A very tough task is buying for a six year old! Especially if you have not purchased toys for this age group in the past. It can be very expensive to buy new toys for this small age group, and sometimes they do not last long with this little crowd. So here are some suggestions on what to look for when purchasing toys for this young crowd of 6 year olds.
For the most part, when you go to the local dollar or discount store, you will not find toys that are geared for six year old boys. This is mainly because a lot of the popular toys of this age group are geared toward girls. So you will not find a lot of action figures or vehicles in these stores.
A great gift for any little boy is an action figure. This is a great gift for birthdays and Christmas as well. The great thing about this toy is that it can be used in several of book series. So when your son is older, you can take him to see where he fits in with the other heroes. He can then play with the other kids and learn how to use his weapons.
Another great gift for six year old boys are dinosaur toys. These toys come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. There are small animals like reptiles and dinosaurs that are interactive. There are also bigger dinosaurs like a T-Rex that is quite large, and of course the popular Tyrannosaurus Rex.
These are not only great toys for kids, but they are great gifts for any occasion. For example, a serpent strike has a remote control that makes it very easy for you to control its movements. It is controlled by one of your hands, making it much more realistic than it would be if it was a regular remote controlled toy. It will move around the room and around on your arm. This is great for children who love video games, but it is still fun for the six year old who wants to play along.
One of the latest toys that have really made a splash is the Batman: The Dark Knight toy. This action figure stands approximately three inches tall and is made in the likeness of Ben Affleck as Batman. He is dressed in his Batman suit, and has a knife that is shaped like a gun that will come up through the mask. There is a cool cape that has a Batman symbol on it, and the price varies according to the stores you buy it at.
The last of these Jurassic Park toys is from the Jurassic Park video game. The video game is in turn the prequel of the movie. If you had played the first movie you are probably familiar with the story, so this will be a nice change of pace to keep your little ones entertained. As for the Dinosaurs in the movie, the price on this one depends on the retailer, as well as how many players are in the game.
