Big Wheel Bike

Radio Flyer 474 Deluxe Big Flyer, Red

Big Wheels are the bike of choice for boys when they are younger. Why? Because you are almost sitting on the ground, flying around feeling like you are going a hundred miles an hour!

Moms love them because they are a much safer alternative for the little guys who THINK they are ready for a two-wheeler but aren’t quite there yet.

Race Track

Hot Wheels Criss Cross Crash Track Set [Amazon Exclusive]

All boys dream about having the coolest, fastest, car like the ones they see on T.V. or driving down city streets. Let them live out their greatest auto fantasy through race tracks. They’re several kinds to choose from.

My favorite is the Hot Wheels tracks that use gravity and buttons to push any of their little cars around!

Tool Set

Durable Kids Tool Set with Electronic Cordless Drill and 18 Pretend Play Construction Accessories, with a Sturdy Case

One thing little boys are fascinated with is being like their fathers and seeing men working. They watch dad build things with his tools and want to be just like him.

Nothing is as cute as a little boy taking his tool-set out to help build a project with his father.
