At six years, your little boy already experiences birthday parties, play dates and school.  Although he is starting to be independent, he still needs his parents’ attention more than ever.   Parents should be aware of this and help their 6 year old boy to feel secure by giving him reassurance of understanding and love.  Independent self-care is already exhibited by the six year old but some may still require little guidance and help.    Although separation anxiety from his parents is still an issue for some, it would be less intense as he naturally build stronger bonds at school and become used to spending time away from home.  Predictable routines such as play dates with friends and after school activities are important for the six year old.  These regular activities provide security for him as he encounter changes in the future.  Toys can be helpful for him to build bonds with his friends and family during play dates and it would be appropriate to give him quality toys to help shape him up.  Check out our great finds below and see which one would be your top pick for toys for 6 year old boys.
