    Default I need ideas please!

    Our DS is about to turn seven and we are needing some present inspiration. He loves Lego and it will be our fallback present if we can't think of anything else. He has a new bike, scooter and power wing. We are staying away from electronic devices. Has anyone had personal experience with scale electric at this age? Any other suggestions are appreciated as we are running out of time.

    Is he DIY? Perhaps starting with a carpentry project and his own tools (as long as someone is prepared to assist). Or something science related, I like the telescope idea.
