Tell Us...the Best Gifts for 5-8 Year Olds?

To pull together our gift guides this year we're asking the experts: YOU! You know best what gifts your children have enjoyed at different stages of their lives. Share your wisdom with fellow parents, aunties, uncles, and grandparents. Bikes, art supplies, science kits, marble runs?

What are the best gifts to give young school kids, approximately ages 5-8 for the holidays? You can leave a link to a specific product or just give a general idea of a gift your child has enjoyed or has asked for.
