Top 10 Toys for 5 Year Old Boys:
Paw Patrol Zoomer Marshall tops the hot list of toys for 5 year old boys in 2017and into 2017.
Making big waves as one of the top-selling and most loved toys of this holiday season, Marshall is ready for action! With characteristics just like the “real” Marshall, he also has the ability to activate his water cannons, even shoot darts. One of the best features is his movement – he can move forward, backward or even around in circles.
Coming in second among the ten best toys for 5 year old boys this year – LEGO City Advent Calendar.
The wait is over for the new 2017 Advent Calendars from LEGO – and the favorite for boys in this age range is from the LEGO City line. The heart of this set is the countdown to Christmas, but there is so much more – each day has its own surprise for kids, also it includes 7 minifigures and lots of festive holiday goodies.
Making it to the 3rd spot among the top 10 toys for boys 5 years of age is Fisher-Price Imaginext Super Hero Flight City.
For those young DC Comics fans, or for those youngsters who loved the “Batman vs. Superman” movie – here is the ultimate toy for the holiday season. Gotham City and Metropolis sitting next to each other, each superhero can come to the other’s rescue – and fight the bad guys – plus let’s not forget the main highlight – set your favorite hero into flight!
Another toy from the Fisher-Price Imaginext lineup makes it to the “best of” toys for five year old boys this year with the Shark Bite Pirate Ship.
It’s a pirate ship – no wait, it’s a shark! A fun toy for those little lads who love to play pirate, this playset (like others from Imaginext) comes with special power pads to really bring out the personality of the toy with various actions such as shark biting and prisoner snatching.
Marking the next spot among the best toys for 5 year old boys 2017 – Pokémon Z-Ring Set.
With all of the Pokémon action over this past summer, it’s not a huge surprise that this toy would take front and center stage with both boys and girls. This Z-Ring has two ways to play – it can be synced up with the video game or used in real-life action. The crystals that are included bring out various fun actions with the toy.
Basic Fun Lite Brite Magic Screen arrives next on the list.
Okay mom and dad – remember this toy? It’s back and just as fun as it used to be, especially for those creative youngsters among us. But with some differences that make it even better – rather than having the paper background, the special screen goes dark in places where the pegs are removed – so kids can take out the pegs and put them back in, in different places without the light coming through. Other features make this set even better than ever.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles RC Skateboarding Mikey hits the 7th spot among 2017’s top 5-year-old boys’ toys.
For TMNT fans, what could possibly be better than Mikey? Mike on a remote control skateboard! One of the coolest characters ever is fearless on this thing – performing amazing stunts and even getting himself up when he topples. Very cool. 🙂
Yet a third Imaginext toy is stealing the hearts of 5 year old boys, and making their “best of toys” list this year with the Ultra Ice T-Rex.
Last holiday season, the Imaginext T-Rex took the toy world by storm, this year he’s at it again! Three power pads control various actions which bring this big boy to life – and how! He can walk, roar and even shoot missiles and ice bombs. A great toy for those young “dino” fans.
Htting #9 on the list is The Secret Life of Pets Best Friend Max.
My son loved the “Secret Life of Pets” movie – and there are probably millions of other kids out there that also loved it, and would love this toy. This little guy has quite the personality – just like in the film. He can play either on-or-off-leash, and says “thank you” for little pets by wagging his tail. Other features make this toy fun for just about anyone – he can even talk!
The final item on the list of the top ten toys for boys age five this year – Fisher-Price Thomas the Train Wooden Railway Pirate Cove Train Set.
Love Thomas! And this new train set is right up the alley of other young fans. Lots of things for Thomas to do and stay busy, busy, busy to run his errands, while all the time trying to avoid some pretty scary situations! There are just as many or more features with this “Thomas set” as I have ever seen, sure to make any young train lover happy.
