Best Gift Ideas for Little Boys
We’ve all bought those gifts that we thought our kids would love, but they never ended up touching them.
So today, I’ve got my big list of toys that my kids actually play with, all the time. Plus, some other favorites that I know they’d like. I also have 5 gift fails that were never played with at the end of the list.
Most of these gifts are geared towards little boys, ages 4 to 10. A few will work for younger kids. Some work for older kids. And, most are fun gift ideas for girls too.

If you have a boy that enjoys writing and/or storytelling, this kit is cool. It guides them through creating their own 20-page book and art work. Then you mail that in to be bound into a real book. It's a great keepsake from their childhood.

5 Worst Gifts for Small Boys
OK, this might only apply to my kids. Other kids might love these items. But, here are 5 gifts that my kids didn’t really play with, or at least not for long.
This Train Table – The trains and tracks are cool. But the table takes up a lot of space and my boys prefer the floor.
Magic Tracks – The tracks are fine, but the color flashing, light up trains require new batteries after about 1.5 hours of play. No exaggeration.
Giant Ant Farm – It’s really cool to watch them build for a few days. Then they just keep building and changing tunnels endlessly. All 30ish ants died within 3 weeks. I kind of wonder if it was from going crazy in that small space. K, NK.
Kids Record Player – Nostalgic for me, but not as fun for my kids. It’s hard to crank and a bit boring for modern kids.
This Radio Flyer Little Tricycle – I thought flip down pedals would be great. They could scoot with their feet, then pedal. But the pedals are so hard to turn that little kids can’t do it. And, by the time they’re strong enough, their legs are far too long.
