We have some very cool toys and board games for kids that age available through Discovery Toys. A couple of my favorites are Number Rings and a new dice game called Lumps. They are both really fun and popular among boys of this age - and the parents will enjoy playing too.

My 8 year old is into war. He is asking for a toy tank (GI Joe?) and weapons. He loves toy guns of any kind. He loves legos. He wants a new razor scooter (his is trashed) and a good skateboard. He loves the games Monopoly and Battleship. I don't know if your son already has those or not. He also wants a toy "mixer" to practice being a DJ. He's really into music and I have no idea if anyone even makes such a thing.

It all depends on what the boys in into. If he does sports or anything like that. At that age my boys wanted video games and bikes. Normally I would tell people gift cards cause it's easier to get them something they pick out that is expensive by combining different ones gift cards or money than to ask for something expensive.
