Fisher-Price Little People Wheelies
My three year old son absolutely loves his Fisher-Price Little Wheelies play sets. Each one is made just for little hands. Hot Wheels cars are still a little too dangerous for a three-year-old boy because of the sharp edges and small parts, but Little People Wheelies are the perfect race cars, made with little hands and minds in mind.
The Paw Patrol Paw Patroler Vehicle!
We bought the Paw Patrol Paw Patroller for my 3 year old sons birthday which happens to be the week before Christmas and I cannot wait to give it to him! It's the coolest ride in town because all the Paw Patrol vehicles can fit inside.
All the vehicles that come with the Paw Patroller play set fit inside the big Pawroller big rig vehicle. Includes Ryder and his ATV vehicle!
The Paw Patroller can transport three Paw Patrol vehicles inside, or display six vehicles when opened up. It makes authentic sounds and noises from the Paw Patrol cartoon. It's seriously way cool!
Best Paw Patrol Toys for 3 year Old BOys
My 3 year old boy has a ton of Paw Patrol toys, and that's not an exaggeration! The Paw Patrol vehicles, Lookout Tower, Air Patroller, and even a rug that has all of Adventure Bay! If you want to buy cool Paw Patrol toys for a 3 year old boy, go for the the Lookout Tower, Rug and some of the vehicle toys. All the little figures from those Paw Patrol vehicle toys will fit the other playsets like the Lookout Tower, Airplane and Paw Patroller Truck featured above.
Really Cool Remote Control Cars for 3 Year Old Boys
These little remote control cars for toddlers and preschoolers make the best gifts! My husband really enjoyed racing these little remote control toddler cars around the house with our son. They go pretty fast for a toddler RC car that's for sure. The remote control is round and easy to grip for little hands. There are two control buttons for going forward and backwards. They are bring and colorful and the wheels on these won't scuff the floors mom!
Mission COntrol Chase is a Favorite GIft for 3 Yr Old BOys
My 3 year old stops everything he is doing when the commercial for this toy comes on Nick Jr. MIssion Control Chase is from Paw Patrol one of his favorite shows and he talks and has all sorts of gadgets hooked to him.
Mission Control Chase wears a backpack that deploys a flashlight so you can beam it on bad pups AND a net for catching bad pups. He speaks and says popular phrases from the show.
The deploying net and flashlight are cool but what's really awesome is the fact that he has over 130 phrases that he says and 24 missions that he can go on with your child. That is a lot of missions for a 3 year old boy!
Sports Toys for 3 Year Old Boys (Indoor and Outdoor)
Looking for something a little more active for those boys that love to kick, hit or throw a ball? Here are some of the best sports toys for 3 year old boys! If there's one thing that boys love to do its hit, kick, throw and catch. These toys are designed for your little three year old ball lovin' boy to play to his hearts content.
Vtech Touch and Learn Activity Desk for 3Yr Olds
This is a gift idea for three year old boy that you don't want to miss! The Vtech Touch and Learn Activity Desk has so much education and entertainment built right in! I mean LOOK at this thing! What three year old boy wouldn't light up at the sight of that?! This thing has 160 vocabulary lessons built right in! It teaches children how to write numbers and letters and the proper strokes to do it. It's crazy what kids can learn with their toys while they're having a good time. Your 3 yr old will LOVE THIS!
Educational Toys for 3 Year Old Boys (ABC's & Phonics)
Learning comes so naturally to children that they absorb almost everything around them. From birth through five years children learn rapidly and take in almost everything they see and hear. Educational toys at this age just make sense because a 3 year old picks up on so much. Learning ABC's and phonics comes naturally to them if you surround them with cool toys that make learning fun. These are some of my 3 year old boys favorite learning toys for ABC's and phonics. Each one is designed to make learning the alphabet and letter sounds fun and easy.
Art Desks & Easels for 3 Yr Olds
Getting your three year old his own place to create works of art and practice writing is a great gift idea. You can really give a 3 year old boy a head start by getting him started on creative art projects and more. 3-year-old boys love to paint, draw and write and what better gift than a place of their very own to do such things? An easel or an art desk can be the perfect gift for 3 yr old boys and girls!
The Sit and Spin Toy is a lot of fun for 3 Yr Old Boys
I'm the mom of a busy three year old boy and one of his favorite toys is his Sit N Spin. This classic toy has been entertaining kids for generations, I remember this toy from when I was little. This is one of the best toys you can buy for a three year old because it's fun and entertaining.
The second my 3 year old boy sees this thing, he hops on it and starts spinning. This is one of those toys that even the older kids jump on. The Sit N Spin is cool because kids can control the speed in which they turn it, they can go fast or slow. To operate the toy, you simply sit down, hold on and turn your body!
Best-Selling Ride-On Toy for 3 Yr Old Boys
The best ride-on toy to buy a three year old boy is by far the Plasma Car. This little self-powered vehicle will have your 3 yr old on the move. Ride and glide across any smooth surface in the little car that you maneuver with your own body. There are no gears, pedals or batteries required. This car runs solely on gravity, friction and kid-power. It's easy to steer and drive for 3 yr old and it's tons of fun!
Pla-Doh Toys for Three Year Old Boys
Always a classic!! My three year old boy loves Pla-Doh, can't get enough of the stuff! I like that it's cheap enough that I can buy him more when he messes it up or leaves it out by mistake. Pla-Doh is a great tactile gift that kids can learn with and explore. Creating things from Pla-Doh is a favorite past time for a lot of kids and it's a best seller for a reason. You don't even need a bunch of fancy stuff, just some Pla-Doh and basic dough tools and kids will have a great time.
