Gift for a 5-year-old?
When I moved in to my current place, I found out that my landlords' oldest son shares my birthday, so I thought it would be fun to get him a birthday gift. I don't want to ask his parents what to get him, since I don't want to have them feel like they have to get me a gift (they might still feel like they want to do that, but I think it's less likely if it's after the actual birthday). Does anyone have an idea of what to get a Wellesley boy on his fifth birthday?

I always default to subversive picture books, for the wee ones.

Two shots of espresso and a puppy!

Uh . . . building blocks? A big pad of paper and some fat markers? Dude, I don't even remember what I played with as a five year old girl. Well, besides dirt, and chickens.

This is a Wellesley kid -- is there anything he doesn't already have? Dirty chickens might be your best best.

Z's elder son has been enjoying The Wizard of Oz being read to him. Maybe Just So Stories? Some kind of interesting wood-style puzzle? Not-just-rectangular blocks?

Is it ok to give just one of the kids a present on his birthday?

It is my opinion that you really cant go wrong with legos

...unless they're a choking hazard for the smaller ones.

unfortunately 5 is the age right between the product lines for lego so it really depends on the maturity level of the kid. But there are legos for just about ever age.

I don't know why that link (http://parents.lego.com/) isn't working but it has the product lines broken down by age.
