any ideas? he doesn't seem to want anything much and i'm fed up with spending money on things that aren't used much

We got ours a scooter (£10), the buzz game from Argos (about a fiver) and a few other bits and he was chuffed to bits.

How about a day trip to a theme park

This is it

his first fishing pole, do you have a family member who is in to fishing and could teach him?

oh he'll love that nab3 thanks!

theme park is dependent upon the weather isn't it? though hadn't considered a day out

My nearly 6year old loves construction things (lego city and creator), he has also asked for a magic set. Was tempted by an electronic set, but I have bought him a horrendous power rangers thing (at his request) so that is enough.

swingball-he just loves it

remote control k9 (half-price in argos) brilliant-it chases me around the kitchen when I am making tea!

top trumps-narnia

very hard jigsaw

My 6 year old is Playmobil mad, and also likes construction toys (Lego, K'nex, Brio Builder System, Meccano). What sort of things does your ds have already, and what type of activities does he like (e.g. is he very active/outdoor type, or bookish, or into art, or into fighting men e.g. knights etc)?

I know what you mean SEA, I buy DS things that 'I' know he will like and he doesn't.

Why not take him to town and say, you have 20 quid, go wild type of thing. The poundshop is good for this.

oh jigsaw is good, he needs to practice them

last time i let him do that ucm he picked a dolly with a really hard head and it's arms and legs fell off. he got very attached to it and called it 'baby'.

good ideas thanks
