A great-nephew I don't often see, and in any case I haven't a clue about what boys that age might like. I give money as well, so a fun present of no more than about £10 - any ideas gratefully received.
I don't want anything 'educational' and books are out since I haven't a clue what he's got. I don't mind if it's 'tat', as long as it's something he'll be pleased with.

You can get cheap and cheerful remote control cars for that price.

fire starter or wire saw go down well for that age. Or a pen knife.. (to be used under supervision obviously)

I've ordered a 'butt head' game that sounds like it fits your description of non educational fun!

A jar of sweets (make the jar up yourself) with a printed or homemade name label on it.
