Assume for a moment that you're a five year old boy. What kind of tourist tchotchke from New York City would you want?

Background: I am going to visit an old high school friend and her family in Houston next month. She has two boys, a four year old and a five year old. I live in New York City, and have no kids.
What kind of present/toy/whatever would a four and five year old want that is emblematic of NYC? And, more importantly to this native New Yorker, where do tourists in Manhattan go to buy this kind of stuff?
Bonus question: I assume that I should mention to the parents that I brought the kids presents before actually giving them to the kids. Correct?
