I am donating a gift to my local met police, I have been given a 3 year old boy, what kind of thing would be good? Obviously I don't know of any interests of the child so looking for any ideas, thank you

My 3 year old boy likes his toy kitchen so would love play food or
Similar. He loves make believe tea parties so we have got him
A tiny tea set for the Christmas with a teapot etc.

He loves dressing up so has loads of hats/jewellery/dress up shoes. He likes his babies (just like his real life baby sister! ) so anything for his dolls would go down well.

You already said you have 3 children so how can you not take a stab at what a 3 year old might like??

Dinosaurs, dressing up costumes, cars but in my experience mostly dinosaurs!

My three year old absolutely loves playdoh town sets and any play doh in general like crazy cuts. He loves hot wheel car sets. Marvel stuff. Imaginext sets. He's not into megabloks at all anymore. Dressing up costumes.

Thankyou all. Benefits my kids are aged 15, 9 and 1 and I have forgotten what 3 year olds like, kids like lots of different things depending on their likes and interests, my 9 year old likes a cardboard box but that might not go down so well with other 9 year olds

He accidentally found this is got him for Xmas, last week. And has spent hours playing with it with another set of cars I got (as it only comes with one),paur:ClkAsKraXwQRaM8b6q8jVn1DycDeqg7HCGZ4N1aZhirEPVdiXAUniInswzBga8E4RKnHYF4rE78x5xYnIDhMSFPwQxa2SpJoRhZt6wieY5NoofsKb_NISqX-3xIZAFPVH71BYFIjoxBALJLJXBJ7EpYt6y9heg,cdl:1,cid:5882973152050676974&ved=0ahUKEwim7uSo_LTQAhUMfiYKHTq5C2sQgTYIkQQ

Any large vehicle - truck, transporter, train, binlorry, tractor etc. That always did the trick for my DS!
