Do your boys play with toys??

If so, what?? My 9 year old loves to read, play outside and watch tv (which I'm really trying to limit during the summer), but he really doesn't play with anything else? What do your boys do???

  • My 10 year old still plays with action figures, legos (oh! the mountains of legos), army men, Pokemon cards, anything involving rope and sticks. He's got a DS, enjoys TV, and he reads a lot.

  • My 13 yr old and 16 yr old still like playing with nerf guns or water guns as an outside activity. When they were 9 they loved being outside playing baseball or football. They never played with many toys though, they had trucks but gave that up around 5 or 6 I guess. They rode their bikes a lot when they were 9 and 10 too.
    They both read, they watch movies and my youngest likes to play video games. I came home from work today and he was on the couch reading a book after he spent the day at the pool.

  • My son will be 9 this week. He and his friends play with Legos / Bionicles, Pokemon cards and figures, Bakugan and, occasionally, he'll drag out the old dinosaur figures but mainly so he can pretend they're at war mauling each other. Most of his games involve battles. ;)

    He also swims, rides his bike, plays on his DS, the Wii, the computer or watches TV. He plays basketball with the kids on the block and baseball with anyone that will agree to it. Oh and he reads a lot or he writes his own stories.

  • My son is 12 and will be 13 soon. He still enjoys his hotwheels and transformers. He also likes to draw, read and orgami. Of course he likes his xbox but I am really trying to get him to do other things. I send him outside with his sister all the time.
