Gift Ideas for Preteen Boys

Dinomite turns eleven this month!  I can not believe it.  How did time fly by so quickly?  I can still remember the day I held him in my arms for the first time like it was yesterday.  Yet at the same time, it seems like forever ago, as there are so many memories with him from over the years.  Only two years left and Dinomite will be a teenager.  Ack!  

Dinomite is in that tricky preteen phase where there are very few toys he still plays with.  However, the toys he does play with he LOVES.  When he's not playing he'd prefer reading books, listening to music and playing video games.

As his birthday's coming soon, I thought I'd share his latest wish list, just in case someone else is looking for gift ideas for preteen boys.  Enjoy!

Just over the past couple of months Dinomite has read the first two books in the Percy Jackson series.  He loves them and is begging for more.  He's also discovered that there are movies based on the series as well as a few other great resources to have.  I'm so excited that he has a new series to enjoy!

Dinomite loves his movies!  This year he's become quite taken with a few new collections and of course wants his own copies.  Mind you he's very good at skipping over inappropriate parts if any come along (Fast & Furious), so that he can enjoy the main aspects of each movie which he loves.

Dinomite is head over heals in love with American history right now, especially when it involves war, military, and firearms.  He is craving more and more information.  Our library system in Virginia is nothing like what we had in New York, so we're finding it more and more important to create our own library at home.

To go along with Dinomite's newest passion of history, military, and warfare, we have introduced Mega Bloks Call of Duty sets.  Because really, what toys are there for kids who like stuff like this?  He received his first two sets last year at Easter and has begged for more ever since.  Dinomite loves that they work right alongside his LEGO pieces.  

Note: We do not let Dinomite play the video game associated with these sets.

Dinomite has developed such a passion for music. He's listening to his Pandora stations ALL THE TIME.  What he wants now is hard copies of his favorite music he can listen to and download to whichever device he wants or to use while in the van which has a CD player.

The world of Harry Potter is still loved and alive in our household.  I believe it will be for some time.  A wish list wouldn't be complete without requests for items related to the books and movies.

Dinomite has always loved cars. Those who have known him his whole life know just what an obsession this was as a toddler.  Years later, the obsession is coming back.  This time, it's even more specific than before!  Who knew an eleven year old would be so obsessed with the 1969 Dodge Charger?

There has never been a time when Dinomite didn't like dinosaurs.  With every new Jurassic World movie comes another wave of dinosaur madness.  I love and support this as it reminds me he's still the three year old little boy way back when.
