For my son's fifth birthday I got him a Soldier Force Play set from Big W for $29. He hasn't stopped playing with it since he got it a couple of months ago.

What about Skylanders? My five year old can't get enough of everything to do with Skylanders. There is so much merchandise out there for Skylanders even if you don't have the game for it.

Ben 10 has alway been popular for him as well and there is a lot of variety of things that you can buy for Ben 10.

Lego is also becoming more popular.

I got my 6 yo nephew 'hover soccer' from Australian geographic (sorry can't link). He's incredibly sporty, so I know his other presents are mostly sporting stuff too. He's also getting a sleeping bag, board game, and I think his nana is getting him an iPod touch. Has he got a bike, scooter, skateboard, cricket bat etc? Any of that any good?

Our 5 (almost 6) year old is getting the Skylanders game as his big present original.gif For a couple of little presents he is getting some trash packs, books and small lego sets.

We've also gone in together with my mum to get him and his brother a trampoline.

Our youngest is six and he will be receiving for Christmas:

Lego (our first foray into 'big kids' Lego)
Djeco puzzle
Wimpy Kid box set books (not that he can read them but he loves them being read to him)
Micro Chargers car tracks
Cars 2 dvd
various Mr Potato Heads (he collects these)
matchbox cars
snorkel set

We had an early extended family Christmas where he got a slip 'n' slide and some 'discovery' books about under the sea which he adores!

Bumping this because I'm stuck for ideas.

All my DS (5yo) wants is a Legi ninjago spinner but I can't find one. He doesn't need other lego, doesn't need any more trash packs, isn't really into cars.

The major shared present (for both boys, from us and grandparents) is a trampoline. Doesn't need bike or scooter.

santa is stumped!
