    We were so tempted to buy one of these as a party prize for DS1's last birthday party. But it was a little above the 'party prize' allowance!

    What do I buy a child like this? We'd prefer not to spend over $30.

    His family appears to be well-off and he is the youngest so I don't think he does without anything.
    Nothing. Or donate the money you would have spent to a charity for children who have nothing in his name.

    I'd be really tempted to buy something from Oxfam for him!

    He is still very young. He might have been overwhelmed at all the people watching him open presents or the party in general. My DS does this it may look like he is not pleased but he plays with all the toys when he gets home and we thank everyone of course.
    The minions fart machine is awesome, DS can get enough of fart noises. I personally don't get it but it makes him laugh.

    Kmart sell a cheaper version of the fart gun for around $10?
    We have the dearer one, got it before seeing Kmart, and my boys love it
    They also love the electric pencil sharpener from Kmart think maybe $5?
    My older son loves the treehouse books but I think 7 might be too young for the reading level? Unless they are advanced?
    What about an addictaball? They are fun, all my kids like ours.

    My 7 year old loves the Guinness book of records books. I think this year is on sale at big W for $20.

    Most annoying toy ever. My sister gave this to my son a few years ago and I keep wanting to get rid of it but they keep playing with it

    Default What to buy a 7 year old boy that doesn't appreciate anything?

    I know, when they started playing with it at the party I had to apologise to the boy's mother. Quite possibly most annoying toy ever. Maybe it should be given as a gift to someone only if you really dislike the parents...
