The electric circuit sets are good. My daughter has a snap circuits set and finds it fun building them and making them work.

Snap circuits is definitely cool....but regardless on what you feel you need to buy, it's how you yourself engage with your child.....if you want to leave them to their own devices for a period of time, then things like pen and paper will not suffice for many children in this day and age.

My son has all the things and more that have been mentioned above......He will happily while away the time with something on this tablet or 3ds, but more 'hands on' and traditional activities are more fruitful when you are there with them.....working together....offering guidance.

My lads 8 and loves minecraft too, but I have bought many minecraft books which he / we also read through together....Instead of simply digging holes and bashing zombies, he builds some rather cool structures too.....

From a gaming point of view, Lego Dimensions has also been better then I thought, due to the physical building aspect of its game play.

Playdoh is also a good creative outlet :O)

Good luck in your search for the perfect toy / activity, and hope this helps :)

Fimo modelling clay - make all sorts of things and bake them in the over (with supervision).

My son likes zoob, the car sets are the best ones.

I bought these 'gear cogs' for my 5 year old and it's quite good, he likes making up his own things but might need your help for more complex ideas. I paid £20 a few weeks ago though.
