Best Batman Toys and Gifts

Updated on November 27, 2013

The Best Batman Toys and Gifts for Kids

My son (age 6) has loved batman for a couple of years now. And he's not the only one! The little boy who lives nextdoor to us loves batman too. My nephews as well as some of my son's friends from school are batman fans!

If the child you're buying for likes batman then this article has suggestions and ideas of lots of the best batman toys and gifts. It features batman lego - this has been one of my son's favorite gifts. There are other batman construction toys, the best batmobile toys, batman bedroom d├ęcor and lights, batman playsets, batman DS games, batman dress up and lots more.

The good thing about Batman is that his appeal can be from toddlers to older children and the great range of toys available reflects this. I'm hoping that this page can help you make sure you pick a toy that they are going to love because for every cool fun Batman toy available, there are twenty bad ones that they won't thank you for. So take a look and I'm sure there is something for everyone and every budget.

Batman Lego - The Batcave

I'm excited about this one as its a gift we have bought for my 5 year old son. My son loves Legos and Batman so he is going to love this. The age group says between 7-14 and I assume that refers to how much help they are going to need in making it. My son has been using Lego for ages now and has just started taking an interest in following instructions and making more complex models but he will need some help with this. While researching this I read a lot of reviews and they were all very positive. The one thing I liked is how high quality and durable they said it was and fun to play with afterwards. Which means younger people will enjoying playing with it and older children will enjoying looking at it. Nice finishing touches included a big red bat phone and changeable heads on the figures. This is one of those presents that you have to watch out for Dads taking over!

 

More Batman Lego

As well as buying batman lego you can also make your own creations.

Check out this youtube video on how to make a lego batmobile or make your own lego batcave.

You can also check out the extra lego batman sets below.

Every one loves the batmobile and lego version doesn't disappoint. The set also comes with an additional vehicle to make that belongs to 2-face. So not only is it good value but extra fun to play with after they have enjoyed building them.

Batman Dress Up Clothes

My son loves dressing up and just running around the house defeating bad guys, We actually made most of his batman costume. It's easier that you think! We used some black trousers, a black batman mask - (which we bought), a black t-shirt and a black cape (easy to make). Stick a batman lego on the t-shirt and hey presto your batman. Check out this homemade batman costume to give you an idea.

However, if you prefer the easy life you can just buy one. Like the one below!

Batmobile - Bat Car and Other Bat Vehicles.

Both my boys (aged 6 and 2) are car mad. Another great batman gift to get them is a batmobile or other bat vehicle like the one below.

Fisher-Price Imaginext DC Super Friends, Batmobile with Lights

It looks cool and and even has a little Batman figure that you can fit inside of it which is also cool.

With a flick of a switch it turns from a sleek Batmobile to a rough and tough Bat-tumbler and just as easily back again. My son spent ages driving around and using his imagination in fantastic way, it was a joy to behold.

 

Batcaves

Batcaves are a great accessory for batman games.

You can make your own lifesized batcaves. Create a batcave out of a tent - check out this article which features a batman tent as part of a supehero birthday party.

Or maybe paint your own batman logo on a large cardboard box for a batcave.

There are also some fantastic toy batcaves. Check out two below.

Trio Batcave

My son loves construction sets like legos but I'm always looking out for different construction ideas. If they have a batman theme they are also sure to be a hit. This is why I've featured the trio set below. The trio sets have blocks which are easy to snap together which makes them a good choice for younger kids.

This bat cave set is so much fun because its easy for kids to put together and is fun to play with. It also looks good to! Its easier to follow the instructions and put together than the Lego sets which means younger children will find it ideal. You can make various different kinds of bat cave or let them use there imagination to see what they can come up with. As with most Fisher price toys the durability and build quality is excellent

 

Imaginext Bat Cave

This bat cave is great fun for children of all ages and that's because there is lots to do to to help them really get the most from their imagination. The four floors each have plenty of things to do. There's a little activation disk that does fun things like activate secret entrances and work lifts. It has a jail that you can throw the bad guys in and has a huge batman light at the front that lights up and looks especially great if you turn the light off. Its great to play with and its durable and built to last.

 

NIntendo DS Batman Lego 2

The Lego games on the Nintendo DS have always been a hit with fans of all ages. If the child you're buying for has a Nintendo DS and like Batman then they probably have the first game in this series already. The sequel offers more of the same with extra characters like Superman and additional things to do. The game had numerous good reviews do so you can't really go wrong with this as a gift and it will keep them occupied for ages and I must admit I enjoyed having a quick go as well but don't tell anybody...

 

Batman Bedroom Accessories

Batman fans will love to decorate their bedroom or own personal space with batman related accessories.

There are lots of ideas for this. Some ideas include:

Batman bedding

Batman lamps (there's one featured below)

Batman wall stickers (also featured below)

Batman curtains

Batman posters.

You can also make your own batman accessories for your bedroom. Take a picture of your child dressed up in their batman costume. Frame it and put in on one of the walls.

You could also make your own batman flashlight to have in your room.

First thing you'll notice about this is that it looks great and the quality is high! These are not cheap stickers plus they are pretty big as well coming in at 44 by 33 inches. Its very easy to attach to any wall and can be removed and re-positioned without leaving a sticky residue or a mark. The good things about these are that they are a lot cheaper and easier than getting Batman wallpaper that's for sure. And you can buy additional sets to add to the effect.

Is there anything thing more iconic for Batman fans that the Bat light! This night light not only helps a child drift of to sleep with it soothing lights it also looks great. Kids will want to go to bed just to use this (well sometime anyway!). Its flat on one side so it fits snug against a wall and has a sensor that detects the amount of light in the room so it can alter the brightness.

 

Batman Outdoor Toys

There's nothing better than playing batman games outside.

And what could be cooler than having your own mode of batman transport.

My sons love playing outside, it gives them all the space they need to play their superhero games.

Check out a batman trike or a batmobile below - how cool are they?

Aimed at kids between 2 and 6 years this batman trike is perfect for the young batman fan.

It's a sturdy trike with an oversized front wheel for faster pedaling and a wide wheel base for stability

The handle bar unit has a face plate with buttons and Batman sounds that link to the working signal lights.

There are 3 adjustable heights so the trike can grow with your child

 

Batman Books

There are lots of batman themed books for the batman fan.

One way we encouraged our son to read is to buy him learn to read batman themed books. We borrowed ours from the library so this is a good place to try or check out the learn to read books below.

There are lots of other great themed batman books. My son loves anything with stickers so a batman sticker book would get him really excited. Another option I've featured below is a lego batman book.
