During week days I actually schedule time for toys, and I still have to sometimes play with DS.
But by all means if you feel as though something could be wrong I would go see a dr.

Our little guys are pretty much the same age, and mine won't sit and play with toys either
Today we did a Brigance test with the health nurse as they were concerned about his speech development - they also referred us to an audiologist. His B test was great, learning all on track but he has fluid on his ears which didn't clear and after 2 hearing tests he doesn't have "adequate hearing for speech development" which is kind of a relief, he's not just flatly ignoring me!! Especially if there's back ground noise.. I get nothing.
Has his hearing been checked lately? Have you discussed it with your health nurse?
If he hits me I grab his hand and say "we don't hit" if he does it again he has to sit in the hall way. He doesn't stay there.. But I put him back and tell him that he hit mummy and it hurt me. I get right down to his level so he can see my lips. He's usually crying at this point
Then I'll give him a hug and find something to play with... It's not overly effective but it's all I've got at the moment... Big hugs to you. It's tough!

My son has only just started properly playing with toys the past month or two, before that they just got thrown around. He still isn't that interested in duplo, he'll play with what you make and sometimes try himself or pull them apart but out of everything we have it's probably what he plays with the least on his own, I always have to sit down and show him. He loves puzzles and shape sorters, obsessed with trains and has just recently starting linking the track together himself when he wants to play. His favorite toys are these ELC cars that link together, a train and cars in one (exciting!) and he loves wheeling them around and under chairs, behind things. You should probably be open to a few more items, everything plays some sort of part in their development ya know? Even if we think it's just crap. Ikea have cube shelves that are great for hiding the toys away in cute/stylish boxes. I know other shops have similar designs.
Is the aggression mostly at home? Does he do it when you're out and busy? I can't really give an opinion if it's in the range of normal toddler behavior or not but I know my son acts like this when he's tired, hungry or bored and wants my attention.

My son is four and has never really been interested in Lego or blocks. He loves cars and balls and water play. But. He changes day to day what he plays with. With a selection of different things, he has options and can choose things depending on his mood.

He is getting train set, ball pit thing for Xmas. They do heaps and have heaps of of play time he just won't listen etc maybe it's just his age. I've looked up some parenting classes thanks @VP. Money is still a barrier right now I just paid for the sleep school as I thought it was a sleep issue but I don't think it's that? I'm at my wits end my psych is trying get us into child assessment team
