3. Nerf Super Soaker Freezefire Blaster


Nerf Super Soaker Freezefire Blaster

Nerf Super Soaker Freezefire Blaster enters in next on the list.

My first thought about this blaster was, “Why is it called ‘Freezefire?” – I quickly discovered the reason.

This water blaster has the ability to hold ice along with the water – and yep when the “enemy” gets the receiving end of the blast you will likely be hearing a number of “Aaaaaaaaaah!”s. :)

A great toy for summer outdoor play – ummm – just stay outside ok kids?

4. Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears!


Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears!

Probably my personal favorite of the bunch this year – Learning Resources Gears! Gears! Gears! is also a wonderful toy for boys at or around 5 years of age.

I first spotted this toy about a year and a half ago – and fell in love with it.

It has the perfect mix of color, creativity, imagination and motion.

Kids can hands-on discover the mechanics of gears and how they can create machines that move things along – nothing like getting kids to do things to help them learn – and it’s waaaaay fun!

5. LEGO Bricks & More Creative Bucket (10662)


LEGO Bricks & More 10662 Creative Bucket

Another toy for 5 year old boys that is practically a “staple” in any household – LEGO Bricks & More Creative Bucket.

For the “younger LEGO generation,” here is a perfect set for those kiddos at or around 5 years of age.

Kids have a choice with this set – they can play with it “open ended” to utilize their own imagination or follow the guides to build some pretty fun stuff – like buildings, animals and vehicles.

A great set for this age group.

6. Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Leader Class Optimus Prime


Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Leader Class Optimus Prime Figure

Next on the list of the best toys this year for boys 5 years of age is also one for the Transformers fans among us – Age of Extinction Generations Leader Class Optimus Prime.

In this new movie, Optimus Prime presents himself in a bit of a different light – willing to bend some rules, he holds his stand on defending earth and all its inhabitants from the evil forces from other parts of the universe.

Here, the noble Optimus is in his form from the movie – he transforms from robot mode to semi-truck, his weapon of choice being the Sword of Judgement, also wielding the Vector Shield.

7. Disney Planes Fire & Rescue Dusty with Pontoons Die-cast Plane


Disney Planes: Fire & Rescue Dusty with Pontoons Die-cast Vehicle

And – a nifty addition to the list of the best 5 year old boys’ toys for 2014 – Disney Planes Fire & Rescue Dusty with Pontoons Die-cast Plane.

I was curious to see which die-cast vehicles would present themselves on the toy shelf this year from the new Disney Movie “Planes Fire & Rescue,” and this one appears to be the most popular and not a disappointment.

Dusty is the much-loved hero from the first “Planes” movie, here fully revealing his bravery by joining forces with the firefighters to preserve life.

And – he sports some pontoons so he can take off and land on water safely :)

8. Nerf Lazer Tag Phoenix LTX Tagger (2-Pack)


Nerf Lazer Tag Phoenix LTX Tagger 2-Pack

Next up – Nerf Lazer Tag Phoenix LTX Tagger (for 2 players).

NERF blasters – probably a toy that will never go away due to the fact that they beg to be picked up and put into action – creating fun (and harmless) “wars” between opponenents.

Here is a set that has everything needed for a 2-player battle along with some fairly high tech features that make laser tag even more fun.

9. Stomp Rocket Jr. Glow Kit


Stomp Rocket Jr. Glow Kit

At #9 among the top 10 toys for 5 year old boys 2014 – Stomp Rocket Jr. Glow Kit.

Every time I see or think about the Stomp Rocket, my first thought to convey to parents is this: buy it. It’s thrilling, fun and there is lots and lots of action and exercise involved.

“Plant” the rocket, stomp as hard as you can on the launching pad and watch the darned thing blast into the air – high into the air. Kids (adults too) can start a competition to see how high theirs go.

I love this toy.

It is a multi-function easel, coming with everything needed for kiddos to be as creative and artistic as they like in a number of different ways.
