My son loves his pocketknife and always using it to whittle wood or cut strings.  If you are looking for a knife for littler kids, here’s a good option.

Obviously, this is one of those items that will only work for a child that is trustworthy and that you can count on using it with care.   

12.  Toy Drill
This realistic toy is sure to thrill any little boy!  When our son was little, he played with his all the time and it’s still a popular toy with any little boy that visits our house.

20.  Magnifying Glass
What is it about magnifying glasses that just fascinate kids?  My grandparents had one and I remember playing with it often.

Perfect for inspiring creativity!

23.  Textured Stencils
Our kids love playing with stencils and the addition of texture to these to also create rubbings is so brilliant!

24.  Tracing Paper
I loved using tracing paper as a kid, probably partly because I couldn’t draw for the life of me and tracing paper allowed me to be able to experience what it was like to create a beautiful “drawing”.

31.  Wikki Stix
Your child will have a blast twisting and molding these stix into all sorts of creative shapes!

32.  Bug Catching Tool
I’m ordering this little gadget for our bug loving son.  He’s always trying to catch little critters with his bare hands and it doesn’t always work that well.  I know this will be a hit!

And the reviews of this tool had a lot of adults commenting on how well they love using it to catch bugs in their house.  So who knows, I might end up sneaking it to use myself!

33.  Watch
I think every child enjoys the grown up feeling of having their own watch, and this fun one comes in a lot of different colors!

One of those noisy “toys” that is worth it in my books!

We got this for our youngest but our other kids, ages 4 & 7, have had just as much fun with it!  In fact, they like it better than their bigger kid flip phone because they say it looks more like a smartphone.  It’s held up well and after almost 2 years of being played with daily and really taking a beating, it still works perfectly.

Have a little scientist?  They’ll have a blast making this little robot!

This kit includes the supplies to make your own bath fizzies and then you get to enjoy using them too!  Double fun!

45.  Aerobie Superdisc
Our kids love frisbees, but I’ve been wanting to upgrade to one of these because they are so much easier to catch!
