Best Gifts- 7 Year Old Boy

Updated on July 16, 2014

5 Great Gifts for 7 Year Old Boys

Gifts for 7 year old boys need to include items where they can burn off some of that boundless energy that they seem to have and also to use their imaginations. In looking for just the right gifts for a 7 year old boy, I consulted with my 7 year old granddaughter Ella. Ella has many friends who are boys and she is a bit of a tomboy herself.

The five gifts that Ella and I chose include a riding toy, an electronic toy, a sporting toy and a couple of items to fuel their imagination.

I hope this list will help you to find the perfect gift for your 7 year old.

Nintendo 3DS - hours of gaming fun

The Nintendo DSI was full of hours of fun and gaming and now the new Nintendo 3DS has even more features. It allows you to play in 3D with out the need for special glasses. This new 3DS also allows you to connect to a wireless experience so that you can share your gaming experience with other Nintendo 3DS users.

This will certainly be a hot gift for boys in the 7 year age group for this Christmas.

In addition to playing games you can take pictures in 3 D. The Nintendo 3DS includes one inner camera and 2 outer cameras. All lenses are single focus.

One great feature is a depth slider which allows the user to regulate a comfortable level of 3D just by moving the slider.

This Nintendo also features a parental control so that you can turn off the 3D for younger children.


Huffy Green Machine - gift for advanced riders

Do have someone on your gift list that would enjoy a wild ride and quick turns. The Green Machine will be just the ride for him. I have watched our grandchildren and their friends have hours of fun riding these lowriding big wheel stye trikes. The manufacturer recommends these machines for anyone age 6 through adults.

This low riding trike has joy stick control for rear wheel steering. It also has front wheel hand brakes, ensuring excellent stopping power. The low profile molded seat gives them the power to feel the road.

Ella is using the joy sticks to turn the rear wheels and bring the Green Machine into a skid.

Wisecracking Spiderman - stimulates imagination

This gift is great for the young man who loves superheros. It is a great way for him to develop scenerios between Spiderman and the "bad guys" and encourages the use of his imagination.

With just a push of the Spiderman logo he will hear the superhero say 10 heroic phrases and make battle sounds.

This Spiderman can launch 2 web missles to warn the bad guy that he is coming and they better watch out! Toy encourages hours of playtime fun!


Transformers Prime Rumble - Hot New Item

This new transformer is on Amazon's hot item list! It is sure to be a great addition for your 7 year olds Christmas.

Basket Ball - sporting equipment a great choice

Is your young man into sports? Whether he likes basketball, football, soccer, baseball or some other sport, sporting equipment is always a good choice for a gift.

      These are awesome gifts suggestions! Boys toys haven't changed much since my son was a little fellow. I easily remember his first Nintendo hand held game. He played it all day that Christmas :) He didn't have the awesome Huffy Green Machine, but something close and he zoomed that around the inside of the house on another Christmas day. Transformers were another hit toy. Some of them were pretty awesome even back then.

      My 3 grandsons are 10 and 'teens', so don't have a suggestion for the 7-year-old range. But you have some fun ones listed here that will be popular this Christmas for sure!
