Best Toys For Boys
On this Hub I will share with you some of the best toys for boys. I have three boys and we all love to play with toys. I might even like some of their toys more than they do. There are certain toys you can get for a boy that you just can't possibly go wrong with, like Legos, a ball, action figures, video games and classic board games to name a few. Boys are adventurous, love to build things and always want to have fun.
An Unwanted Toy
One of the worst things as a parent is spending lots of money on the one toy your child had to have, but never plays with. Every parent has been there. You don't want your child to be disappointed on their birthday or Christmas so you buy a toy they really want even when you might have doubts about them liking it.
It is one thing when your boy starts to get too big for a toy or the toy is getting to be too childish for them. Especially if they had gotten lots of use out of them. These are the types of toys I like to store away for our next boy. Or at least give them to a friend who can use them. But, the misfit toys that no one ever even liked in the first place is what bugs me. They just sit at the bottom of the toy box and kids always over look them. In some cases I can't blame them. The commercial had kids doing all kinds of cool tricks with them. But, in reality the toy is boring or just plain junk. It seems as though many of the toys today are being made more cheaply. When that is the case it really shows. I used to play Guess Who back in the 80's and it was great. I could flick the people down with my finger. Then when the game was over I would tip it upside down to make the pieces stand up to play again. Well needless to say I had to get my kids this great game a few years ago. I can't imagine doing anything but, gently pushing the pieces down. Never mind tipping it upside down like I used to. I tried once and half of the pieces fell off. You would think that something like this would improve over time. But, apparently not Hasbro. They would rather save a few bucks. I actually got frustrated enough to complain to them but, they just said they would look into it.
It is nice that today I have found ways to help prevent getting bad toys in some ways. Their are all kinds of great review sites out there on the web. I can just check out Amazon for the toy my boys asked for and see what other people think. This can at least give a parent some idea whether their kids will like it. If it has lots of bad reviews then get something else they want or try to find something similar with good reviews.
My boys have always loved Legos. They were never really into the Duplo sets. But as soon as they were old enough to use regular Legos they just couldn't get enough. I can honestly say every boy should have Legos. Currently they love the new Power Miners sets. My younger boy is 6 and loves just using the Lego men and rearranging them with other Lego men and accessories. My oldest is 8 and he loves taking the sets apart and just building his own thing.
