Having four boys means a lot of toy shopping for me this time of year. I really try not to go crazy, they already have so many toys, but the holidays always get the best of me. You can't have a Christmas without toys, right? Well, I suppose you could, but where is the fun in that? As you consider what toys to add to your shopping list this holiday season, here are a few for boys that I have gotten and think are real winners.
My boys absolutely loved the Cars 2 movie when they saw it in theaters this summer. And they have been asking me when the movie will be out to watch at home. This cool car is the perfect gift for your little Cars 2 fan. Secret agent Finn McMissle comes fully loaded with top secret spy weapons, firing missiles, sound effects and thrilling transformations. Any child will have a blast going on secret missions with this super cool car. Ages 4+. $32.99 at Target.
Playskool Transformers Rescue Bots
Who doesn't love a robot that can transform into a truck? Unlike the Transformers toys made for older kids that can be difficult to convert, the Transformers Rescue Bots are specifically designed for preschoolers and easily transform from robot to a truck in just one step. No more asking mom and dad to help with it over and over again. (Yes, I've been there). Now even preschoolers can have awesome adventures with Optimus Prime and Bumblebee while saving the world from the evil Decepticons! Ages 3+. $11.99 at Target.
The Trash Pack Figures & Garbage Truck
The Trash Pack are one of the new hot collectibles this season. There are over 100 "Trashies" characters, named after items found in your garbage, for kids to collect and trade.

The Trash Pack Garbage Truck lets kids store, dump and display their favorite "Trashies" and comes with two exclusive figures. $15.99 Ages 5-7. All Trash Pack items are sold exclusively at Toys R Us.
