Schleich animals (especially dinosaurs as he loved a dinosaur cartoon that was on at the time ~9 years ago)
duplo zoo
jigsaw puzzles

at this age he was in nursery full time, but at home would only play independently for a few minutes at a time so I mostly played with him (and forgot the housework!)
