Gifts For 10 Year Old Boys

10 year old boys have a wide rang of interests which you will find reflected in their choice of toys and activities. They are rarely still and always seem to have something going on

Buying a gift for a boy of this age really isn't all that difficult if you take this into account and pick things that will challenge and engage his interest. Because of this buying for a 10 year can be a fun experience and you just might find that it brings out the kid in you.

This article on Best Christmas Gifts For 10 Year Old Boys lists some of the top picks for boys gifts. So keep reading if you need a few more tips and ideas for Christmas presents.

Nerf Dart Guns

Nerf dart guns make great Christmas presents for boys of all ages.

When it comes to nerf guns you may be surprised at the large selection available, but nerf collectors take their sport very seriously and I've been told that you can never have too many nerf guns.

Extra darts and a nerf vest to allow you to keep extra ammo nearby and make re-loading easier is also a must.


Fun Video Games For Boys

There are a lot of fun video games in the 10 year old age rang so I'm sure that you'll probably find several games that will appeal to you or your 10 year old.

And if some of these games may seem pretty familiar to you, this may be because the game developers have been bringing back some of the more popular games from the past like the Super Mario and the Donkey Kong games for instance. Games like this are fun for parents to play with their kids, and you will find them a great way to spend time together doing something that you all enjoy.

Most of these games are available for several different game systems like the Nintendo Wii , Xbox 360 and the PlayStation.

Games like Cars and Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympics are fast and fun action games.

The Haunted House is fun exploring game based on a game from the 1980's that will enjoy playing with your kids.

The Mario vs Donkey Kong Mini Land Mayhem is a crazy fun game for parents and kids alike.

The Ben 10 games which are based on the popular kid's show Ben 10, tend to be pretty popular with 6-10 age group.

Lego Sets For Christmas

Lego sets are also a popular gift for boys and will give you and your kids many fun hours together building the various sets

You may find it a little over-whelming considering the large selection of legos on the market today.

So to make things easier I've listed some of the more popular sets like the Lego Hogwarts game and Lego Hogwarts Castle, both of these are a must have for Harry Potter fans. The Lego Harry Potter sets which make great collectibles tend to go up in price fairly quickly after they have been retired.  I've noticed this to be especially true with the Hogwarts Castle sets, because of this it's probably best to buy sooner than later with any of the Hogwarts Castle sets.

The Lego Indiana Jones sets are also very popular with boys with the Motorcycle Chase and the Lego Indiana Jones and the Lost Tomb being a couple of good choices for Christmas gifts.

The Lego City sets also make a nice gift for boys. Over time you can collect different pieces to this set and build a whole city to display and play with.


Toy Robots

What boy doesn't love robots?
Robots always make a great gift for boys and in fact this seems to be true with any boy no matter how young or how old.

WowWee 8405 Roborover

This fun little guy has up to five minutes of spoken content plus he can play games with you. He also has a follow me function which allows him to search for you.

WowWee Tribot Talking Companion

This cute little wheeled robot makes a great companion with his jokes and games. Robot requires 3 AAA batteries to work.

Mr. Robot

Five function robot walks backwards and forwards, shoots discs and dances. Kids like to use his disc shooting abilities to do battle with their other action toys.

Iron Man Walking RC Robot.

Walking and talking remote controlled Iron Man walks and shoots missiles while you control the action with your remote control. My son likes to use his to do battle with other toys and sometimes the cats who are intrigued with the new toy.


Erector Sets

Erector sets which have been around since the early 1900's are a good toy to engage a young boys interest in building and electronics as many of the erector sets are motorized.

It's also a good way for a parent or grandparent to spend some quality time together while working on a fun project.

Amazon and eBay has a large variety of erector sets available. Some of the sets on eBay can be quite old and occasionally you may even find a set from the early 1900's which makes a nice collectible.

Pat has a 10 year old boy on her Christmas list - and both of us have younger boys for whom we buy gifts. This is a useful hub! our favourite presents are the ones that we can play with as well as the boys. In our opinion (cause we're old fashioned) we think kids spend too much time on computer games, and not enough on games where they interact with other people.

The lego sets are fun for adults as well as for kids.

Ten year old boys are not so hard to please. Try the new Cobi building products. Made in Europe and are identical to the other well known builder - the difference is that they have a military theme, pirate theme, and racing theme. Also take a look at Spooner Boards. Great for kids 3 to 93. Very versatile indoors or outdoors. Made in the USA too.
