I have been looking at DS1's list and it is mostly DS games. He has also asked for a microscope which I have got him but I would like to get him an actual toy too.

Any of something good that he can't use to injure or torment his younger siblings?

My DS just turned 11 and really likes fluxx

Am also getting him some lego ninjago which he's probably a bit old for but enjoys fiddling with

And a basic electronics kit/potato battery thing.

Ds will be 10 four days before Christmas.
I have found him really hard to give to this year!
He is getting (for birthday and Xmas)
lots of Lego Ninjago
Hobbit Lego
DSi and a few games
Magnetic dart board
Shark book and a book called MAneaters (true stories of man eating animals! I loved it as a child and found one in USA )
New Wimpy Kid book
Magic8 ball
Rush Hour game
art supplies
Hobbit graphic novel

and will probably get a football kit too.

Thanks CleansLate. That game looks good. Lego annoys me as he makes it and then it ends up broken up in a big tub or scattered to the four winds...bah humbug!

He rush hour and it is really good. Looks like lego it most popular. Maybe I should stop being so po-faced about the scattering of it and finding it everywhere!

My ds (10) is getting lots of books & DVDs, wooden Pentago game (got Qwirkle for recent b-day & loves that too), air power soccer disk, sound machine, mookie lolo ball, hexbug ant, lego. Thought about remote control helicopter too as there are some that get good reviews on amazon & aren't too expensive, but not sure about that.

Ds(10) has a stunt scooter, some lego books and a deck teck scate park with 4 deck techs (little finger scateboards that you do tricks with) and that's it up to now.

I'm looking for a watch, but I'm at a loss what else to get.

If he's into building stuff there's a Haynes build a model combustion engine which we've got for 10 yr old DS. Off amazon (sorry)

Thanks everyone. I made my mind-up in the end.

Now just need to tackle the husband's presents.

Some really good suggestions there, thanks.

Ds just received a brilliant gift from my sil - which he was allowed to open. A woolly hat with integral heaphones so he can listen to his MP3 player without having to wear uncomfy earphones

Thanks all good ideas here Have ordered the air power saoccer disk and magnetic dart board for DS (10). He has been watching the darts with me recently so should be fun to play togetehr and we have hard floors througout downstairs plus he loves footie so that looks fab!

Have also got him the last 2 Gladiator books (he loves these and has the first 2) plus a new Man U football as his has split after lots of service.
