He has just started secondary so I know he will soon be heavily influenced by his peers. He still likes his figures and will offer play with them and make animation videos with his tablet. I know he will be going through the tweenager stage so what things should I buy him?? So far I thought about a few WWE figures, nerf gun and maybe a more grown up watch like superdry it needs to be analogue with a numbers as he is dyslexic. He has a ps 3 which he shares with his brother and one of my old I phones. Any ideas??

My son when he was 12 loved his Beats headphones. Bought him some lynx sets as they get stinky. James Bond aftershave. Loves Goosebumps books for some reason.

Its a tricky age. He's just turned 13 and he wanted money - he spent £400 on clothes at Meadowhall. Addidas, Top Man, Size, Urban Outfitters - cleaned me out.
