The Best Toys for Dads (That Kids Can Play With Too)

You'll be reluctant to share these with the kids.

Originally Published: 

Buying gifts for dad is hard. But sometimes the best dad gift is the one he gets to share or the one he never would have thought to buy himself — or, ideally, both. Dad can’t share whiskey and high-end watches, but he can share a great toy. And, yes, grown-ass men like toys too. And, luckily, there are some really great, fun gifts for dads that won’t be dismissed out of hand for being childish because they are too much fun to ignore. The key to finding the best toys for dads? Considering the context in which the toys might be used. Would he want to share it with a kid and show it to a buddy? That’s a bingo, like the great options on this list.
