Present ideas for a lively 5yo

My friends son is lovely, but he is so different to mine, and I think I frequently get it wrong with his presents.
My son is not very physical, he loves to play with Lego, or read, he's really such a homebody.

What do active 5yos like to play with please? He's not a sit down and amuse yourself chap, he likes to be moving smile
He's not into 'characters' or any particular type of toy. He plays with other people a lot, and enjoys that and pretending games, but he's an only child, so I'd like something he can play with by himself really, when he hasn't got friends round.
Budget £25-30

Promise I'm not a spammer, but I came across a catalogue by bright minds - had loads of interesting toys that I think would give you some ideas. I've got a four year old and loved some of the things there.

What about stilts?

Stilts sound like fun! Yes. And definitely something he can play with when on his own, thanks! grin

What about a Bungee Bouncer - always popular with the younger ones in our family. [Currently £12.92 on Amazon]

Ooh, those are both fab too!
Those bungee bouncers look like something I should get my DS too, to encourage a bit more movement grin

Some great ideas, thank you so much!
