What's an indestructible toy for a 3 year old boy?

I need ideas for my very rambuctious nephew's birthday. He likes typical "boy toys", but he's very hard on them. What are some toys that can survive a rough and rowdy boy?

Thanks!

  • Hot wheels - I agree, however my son has figured out how to break a couple of those too if the doors or hoods open - just get a cheap toy you know will break and $$ for a savings account or something? My son loves to put money in a piggy bank so you could get him a piggy bank and a bag of change to put in it..

  • My boys LOVED the rescue heros and they can last through ANYTHING! Also, rough and rowdy boys usually enjoys sports and sporting equipment. A soccer ball or a baseball glove?

  • Hot wheels are not indiscutible. My kids have managed to break around 50 of them. I don't think there are too many toys that are indiscutible. Wood blocks don't tend to break but they can break things. I like duplos and mega bloks. Though if they get stepped on they can break.

  • Lego Duplo. Boys love to build with them and the pieces are very solid.

  • A play-hut tent. My son loves his and it folds and stores away easily.

  • LOL, Nothing! jk. Really, cars are pretty tough. Any type of metal type vehicle, or balls. Maybe a t-ball set.

  • The wooden train sets. Thomas comes to mind. But if you have an Ikea near you, they have a similar type(Thomas cars fit the tracks) that is more econmically priced. The basic starter set has track and bridge to make a figure eight and four train cars and is about $10. My kids(4 and 2 1/2) love them. They can rearrange the tracks and it keeps them occupied while I am doing something non-kid fun. They can bring it where ever I go inthe house and have even taken it on visits.

  • wooden building blocks or those giant Legos. he can build a tower and knock it over with out hurting it and the giant legos are easier to spot on the floor than the little ones are.
