Paw Patrol My Size Lookout Tower
Kids will love the interactive lights and sounds and rotating periscope on this Paw Patrol Lookout Tower. At over two and a half feet tall, there’s plenty of room for them to act out their favorite scenes from the show with their friends.

Imaginext DC Super Friends Batbot Xtreme
Imaginext appeals to boys and girls secret desire to be a superhero, so they make some of the best toys for preschool boys. Their Batbot Xtreme toy is supersized (over two feet tall) and complete with projectile launchers and voice changer.
What’s not to love about wings that pop out and fists that really punch? AND inside, Batman can take a secret elevator up to his crib and exchange witty one-liners with Alfred.
If you buy this toy for a 3 or 4-year-old boy, don’t be surprised if the oldest boy in the house takes it over. Yeah, I’m talking about dad.
Here’s two more Imaginext toys your preschooler might like. The Justice League Mobile Command Center on the left is super popular. And the Transforming Batcave (even the name is cool!) is a huge seller with great reviews!
Etch A Sketch Freestyle Toy
The classic preschool toy for boys and girls gets a modern twist with the Etch A Sketch Freestyle. The knobs are stampers so kids can add cool shapes and designs to their creations. And, it’s in color!
There’s also an app kids can use with this toy for more modern features. This isn’t the same Etch A Sketch we played with in grade school!
Here’s a couple more toys for preschool boys to get their creative juices flowing. The AquaDoodle mat on the right is a great travel toy for preschoolers!
Hape Wooden Kid’s Easel
I love multi-functional toys! The Hape Wooden All-in-One Easel is not only a great toy for preschoolers, but it’s the perfect gift for families with multiple kids.
One side of the easel is a chalkboard and the other side is a magnetic whiteboard. PLUS, it has a roll of paper that can be pulled down and fastened for kids to draw or paint on. There’s also a tray to hold paint and other supplies for the little Picasso.
And the best part? It’s one of the few easels that has an adjustable height feature! This sturdy toy will last through multiple kids, even beyond the preschool years.
DC Super Friends Batman Lights & Sounds Trike
The Super Friends Batman Trike has a control panel that Alfred would be proud of. Preschoolers can use the lights and sounds for fun effects as they race down the sidewalk in search of villians.
A really nice feature of this toy is that the seat is adjustable, so he won’t outgrow this trike too quickly. It’s getting great reviews from parents too!
Guardians of the Galaxy Music Mix Star-Lord
And you can’t get much cooler than Guardians of the Galaxy Star-Lord and his comedic sayings and awesome 70’s music. Self-deprecating humor is in, man!
Below are two other very popular Guardians of the Galaxy toys for preschool boys. Dancing Baby Groot moves to the groove while the raccoon with an attitude blasts away at galactic enemies!
The Pixlplay turns an Apple or Android phone into a camera that integrates with an app and offers budding photographers all sorts of fun features.
Below are a couple other cameras rated for preschoolers that are getting good reviews. The Action Cam on the right is like a Go Pro for kids. Imagine all the shenanigans that can be captured on film!
Play-Doh Noodle Makin Mania Set
Play-Doh sets are consistently among the best toys for preschoolers. Their brand new noodle making set lets your young Emeril make all sorts of Italian concoctions, like lasagna and bow-tie pasta. A little of this, a little of that and BABAM!
If pastries are more to your preschooler’s taste, this cookie making Play-Doh set is a top seller.

Paw Patrol Paw Terrain Vehicle
Another new Paw Patrol toy that’s on the list of the best toys for preschoolers this year is the Rescue Terrain Vehicle. When a pup is in danger, it’s Paw Patrol to the rescue, complete with lights, sounds and animal carrier.
But land rescues aren’t their only specialty – the Paw Patrol Sea Patroller is on our list of best toys for preschool boys too.

