Walkie Talkies
These kids walkie talkies feature an impressive 3 mile range and 22 channels enable long distance play and open a world of possibilities within your child's outdoor adventures! Your kids can keep in touch with each other while hiking, spring outing and summer camping

“Hey buddy, where are you?”
“In our secret clubhouse. Don’t bring any girls!”

If you were a boy, or knew a boy growing up, you know how important secret communications are. They come up with secret codes, secret clubhouses, and secret handshakes – it’s part of growing up (some adults do it too).

Walkie Talkies give them the freedom to talk over long distances (i.e. house-to-house, front yard to backyard, etc. This 22-channel set of walkie talkies can give them a lot of running room with up to three miles of unobstructed distance, though we doubt they’ll use them anywhere near that far.

They are easy-to-use, easy-to-read, and even have a built-in flashlight for those night adventures (or when they stay out too long). The speakers aren’t clunky and hard to hear like the ones when you were younger. Instead, these are crystal clear, making even the faintest whispers heard “loud and clear”.

And, as an added bonus, since these have such a long range, they can be used in amusement parks and other large-venue spaces for you and the family to stay in touch with each other. It’s a literal win-win situation for you and for your children.

Liberty Imports Sport Boxing Set with Bag and Gloves

Liberty Imports Sport Boxing Set with Bag and Gloves
The spring mounted stand returns the punching ball to you after it's hit and is much safer than a swinging bag

Little boys get into fights, it just happens. However, they may just be looking for a way to release some of their extra energy. At this age, they don’t really know how to do that. So, give them a SAFE way to release their pent up energy with a boxing set perfect for them.

This is a height-adjustable boxing set that works for children of all ages, though it is designed for kids between 3 and 8. It can be adjusted down to 30 inches and up to 43 inches, meaning most kids will be able to hit it with a jab, roundhouse, or an uppercut with ease. The weighted base makes sure that they don’t send it across the room or through a window and the boxing bad swivels to make it easier to deflect the heavy punches they punish it with. An added benefit that is easily overlooked is that this is a great way for them to exercise without “exercising”.

Since a boxing bag can be tough on soft knuckles, it comes with a set of boxing gloves to keep their hands “baby soft” while giving them all the padding they need to let loose. This is the perfect kit for any child as they can play alone or with their friends. And don’t worry, this bag won’t hit back too much. If it does, teach them how to duck and dive – more exercise without “exercising”.

  • When you get 4 discs in a row you win

For the days when the sun has decided it doesn’t want to play nice, you need inside options that won’t end up costing you. While laser tag in the house sounds fun (until they careen over the couch and break a light fixture or worse), you really need something that is a little tamer.

Connect4 is a game that transcends generations. It’s a simple game with a simple concept; it’s basically a modified version of checkers. All you have to do is line up for colored dots in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) while trying to keep your opponent from doing the same.

  • Kids Combat Vest, Top Selling Item, 5 Star Customer Rating
  • 600D PVC, Fully Adjustable Straps, Woodland Camo
  • Fully Adjustable Straps, 9 Pockets

A six-year-old’s imagination is robust – one second they are a police officer stopping the bad guys, the next they are a cowboy shooting cans off of a fence, and even part of the army protecting us from the bad guys. Why not equip them with a real “bad boy” army combat vest from KAS.

It’s made from an ultra-durable PVC material that can handle a TON of abuse such as rocks, trees, bushes, fights, and more. It has plenty of pockets for them to store all of their gear, including walkie talkies (mentioned above), glasses, weapons, and secret orders.

Crazy Forts

Sale
Crazy Forts
Endless play for entire family. Easy to put together. Simply connect the balls with sticks and cover the structure with bedsheets to create places where imaginations flourish.

Something else you probably remember from your childhood – forts! Building forts from chairs, ottomans, cardboard boxes (whatever you could find) littered your living room floor and bedrooms. However, your parents probably weren’t near as thrilled as you were with all their sheets and chairs being used for other purposes.

What if you could let them build forts without the need for chairs, tables, and cardboard boxes?

With the 69-piece kit from Crazy Forts, that’s exactly what they can do. This kit comes with connect balls and flexible sticks that allow them to create forts of all types. All that you have to do is connect the balls together and lay a sheet over their fort. This is a great way to teach them how to build (think architecture and physics) while giving them a chance to create a secret hideaway and fort.

The best part, when they are finished, all they have to do is take the sheet off, pull everything apart, and store it – no more moving chairs across the floor and leaving scratches and no more cardboard boxes all over the house! To make it even better, it comes with instructions to get them started and help them come up with their own unique designs.

If you think they’ll want to go BIG, make sure you buy more than one kit.

Magnetic Dart Board

Magnetic Dart Boar
16''Magnetic Double Sides Dart Board - 12 pcs Magnetic Darts - Classic Game - Enjoy the fun of all the same characteristics of traditional dartboard.

It’s hard to imagine a dart board in your home, for a six-year-old. However, this is a great alternative to the real thing. Since it uses magnets, not sharp tips, you don’t have to worry about holes in your walls or doors (or body parts).

The dart board is easy to mount, needing only a nail or screw to hang from (or a sticky hook) and a flat wall. From there, they step back as far as they need and try to hit the bullseye. It comes with four colored darts (in sets of three) to give four players a chance to play. The magnets are well-balanced and strong, made to stick the first time.

If you want to make it more challenging, just flip the dart board over and try to get the most points from one of ten different partitions. It’s a great game for indoors or outdoors, though you’ll probably enjoy it best inside on a rainy day.

Challenge your six-year-old to a game of darts and watch how fast they move to show you how good they are. It’s a fun game that they’ll go to when they “don’t have anything else to do”.

For a six-year-old boy, what else could you ask for?

Things You Should Consider When Buying Toys For Six-Year-Old Boys

Trying to figure out what your six-year-old boy will like is like trying to figure out why they like to play in the mud and bring it inside – it’s just fun! However, we’ve managed to figure it out (somewhat). Everything you need to know is listed below:

What Are They Interested In?

Children are unique. Each child has certain interests (some may overlap). While your child might like the rough-and-tumble life, another child might prefer the safety of a desk or living room floor. If they aren’t a rough-and-tumble child, don’t buy toys that promote those activities (i.e. boxing, laser tag, etc.).

What Is Their Learning Style?

Next, pay attention to how they learn. Some learn by putting their hands on the toys while others like to follow instructions. Make sure you buy toys that match their education and learning style, otherwise, they may throw the toys off to the side to waste away.

What Is Their Personality?

Does your child play with a lot of other kids? Then find toys that can be enjoyed by many. But, if they prefer to be alone, you probably should find toys that they can play without others (i.e. not Connect4, not laser tag). Make sure you pick toys that match their personality – don’t buy what you like, but what they will like. Remember, this is their toy, not a chance to make up for what you didn’t have when you were growing up.
