    Son turning 4 on the 14th... trying to thing of good ideas of things to get him. We had in mind a drum kit for him since he is really into music until we come to the conclusion we just don't have any room for a drum kit in our apartment... on to plan B.

    $100-$200 range, he loves all little boy stuff (cartoons, TMNT ect) and Im trying not to buy him anything to do with the Xbox/video games.

    We bought him a keyboard 2 years ago for Cmas but hes still too young to really understand a keyboard. Drums would've been perfect. Any ideas folks?

    Thanks.

    I would probably kill you if you were in a unit next to mine. Just letting you know. :)

    Well the idea was he could only play during daytime when our neighbors are gone. Everyone around me works day shift and I work overnight shift so we're home in the daytime.

    power wheels. i think 4 is the right age for that (maybe too old). $100-$200 seems right range. A nice Ford F-150 or a Harley. Could drive around apartment complex and what not. Not a video game and gets him outdoors. You would have to watch him though obviously.

    Buy him something that will positively stimulate his development. Puzzles, books, soccer ball, or football. No need to go all out. And if you live in an apartment, PLEASE do not get him an instrument. That is the bane of all apartment dwellers.

    Reviewing your posting history adoption would be the greatest gift that child could receive.

    the old casual dropping of a D&D in hangout routine, only to abandon that thread and start a thread needing clutchfans advice on how to be a good dad.
