  • Do you live near a Wal-Mart? They have some cute toy tool sets, how about a tricycle, Tonka trucks, play cowboy sets (with cap guns, hats, sheriff badge, etc.) Or is he into puzzles, books etc.?

    I have a son and I usually just wander around the toy aisles looking for ideas for Christmas and such....

  • I agree nothing beats going to the store, browsing through the isle and looking at different categories and also don't forget $$$.

    Boys enjoy legos, my boy is eating/breathing Star Wars right now. But just a few weeks ago it was Kung Fu panda...think about the type of child, sometimes kids enjoy simple toys too.

    My daughter once got a huge Barbie coloring book and she adored that things for months!

  • I just bought my nephew who turned 3 yesterday the Elefun game. He had a blast with it as did his older sister. Hope this helped! :)

  • At this age kids change their mind weekly about what they like and don't like. Avoid toys that come from a cartoon like backyardigans, pooh or any nickalodean show. Stick to toys without a theme like duplo legos, lincoln logs. even small 24 piece puzzles. Leap frog and v- tech are good toys. Find something that won't end up on the bottom of the toy box in a month.
    Fisher price has some nice toys that engage their imagination.
