Electronic Toys for 3 Year Old Boys
Three year old boys love electronics and gadgets! I decided to feature them right at the top because they are on the most wanted list of cool toys for 3 year old boys.
Every three year old must own a Vtech Write Learn Creative Center! I know some people buy this for younger kids but I feel three is the perfect age to start using this!
VTech Write and Learn Creative Center
Magnetic drawing board that teaches kids to write both lower and uppercase letters.
Help your 3 year old write their name as they follow the guide on the center.
Teaches kids up to draw – starts simple with lines before moving onto 26 different shapes
Amelia loves her magna doodle so I cannot wait until she is a little older to treat her to one of these.
The handle means she can carry it around with her. I can see her using it during long car journeys or while we are waiting for dinner at our favorite restaurant.
I have found some more cool toys for 3 year old boys who love electronics! I particularly love the electronic map of the USA!
Design and Drill Toys Are Awesome Fun and Great for STEM Too
I have only just heard about design and drill toys and I just had to feature them in my list of cool toys for 3 year old boys (by the way 4, 5 and 6 year old boys will love these too). These are awesome value for money and will make great Christmas and Birthday gifts! You could even take them on car journeys or flight travel! Hands up who wants to keep their little men busy and stimulated at the same time, ME for sure!
Educational Insights Design & Drill Take-Along Toolkit
Boys (and girls) will love using the drill to put bolts into the board!
Comes with a 10 pattern guide or kids can go solo and do their own thing (definitely what my 3 year old would do)- enhancing their creativity and fine motor skills at the same time
Comes with 60 bolts (but you can buy extra should you lose any or want more), board and electronic screwdriver drill.
Compact carrying case which my toddler will love to carry around and doubles up as storage.
There are several different sets I would recommend and you can see these below.
Ride Toys for 3 Year Old Boys
Ride toys for 3 year old boys make fabulous Birthday and Christmas gifts for three year olds! Now that their gross motor skills are well developed kids like bikes as well as quads and other fun ride toys! I have included some suitable highly rated cool toys for 3 year old boys who want a new ride on toy!
Outdoor Toys for Little Boys
Little boys love active play and now they can with these cool toys for 3 year old boys! My absolute favorite has to be a rollercoaster! It is definitely amongst the best toys for 3 year olds!
Step 2 Up & Down Roller Coaster
Hands up who wants to have a roller coaster in their back garden?! Yep every 3 year old boy that’s who!
This is such a fun toy which is suitable for toddlers up until they are 6 or so, basically until they want something more exciting!!
Can be assembled without any tools (slide in 3 pieces as well as clip on side steps)
Comes with car which has handrail to hold up and high back for back support and safety
VERY IMPORTANT – this requires lots of space in your back garden or indoors! It is 10 feet long and kids can also glide another 10 feet at the end, which is why I recommend this as an outside toy as opposed to indoors.
Wooden Train Sets for Kids
All little boys love wooden train sets for kids whether they feature firm favorite Thomas the Tank Engine or not. Jamie has an awesome wooden train set that sits on a large table in his bedroom. These provide endless hours of fun for boys and girls alike, as well as Dad! There are so many of these about with huge variations in price so I was extremely picky and selected the ones I felt were the best value for money including the Melissa Doug wooden train set.
Melissa & Doug Classic Wooden Figure Eight Train Set (22 pcs)
An excellent starter train set is this one by Melissa Doug suitable for boys aged 3 and upwards.
It is a small set with 20 pieces of railway track including a bridge. There is a train with an attached coal car.
This also works with other Melissa Doug train sets.
While this is an excellent set I feel buying the 8 train set would add to the fun and excitement and mean two little boys or girls could play at the same time!
As well as being one of the cool toys for 3 year old boys these tend to be played with over and over again until boys hit their tween and teen years. I know of some grown men who still have their wooden train sets on the go in their attics
Building Toys for 3 Year Old Boys
Preschoolers love connecting things so building toys for 3 year old boys are way up there in the cool toys list!

I just have to try a few more out before doing this.
