Gift Ideas for 6 Year Old Boys

  1. Nintendo Switch Lite
  2. Guess in 10 card game
  3. Lego Jurassic World
  4. Osmo Coding Game
  5. Stomp Rocket
  6. Remote control car
  7. Walkie talkies
  8. Battle Ship strategy game
  9. Crayola colored pencils
  10. Space Explorer stem toy
  11. Joke books for 6 year olds
  12. 5 Second Rule Jr. is great for family game nights

Nintendo Switch

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.
