Ladies with 9yo boys?

If you have a 9yo boy what do they like? Do they still like HotWheels/Legos/stuff like that? What kinds of books?

Any good ideas for inexpensive gifts for a 9yo boy? Thanks.

  • My son is 8, 9 in Oct and he still loves Legos, but the theme ones like rescue chopper, or sets like that. Diary of a Wimpy Kid definitely, not so much hot wheels unless it's a cool racing track or something along those lines, but I find those things are only good for about a day and then pieces go missing and it doesn't work. Yo-yo's, skateboards, biking. Does he have a favorite sports team or sport? A t-shirt or other memorabilia is good. Honestly even a gift card would be fine, or does he have an ipod? iTunes cards are always good too.

    Oh, my son loves the graphic novels Bone. There's a whole series of Bone books.

  • And there are Hardy Boys books that are geared towards younger readers too that he might like.

  • My 9 year old likes cars, legos, knex, anything to do with firefighters. He isn't big on books but he has a hard time with reading so I'm not surprised.

  • My 9yo still likes Legos and refused to let me put up his hotwheels collection (to save for his baby brother). Mostly he likes the xbox and football. Right now he's reading the Mouse and the Motorcycle series (they were watching one of the movies in school so I bought him the set of books). he likes Star Wars comics and Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
