Ds is not a massive player with toys. Much prefers a game of mums and dads, and as such has not really hit anything he wants for Christmas.
I've so far got him some books....
Last year we gave magnatiles which were a hit and he loves Lego but we have a small mountain and he prefers to invent rather than follow kits.
Please help me!!

Baby boy doll if he likes playing mums and dads.

Magic set.


Medical bag with tea supplies - a real blood pressure monitor, stethoscope etc is not expensive. You can get all the bits separately.

Some simpler airfix sets

For his stocking he's getting:

The usual sweets and chocolate
Minions bubble bath and aftershave set

A mini nerf gun
A small Lego set
The kind of bubble gum that comes as a tape
A can of Coke

Hope some of those ideas are useful for you.

My 6 year old dgs is getting a ukulele, Lego and Harry Potter dress up clothes with broomstick. He also has a Melissa and Doug magic set (a great hit for his birthday) and a Knex building set.

Thanks for the ideas. I've managed to get some fun bits for his stocking today (harmonica, light up bookmark, crystal growing kit mini Aqua bead set) and I'm going to look at some science and craft stuff.
Meccano sounds an interest plan.

It's funny, he's really just not that into anything in particular. Would probably like me to let him watch a bit more tvhmm
