I've got the 4 - 6 age group covered (trash pack trash pack and more trash pack) but I'm having trouble buying something for my 7 1/2 year old nephew. He isn't much of a reader so books are out (and I don't know what he has anyway). I know he likes iphones but I'm not getting him that!

So what do your 7 1/2 year olds like???

The boys I know in that age group still like trash packs, but also like Lego, Lego and more Lego!

I have a 7.5 year old son. He currently loves Star Wars, Harry potter, nerf guns, spy kits, science, Paul Jennings and roald Dahl books.

As far as presents go he always appreciates a movie ticket or an iTunes card for his ipad x

My 7.5 years olds are getting
Diary of a Wimpy kid books - they finally have the attention span to read a few pages in one sitting!
New Harry Potter wands
Water balloon sling shots
Screaming monkey sling shots
Mini Mario and Luigi remote control cars
Stuff for the pool - flippers, snorkels

They love riding their scooters and playing with nerf guns and they are into wrestling and the Avengers as well.

They have also started to really get into music and love dancing Gangum style and mucking around to other songs that are on the radio. One really like One Direction  biggrin.gif

Star Wars

My DS (just turned 8), got some vouchers for his birthday and he loved going and choosing his own things. Some people scoff at vouchers, like there is no thought, but I think vouchers are great!! Kids have so much these days, it's hard to to buy things they have already or double ups.

As a PP mentioned, movie tickets are fab too!

Lego - that's all DS (7.5) wants.  Though for Christmas, he has also asked for a couple of other things like walkie talkies.

DS is 7 and he wants Lego, a tin tin t-shirt, books and Flintstones bedding.
He is getting Lego, puzzles, books, the t-shirt and a Brumbies jersey. And a marble run.

DS1 has asked for a metal detector, Roald Dahl books, a skateboard, one of those money boxes where the hand comes out and snatches the money, a microscope, a crystal growing kit and Mario games for his DS. He's not getting it all mind you wink.gif
He's also into Lego.
