6yr old mad about Karate Kid- What to get him as a prezzie?

Need to buy a gift for a 6yr old- he's absolutely mad on the KK since watching the film... I've google for stuff related to the KK but looks like there's only DVD's about. budget is £15.

Suggestions appreciated.

Could you not enrole him in a local Karate club?

karate outfit, should be easy enough to get. Doesn't need to be "Karate Kid" branded.

good idea-great thing for kids to do-altho-its not ACTUALLY karate they do in the latest movie.

its kung fu,yet they still call the movie the karate kid.

I've not seen the new one yet but the old one had a school badge for the outfit. If the new one does then maybe pick up a patch too for the outfit too or if simple enough to recreate then do your own?

Well times have changed when I was a lad we all watched the Bruce Lee films and spent all break and lunchtime being Bruce Lee. Its such a shame as it teaches an individual discipline and how to be a better person in my opnion

The Jackie Chan back catalogue on DVD? Should be available pretty cheaply and most are suitable for kids as the action is more choreographed slapstick than bone crunching violence (other than Chan actually breaking his own bones for real).

I'm talking about the older stuff, not the Hollywood era.

X) amazing

2 months into the martial arts training i did i was taught how easily snap someones neck in a fight oO never used it on anyone though

Id get him the kit, 15 quid should get one no probs and then he can start karate or something in a coupleof years once he knows not to use it on his mates lol

Bought my daughter a karate dress up set from build a bear (complete with different coloured belts) . Think it was about £8-£10. Supposed to be for Build a bear teddy things but she dresses her scooby doo in it

now please, for a know-it-all to confirm that they actually use these in the latest film so i can buy em?

liked the idea of a costume but thought too much hassle to find out what size he wears etc- he is quite tall-ish. will 'like' all comments. pity theyve done away wi' rep.

No they don't use nunchucks in the film!
