“Good” presents for kids

“Good” presents for kids

Hi, in a couple of weeks I'm going to a birthday party for a friend's kid who is just about to turn four. As I have mentioned in this forum before, I am kinda clueless when it comes to kids so I'd like some tips on what would be appropriate to get for him. My friend's family doesn't have a lot of money (and neither do I!) so I'd obviously like to get something more...I don't know, useful for him? Also, he has a two year old brother. ALSO, although it's been two years since I saw him last, this is the smartest, most mature kid I have ever met in my life. When he was two years old he was already brushing his own teeth and putting himself to bed. This kid is seriously self-sufficient! Any tips would be appreciated!
