Just for Boys: Creativity Boosting Toys Your Little Guy Will Love

Calling all moms with boys…have you noticed there’s truly a lack of boys’ clothing and toys in comparison to what’s out there for girls? What gives? No matter where you go, there’s always half the aisle space, half the counter space, half the experiences, or half the selection of offerings when it comes to your little guy.

It’s my mission to uncover clever experiences and fun buys for boys.

First up are TOYS.

Here are 5 innovative and creativity boosting toys geared toward boys…because girls can’t have all the fun (but they’re certainly welcome to play along!).

Chemistry Kit

Boys can build atomic models and learn about the Periodic Table with the Thames and Kosmos 600001 The Dangerous Book for Boys Classic Chemistry Kit available at Walmart. With this cool kit, boys can make plastic from milk, stink bombs, and smoke bombs and learn about all types of metals. Yes, you may be asking for trouble with this kit, but it’s undoubtedly cool. Image via Thames and Kosmos

DIY Kits


This Space Hero DIY kit from Kiwi Crate is super fun and really original. The kits make for innovative monthly subscriptions or really thoughtful gifts. I love that they’re thought-out experiences from crafts to play. This kit lets your boy create his own magical cape and mask. Talk about empowering! Image via Kiwi Crate

Teepee Time


We love a great story-time nook or just a fun area for play. Dollhouses have nothing on this spectacular teepee by KidKraft—the perfect hideout for your little guys. Currently loving this camo tent, too! Available at KidKraft. Image via KidKraft



Imaginative play just got extra creative with this Deluxe Workbench with Tools by KidKraft, complete with rotating saw with pretend blades. Your busybody will be busy bee with this! Image via KidKraft

Wooden Play Sets


If you want a play set experience tailor made for your boy, try the Everyday Heroes Wooden Play Set, the Mega Ramp Racing Set, or the Pirate Ship Play Set, all by KidKraft. All of these interactive play sets make for wholesome, old school fun for hours of story telling and dreaming. I love that the Everyday Heroes Wooden Play Set has three floors and ten rooms—Barbie would be jealous. Image via KidKraft

Activity Car


I love this versatile Activity Car by KidKraft for toddler boys. I’ve only seen this at a specialty boutique once before, but now you can get it online. I think I just scored a win for my soon-to-be two year old! Imagine the hours of play! Image via KidKraft
