DS turns 7 two days after Christmas so I need two lots of presents. He doesn't need a new bike or scooter etc and annoyingly isn't into Lego.

Am going to get him a coding robot but otherwise I'm completely stumped.

What are you getting your 7yo boy?

My 7yr old is very much into bakugan at the moment and I imagine most his presents will evolve around them. But robots, dinosaurs and pokemon are also big hits

Small sewing machine. Loves to make stuff

I might try him with knitting though!

@duckling84 not heard of this but looking in Amazon looks like something he would like. And not too pricey! Thanks

My 7yo sons list consists of Lego, Harry Potter, and Harry Potter Lego.

To break things up a bit, I’ve also got him a box set of horrible history books, theatre tickets, Pokemon cards, and some Disney- themed hot wheels cars

DelurkingAJ Sat 26-Oct-19 14:23:00

All the Lego.

I’ve gently suggested he might like a bike, which he seemed to think was a good plan. Which in turn means that family can buy all the accessories.

For his birthday the game Operation and a 3D globe jigsaw went down very well.

What are labyrinth & ticket to ride @Equimum ?

Ds only wants Lego. I am getting him Star Wars themed aqua beads. Other than that I have no clue.

Previous successes have been a telescope, build your own jet engine set and hand held arcade game console.
