How about:

Stickers/Sticker book
Card games
Board games
Magnets
Calculator
Chalk
Wooden blocks
and Giant cardboard boxes (not really a gift, but watch out when you give these to young children... their imaginations go WILD!)

I'm surprised you didn't include any wooden blocks ! They're the foundation and all time landmark of PLAY POWER !

Jennifer Ward

How about sticks, sand, water and paper?

Dan Limbach

Etch-a-sketch
Lincoln Logs
bulk Legos (not kits)
Frisbee
football or soccer ball

As an inventor of a new children's board game, Lunch Box (which makes fitness fun and engaging). I can't agree more with the lists above. Being bias to educational toys... I have found board games to be a perfect gift for children parties. Especially those that require little to no set up time or lengthy instructions! My children love Sorry, Clue and Connect 4 (old school :)
These old school toys teach many of the multiple intelligences!

Sincerely,

Richard you can filter this and not include my website as I am not trying to plug my invention here.... just wanting you to know that I am a real toy enthusiast!

Don't count out a plain deck of cards. They can make houses of cards, play basic games like Crazy 8s, Old Maid and many other standards. After all, a game is simply a toy that requires a little more thought:) No rules required.

What are "jack rocks"?
How about baby dolls, toy cars, post-it notes, simple dress-up (e.g., scarves), basic craft supplies (e.g., construction paper, scissors, glue), marbles, stacking plastic cups, jigsaw puzzles?
