  • stuff like diggers or cars or legos cause he can just make all the mess he wants with those toys and they should last. Or color wonder since markers will only mark on paper and nothing else.

  • i have one of those kids. i bet him cars that are hard to break. also he really loves tools so i got him a tool bench one year, he could pound away all he wanted on that. it was great.

  • Coloring books with washable crayons and markers, can't go wrong with clothing (it may not be what a child gets excited about, but new clothes are still always something that helps), and maybe even get him some movies that he likes. My kids are like this too. Toy cars like the Matchbox cars are really durable and so are those really big Duplo blocks (they're like really BIG Legos).

  • As for a Christmas TOY for UR 5 year old maybe he might like TOY TRAINS or maybe toy RACING Cars. That sounds like a great gift for a 5 year old.

  • Sturdy wooden toys and cars. And don't spend a lot if he is going to break everything.
