1-3 years old
Abacus - I LOVE these and they're great for hand eye coordination as well as learning to count.
Gro to Pro Triple Hit Baseball - If my youngest loves baseball as much as much as my big boys, this will be a great way for him to start learning the game.
Potty Training Book - Diaper days can't be over soon enough, right? This is a great board book to get them ready.
Stroll 'N Trike - This is a great gift to last awhile. You can strap in a smaller child for the ride, the transition to steering, learning to pedal, then a classic trike.
Little People Wheelies - Little people are so darn cute and the wheelies are perfect for little hands. This one is pretty cute, too.
Mickey and Minnie Duplo - How classic is Duplo? Combine that with the love of Mickey and you have a perfect present!
Mega Bloks Racing Rig - The regular Mega Bloks are great, too, but my little man especially loves the cars!
4-6 years old
Lego Junior - Same Lego pieces as the normal ones, but these sets are easier to build and 4-6 year olds can do it themselves. Once they outgrow the easy stuff, just mix them in with your other pieces.
Little Tykes Drone - This one is great, especially if they have big siblings who have drones on their list! If they're on the older end of this age group, I may go right up to the bigger drone, though.
Bike Helmet - If it looks super cool, I promise you'll have less arguing about wearing it!
Hot Wheels Ultimate Garage - I think most boys love cars so in my opinion, you can't really go wrong with Hot Wheels.
Art Set - We blow through crayons and markers, so it's a no brainer that art supplies arrive for Christmas around here.
Yeti In My Spaghetti - We don't have this game...yet. But it's the most requested item from my 5 year old this year!
Imaginext - Both of my boys have loved these and they make a great "big gift". The people are interchangeable and will work on any Imaginext. I love the batcave one, too.
7-10 years old
Monopoly Here and Now - We got this game last Christmas and it's a really fun one for the whole family.
Baseball Bases - What's better than a game of backyard baseball? One with an official base path! The Hubs actually measured and put these in our backyard at the appropriate distance. My boys love playing baseball or kickball on them.
Razor Scooter - These things are all the rage in our neighborhood. The kids race all over the streets on them and my 5 year old has asked for this as well.
Springfree Trampoline - This has literally been the best gift ever, for our whole family. I love the Springfree Trampoline and it's made for so much more outdoor play this year. Add in the Tgoma system and they're doing math, spelling and games while exercising! You also don't have to fret about safety with this one!
Drone - This one is under $100 and I saw it recommended as best bang for your buck. I don't know exactly why drones are so popular, as I imagine it will end up on my roof, but they're at the top of 2 of my boys wish lists. This drone also looks like a great option.
Nerf Gun - I used to be against Nerf Guns, but seeing just how much fun a battle between boys can be, I totally gave in. And I may have joined in on several wars!
Diary of a Wimpy Kid Set - Reading isn't something I have to push around here. My boys love to read and this set is a favorite of my 8 year old.
I sure hope that help's those of you who are boy shopping this year! I think they are easier than girls, but maybe it's just because I'm in boy world over here!
