Planes, Trains, and Automobiles | Holiday Gift Guide
Lego City Fire Station. I hadn't even taken off my coat before he started chanting, "Come on Mom! Build the firetruck!" He had the enthusiasm of a kid on Christmas and persisted even after I suggested a puzzle instead. I had no choice but to oblige but as I scanned the manual looking for a starter piece, I was relieved to read that this Lego item is recommended for kids ages 6-12. As the holidays approach, I'm sure many of you are trying to figure out what to put on your gift lists. Since my little guy is super passionate about everything with wheels and engines, here are some vehicles we're circling for Black Friday sales:

2. NASCAR Race Car. The replica Goodyear tires aren't the only thing that make this Dale Earnhardt Jr. classic a collectible. It's casted from an official NASCAR die! $7.44
