hama beads
plasticine (not play dough)

Polly Pocket if you want to offend at sexist level too

'excavate your own dinousaur skeleton from a block of impenetrable and very dusty clay' thing (bonus points for looking educational)

A spud gum is really messy and annoying - but probably not PC or socially acceptable any more. What about a water pistol - probably not pc or socially acceptable any more either. A tambourine?

(I am thinking of all the things my boys loved at that age - and nearly drove me mad).

Floam. Oh yes indeedy. It's not noisy though. That always scores points in a hideous toy. But it makes up for that in mess and pointless mess at that.

My mum (ever the doting grandma) bought some - thankfully to use at her house.

Now, she'll put up with nearly anything if it makes dc happy, but it was so bad she took it back to the shop and complained. At least it didn't end up here grin
