My absolute 100% favorite toy gift in the entire world for kids around that age (a little expensive but worth it):

http://www.magnatiles.com/

Essentially, they are shapes with magnets built into the edges that stick together VERY well when put together. They are about $50 for a 32-piece set. My kids have four sets and I'm actually considering getting two more sets.

They were the absolute, #1-with-a-bullet, runaway hit at daycare when I first saw them. I occasionally actually put them away down in the basement rather than in the living room - and within 24 hours, they're back upstairs. (My boys are 8 and 4, and we got our first set when my older one was about three. They have been THAT popular for THAT long in my house).

For younger kids, far less frustrating than Legos. The clear ones (which is what I have) are very pretty, and serve as houses, ships, rockets, garages, and just "building" stuff.

Now that they have a 100-piece set (I've seen it on Amazon, and several other educational-kid-toy magazines this season, I HIGHLY recommend them!
