Ok some need to know:

he's 3 going on 16

but he doesnt play with three year old stuff... He doesnt play with toddler stuff, i guess you could say his big thing is cars and trucks. Matchbox mostly and he likes his Power wheels lightning mcqueen. he also has a nice RC car that he plays with as well . both are street use only type of things and he likes to hardcore offroad them with unfavorable results ... like the front bumper is missing off of his power wheels so yea :blink:

 

On to some ideas I was thinking of getting him something like this

 

Jeep Hurricane from power wheels ,  CONS size and storage space

Or this a Traaxis 1/18 Teton RC car , Ive heard these things are a blast to drive but I also hear alot of people say its a money pit

any other ideas or input ?

Thanks for the input mike , as far as the RC goes I don't have a clue what to get , I didnt see that one on my searches looking at it now , not sure on a budget yet but I guess anything that cost up to 400$ which is what the Jeep costs

my niece had a pink jeep when she was younger & drove it all over my parents property, I was surprised where it'd go

 

good luck in the search, just wait in a year or so he'll tell you what he wants

Speaking as the BIG kid I am, this is too easy!

 

FIRST get him a Power Wheels for sure !!! (also get yourself one and a mini quad) and make THIS!

(probably one of my all time favorite videos on youtube)

 

 

 

Another cheaper idea - search for "flip over rc car"  perfect for a 3yr old with novice hand eye coordination!  It flips and keeps going!

This one is a little more advanced than I was thinking, but you get the idea

Oh I'd wind up having to build 3 or 4 of those things to keep the peace. One or two definitely wouldn't cut it. That could get a little pricey.

My daughter is 3 as well and she is really into flashlights. Just a couple of more years and she can get into daddy's hobby "FIREARMS".

I had a Jurrasic Park Powerwheels jeep back in the early 90's. 

 

Coming from someone who's a kid at heart, GET THE JEEP lol

 

He'd probably go nuts over that and know how to go wheeling at age 3
