I love orders like this... icon_confused.gif The customer said, "Just whatever little boys like." Ummmm yea. He wasn't sure how old the little boy is going to be, either 7 or 8. I am thinking hot wheels or transformers....safe bet right? What do y'all think?

Thanks in advance!

My nephew turned 8 and he still likes SpongeBob, but there's also SpiderMan. icon_smile.gif

Lego, Pokemon, Bakugan, video games, dogs, dinosaurs, insects, candy, Chaotic cards, Iron Man, chess, poker, Wii.....

These are all things that my little boys (8 & 11) like. I would ask to speak to someone who might actually KNOW what this little boy would like, otherwise you'll be floundering!!

Good luck!

indiana jones, star wars, batman superman spiderman are all safe bets. race cars (speed racer just came out on video so that is popular right now) and sports are ok too but If I had to pick one superheros are ALWAYS safe with little boys
I particularly dont like spongebob for my kids, so I dont know... icon_biggrin.gif

Umm, a big pile of dirt and rocks?? That's what my little boy seems to like more than anything.

Race cars, construction, firetrucks, sports, probably any superhero. Spiderman, Hulk, and Batman are on all the boys clothes this season. SpongeBob is a fav among kids, but not all parents. I'd present the customer with three suggestions and make them choose so THEY are ultimately responsible.

I saw him this evening at the college. I made him choose between Hot Wheels, Transformers, and Spngebob. He chose Hot Wheels! YAY! Thank you everyone for your responses!

Glad you came to a decision! I'm kinda surprised there wasn't already a theme of some sort picked out.

I agree MacsMom. I believe he said it was "for the little boy my mom watches." I am guessing that she babysits? I dunno. It's prolly a just because I care and it's your birthday kind of cake.
