Gifts for the Hip Boy

July 8, 2015

Little boys these days aren’t into your typical pastimes. It takes more than grass stains and squirmy worms to impress this new generation of trendsetters.

Take a break from TV time with these five adventurous and brain-stretching items.


This is the Way to the Moon by Miroslav Sasek

This is the Way to the Moon is sure to be a hit with a precocious little one (while managing to be a very interesting read for adults too!).


Tin Drum Instrument

Magnetic Robots

Tough little boys and their inevitable roughhousing often leads to broken toys. Get a leg up on your kiddos with these sweet little magnetic robots that break loose (but then come together just as easy) with endless possibilities of color and shape combinations.


Tree House Bed Tent

$45.97 | Pacific Play Tents | Purchase at Amazon

How many times have you found all of your pillows and linens pulled out of the closet and turned into a haphazardly-placed tent? Save your kids some time and yourself some patience with this easy to put together bed tent. This fits on the top of a twin-sized bed (and can also be placed on the floor) for maximum “kids only!” time.
