What Are The Best Presents For Boys?
Our pick of the best presents for boys. Here at Must Have Toys, we are always searching for the latest trend. It might be at a toy or tech fair, via toy awards, top toy listings or tie-ups with TV or movie franchises. Of course, these toys and games are not just for boys but we use this classification to reflect popular search terms. If you can’t find them at your local shops, we’ve included links to Amazon.
Presents For Boys LEGO Star Wars Last Jedi Resistance Transport Pod
To coincide with the release of Star Wars The Last Jedi, there are lots of new LEGO sets out there. This is a mid-price one featuring Finn and Rose minifigures, plus the cutest droid around – BB8. The two minifigures go in the cockpit which has a removable canopy and detachable panels. There’s also a rear storage compartment and weapon store, side stud shooter and dual spring-loaded shooters.
Presents For Boys Funko Pop Porg
Funko Pop are vinyl figures measuring about 9.5cm tall. They were everywhere in toy shops in the US when we were there this summer. They are collectibles rather than toys but a great gift. We think Porg will be the real star of the new Star Wars movie.
Presents For Boys Bot Squad GRiP Remote Control Robot
New from WowWee, this little robot has 50+ sounds and phrases, and light up eyes. Using the remote control you can get him to pick up and move around blocks including all the major brick brands. Take control of GRiP, the hard-working leader of the BotSquad. We think 2018 might well end up as the year of the robots.
Presents For Boys JD Bug Junior Street Scooter
This scooter beat other more expensive brands in a test conducted on the recent ITV show How To Spend It Well At Christmas. It also has an impressive number of 5* reviews on Amazon. It extends to allow for growth. Amazon’s recommended age range is 3-8 years but check height details before purchase. For older children there is the JD Bug Original Street Scooter.

You can stretch him, pump him up or keep him at normal size. Stretch Armstrong himself is on the list of Dream Toys 2017.
