Presents for 5 and 7 year old boys

Help! I have no clue what to get my kids as their "main" present. The youngest wants an air guitar and a hot tub for some utterly random reason. My eldest really wants a Nintendo DS. But they have tablets already - technically they're ours that they get to use. I think thats maybe one of the reasons he wants a DS. He probably thinks if it's "his" then he can play on it when he wants. Which wouldn't be the case. He would still have x amount of time on it a day max.

Also he gets really bloody cross and agitated when his time is up on the tablet so I think a DS would make him even worse?

But that leaves nothing I can think of to get him. He's got loads of k'nex and lego already which he loves.

The youngest I was thinking of getting an Amazon Dot because he loves music. (He could play his air guitar at the same time!) Are they suitable for 5 years olds? Amazon Dots, not air guitars!

They both like sciencey stuff and my eldest likes building stuff.

All ideas gratefully appreciated!!
