I'm buying this year for 2 twin boys who are almost 6.
I'm on a budget so 15 p/h is what I'm aiming for or something a bit more expensive they could share.

What do 5/6yo play with?

They are quite bright and have tons of Lego, mind games etc they like playing with.

Is it £15 each or between them? 🙂

It's each.

How about a board game each like Connect4, UNO or Guess Who? Orchard Games are quite good too.

I bought my niece, who is 6, the game Operation for £15.

There are a few k'nex kits for £15 and a couple of mecano junior kits for the same price.

If they like Lego you can't go wrong but not all boys do. One of my 5 yr old twins loves it, one can't do it at all and they both always get loads which makes one sad ! Knex is good. Fingerlings are good if you can find any (don't use amazon) little live spiders scorpions etc are good. Mine have also asked for stretchkins and hexbug bits. Depending on the boys playmobile can be ok at this age but can be too young (not for mine - they have asked for some.but some of their friends would think it was babyish)

Also 'bop it' and 'simon' toys are good for keeping them busy.
