      @indigoj: You're welcome for the gift ideas... too bad you don't have any boys this age to buy for this year.

      @mihgasper: Video games, as a matter of fact, are an excellent form of practicing hand-eye co-ordination (as long as that's not all they practice lol)... but yes, if you get a 5 or 6 year old boy cars, they will most likely be very ecstatic with this gift as well.

      I think they are a little too young for video games at this age. You surely can't miss with bricks or some kind of car.

      Great gift choices for five and six year old boys, kids can be difficult to select gifts for so it is nice to see such a nice selection of trucks, building blocks, art supplies and other gifts. Great ideas for 5 and 6 year old gifts.
