DS's 5th birthday party was over the weekend so I can tell you what he received.
lego city stuff, imaginext batmobile and batcopter, board games (monopoly jr. spot it, joker/batman game), a globe, pirate ship, hockey net and sticks, lego watch, dry erase markers and a wipe off lined "paper" pad.
we got him a lego city coast guard boat from us. he also happened to receive a hand me down razor scooter to replace his mini kick.
I actually took him to toys r us to look around (i had a gift to buy) and that gave me a bunch of ideas and it was fun!
