May is for makers: makers of music and other amazing creations. Check out this month’s picks for smart, inventive gifts you’ll be proud to give – and kids’ll be thrilled to get!

Our picks for ages 3-6

Bruder: best-in-class

Bruder die-cast vehicles look just like the trucks, diggers and cranes kids see hard at work in the real world. Bruder toys play like the real thing too, providing hours of lifting, rolling, digging and dumping delight.


Get that digger in the sandbox, put that truck through its paces! Bruder toys can take it – and they’ll outlast even the busiest kid-contractor.


Bruder vehicles look and feel like the real thing: working doors, tailgates, ramps, winches, ladders and articulated arms add authenticity to play.


Look at this delightful touch: a hatch in the roof for a steering wheel extension that lets kids steer the vehicle from above. Brilliant.
