I would love some ideas, under $10, for stocking fillers for my son.
He is getting one main present but I would like him to have a few little things to open as well (no socks or undies though!).
I have bought him stationary for school for next year and a handball.
Any other suggestions?
Thought lego but would probably go over the $10 mark and I'd like a few little things....

You could try:
Lego mini figurine - about 5.95
National Geographic shop has great stocking fillers for boys under $10- eg they have pens with invisible ink and mini volcano kits
I saw that Target had Lego head pencil cases which are very cute
A book in a series he loves eg Zac Power, Wimpy Kid or similarBag of lollies or a big candy cane
Sunglasses or cap
Trashpack figures - can pick these up at Woolies
Card game
Moneybox
Cheap kite - Aldi have some this week
Beach towel, can find these for about $10 on sale sometimes ( pillow talk etc)
Puzzle - Kmart usually has a good inexpensive variety

The Reject shop had lots of great ideas.   I got a plastic cup with straw and lid (we make lots of slushies and milkshakes here). M&Ms in a tube with a personal fan on it.  Lots of different American candies too.