Educational Wooden Puzzles for a 3 Yr Old
These are my three year old sons favorite wooden puzzles and its also the reason he knows all his colors, numbers and the alphabet. If you are looking for a simple gift that can really help a 3 year old along, this wooden puzzle set from Melissa & Doug is perfect! Three year olds love puzzles and these three are educational and entertaining.
Included in the set:
Building Blocks for a Three Year Old
Not all three year old boys are wired the same, I know that mine certainly were not. One of my children is very active, an athletic type for sure. My other son is very quiet and timid and loves to build and tinker with things at home. Building blocks make a great toy for a three year old who loves putting things together. These Mega Blocks are nice because they are big and easier to grip. At three years old, they certainly are not ready for the little Legos, but these bigger blocks are great for them because of their size and the way the easily snap together and come apart.
Lego Duplo Building Sets for Little Boys
Another building set made just for little hands is Lego Duplo. My 3 year old loves his Lego Duplo sets because they come with cars and people. Lego Duplo are smaller than the Mega Blocks featured above but they are still large enough for little builders. Both of our boys enjoy the Lego Duplo sets, the older one has graduated off to regular Lego sets but still enjoys sitting down with the 3 year old and playing with these:
Blaze and The Monster Machines Toys for 3 Yr Old Boys!
My son loves watching Blaze on Nickelodeon and we've been waiting for the toys to come out!
This is the Blaze and the Monster Machines Monster Dome Playset with a double track and loop! There's two side by side tracks that you can set up and race the Blaze and Crusher. My 3 yr old boy loves this toy! He plays with it everyday and has his daddy change the track up for him.
The Blaze and the Monster Machines Dome Playset comes with two vehicles, Blaze and Crusher and you can race them side by side.
This one is going to be a HUGE hit at Christmas 2015 for boys three years old!
Melissa & Doug Wooden Toys
Melissa and Doug make the cutest wooden toys for 3 year old boys. My three year old has a lot of the Melissa and Doug Wooden toys because they are built to last and they're fun. The car carrier, pounding bench and fruit cutting box are his favorites. Wooden toys from Melissa & Doug are cool gifts for a 3-yr-old boy.
The Step2 Kids WorkBench is Cool!
The Step2 Kids Deluxe Workshop is the coolest workbench setup! It comes with lots of real working tools to create some very cool projects.
Set it up out in the garage next to dads or in bedroom. Real nuts and screws with working tools that kids age three will love! This is as close to the real thing as it gets.
The Step2 Deluxe workbench encourages good hand eye coordination at a very young age. There's a large work surface and over 50 different accessories that come with it.
Pretending & Role Play Toys for Boys 3 Years Old
Role play and imaginary fun are very important for creativity in young children. A three year old should be encouraged to have role play and imaginary fun because it helps build a creative foundation in your child. Simple role play toys can be so entertaining for a three year old. Turn off the TV and electronics and have some good old fashioned imaginary fun with some simple toys like these. My sons favorite is playing with pretend food and items you find around the house.
Nothing Rides Like the Coupe!
This is hands down the best ride on toy for kids. We got one for our three year old boy and he loves it. We bought the original red car coupe but the truck is also very cool. We wanted the little gas station pump that went along with it because we love that it gives something for the other kids to do too. We will probably end up getting the Cozy Coupe truck for our 2 year old because when you have two boys, you need two toys!
Fisher-Price Bubble Lawn Mower
This little Fisher Price lawn mower is a classic in our house. It blows bubbles as your 3 year old pushes it around outside. It's one of those toys that never gets old to them. I don't know what it is about little boys and pushing things around, but they certainly love it. This Bubble Mower is a push toy that can go over concrete or grass. It has little knobs and switches that look realistic to the ones you would see on a real lawn mower.
One thing we did to make it work perfectly was thin out the bubble mixture with some water, that seem to make them flow easier from the mower. This is one of those toys that will not disappoint your three year old and the price point is perfect. It's cheap, fun and will definitely make a 3 year old boy happy.
Dress-Up Fun for Preschoolers
Dress-up can also be a lot of fun and you can buy things and use old things around the house for role play. We like to keep our old Halloween costumes and dress-up items in a trunk for the kids to use. We have old glasses, shoes, and other items that we have gathered over the years from different costumes, thrift store items and old clothes from our home. You should do the same because it's a lot of fun to have a dress-up trunk for kids. Our dress up stuff is probably the thing that kids love most about coming to our house. It's certainly a favorite amoung the preschoolers.
Crawl-Thru Tunnels Make COOL GIFTS!
Kids crawl-thru tunnels are my go-to toy for the boys, no exaggerating. These tunnels fold up flat and can be stored away easily under the couch or in a closet. My boys love going through the crawl-thru tunnel and I'm not going to lie, the thing they do with it sometimes scare me as a mom but hey, they're boys. My 3 yr old son has an older brother who is 8 years old and they both have the greatest time. We have the big red, blue and yellow one but all of them are cool, just be sure to get a 6-footer, that seems to be the ideal size.
AquaPlay Portable PlayLand Toys
My boys will play with these AquaPlay Playland toys forever. They sit outside on the patio or in the tub til they are "prune- fingered" playing with these cool Aqua Land toys. Each one connects to the other (if you are fortunate enough to get more than one). My boys and my oldest daughter enjoy playing in the water and these AquaLand Playsets are so cool because they have these little cities built inside.
