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

Whether you’re searching for Christmas gifts for your 3 year old or a birthday, I’m now on my 2nd round of 3 year old boys and have learned a thing or two about what they like!

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!

Three year olds are also such fun little people — not exactly a toddler anymore but not quite a big kid! They’re really exploring their independence, starting to use their imaginations, and developing strong opinions about what they like (and don’t like!).

These toy ideas really capitalize on those wonderful features of a 3-year-old.
