I have two girls, who are 1 and 3 so have a lot of toys for those age groups and plenty of girl toys in amongst them. the boy things not such a worry for the little ones cos we have a train set and cars etc so not completely stuck, but for older children I feel I don;t have much at all. I'm applying for a start up grant so would like to use some of it towards some older toys but don;t know where to start. So, what do your children of 5 and over like playing with best?

From my experience over 5's like bored games, Anything artistic, computers playing outdoors with skipping ropes, footballs

Lego is popular with my afterschoolies and craft things when they can be bothered.

lego is good but they do tend to drop it which isnt good with little ones aound!! My castle and knights is a great hit as well as my fire station
