Christmas Gifts 6 Year Old Boys want
I am sure it is not only my son who is now obsessed with anything electrical (in fact I know it isn’t as all of his friends are too) so as he is turning 6 I think this is the perfect gift. It can be played at home on a TV and taken away from home.
We currently only have a Wii U and I think for a 6 year old this is the perfect step up. All of the games that have come out are perfect for children aged up to 12 (and older of course) but there are certainly from what I have seen more games aimed at children. Get your Nintendo Switch now.
Skills in 10 Game
This animal planet game is a game of questions. Ask up to 10 questions to guess the animal on the Game Card! Is it a carnivore? Is it a domestic animal? Does it live in groups? Think hard, ask intelligent questions, use your clue cards wisely, and be the first player to win 7 Game Cards. Great for kids over the age of 6, get your Skills in 10 game here.
Osmo – Coding Game
This is absolutely ideal for kids. It encourages children how to code in a really fun way.
It feels like they are playing on the IPad which of course they are. But great for parents too as you know they are learning while they are playing.
We reviewed this a couple of months ago and it was absolutely amazing, I would highly recommend it and it covers all bases! Buy an Osmo coding game here today.
This science kit is aimed at children between 5 and 8 year olds. It comes with a lab coat role play costume too. Along with 30 lab chemicals experiments.
Make Your Own Dinosaur Night Light
We love buying toys that are educational, but fun! This dinosaur night light will keep the kids entertained and they can display it in their bedroom when they have made it.
No Christmas is complete without having to pick up Nerf bullets! This Nerf gun is a perfect gift for boys! Check out this Nerf gun now it’s awesome!
If you are a family who loves playing games like we are this is a great game for all. It comes out whenever we have friends and family around and everyone loves it. Order your Ghost Blitz here, or if you are still not sure check out our detailed review on Ghost Blitz.
Illuminated Apparel Glow in the Dark T-Shirt
If you are looking for a unique kids gift that they will love, look no further than this amazing t-shirt. In the daylight, it is like any normal t-shirt but at night there is a huge glow in the dark area at the front where you can write and draw whatever you like.
Most kids go through wanting to be a spy stage and Freddie is certainly there now. So this game is absolutely brilliant. Basically, the key to this game is to break the safe and get the coins. Get your Safe Breaker game here, or read our detailed review of Safe breaker.
Staccups Board Game
You can never have too many fun family games in my opinion and this is another great present. This is a race against the clock game so will get the competitive juices flowing and is aimed at everyone over the age of 6.
If your kids love reading like Freddie does this is an amazing gift. It is a bookmark that is also a dictionary. Freddie reads in bed every night before going to sleep and sometimes struggles to understand what some words mean.
He currently shouts down to me for me to help, but this is a great present that encourages self-learning. Get your electronic dictionary now, or read our detailed review of the electronic dictionary bookmark here.
A silly and fun game for kids to play either with friends or the family. The idea of the game is to keep Parka Pete in place while trying to remove the ice blocks around him.
The winner is the one with the least ice blocks after Parka Pete has fallen down. It is aimed at children from 5+ Get your copy of Don’t Break the Ice here or read our detailed review of Igloo Mania here.
