Forget about him. What are you getting me?

OK, see if he is into "Yu Gi Oh" (I think that is how it is spelled.). It is a Japanese card based D&D game and cartoon. I've got a 9 and 12 year old that carry decks of these cards with them at all time. They collect trade and play pretty much non-stop. BTW, they are inexpensive too. Lot's of bang for the buck.

Good luck

Just go in the toy isle. In the Hotwheels/Matchbox area, there are soem cool stuff. A kid that doesn;t like die dast toy car and ... hehe... motorcycles ... Is just messed up.

Most toys have a age rating. for a 7 year old, you can go for you that say "7+ 8+ or 9+. The ratings are conservative and mostly made by lawyers, unless the kid has below average intellegence you can probably go up 2 years and be okay.

Those micro RC cars are big. Even us older kids are buying them. My buddies and I hold races in the tire factory every night. For less than $10 each, you can get a whole racing team outfitted. Gotta have smooth surfaces though. Carpet don't get it.
