This is my list of 10 gifts we have personally given to our children that have stood the test of time. These are the presents that were played with non-stop, that never sat collecting dust. Sometimes it’s so hard to find the right gift. Hopefully this list of 10 items of all price points will help you out if you need a little assistance in finding something that special boy in your life will like. These are the top 10 most fantastic toys that have gotten years of use in our house by all 4 boys. I would gear this list towards kids 7-14. In each case I will try to list several places to purchase so you can price check and find the best deal. The list is in no particular order.
