Shopping for a 5 year old

OK, I'm a little late but I've been trying to shop for everybody. Right now I'm shopping for a 5 year old. Here are some of the suggestions - see if you agree with their assessment:

Trivial Pursuit the Beatles - I guess because kids born in the 21st century are just packed with knowledge about the 1960s (a time when their parents were probably not born)

Scene It? Deluxe Star Trek Edition - I shouldn't be too critical about this - I mean I thought the Darth Vader robotic arm was a perfect gift for a 5 year old (because, come on, how cool is that!), but I just don't think that the game is going to hold much allure for a five year old

Spring Swings Fun Ride Original Zip Line - ok, if I was 5 years old and I got this I would totally love it - however, the prospect of little tikes zip lining from a tree into a wall may be a little disconcerting for both me and the parents

Age 5 seems a bit young to be sneaking out of the house. Giving the kid that zip line could definitely contribute to juvenile delinquency.
