Best Toys for 3 Year Old Boys

Searching for toys for 3 year old boys? I’m here to help! Keep reading for tested and approved toys for toddler boys!

Roy’s birthday is today!

We absolutely LOVE birthdays around here but I also like to be realistic in what we do for the kids when they’re so young.

Today I’ll be taking him to get donuts and probably the fire station that’s a few blocks away from our house (basically a repeat of his 2nd birthday!).

We’re also having a Cars themed birthday party tonight for Roy and my parents (my parents’ birthdays are next week). With our vacation last week, I didn’t do too much work for it like I have in the past! There was a lot of Amazon priming stuff this time around but hopefully it still look festive and fun! I’ll be sharing a recap post next week!

Now on to gifts. It’s so easy to accumulate so much stuff that kids rarely play with so I wanted to share some of our tried and true items!

1. Cars Legos

Cars legos for a toddler boy! Click through for 14 more ideas for 3 year old boy gifts!

Or any kind of Legos! Little kids LOVE playing with Legos. These are great because kids can still play with the cars even after the Legos are put away.

One tip is gifting them with a plastic shoe box (or something similar) to keep them organized!

2. Radio Flyer Bike

A perfect bike for new riders. Click through for 14 more ideas for 3 year old boy gifts!

This toddler bike is great because the seat adjusts for bigger or little kids. It helps them learn how to pedal without risking a big tumble off of a bigger bike.

Roy actually got this from one of his grandpas last year but he was too little to use it until this year. It’s a great bike for years of fun!

3. Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site Book

The best kid's book that parents will love too! Click through for 14 more ideas for 3 year old boy gifts!

9. Backpack

Help your kids feel independent with a backpack! Click through for 14 more ideas for 3 year old boy gifts!

You can put together a themed gift with this construction site Playdoh paired with the Goodnight Goodnight Construction Site book!

12. Waterbottle

The BEST waterbottle for toddlers! Click through for 14 more ideas for 3 year old boy gifts!

Another dual purpose gift! Kids love drinking out of waterbottles and it’s good for them to drink water! We love this waterbottle because it’s easy to use and spill proof.
