vehicles, construction and the odd pirate
A world of adventures! Travel back in time to prehistoric days and do battle with terrifying dinosaurs, sail away in search of fierce pirates or go medieval and encounter knights in shining armour - all scenarios likely to give nightmares to scaredy-cat mums like me (with the possible exception of that handsome knight in shining armour :-) ) but fortunately boys are made of tougher stuff!
Then there are truly classic boys' toys - nowadays also appreciated by girls - like wooden train sets and cars, of course, in all shapes and sizes, from simple wooden ones to remote-control vehicles, and with them come the garages and even the occasional airport.
When young inquisitive minds turn to construction new classics like Lego, Mega Bloks, Meccano and Playmobil are hard to beat, though some of the new guys on the block, like Transformers and Power Rangers, can also command quite a following.
One thing is for sure, this category, boy's favourites, entices you into a truly exciting world of fantasy and adventures.
