Present Idea for 8yr old boy

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive November 2006: Present Idea for 8yr old boy
By Tonya on Wednesday, November 15, 2006 - 10:05 am:

I need some ideas ladies I am lost. We bought him so packs of Magnetix's and some cloths and his stocking stuffers. I have no clue for anything else. Jade is done I went overboard on her and am putting some things away for her B-day in Feb. Help ladies.

My ds is almost 9, he asked for Heelys(the shoes with wheels) a chemistry set, an Albert Pujols' jersey, nerf dart tag, and Playstation games. He also loves Legos.

I have a girl that age. She asked for, and is getting, Heelys and a gameboy. Gameboys are pretty inexpensive, and the games are cheap too.

My little boy wants the Magnetix, but I'm afraid he's to young (almost 5).

Well, Ashton is seven, and we got him the big interactive pirate ship from Pirates of the Caribbean, plus some figures to go with it.

We also got him the new Gameboy DS and a couple of games for it.

Hmmmm... what else? a telescope for both kids that I found online on clearance.

a wooden treasure chest that you build yourself, and can also lock.

He's really into Ben 10 this year and wants some of the figures from this.

a couple of games that he's played at school and wants, the regular Battleship, Trouble, and Sorry.

Magnetic Puzzle that is a map of the U.S. It comes with a board, and you can also use it on the fridge. He loves maps and things.

A Star Wars ship that transforms into two robots or something...

These are just a few things I can think of off the top of my head....

Where do you get the shoes with wheels? My 6yo has asked for those...

Tonya, it's hard to say not knowing what he likes or what he already has...

Does he have a DVD player for his room?


If he has an older gameboy maybe get him a newer model or the nintendo DS lite deal? and a game or two.

New board games and card games are ALWAYS a hit at our house! It is something we can all sit down and do together. My boys love Uno, Twister, Dominoe's...

Remote control toys- boats and hummers are always a big hit too.

Hey, Conni. A website called has a good selection of Heelys. I don't know if they can ship to Costa Rica but it will give you a good idea of the different styles.

FYI - My 8 yr old DS brought a note home from school yesterday banning heelies. It said they are not proper shoe wear for school and can cause injuries.

By Debbie on Wednesday, November 15, 2006 - 11:53 am:

Conni, I ordered mine online. They run small, so get a bigger size. My ds is a size 2 and I ordered the 3. They are just a liitle bigger then his 2-1/2 size new shoes. Mary, my ds can't wear them to school either. He doesn't care, he can wear them everywhere else.

By Conni on Wednesday, November 15, 2006 - 07:07 pm:

Thanks ladies (sorry to interrupt your thread Tonya!) !!!

They can wear them at the school here. But they can't roll down the halls??? Yeah right! I would so be rolling to my locker and the bathroom. lol We saw a lady in the mall pulling two kids behind her. They both had on heelies. Cute.
