What does your boy play with??

My son's 8 and his only interests are legos, nerf guns and video games. Other than that he tells me "there's nothing to do." What are some toys that your 8-10 year old actually plays with?

  • My 9 year old son is always at his friends house. Sometimes I drive by to see what they are doing and every time, they are running around the yards using sticks as guns and swords. If he by some miracle stays at home when he gets off the bus, he will play video games but the majority of the time, he and his friends are running around with those sticks!

  • My son is almost 8. He like video games too but he also loves his play mobile toys, power ranger dolls, his remote control cars and he loves to dress up with his halloween costume from last year (the red power ranger). He also likes to pretend to be Bed10 and stuff like that.

  • My 10 year old also likes legos, nerf guns and video games. He also likes action figures, reading, painting, soccer with neighborhood kids, baking, whittling, board games (especially chess), drawing, matchbox cars, and (every once in a while) play-doh. He likes to play tug-of-war with the dog, ride his bike, skateboard or rollerblades, or just veg in front of the TV. That is, of course, when he's not running around with sticks.
