I am a father of two wonderful girls and the cutest little boy! He’s already enjoying what are usually toys for 5 year old boys!
Ever since I found out we were going to have a boy I started thinking about all the neat boy toys I’m going to buy.
I still have some of the toys I had when I was a kid and I’ll pass those down when he gets older but for now I’ve gone into super research mode and want to maintain up to date toy pages on this site for all ages.
This post is going to focus on toys for 5 year old boys.
We have many friends who either have a five year old or who once recently had a boy that age.
I hope all my kids grandma’s are paying attention! Instead of calling or emailing me about what toys to get…visit this page first!
Toy RC Vehicles
Age five seems to be a good starting point for boys to start liking toy RC vehicles to drive around the house and outside on the driveway.
There is a great selection specifically geared towards five year old boys. Parents say this group of RC cars are the perfect beginners choice.
When you click over to the page make sure you watch the video. Did you know these can even drive on sand and water?
Great Building Sets
After reading a ton of parents comments it appears their boys start liking building sets when they turn four.
Age five seems to be when it really starts to hit home with them that it’s a super fun activity. Parents love it because they seem educational and help with fine motor skills.
The number one set to consider for this age group is the Magna-Tiles clear colors 100 piece set. It’s got over 400 reviews and the toy gets a five star rating.
You can’t have a building sets list without Lego’s right! What better one than a Star Wars one!

Cool Board Games
Kids at the age of five are able to sit down and focus better than they did at age four. There are several fun learning games that are perfect for mom and dad help them with.
There are also other popular family games such as Monopoly Junior, Busy Town and the one that most intrigues me, Star Wars R2-D2 game.
One of The Most Cool Toys I’ve Seen For Age 5 Boys
This Neat-Oh dinosaur play set is really cool! Once you unzip the box it unfolds into an amazing playset. It includes two dinosaurs but you can buy additional ones.
You can also put vehicles and other action figures on the playset. Best part for parents besides seeing their five year old having fun? It’s easy to clean and it stores flat. Perfect for play at home or on trips.
Sports and Outdoor Toys For 5 Year Old Boys
Sports and outdoor toys are fun and a must for five year olds. They are a bundle of energy and you don’t want that in the house 24/7 right? These toys are perfect for our kids getting outside, having fun and getting a bit of exercise too!
The Black Max football is one of the best to have fun throwing and I personally recommend this particular trampoline to parents through my kids health and fitness informational website.

Final Thoughts on Toys For 5 Year Old Boys
There are some great toys for 6 year old boys they may like as well and I’m sure there are some cool 4 year old one’s too.
When buying gifts I always like to ask my kids what interests them and also what they have fun with the most.
I then check out reviews and prices. There’s no reason why we can’t be confident with our purchases right?
I think there are some super great options on this page for your five year old.
You can’t go wrong with any of the Morphibian RC cars. Those are highly rated by parents and kids alike.
