Best Toys for Boys1

1.These are a huge hit at my house – with all three of my kids! Melissa & Doug Beginner Pattern Blocks


2. I loved these growing up – and my kiddos love them too! ALEX® Toys – Craft Shrinky Dinks Jewelry 397J

3. You just can’t go wrong with Lego’s. This was a great starter set for my son. LEGO Ultimate Building Set

4. I’ve been told this game is great for fine motor skills. Who cares? I enjoy playing it just as much as my kids. The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel Game

5. This is awesome – especially for the two of my kids that are learning to read! Melissa & Doug Magnetic Wooden Alphabet

6. There’s a reason this was so popular when we were growing up. Kids love it! Classic Etch A Sketch Magic Screen

7. If you have an iPad, you NEED THIS! Seriously. ArtSee Studio by WowWee

8. I’m not sure what we’d do without this thing. It’s fun in the yard – and it’s fun in the basement for rainy days. Pure Fun 9001KJ Kid’s Jumper Trampoline

9. My 2-year-old, 4-year-old and 6-year-old are all obsessed. Enough said. Deluxe Marble Run Set, 66 Wooden Pieces with 6 Marbles

10. There are over 11 feet of track in this kit, and even little kids can maneuver the set up. (Way easier for kids than setting up the wooden train tracks.) And you can use it to build a track for any of the cars you already own – or you can race the cars that come with it! Kidoozie Build A Road X-Track

11. Does it get any better than wooden blocks? My kids don’t think so… Melissa & Doug 60-Piece Standard Unit Blocks

12. This is one of those toys that has been used at least twice a week for the past three years. It never gets old. Ever. B. Meowsic Keyboard

13. I urge you to check one of these out in a store, or find a video to watch online. This thing is SO cool, and every single one of my kids loves it! Symphony in B Music Toy

14. My kids sit and watch paint dry for four hours and barely move. She loves to play with Alphie by herself – even though they don’t necessarily know the answers – they couldn’t care less. He’s a great gift for ages 2 1/2 and up. Playskool Alphie

15. All of my kids love Magna Tiles. They LOVE them. If our house were burning, and I could only bring one toy – I would bring these. That’s how much we love them. They got the deluxe set from Santa last year. This year they’re getting this set with more pieces to build with and a few fun extras too. Magna-Tiles Solid Colors 48 Piece DX Set

16. My boys started out with the Brio starter train set. We love it! Brio Classic Figure 8 Set

17. It’s possible that I had a 3rd child just so that I wouldn’t have to pack away the Little People Farm. I love this thing (and my kids do too!) Fisher-Price Little People Animal Sounds Farm

18. Let me tell you about these amazing furry buddies! You buy the stuffed animal (which is the softest, cutest thing you’ll ever see). Then you buy a scent pack to zip into his back. I picked “Just Breathe” and when my kids have stuffy noses, they sleep with their Scentsy buddy and they can breathe through their nose all night long. No more Vick’s. No more trying to figure out how to help your child breathe at night. Nope – they just need to sleep with their favorite stuffed animal. Life Changing!!! Scentsy Buddy

19. We’re a huge fan of Bruder trucks. They’re durable, realistic-looking, and they don’t take batteries or make a single sound. Bruder Toys Man Side Loading Garbage Truck Orange

20. I highly recommend these Melissa & Doug Jumbo Coloring Pad – Animals

21. I have a crush on the B. toys. They’re huge hits at our house, they appear to last forever, and they’re just cool. You’ll love them too! B. Woofer Guitar

22. I really can’t express to you how much my 2-year-old loves this! And I love it because it doesn’t make noise. Melissa & Doug Car Carrier

23. Like Tinker Toys – only better. My kids can spend HOURS building with these things. Superstructs Super Set

24. The rainbow bracelets are popular for a reason – they’re freaking awesome! And my 6-year-old son loves to make them (and wear them) just as much as my daughter. And they’re cheap! Cra-Z-Art Shimmer ‘n Sparkle Cra-Z-Loom Bracelet Maker

Best Toys for Boys5

25. This flying Spiderman comes in other superhero options too. It’s so fun to play with – my boys love it! The Bridge Direct Spiderman Flying Hero Action Figure

26. Another oldie but goodie. Seriously – these keep my kids occupied for hours! Lincoln Logs Classic Edition Tin

27. Turn your bed into a tent. It doesn’t get much better than this! Pacific Play Tents Tree House Bed Tent

28. The original Spirograph is back (with a few great improvements)! And my 5 and 6 year old LOVE IT! Spirograph Deluxe Design Set

29. These are so handy to have for kids that are learning to read and count! Melissa & Doug Alphabet / Numbers Placemat Bundle
