Best Christmas Gifts For 3-5 Year Old Boys 2018
On this page we’ll look at the Best Christmas Gifts for 3-5 year old boys in 2018.
When it comes to toys, one can never be too young. Children can start having fun with toys as soon as they are brought into this world, as they grow older, the fun just goes on and on.
Thinking about what gifts to buy for little boys shouldn’t be too difficult, because there are so many toys you can get. But of course if you are looking for the hottest toys for Christmas 2018 then you’ve come to the right place.
There are so many toys available in the market today, from stuffed animals and action figures to toy cars and learning caterpillars. We help you pull out what’s in demand for 3 year old boys this year.
If you’re looking for something for toddlers aged 3 to 5, this is perhaps the age group with some of the cutest toys available. They’re young enough to appreciate all the fun toys, but also old enough to use their imaginations and not to choke on small pieces. However, it’s still important to go for the toys that are non-toxic and safe for the kids to use.
Below are some of the best toys in 2018 that you can get for little boys who are 3-5 years old:
Funko POP Marvel: Captain America Sepia Tone Action Figure
Captain America is extremely popular among kids of all ages, and little boys grow up wanting to be their favorite superhero. The superhero’s popularity soared even more with all the blockbuster movies that he has been featured on. From the self-starring Captain America movies to The Avengers.
Marvel has done well in reviving Captain America for a new generation of boys who want to grow up saving the world and being a hero.
In celebration of Captain America’s 75th anniversary, Funko has come up with a Pop! Vinyl version of this famous superhero, and it’s the perfect gift to give little boys. This action figure wears the iconic Captain America costume, complete with the red boots and the circular shield. This version is extra special because even if the signature red and blue is still there, it’s muted and comes in a sepia tone.
As with most Pop! Vinyl figurines, this measures 2.5 x 2.5 x 3.8 inches and weights only 8 ounces, so it’s the perfect little toy for every Captain American fan. Of course you can still get the classic Captain America Pop! Vinyl from Funko, but this one’s the 75th anniversary version and is an Amazon Exclusive. You can also include other Funko Pop! Vinyl figures like Ant-Man, Spiderman, and Iron Man.

Finding Dory 10″ Hank Plush
Stuffed animals with their soft plush material are always a hit with kids that are aged 3-5. Not only are they soft enough and safe enough to use, but they really do tend to be cute.
The new plush toys made from Finding Dory characters are perfect because the movie has just come out.

Twozies Season 1 Friends Pack
Another great toy brand you can look into for gifts is Twozies by Moose Toys. This is basically a set of mini figurines, and each Twozies pair is composed of a baby and a pet friend.
The baby matches the pet through the headpiece and nappies. The Twozies are named based on their characteristics, and they also come in matching color combinations.
The Twozies Season 1 Friends Pack comes with 3 babies and 3 pet friends, but one of the babies are ‘hidden’ and so are all the pets. When you open the package, the idea is to help the babies find their lost pet friends. While you have potentially 140 Twozies to match to one another and play with, you should also keep your eyes open for Limited Edition “Two Precious” metallic Twozies.
Each baby gets a unique pet. For instance, there’s Woolbur and Woolsin, and because the pet is a lamb, they’re described as “warm hearted friends who love to keep out the cold with cuddles.
Wonda and Woofles is a doggy duo, while Wobbles and Bobbles is a baby-and-penguin pair. Tracka’s pet is Treaty the cat, Tosca’s pet is Twitchy the rabbit, Rupert’s pet is Keppa the baby elephant, and Kenny’s pet is Crumbles the Koala.

Angry Birds the Movie Super Grow Eggs – Hatch and Grow 3 Different Characters – (Series 1)
With all their gadgets in place, Angry Birds is definitely something that kids are already familiar with. The recent release of the Angry Birds movie has also made it even more popular, even if the child doesn’t play the Angry Birds game.
This toy is another great option for toddlers, whether or not they’ve played the game or seen the movie.
This is because the ‘Super Grow Eggs’ actually feature 3 eggs that ‘hatch’, revealing 3 different characters from Angry Birds.
Series 1 includes Red, Leonard, and Bomb, 3 famous characters from Angry Birds. What’s even crazier about this toy is that the characters actually ‘grow’ right out of their shells. So kids will have the chance to see the birds grow up to 10x their original size, like a real pet would.
What needs to be done is for the eggs to be placed in water, and within 24 hours, you will actually see them crack. Within 36-48 hours, the animals will hatch, and then it will just continue to grow daily until it reaches its full size. This is something that a lot of kids will have fun watching, and could also be a great learning experience.