Hang on to your potatoes because your little spud will race like lightning (well, like 3.5 mph anyway) in his Power Wheels Lightning McQueen car!
The cool graphics and sounds will delight Disney Cars fans as they putt putt over sidewalks and grass. They’ll be the envy of the neighborhood in this thing!
Wonder Crew Superhero Buddy
The best toys for preschool boys don’t usually include dolls and we love that a mom designed these Superhero Buddy dolls to fill that void.
Sometimes boys need a toy for comfort and support too, and these caped hero dolls are perfect for that.
Here’s a couple more dolls designed for preschool boys, to help further their nurturing side.
Hasbro Toilet Trouble Game
Forget about gathering ’round the fire, cause we’re gathering ’round the toilet bowl instead (pretend one, anyway). No, it’s not the morning after a frat party, it’s just the Toilet Trouble game.
Preschool boys will love the suspense of waiting to see if they get sprayed in the face (kind of like how mom or dad felt when they changed his diapers). 😀
Games are a great way for preschool boys to practice their thinking and social skills. Here’s two more hot selling games that preschoolers are loving!
Thomas & Friends Super Station Playset
This brand new supersize Super Station playset features several of their favorite character cars and multiple configuration options to fit in a variety of spaces.
There’s lots of room to add additional tracks and cars too, so you’re all set for future gift ideas as well!
If the preschool boy on your list likes Thomas & friends, he’ll enjoy the Mini Thomas & Friends sets. These are about the size of Matchbox cars and don’t need tracks to play on. The Twist and Turn playset on the left is designed for minis and the 20 car set on the right is a really great deal on the minis!
Think & Learn Teach ‘n Tag Movi
There are all sorts of ways preschool boys and girls can play and learn with the Teach’n Tag Movi. And his little facial expressions are too cute!
Here’s two more learning toys for preschoolers from Fisher-Price that have good reviews. The Code-a-Pillar was rated one of the best toys for preschool boys (and girls!) last year and is still very popular.
Disney Pixar Cars 3 Tech Touch Lightning McQueen
Since the movie came out in June, there are lots of Cars 3 themed toys for preschool boys this year and the Tech Touch Lightning McQueen car is the latest and greatest of them.
Kids can program their car to race around in specific configurations, or just let ‘ole Lightning make his own way around the room. There is also a story mode, plus sound effects for another dimension of fun.
Here’s a couple more fun Cars 3 toys for preschool boys. The Travel Time Mack truck pictured below is a big hit and the collection of all the Cars 3 characters on the right would be an awesome gift for a Cars 3 fan!
VTech Drill and Learn Toolbox
The VTech Drill and Learn Toolbox gives preschool boys their very own tool set so they can copy mom or dad.
Preschool boys can learn all about tools and really drill and pound the screws and nails.
While they’re learning repair basics, they also learn their colors and numbers and improve motor skills.
Now, if only there was a tool set for grown men that makes them actually want to repair stuff. 🙄
For the serious preschool DIYer, check out the Deluxe Workshop below! This thing is getting great reviews! Another neat tool toy for preschoolers is the Take-A-Part vehicle and tools set, pictured on the right. Kids can practice taking the truck and motorcycle apart and putting them back together.
Magformers Set (62 pcs)
Magformers are magnetic shapes that connect together in all kinds of configurations for unique 3D creations.
The 62 Piece Standard Magformers Set has plenty of pieces for kids to play with, but if that’s a bit overwhelming, there is a less expensive 30 piece Magformers set that is a good starter set for preschoolers.
There are all kinds of themed Magformers sets, like the vehicle one below on the left, or the construction one on the right. Kids really do love these things!
Fisher-Price Little People Wheelies Rampway Playset
One of their very popular sets is the Little People Wheelies Rampway Playset. It’s over 2 feet tall, so kids can watch the little wheelies spiral all the way down the ramp to the bottom.
And of course, there are lots of lights and sounds the whole way for entertainment! It’s also nice that there’s a carry handle on it, so it’s easy to slide this toy in a nook somewhere when the kids aren’t playing with it.
Ages 18 months – 6 years
Here are two new Little People sets. An animal rescue playset on the left, and a super-swooping amusement park set on the right. Both are getting great reviews and the amusement park set is a hot seller right now!
