A unicycle. Not too expensive, takes a while to master but pretty cool when he or she does!

Zombie killing hoodie or t-shirt like this one www.balconyshirts.co.uk/this-is-my-zombie-killing-shirt.html usually go down well. Silly puzzle type things, remote control car or helicoptor, a cool duvet set.

thanks again - I have already ordered some of your suggestions thanks

A beaney (sp?) hat. All DD1 male friends seem to have them glued to their heads even indoors.

I second Lynx, they all smell of it.

To follow on from the above post, I'd suggest farm/machinery models from a company called Universal Hobbies, bit more on the expensive side, but worth it for the detail.

You can get great collectors quality, model farm machinery, authentic detail and built to scale.

Try a company called Britains.

munchkin is great, if he will play games. Really quite funny and good fun.

ds got this last year - although I have to say that while he enjoyed building it, he has not played with it much since

Does anyone have any ideas what to get a 14 year old boy other than computer games and gadgets? (I bought those already) I also already got him some books.

His interest is engineering but only big things (he does not work with a great physics box I got him some time ago)

He dreams of having heavy farm machinery, power tools and building boats and rockets. smile We have a lot of space here but no money or inclination to buy these things.

What am I to do???
