Girls are easy, but what do boys want?

@OmSigDAVID,
either way the kid isn't gonna remember - that is more my point.

@Linkat,
He is if his parents, or anyone else tells him
in the future: " this was a present from Green Witch
in honor of your birthday
" n then he deems himself
to have been screwn out of a real birthday present.

If it is just GIVEN for the hell of it,
with no mention of his birthday,
then he will not feel cheated.

@OmSigDAVID,
Why would anyone mention it as you say? It just doesn't make any sense - and even if they did - the kid would unlikely care - I know my kids wouldn't even give it a second thought.

Some really good suggestions here. Trains, cars and blocks were all big at our house but I think Mo's favorite things at two years were his wagon and his shovel, often used in conjunction with one another.

Despite having some fancy building toys his very favorite thing was a block of styrofoam, golf tees and a hammer. He would hammer tees into the foam all afternoon. As he got older it was a block of soft wood, some screws and a power drill. He's still a fool for tools and he always liked the "real" ones better than the toy ones.

@boomerang,
When my son was little my wife insisted on giving him non "violent" toys so one of the things he played with alot was the oversized and giant Lego. Keep in mind that at the time I was not hunting and had no guns in the house, nor even any magazines of the sort. What did he build? Giant weapons.

@cjhsa,
Funny - my friend is extremely anti-violent tree hugger sort. She said she would never allow violent toys for her little boys. She gave up - she said it really didn't matter as they would grap a stick or anything else and turn it into a gun.

@cjhsa,
Mo did that too, cjsha! Even though I've never had a no toy gun policy and he has had toy guns as long as I can remember, he still turns everything else into a gun too.

Mr. B used to hunt and my brother is a soldier -- both of them have a healthy respect for guns and while neither of them sit around talking guns I think their attitude rubs off on Mo. So..... good.

@Green Witch,
My nephew loves Take Along Thomas Trains! Activity mats that double as games are becoming popular gift choices, too. Or go for a classic gift of a Lego set.

@Green Witch,
According to me photo gifts and photo t shirts are best gifts for boys.

@Green Witch,
M experience states that little boys love the things that move or make noise. So you can gift them atoy trains to toy cars to toy planes, they love it all. You can get him a set with these. Especially if your boy is only two, make sure to get him something that is age appropriate so that it is both fun and safe.
