At this age, boys are starting explore their own independence and friendships become more important so toys which emphasize this growth stage are more important than ever.

What's the average height for a 6 year old boy?

The average height for a six year old boy is around 3ft 9.5 inches. It's important to bare in mind that children's heights can vary a lot plus they go through stages of growth spurts. 

Looking for inspiration for birthday gifts for a 6 year old boy?

It's important to think about where the boy you are gifting has gotten to in their stage of development. Boys at this age are tying their own shoes, gaining coordination and getting dressed themselves. We have specifically chosen only those gifts which work best for boys this age so you can be reassured they are perfect.

What is a typical 6 year old boy like?

Six is the age when most boys start 'big kid' school. Goodbye to kindergarten, nap time, and make-believe; hello to first grade and reading, writing, and arithmetic. This transition can be scary. Six year olds crave affection and praise from parents and teachers, so be sure they feel secure at this milestone age. If kids feel supported, they'll thrive in the exciting new world of first grade. 

Six is the right age to start engaging with more sophisticated toys and games that are both fun and educational. You can't go wrong with silly science experiments, exciting engineering sets, and super cool robots! This is also the age when kids start to love rules and rituals. (Or at least just the ones they make up!) A sense of order helps soothe their anxieties and makes them feel secure in what would otherwise be a scary world. So don't be surprised if you sit down to play with him and he begins by listing everything you can and can't do!

At six, kids also start to feel a sense of 'responsibility' around the home. If a six year old has a younger sibling, he'll want to be the 'big kid' and take care of them. He may also want to help with meal preparation. If you don't want to take chances with his culinary skills (hint: he'll put ketchup on EVERYTHING), why not try cooking together? Cookbooks with kid-friendly recipes are a fun and delicious way to reinforce math and science skills. Food for thought!

Responsive Service

I have bought from Wicked Uncle on numerous occasions and have been well satisfied by the service and the purchases. This time I ordered several items and theywere speedily despatched. I checked them over before gifting them and found that the Traitors game had no English instructions. I contacted Wicked Uncle and received a swift and polite response. The correct instructions were received by return of post. A quality control issue?
