There are thousands of toys designed for five-year-old boys. However, not all of them will be winners. When it comes to picking out toys for five-year-old boys, you have to think like them. The toys may look good to you, but a five-year-old boy sees things differently. They are extremely imaginative, making a pair of simple sticks into swords.
Today, we are going to show you 25 toys that your five-year-old boy(s) will love. We will show the most popular toys and gifts to help you narrow down your search. After you’ve read through this list, you should be able to finish out your shopping list. If not, you’ll have a much better idea of what you should be buying.
Now, let’s look at those winners!
Mattel Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots
- The classic boxing match between Red Rocker and Blue Bomber
- Players have one goal: knock your opponent’s block off
- Slide your fighter around the ring and press the punch buttons to get the right strike
Remember the days when you could take out your aggression in a safe, non-violent way? The Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots from Mattel are back and they haven’t changed much. There are two robots who stand facing each other (one red, one blue) and they punch when you press a button behind them. The goal is simple – knock the other player out!
In fact, this sounds too simple. But, as you found out, it’s not nearly that simple. You can do everything right and still lose your head (i.e. your fighter’s head). When you lose, your head pops up and the fight stops. To start over, you simply push the fighter’s head down and it’s time for ROUND 2!
This is an easy game, with just a few moving parts. If something pops off, you pop it back on and go again. For many, this is a great option for rainy days or when things seem to be getting a little to “active” (i.e. kids tearing stuff up, fighting a little too much). Everything you need is in the box and you don’t have to have batteries to make it work.
Who knows, you may end up getting tricked into playing a few games too!
Mimtom Drawing Stencils for Kids
20 plastic stencils (10.3” x 7.3”), 15 ultra-bright colored pencils w/ paper tube case, a pencil sharpener, a mechanical pencil, and a sketchbook with 20 drawing sheets.
Encourage imagination and creativity and help your child improve their artistic abilities with the Mimtom Drawing Stencils. These stencils come in a variety of shapes, from letters to dinosaurs, and are easy to use. They are comfortable to hold and handle, and the shapes are easy to trade.
The letters, dinosaurs, animals, and more will all fit on standard paper with no trouble. The designs themselves are simple enough for any child to draw, but they still clearly depict what they should. Whether that is a brontosaurus or a horse, your child will know what they are drawing.
The plastic does not have any sharp edges (for safety purposes) and all the edges, including those for the stencils themselves, are safe to touch. You don’t have to worry about your child poking themselves with a sharp edge which could hurt them while trying to draw/follow the stencil(s).
Since they are plastic, they will last a long time. They are designed to last for hundreds of uses without failing, twisting, or breaking. Let your child explore their creativity and improve their drawing skills with this stencil kit.
Stomp Rocket Stunt Planes
The Stomp Rocket Stunt Planes offer excitement and curiosity in a small, but fun, package. Powered by nothing more than “kid energy”, these planes are designed the fly, do loops, perform tricks, and hit amazing heights. Using the stomp pad, which the child jumps on, propels the planes to heights unfathomable to kids. Each plane is designed to do something different once they are launched.
Again, no batteries or electricity are necessary – that’s a BIG plus!. Instead, the Stomp Rocket Stunt Planes work entirely off the air pushed out by the jump/stomp from your energetic boy(s). Once launched, they’ll glide, loop, or perform tricks until your children run out of energy (it’s possible).
These rockets are completely safe, made from materials that are easy to put together with no dangerous or high risk/hard pieces in the kit. Everything is soft and easy to use and propelled by air and kid power. Young kids can pull this out, set it up, and use it almost instantly. You might even find an adult trying to see how high they can send the rockets (maybe you?).

They have to find the right spot and place it where it belongs, creating a complete and accurate globe at the end. When completing the small puzzle, it becomes a workable and functioning globe that children can use.
Everything starts out simple – the globe is nothing but water. As your child begins to find the right spots for each continent, it grows into a full and realized world, with all of the continents in the appropriate spots. Each continent is brightly colored with images that match the location. Animals, architecture, and other notable pieces of culture, history, and geography from each area are visible on the continent pieces.
All the pieces are large and fit comfortably in your child’s hands while being easily attached to the globe/puzzle. When finished, your child will know more about the world around them and the continents themselves, all while having some fun.

Endless play for entire family. Easy to put together. Simply connect the balls with sticks and cover the structure with bedsheets to create places where imaginations flourish.
Building forts is a part of your childhood you’ll never forget. And now you get the chance to give your child a bigger, better fort without the same headaches you dealt with. While you had to use whatever was available, there is a better option.
The 69-piece kit from Crazy Forts is the perfect option for building insane forts that’ll make your old forts look like cardboard boxes and cheap sheets. The kit used connecting rods and specialized balls to create structures that are strong enough to survive your kids and that ultra-heavy quilt they decided to use to soundproof the fort.
All they have to do is connect the rods into the multi-point balls and create a fort for the ages. This will help them learn the basics of architecture and physics, while keeping your house free of cardboard boxes all over the living room floor. When they are finished, all they have to do is tear everything down and store it away. Plus, the kit comes with instructions to help them get started.

For a five-year-old boy, what else could you ask for?
Things You Should Consider When Buying Toys For Five-Year-Old Boys
Finding the right toys for a five-year-old boy is daunting. It’s been a LONG time since you were five and toys have changed a lot over the years. But, we’ve put together a guide that should help you “understand” the mind of a five-year-old boy and match the right toy to their likings and personality.
What Are They Interested In?
First off, you need to focus on what they already play with (and what they don’t play with). Some children really like video games where others prefer basketball and football. Don’t waste your money hoping that they’ll enjoy a basketball if they’ve never stepped foot outside. Instead, find the toys that they already gravitate to and you should have a winner on your hands. Don’t try to “force” them into liking something that they’ve shown no interest in.
What Is Their Learning Style?
Do they learn by reading an instruction manual or do they prefer to learn in a more “hands-on” style? If they toy you buy them requires a lot of reading (or has a lot of rules), you may find that your “hands-on” child will shun the gift/toy – that’s not what you want. Pay attention to their personality and learning style. Try not to buy a gift that forces them outside of their comfort zone. Right now, they are five – let them enjoy it without having to learn a lot of new things.
What Is Their Personality?
Is your child an inside child or an outside child? Do they like to play with other kids? Both of these are characteristics that determine who they are. If they are inside kids, a basketball goal is probably not the best gift for them. Instead, you might want to look at inside toys and games that they’ll be more comfortable with. Sure, you can try to incorporate toys that promote outside play, but you may find that your child will push it away.
That’s everything we have for five-year-old boys! There are plenty of options on this list to work with. Again, you need to pay attention to your child and use the buying guide to help you make the right decision when buying their gifts. If you use our list, and the included buyer’s guide, it’ll be hard to make a bad purchasing decision.
All of the options on our list are affordable and safe for five-year-old boys. All you have to do now is to press the “buy now” button and wait for delivery. It couldn’t be simpler! Hopefully, you found all the toys and gifts you needed for your five-year-old boy(s).
If you found everything you were looking for, that’s great! If not, we hope you have a better idea of what you needed to buy. If you think we missed something on our list, let us know and we’ll check it out. Who knows, your gift suggestion may end up on our list!
