Have you started shopping yet? Sometimes finding things or my son can be tough because he a) has so much and b) I really want him to be excited by what he gets. In this Holiday Gift Guide for Boys I compiled toys we own, have tested and then a few that are on my son’s “MUST-HAVE” list!! It’s officially the 2014 Holiday Season! I plan on doing all my shopping online this year to avoid the crowded stores so I have hyperlinked all the titles here for you to easily shop online.
Uncle Milton Jedi Telescope Star Wars Science Kit
Calling all Star Wars Fans!! The Star Wars Science Jedi Telescope is an electronic talking telescope that helps kids view the amazing world of Star Wars with its ten built-in images. It also has built in audio that teaches children about the similarities of the Star Wars planets and our planetary system. It is fun, educational, and a great gift for your favorite little guy!
The Captain America Shield 3D Deco Light is an awesome wall light that looks like it is breaking through the wall! It is so cool!! Just place it anywhere you need light. There is no need to look for an outlet because it is battery operated. It is a great gift idea!
Use the Force with the power of magnetics! Show your precision and skill in performing up-close, amazing magnetic experiments and tricks using the “Force Push” and the “Force Pull.” My favorite part about this glove is you can switch out the types of magnets labeled for “Force push” or “Force pull” and you’ve got polar opposite magnetized gloves capable of repelling or pulling magnetic objects! The Force Glove comes with cutouts of droids for Force pushing, a light saber for Force pulling, and a fun learning guide! This is a great gift for any Star Wars fan!!
2014 marks the 50th anniversary of the collectible Hess truck. This 3 in 1 collectible features the truck, space cruiser, and scout. It is a great gift for the collector or the perfect time to start your Hess truck collection!
Maxim’s Tumble Tree Timbers 150 piece set brings you back to a time when things were simpler for hours of fun. Their sets are constructed 100% of wood and are compatible with other fine wooden log sets. The tube includes a variety of timber sizes, roof slats, roof supports and chimneys for endless configurations. It is the perfect starter set for your little builders! Kids are sure to enjoy them for years to come!
The Nano Falcon from Silverlit is the world’s smallest Remote Controlled helicopter at just over 2.5 inches. It is so fun to fly indoors or out! It has a 20 minute charge time and it has 8 minutes of flight time. This nifty helicopter can fly left, right, forward and backward, plus rotate (left and right), as well as go up and down, and of course hover in one spot. I am not sure who will love it more, kids or adults!
Up, up, and away! The high-flying Green Toys Helicopter is ready for action! As sturdy and durable as toys come, it’s designed to withstand active play and soaring imaginations. I love how this Helicopter is made in the USA from 100% recycled plastic milk jugs. It is great gift idea for any child ages 2 and up.
Maxim’s Wud Workers Crane is complete with all the parts you need to build an awesome magnetic crane and the best part is you can play with it after it is built because it won’t fall apart! You may decide to keep it as a work of art on a shelf or it can be turned into something entirely different! The set comes with a wrench which is the only tool needed to put it together and take it apart. I love that kids ages 5 and up can complete this project with little assistance and there are coordinating sets you can buy to build your collection! A great product for a great price!
Zing’s Air Storm Firetek Bow is an awesome archery toy. It has LED light-up power for target practice! It fires up to 145 feet and looks great at night! If you have a child over 8 and need a cool gift, this one is for you!
We love Captain America in my house!! This Captain America Helmet provides kids with hours of high-action imaginative play. It has cool light-up battle vision eye ports to help with tracking down the bad guys. This Marvel helmet comes with an awesome rocket launcher that can be hand held or mounted to the helmet. Two missiles are also included. The best part is the universal rail system that allows the helmet to be customized with an array of other Super Soldier gear such as the Recon Rangefinder and the Dual shot Gauntlet (each sold separately). It would make a great gift for just about any young fan.
Marvel’s Flying Iron Man Superhero Figure with Lights and Sound is so easy to play with! Children can pretend to fly Iron man back and forth. The toy has a sensor that lets the character know direction and has different reactions depending on positions. I love that it is soft but still looks like a cool superhero.
This is an awesome toy for the little Superman fan in your life. Kids will have an absolute blast flying Superman around outside. The best part about the Flying Heroes DC Comics Superman is that it is very easy to use. You simply place Superman’s feet on top of the launcher and then pull the cord and let it rip!
Super Sleuth Kit by ALEX BRANDS
We love Alex Toys! This activity set will not disappoint. It allows you to be a spy or detective, solve crimes and mysteries. Included is a flashlight, spy glasses, magnifying glass, secrete marker pen, and finger print case. Super Sleuth Kit-Spy Set is perfect for those cool spy kids on your list!
What a great creation by Playskool! Kids will love the functionality of Optimus Prime, and the idea that his chest opens to store other action figures! This allows kids to really let their imagination go wild, using the fact that kids can move him about quite easily and create their own world and circumstances around him. It is definitely a great addition to the playtime experience, or something that will serve as a great keepsake. This one is a winner.
Little web-slingers are going to go crazy for Spidey’s Spider Strike Plane! This chunky little vehicle is the right size for your little hero, and he’ll have a ton of fun in all his Spider-Man adventures. The included Spider-Man figure fits in the seat, and with the press of a button he can launch two web projectiles at the bad guys! When your child squeezes the figure’s legs, Spidey’s hand shoots out for a web strike! Give your little guy even better Spider-Man fun with the Spider Strike Plane!
LEGO Super Heroes Spider-Cycle Chase
Super Heros Spider-Cycle Chase is my favorite Spider-man Lego set so far! The set includes Spider-man, Nick Fury, and Venom!! The minifigs are awesome but what really shines is the actual set! Nick Fury’s flying car and Spider-man’s bike can transform into flight mode by raising the wheels. Great features on an amazing set!
Imaginext DC Super Friends Superman Playset
We absolutely love this Superman playset! Imaginext makes such wonderful products for children. The toys are so interactive! Kids will love that they can set up Superman and General Zod and make them fight! The action figures are the perfect size for little hands as well. If your child does well with imaginative play, he/she will love this toy.

Girls and boys will love building super-tall skyscrapers to create a 3D city! It’s more than just a puzzle, it’s a play set, too. Little hands can easily fit together the cardboard pieces to create buildings that sit atop a flat puzzle of city streets and cars. The 42-piece puzzle comes in a convenient box with a handle for city fun on the go! Kids will use their imagination to piece together different buildings and let their imagination soar!

Moff Band, a wearable smart toy that turns everything kids do into fun sounds. Kids can wear this smart, connected slap bracelet on their arm and—together with a free iPhone/iPad app—can instantly play the drums, the guitar, tennis, baseball, ninja swords and many other activities, simply by swinging their arms and exercising their powerful imaginations.
Not a day goes by in my house without MagnaTiles being played with. Magnatiles help children build anything they can image. With different sizes and all magnetic the tiles are able to build skyscrapers (with roofs) barbie houses, bat caves and more!! My kids have made anything and everything out of these!
