I'm Desperate have zero idea for what other bits to get 6yo Ds & he has no idea either which is useful .

He has his big bits for Christmas which is all Imaginext Batman , I'm just stumped at what else to get that isn't bloody imaginext.
I'm looking for stocking fillers,board games & whatever else anybody can think of , he has no particular interest which is probably why I'm struggling so much .

I'll be eternally grateful brew cake flowers

my Ds is 6 and currently obsessed with Skylanders and Lego Ninjago. If you have a console, Skylanders is a great game, you can get the earlier ones for around £20 and the figurines make a great stocking filler. I've also got him some mashems/mashables? can't remember the name correctly but its like marvel superheroes and villains that you can swap and change the body parts. He got some for his birthday and they were a huge hit.

For board games, the classic snakes and ladders is alway a hit, but DS also enjoy games like buckaroo. Book people have some nice books as well.

Ds hasn't a clue what Skylanders are unfortunately

Will have a look at the Mashems & have just ordered him some books from the book people , Thank you

The lego games are good, we have shave a sheep and sunblock which are quite fun

It's not strictly a board game, but DS is getting Uno as he enjoyed it at my parent's house and it reminds me of my childhood. Other bits include a Kidizoom watch, a couple of Book People book sets, some little lego sets, obviously some sweets/ chocolate bits, oooh my minds gone blank! From family, ds is getting a power rangers costume, walkie talkies and a telescope.

Ok, how about Lego juniors Spider-Man set. It's a fairly smallish box and was about £12.
Bouncy snow globe ball from clintons cards
Flashing named Christmas badge from Clinton cards
Little live pet birds. they do a blue one £10 Argos
Nerf dart gun blue with darts. Fairly smallish £5. Boots and Asda I think
Magic flannel
Electric toothbrush Spider-Man
Lush bath bomb in shape of a robot £2.50

Brilliant thanks for the ideas

Dobble game is a big hit with my boys. They also like marvel mashers, ninja turtles and trashies. I have got my eldest Walkie talkies with a spy watch and spy glasses. They both like remote control cars. Klutz art books are also good they do a Star Wars thumb doodles book with ink pads. Star Wars command sets are also good and there are quite good deals around on these just now.

Snap circuits
Science set

Power rangers
Lego City range
