Maybe that diet of playing I'd Judy not what he does? My eldest never played with toys, wanted human interaction and group activities all the time. She would read, and now she's older, will do screens. I got about 3 department stores full of toys to try and find the one that would engage her.....
But have hope, now she's a teen and does endless cadets, scouts, D of E, etc. I have to make dates to have some time with her.
ohyes I think you're right, and that's fine. He's wonderful company when we're going things together but obv that's not possible all the time and I think learning to entertain himself (other than through computer games) is important.
My older son very much enjoyed construction toys so that was easy.
My DS is similar and has asked mainly for Skylander starter kits for the Playstation. We're also getting him a decent magic set, if that sounds like something your son might like? We figure he'll be able to master the tricks independently, then wow us all with his 'skills'
If he likes Pokemon Go (my son is obsessed), maybe a Go Plus or Gotcha?
