    My son is totally uninterested in Legos. He loves trains & Hot Wheels & construction equipment. I can't say I'm sad about it because I've stepped on far too many Legos left lying around my mom's & sisters' places! That said, if I was getting a gift for a 5yo boy, I'd get him Legos! My mom used Legos in one of her college engineering classes!

    Thank you all!

    My DD isn't a big fan of Lego so I wasn't sure. Also, as the child isn't in a family home I wasn't sure if Lego was maybe too dangerous? My gosh, I'm probably over thinking it but I think I'll go with some Lefo and maybe some cars too

    Will this kid be moving around often? Maybe look for some sort of lego kit that comes with a carrying case, so he can keep it all together and it is easy to contain? Not sure exactly what the situation is.

    Depending on how much you want to spend something like a leap pad might be nice. They have gone down in price quite a bit and there are a couple places that are going to have them for sale Black Friday for around $40.

    Leappads require cartridges to play the various games & such. It only comes with three, at least it did when Tiven had one years ago. I don't see how a little boy in foster care or a group home or whatever would be able to buy more.

    And ITA with whomever said to get a set with a carrying case. And maybe get the Duplo blocks, they are made by Lego but are bigger, less choking hazard, easier to see so grownups don't step on them, maybe less likely to get lost since there aren't as many smaller pieces.

    Oh! And I just recently learned that that lego lost their patent a few years ago, so (at least around here) the higher end toy stores are getting in off brand lego, that works with lego brand lego. This is often cheaper, and you can get just pieces (doors, windows, wheels, or assorted but no set) for really good prices. Not sure if this would help the original poster, but for those of you whose kids love lego, might help with cost. For something so little those suckers are expensive!

    Dominos. They don't hurt when you step on them. They are also wonderful for math (add the two sides with the dots, etc) and kids love setting them up and knocking them down in cool designs.

    Along with a few toys, I'd buy him warm pajamas, socks, underwear.
