We bought the Air Patroller this year for Tyler and he absolutely loves it! The Air Patroller includes Robo Dog and has a seat for him and Ryder in the cockpit of the plane.
There’s room in the cargo area for all the air pups to fit for their rescue.
The Air Patroller will hold all the small pup figures and makes real engine noises when you press the button or move the engines on the wings.

Really Cool Drawing Tablet for a 3 Yr Old
This Doodle Pro is the best drawing toy for my 3 year old boy, he’s always making something with it. I like that we can take it with us in the car or places we have to wait around and it keeps him entertained. It’s the original tablet for 3 year old boys. ha!
The big screen gives him a lot of space to draw and write his letters and numbers. His favorite part is erasing what he just drew with the big slider at the bottom of the toy. There are four shape stampers, they’re great for stamping shapes and shading in larger spaces on the board. For the price, this makes a great, lightweight travel toy that you’re three year old will love.
Motorized Thomas the Train Tracks for Boys Age 3
We currently have two of these Thomas Trackmaster Sets for our 3 year old and he loves them! There’s nothing like electric trains to light up a little boy. The track is so easy to put together and he can watch Thomas go round and round all by himself. This is like a real electric train track designed just for their age. All the sets connect together if you buy more than one like we did.
An Electric Scooter for 3 Year Old Boys
This Paw Patrol electric scooter is a great gift for a 3 or 4 year old boy because it’s made just for their age. This electric scooter features their favorite Paw Patrol characters, Chase, Rubble and Marshall.
The Paw Patrol electric scooter is easy to operate, just push start and it gently begins to accelerate. Don’t forget to buy a helmet, you definitely want a Paw Patrol helmet to go with this sweet ride.
The scooter goes up to 2 miles per hour and will go about 5 miles on one full charge. It takes about 8 hours to fully charge this electric scooter, it will ride up to about 40 minutes on a single charge.
This is a Cool Toy for 3 Year Old Boys
This Phonics Bus with magnetic letters is one of our favorite kitchen toys. I say kitchen toys because it’s on the ridge and it keeps Tyler busy while I’m doing some cleaning or cooking. When he puts the letters into the fitted slot on the Fridge Phonics bus it sings the name of the letter and gives the phonetic sound.
Educational toys like this are entertaining and keep him busy in the kitchen. My older son likes trying to use the letters to spell funny things out on the fridge – bonus! The bus has a very strong magnet so it stays on the fridge and doesn’t fall off easily.

Mega Blocks makes some really awesome building sets for three year old boys. The First Builders Airport is a set with lots of imagination and building activities involved.

My 3 year old son loves Blaze, so this Mega Blocks Blaze building set is also a favorite of his, he loves to send him blazing down the ramp through the finish line!
My 3 Yr Old Loves the Lion Guard on Disney Jr.
My three year old loves to watch the Lion Guard on Disney Jr. This is one of his favorite playsets, it comes with two figures and you can get the other characters too. He really hasn’t stopped playing with it since we bought it, it’s one of his favorite shows on TV.
There’s a lot of little details built into this playset that my son loves, the tree elevator and waterfall are his favorite. There is a lot of thought that went into the activities this toy has, it’s really cool if you have all the figures because they fit inside the play set.

Really Cool Building Toys for 3 Year Old Boys
This numeric train from Duplo is a lot of fun and easy to put together for a three year old. What’s cool about this colorful train is that it introduces children to numbers in a way that is fun and even exciting.
This Lego Duplo set is one of many of the preschooler size sets. It comes with the dog and the little man who can be your train conductor. The train is really colorful and it drives across the floor like a real train does. My little guy loves trains… you can’t go wrong buying a 3-yr-old a train.
We have this playset and the My First House Duplo set and Tyler loves them.

Best Basketball Hoop for 3 Year Old Boys
This little boys basketball hoop is one of my three-year-old sons favorite outdoor toys. I like that it’s adjustable so it will grow with him. It has 5 different size settings for beginners to pro-kindergartners 😉 This is one of the best selling basketball hoops for boys age three because of the size, adjustable height and skill level. It was very easy to put together, took us a whole 5 minutes.
Playing basketball is one of his favorite things to do in the backyard, the little soft ball is the perfect size for his hands. The ball is soft, which is nice because no one gets hurt playing with it. We also use this basketball hoop next to our pool we weighted down the bottom so it would stay upright. There’s a little hole that opens up so you can weight it down and make it more sturdy, especially if you have a “dunker” like I do.
Pretend Kitchens are a HUGE Hit with 3 Year Olds
Three year old’s love playing with pretend food and kitchen playsets. My 3 year old boy absolutely loves to play in his kitchen and serve up food like in a restaurant. Pretend food is a huge hit with this age and even older kids love to play. I would have to say honestly that the kitchen is the most played with toy in our house when kids come over.
This Little BBQ is a Lot of Fun for a 3 Yr Old!
This little kids bbq is a lot of fun and the perfect size for your three year old boy. My son has a great time playing with it, we keep it next to the pretend kitchen. Sometimes we take it outside when daddy is using the real bbq and Tyler pretends to serve us up food. He has his own spatula and tongs to turn his burgers like daddy does. The little bbq food that comes with it is your classic grilling foods, a hamburger and a hot dog. Don’t forget the ketchup!
What’s cool about this Little Tikes bbq is that it has burners on one side and a sink on the other. Underneath is storage for all your fake food. Three year old kids absolutely love fake food and pretend toys like this bbq.
Such a COOL TOY for a 3 Year Old Boy!
This truck will be the pride and joy of your 3 year old boy because he will be free to roam. There’s nothing like buying your kids a Cozy Coupe, they are built to last and run on kid-power. Way better than Power Wheels vehicles because you can just take off, no battery to charge or anything. It’s lightweight, easy to steer and my 3 yr old loves being in control with his feet.
This truck has a door that opens up on the drivers side making it easy to enter. There is lots of storage in the back behind the seat so you can tote along toys and sippy cups. The little gas cap on the side is great for imaginary fill-ups and the off-road style tires are a unique touch.
Cozy Coupe Makes the Ultimate Ride Toys for 3 Yr Old Boys
These are all kid-powered, so you don’t have to think about charging up batteries. The gas pump just makes it even more exciting because Cozy Coupe cars have the gas cap that pops open. Every kid has imagined at some point they were filling up the coupe through this little removable gas cap, so the pump is just too too cool.
Mr. Rays Catching Game is a Lot of Fun!
This Finding Dory Sting Ray net set is a cool toy for the bath or the swimming pool. My son absolutely loves catching the school of fish in the sting ray net over and over again.
Mr. Ray is the net and there are 5 little fish that you can catch; the fish characters are Dory, Nemo, Pearl, Sheldon and Kathy from Finding Dory.
Some of the characters will sink and some will float which makes for a fun game because you have to grab some quicker than others.
Really COOL Bath Toys for 3 Year Old Boys
My 3 year old son loves to spend time in the bath with his bath toys. We have done a lot of reviews on this blog just about his bath toys, mostly bath squirters that look like his favorite characters from his favorite shows like Blaze, Paw Patrol and Sesame Street.
