Gifts for boys who love to build

Blocks, models and racetracks highlight these holiday gift ideas for boys who love to construct things.

Holiday gifts - Toys for boys who love to build

  • LEGO Mindstorms EV 3 (LEGO, $350) — Perfect for builders of all skill levels, it provides younger builders easier access to the build-and-play program experience, plus offers more advanced users the foundation to write their own program.
  • LEGO DUPLO: My First Train Set (LEGO, $45) — Young builders have the opportunity to be the conductor and operate the buildable and motorized train as it speeds around the track.
  • Hot Wheels Triple Track Twister (Walmart, $36) — Hot Wheels tracks are a whole lot cooler than they were when we were kids. This set features three tracks, two controllers and an awesome crash zone.
  • Laser Pegs Runners (, $20) — Each of these kits comes with clear plastic pieces that snap together to build a variety of vehicles. Then, when the model is connected to the battery pack, the entire thing lights up in bright, colorful LEDs and it begins to drive around!

Gifts for boys on the move

Boys (and many girls too!) seem to be in constant motion. Take your kid for a ride with one of these ride-on toys or bikes.
