We are girls here in this house, and have no idea what a 6 yr old boy wants for his birthday! He is a typical boy that loves video games; wii etc.. but, I didn't really want to get video stuff; he has so much already, and it's a bit over the budget for me. What other things do boys like at this age? Thanks Moms!

What can I do next?

my go-to gift for all little boys are Bionacles- legos they make a million different "guys" they are fairly cheap and they always seem to like them. I think it is the go-to gift for most moms becuase my boys have all of them lol
