    This is proving more difficult than I first expected.

    My half brother is 5 in January and I have no idea what to get him for Christmas or his birthday. I usually end up buying him clothes, and up until this year I've just bought whatever says age 3+ in Early Learning Centre as though he's very active he's a bit of a slow developer poor lad when it comes to talking and knowing things.

    What do 5 year old boys do?!

    He likes diggers and football if that's any help :)

    is he into Doctor Who? Josh has just turned 6 & is Doctor Who mad, also loves football too, so what about buying him a nice football or a football annual or scarlf/bag?
    go into your sports shops & have a look, get him something to do with the team he supports :D

    I know Mason's a bit older than 5, but what do 5 year old boys actually do? Mason does quite a bit of stuff, but Robbie only properly strung sentences together this year.. :?

    He started school this term, so should I assume he can read? Tell the time? (I've seen some cool clocks..) :think:

    I feel like I should know, but I just don't.. :oops:

    What's your budget?

    Mason's into cars, drawing, cars, books, car magazines, movies, Top Gear, :think:

    Hmm not really helping am I?...his mates are all into Spiderman, Transformers, Dr who etc but he's not interested at all.

    What about a DVD, like Monsters Inc or Cars or something? I bet he's into the Cars movie and there's loads of merchandise for that about.
