Dads are special. They are our first superheroes and the first men we depend on to make us feel safe and loved. Dads teach boys how to grow up into good men. They teach daughters what kind of man they’d like their own husbands to be someday. Dads are important.
And if your dad is a big kid, getting the right gift to celebrate that is important too.
This selection of toy gifts for dads who are big kids will help you find the perfect gift to celebrate your dad’s inner child.
You just might find that you want a few of these yourself!

2. Hoverboard – Next Best Thing to a Jet Pack
Every dad (and most moms, too!) has been dreaming of having their own hoverboard since the first time they saw the movie “Back to the Future.” And although we still don’t have a hoverboard that actually floats off the ground like they promised (or that jetpack either!!), we do now have this cool Hoverboard balancing electric scooter that at least feels like the real thing.

Just make sure that dad’s health can handle long and sustained bouts of laughter because he’ll be doing a lot of it with this game!
