    Default Present ideas for a 5yr old boy.

    Please please PLEASE throw some suggestions my way. Poor DS2 has nothing so far.

    He has a bike, scooter, power wing, trampoline, inflatable water slide etc.

    I'm more after toys. He loves cars, trucks and planes. I'm hoping to avoid a remote control but at this stage I'm open to suggestions.

    Thank you!

    My almost 5yr old is obsessed with Lego, star wars and super heroes. At Kindy he loves any building/construction toys. He also loves dressing up as a super hero (batman cape and mask).

    Remote control toys are great! We got DS a huge remote control monster truck that he loves last year and his grandparents bought him a remote control speed boat , this year he's lego obsessed so will get him some big lego sets and DH is making him a lego table

    I think they are great as well however DH is sick of them not standing up to the rigours of a rough boy. 🙄 However, we can't come up with much else that is suitable so he will just have to suck it up.

    He has indicated he wants a monster truck. Which type did you get? Thanks everyone else for the suggestions. Keep them coming!

    My 4.5 year old is Lego city obsessed so he is getting some of that. He also wants a large garbage truck and a cement truck. My DS hasn't yet been influenced by all the superheroes etc so we are still very much into cars, trucks, trains and Lego.

    We also got him this set which I think he will love- trains and construction trucks - what could go wrong?! We got our from Costco though and I think it was cheaper.

    The big Grave Digger one from toys r us - I think it was around $150 ish - it's pretty indestructible, it's been driven off cliffs and tables and trampolines and still survived!

    It's funny but he hasn't show a huge amount of interest in Lego. His brother is obsessed and we have a huge amount of it. He plays with it at times but it's not his 'thing'. I kind of wish it was his thing because my problems would be solved!

    He does like Bumblebee but I think that's more the ads in tv. He isn't really into super heroes either. He still loves McQueen and okay with his Mack truck a lot.

    That's the kind of rough treatment I need to hear about! Cheers!
