Mamanista’s Gift Guide for Boys

Here is a list of our hottest toys, gifts and gadgets for boys this holiday season! And, once again, don’t forget to shop for more great gifts at your local toy store for Small Business Saturday tomorrow, November 24th!


1. Ezy Roller

This is one of our favorite outdoor toys EVER!  Not a luge, not a bike, not a scooter, the EzyRoller moves like a snake, without chains or pedals, using easy right-left leg movements.

2. CuddleUppets

We love Cuddleuppets!! We have a review of Cuddleuppets here, but basically, they are one of my favorite travel products for kids. And with their infectious commercial jingles, they are on every kid’s list this year.

3. Plan Toys Airport

The PlanToys Airport is not only super eco-friendly, but its has tons of accessories to keep little ones busy for hours!

4. Lego Darth Vader Head Lamp

Coolest. Headlamp. EVER.

5. Mustache Pacifier

We need this. Badly. What a great conversation piece! As if babies can be any cuter…

6. Mattel Hot Wheels Angry Birds Track Set

This is such a fun toy for Angry Birds fans! I love that it takes an electronic game and makes it active and real!

8. LEGO City: The Mine

Lego City sets mean hours of fun – and this one has almost 750 pieces! The entire Lego City series is incredible cool and very popular – and is selling p out, so don’t wait to buy this one.

9. Squirt N’ Jam Bath Hoops by PlayWow

How fun is this? And it would be great for traveling – just deflate and pack to bring to Grandma’s.

10. Survivors Series

Of course Diary of a Wimpy Kid is super popular – but so is the Survivor series! By the author of the best-selling Warriors Series.

11. VINCI 7-Inch Touchscreen Mobile Learning Tablet

Finally a tablet made especially for kids!! Download apps, play games – and it comes preloaded VINCI Early Learning Apps!

12. Toystate James Bond Remote Control Aston Martin Vanquish V12

Ok. Technically this is a toy, but I think some grown-up boys might think this is pretty awesome, too!

13. Kazam Balance Bike

The Kazam Balance Bike ($99.95) was picked as a top outdoor toy by Parents Magazine in June 2011, and I can understand why. My 3 year old son learned how to bike on this easy-to-use balance bike.  You can read our full review here.

14. Kindle Fire

If an iPad is on your child’s wish list but would break your budget, consider the Kindle Fire. At $199, the Kindle Fire is an affordable tablet. I can use the Kindle Fire to read ebooks, browse the web, Tweet, Facebook or watch movies, and my son can read interactive ebooks or play educational apps. Click here to browse Kindle Fire Apps for Kids. Some of our favorites are Alphabet Car, Dr Seuss’s ABCs, Where’s My Water and Cut the Rope.
