Disc Golf Basket and Discs
My 7-year-old has come to love Disc Golf lately and loves to practice. My 5yo twins do too but focusing on the 7yr old here 🙂 It’s great to be able to practice at home before heading to the course. This set includes a portable disc golf target, three discs, and a handy carrying bag.

The Q-Bitz game is really cool, even I enjoy playing it. It does say ages 8+ but my 7yo does enjoy it. Honestly, it reminds me a bit of an IQ test I used to give back when I was a school psychologist. It’s a fun way to challenge visual dexterity and spatial reasoning. You don’t have to compete against each other if you don’t want, you can just make different designs from the cards.
GAME TO TRAIN THE BRAIN: The Q-bitz game is a great way to say goodbye to boredom and challenge your mind all at once. Practice your symmetry, visual dexterity, quick thinking, and competitive nature. Q-bitz stimulates the brain to use spatial reasoning and memory skill making it perfect for both the classroom and at home.
THREE WAYS TO PLAY: With Q-bitz, it's not the same game over and over again. You get 80 different puzzle cards that you can compete to complete in 3 different ways. That's over 200 different ways to play. Combine that with different friends and you have a new experience every time.
Remote Control Dump Truck
This remote control dump truck really works! My 7-year-old has brought it outside to help move the mulch that got washed out of the flower beds during a heavy rain and bring it back to the flower beds. He just loaded it up then dumped it where it was supposed to go. It was pretty cool and made cleaning up fun.
The dump truck has a rechargeable battery which is great to not have to run through so many batteries!!
Compared with the traditional yellow dump truck, we have upgraded the color, which is different from others, our black construction vehicle looks more cool and realistic.Used with remote control excavator toy, it is very suitable for indoor and outdoor play.
He continues to LOVE Legos so I thought I’d include some of his newer sets.
Lego Dots Message Board
The LEGO DOTS Message Board is really fun because they can customize it to say whatever they want, depending on the day! They could have it say hello with different color suns one day, flower with flowers made of dots another day and whatever else they think of!
This is one of the few Lego sets my son may actually edit from time to time. lol

The included curved 2x2 elements help kids make different font sizes to say whatever they want
LEGO Ice Cream Truck
I’m truly impressed by this set, which is a lot to say for a 37 year old. Lol It didn’t take that long for him to put together and it has a working sliding window like a real food truck and a door that opens. It’s really cool.
Colorful Ice-Cream Van - Features a vibrant ice-cream van toy truck with amusing stickers, removable driver's cabin roof, and wide-opening side doors for imaginative play.
