11 Cool Toys for Preschool Aged Boys

I know what you're thinking! It's really early to be thinking about Christmas, but I'm trying to get us in gear and ready for the holidays before the baby is born, so I've compiled a list of some great toys for Preschool Aged boys (or girls!), all of which would make great Christmas gifts!

Some of these toys are things we already have and love, and that I would recommend to any friend. In our house, we have so many toys (and I haven't even pulled out the baby toys yet!), so this year we're focusing on QUALITY over quantity. Every toy we have out, and in regular rotation, should be something that gets quality playtime from Owen, meaning he plays with it often and he's really attached to it.

I've broken down the list into three categories of the kinds of play Owen seems to like the most: active play, building and imaginative play. This helps me make a great list of toys we can guarantee he likes since they're expanding the ways he can play what he already likes to do!

ACTIVE PLAY
Owen doesn't need any encouragement to get up and run around, but sometimes it's nice to have a little direction. We have a balance bike for O, which we've loved, so a regular bike would replace that.

BUILDING
Owen is really into building objects and tearing them down right now. We own the Hot Wheels Track Builder already and we have a lot of fun making race tracks all over the house. I think the rest of these toys would be a great addition to our collection. 

IMAGINATIVE PLAY 
We already own the Volcano Island, and we've gotten some great mileage out of it, so I had to add it to the list for those of you who have dinosaur enthusiasts too.

I could easily double or triple the size of this list and fill it with all the toys Owen has been eyeing at Target and Toys R Us! 

What toys do your kid's get quality playtime from?
