    Birthday ideas?
    baby1at35 posted:
    Tre will be 6 in March. I am finding this age difficult for toys. I am tired of the video game thing and know my brother already got him one.
    So here is his likes: nature/science/rocks (loves rocks!) So thinking like a mineral kit ect. I actually saw a book on minerals/rocks. Seriously he would love it... Any other ideas?
    Art-loves glue, glitter, cutting, drawing making art stuff.
    Superheros...right now loves spiderman and power rangers.

    When I look at some toys they simply look boring and seriously I feel like we have so many. But I want to get him a couple things. Along with some spring clothes.
    Any ideas?

    George turned 6 in January, some things we got him were a yo-yo (one that's designed to return on it's own), a book on how to make paper airplanes, a superman costume I had got on clearance for $2 at Old Navy (we love dress up at our house)

    My aunt got him these little "remote control" robots. They were a couple bucks each at JCP and they work by infrared light. They don't do a whole lot but she got him 2 and he loves them. They spin around on the floor and make robot noises and just take a AA or AAA battery (can't remember which right now)

    Zoobs, Magnatiles, Legos, architectural building blocks (Haba has some nice sets these), Quadrilla marble track are Levi's core toys. He wants a set of the wall mounted Hot Wheel tracks for his birthday.

    They make science experiment kits. I found them in AC Moore around Christmas time. He LOVES them and always wants to do an experiment. We also got him a microscope. He HAS to be the one to use the microscope and won't let anyone help him so he never really gets to see anything on the slides but he enjoys it anyway.

    What about some outdoor sport things, like a tee ball set or a little golf set? Or maybe kroquet (sp). Mine are into hula hoops and jump ropes too

    DD got a microscope and an ant farm for Christmas and she LOVES it. She likes loooking at bugs!

    We got my neighbor who turned 4 a Hex Bug kit (robotic bug) and his 6 year old brother went crazy over it. He is currently working on saving for his own.

    Oh yeah, Hex bugs are extremely popular here too.
