My kids are 4 years apart so we also have some challenges finding things that appeal to both. I agree with your list. I'd also add:
* a set of building toys- There are so many different kinds available, but I like the idea of focusing on one. We like legos. My 2-year-old and 6-year-old play with duplos together, and my 6-year-old also likes smaller legos
* a set of kid-sized musical instruments- again, kids of all ages can use these.
* some kind of little people, animals, etc. that the kids can create playscenes with- both my kids like Playmobil.
* toy food, kitchen, etc.
* dolls and accessories esp. if you have girls
