The Best Toys For 6-Year-Old Boys on Amazon
6-year-old boys are a tricky bunch when you're trying to find the right birthday gift or a Christmas present to win all Christmases. Keep in mind they're headed into the first grade and are transitioning in big ways (toys that entertained them just a few years ago might not cut it now). Know that slime and oozing bubbles are always a good bet as are robots and dinosaurs. And if you have a little superhero on your hands, you can't really go wrong with Batman. Below, the gifts and toys all 6-year-old boys really want.
For Batman Fans
This toy is on the pricier side, but it'll knock the socks off your little Caped Crusader. The Transforming Batmobile goes from car to upright "Battle Mode" with the touch of a button and the remote also drives the vehicle (it even spins!). The clincher? There's a projectile launcher.
Gross and Cool
This is a slime kit with an alien dissection twist. Open up the pod and get to the alien, then use the included tweezers to dissect the creature. Rescue the hunter from the alien's slime-filled body. The ooze is reusable; store it in the included container for later (and also squish it out the alien's head).
Playmobil really knocked it out of the park with this realistic space set. Galactic guys and gals will love putting the Mars Space Station together and exploring the red planet with the included astronaut and robot figurines. Among the many cool features, the station has a removable roof and working lights. There's also a laser gun, sound effects, and even space crystals.
Best iPad Detractor
This new game from Mattel centers on Mac the Alpaca, a silly pack animal who will spit at you. Race the clock to stack cargo on Mac's back. Can't pack in time? You'll get sprayed. The Amazon exclusive version of this game features a blue alpaca and some unique cargo pieces (like a teapot). The rules are simple and the repercussions are hilarious.
Pop Pop Snotz are satisfying bubbles that ooze slime when you pop them. Some of the bubbles have little Snotz figurines hidden inside—just smack the green slime bubbles to see if you have a winner. There are 60 different characters to collect, including the rare glow-in-the-dark Snotz. Kids can pop the bubbles with their hands or purchase a special Pop Pop Snotz hammer. Just keep that slime off the carpet.
For Dino Lovers
If your little guy loves dinosaurs, he'll appreciate this T-Rex's moveable jaw and terrific paint job. This 5.5-inch creature is incredibly lifelike and accurate (well, except for the size of course). If your dude is into collecting, he can add to his dino collection — Scheich makes a variety of other prehistoric creatures as well as impressive play sets.
For Lego Lovers
This 294-piece LEGO set can create a police helicopter (over 12 inches long when built), sports car, and police car. Set up a high-speed car chase with road barricades, and even cash money. The set includes building bricks as well as 4 mini figures (including a bad guy and three police officers).
Best Science Toy
Beaker Creatures is a popular STEM toy that uses the surprise toy trend (finding out which character they get after unwrapping) to incorporate real science. Kids can conduct an experiment and extract Beaker Creatures collectibles by pushing swirling water through the beakers and tubes and into the reactor pod.
This is 1.3 megapixel digital camera that's easy for small hands to maneuver. It's super intuitive for kids to operate, and features games, photo and video effects, a voice changer, and can record sound. Up to 800 photos can be stored and you can also download your child's shots to your computer with the included USB cable.
