My son is turning 6 next week and I haven't a clue on what to get him. The family got a WII for Christmas and I'm not going to get him a new bike until he learns to ride his old one. I'm stuck on what a 6 year old might be into.....Or what would make a cool gift that I would not normally think of....Something that your child is really into and maybe we should give a try. Thanks bunches!!

What can I do next?

How about a Nerf gun? It shoots Nerf bullets. Does he have anyone else to play with? If so, buy for each of them to use.....

Leap frog is always a good choice, it's fun and allows them to learn at the same it advances with does V-Tech......check those out......learn and play.....

Good Luck and let him go through a flyer from Toys R Us, that will give you a bunch of ideas!!
