My DS is 6 next week, we have got him a new bag for school, a couple of minecraft figures, a science experiment kit, a new book to read for bedtime and a couple of tops. We are also going to be doing up his bedroom which he is quite excited about (New bed & wardrobe) Grandparents are getting him new football kit.
I picked up yesterday at Sainsbury’s half price toy sale a remote control digger (they had cars as well) which we will give him for Christmas.
Football goal for garden went down well last year.
My DN's bday is in January too, and instead of getting her any more toys (she gets enough at Christmas!) we get her tickets to the pantomime. She's getting a bit too old for it now, so might buy her a zoo keeper experience instead.
Magnatiles / Magformers Walkie talkies (proper ones - we have binatone ones) Imaginext sets Bedroom things - nightlight, new duvets, new wall art Crocodile dentist game Magic set (wooden Melissa and Doug one is fab) Wooden domino rally set Science experiment kit Bath bombs Remote control car (proper one for outdoors)
DS is 6.8. I haven't started buying yet but some of my ideas are:
Football strip Magnetic football league Kapla Lowdoor is this any good??? Walkie-talkies to share with 4 year old DD Giant Jenga for the garden Minecraft for the PS4 Origami pad Books Story CDs from bookpeople Lego torch/Lego watch Labyrinth game
He doesn't really play with toys much, just spends most of his time making up games with his sister so I'm finding it quite hard to come up with ideas.
DS will be 6yo in November. Apart from a new bike (like your ds!) he'll be getting:
CD player for his audio books. Playmobil campervan. Spongebob boardgame (he's a Spongebob addict). Wooden train whistle. Where's Wally Marble run (my house is full of cardboard loo rolls sellotaped together to make marble runs!) Map of the world for his wall, framed (from Tiger). LED lights for his bedroom. Wooden paint your own dinosaur. Jigsaws.
Then things like stickers with his name on, random Playmobil figures from flea markets, character pants. I'd like to get another boardgame - any suggestions welcome! He LOVES Pigs in Pants, by the Orchard company.
Logoplanter we got DS good walkie talkies last year - HUGE hut, have been played with all year. We have a dog, so plenty of opportunity in the woods. And we have lots of picnics with friends with dc and they use them together, heaps of fun! They are Motorola TLKR and we got them on black Friday on Amazon for about €15.
