    My three year old is really into tractors and machines so not surprised to see John Deere there!

  2. jenniferb jenniferb says:

    My almost 7 yr old is a mega Lego-fan, particularly Ninjago and Monster Fighters. Delighted to see Lego in so many age categories – just shows the longevity of the toy. Has been the best toy to come into our house!

  3. Alicia says:

    There are also a lot of independent toys that fuel the imagination of little boys, aren't mass marketed or mass produced like robot or dinosaur puzzles by Crocodile Creek, wild west wooden train or Fireman station set for Janod, superhero costume kit by Djeco.. these products encourage your child to learn and play cooperatively with others.
