the Razor Rip-Rider 360 Drifting Ride-On ($79). The two back wheels have been replaced with casters, creating a load of spinning action when lil ones take off.
