My 6 Year Old Boy’s Favorite Toys
My son loved all of these toys when he was 6 and played with them often.
When I wrote this, my youngest son had just turned 6 years old. He’s always been a typical little boy. He loved and still loves football, fishing, wrestling, ride on toys, trucks, and many other things.
When he was into wrestling, the action figures were a lot of fun for him, and he loved the wrestling ring toy.
The best money we ever spent on toys, was the toughest mighty Tonka dump truck. It lasted for years and years and it was a favorite toy for several years in a row.

Building Toys For 6 Year Old Boys
Little boys love to build things, and even more than that they love to smash things. What better way for them to build and smash than to play with legos, K’NEX , gears, or other building toys? Young kids could spend a life time building, smashing, and playing pretend with their legos. I remember one time when my son was around 4 I built him a small house with legos and he played with it and the lego men for hours. At age 4 he wasn’t quite able to build houses, but now he can.

Bin Play Sets For 6 Year Olds
When my oldest son was around 5 or 6 years old for Christmas I bought 4 plastic boxes and filled them up with toys. One had dinosaurs, one cowboys and Indians, one had matchbox cars, and one had blocks. I put stickers on the boxes so he’d know what was in each one also. What’s so great now is you don’t have to create these bin toy gifts anymore because now there are several great ones available to choose from. My son loved those boxes of toys and enjoyed having separate boxes for his toys.

Video Games or Electronics For Kids
Both of my boys love video games,even when they were 6 years old. I’ve always been careful about finding games that are age appropriate, so I know how difficult it can be to find games for young kids. If you know what system they have and what they like, buying a game is easier. You can see some great options here on Amazon.
If you’re not sure about what system they have, a tablet or a handheld gaming system might be a great choice. There are two options featured below.
