his dad wanted to get him a quad but when he sat on it his hands couldn't fit round the brakes, now we're stuck! nanny has bought a new bike. we've got him some little bits but can't think what to get as his main present.

he has a black and decker one really similar... he was the first grandchild on the inlaws side so has been spoilt lol! thanks for your ideas though :-D

scaletrix are good for boys at that age, or that electric bike thing that someone posted,, Halfords.. reduced.
I got my boy one when he was 5, he loved it.

so many sets to choose from on there. I am sure there will be one he woud like.

My little boy is 4 and we have bought him an nintendo wii, peppa pigs boat, thomas trains, mario scalectrix, hot wheels cars, horby set, disney cars bits from the disney shop, chocolate dispenser from Woolworth's. If i think of anything else ill let you know :thumbsup:

If all else fails what about a football table/air hockey?

he has a wii and most of the disney cars bits, he had a tonne of thomas stuff which he has given to his younger brother.. he has loads of hot wheels cars and tracks and he has a air hockey/football/snooker table (all in 1) He has been so spoilt (not badly, he is still a good boy!) thats why we find it so hard to pick things for him!:)

omg he would love that!:-D

what about ]this?
Have no idea what it is but i bought it, looks like a bargain!

My little boys 5 and we've got him the wooden castle from ELC this year as his main pressie plus the knights and monsters etc. We did the scalectrix last year and he loved it although gone away in box now coz of the size and is a pain having to keep getting it out but that's the same with most things I spose:roll:

I bought my son the Playmobil Dark Kinght castle but wish I went for the ELC one, desn't get played with as much I would like, though.

My son absolutely LOVES his junior Meccano sets and doesn't leave it alone - he has ]this one and this one is coming ]http//ww…s_2 (shop around for better prices, though. I think they are £14.99 each at Tesco/Tesco Direct

and anything Lego, can't go wrong with Lego people say! :giggle:

I'm gonna wait till daddy gets home and run all the ideas past him, thanks everyone. I feel a bit more confident that we'll get something he likes now! thanks alot x x:-D

I can vaguely remember when I was tiny that apart from my bike and go kart that my favorite presents that I ever got were a Playmobil Pirate ship and Fort.
