How We Selected Gifts for 6-Year-Old Boys

I am always looking for educational toys and gifts. The ones that help a child develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills. I like a toy that lasts, but one they will play with for more than a day. Children lose interest in new toys quickly. I look for toys that will have that long-lasting interaction to keep a child’s mind engaged.

When considering gifts for the 6-year-old boy you need to understand who he is and what he loves to do. Is he always outside? Riding his bike. Playing video games. Fishing with his dad. What excites and entertains him, then find something that offers education and stimulation. I want something that lasts and can be handed down to brothers, cousins, or nephews.
