The Best Gifts for 8 Year Old Boys
If you need a gift for an 8 year old boy, there are plenty of great ones to choose from. If you live in a houseful of little girls, choosing a boy gift sometimes feels impossible, doesn't it?
And even if you do have young boys in your household sometimes you just get stuck and need a little nudge in the right direction to find just the right toy for the 8 year old boy in your life.
These are my favorite gifts for 8 year old boys. As a devoted grandmother, I am very particular about the toys for the children - and of course, like most grandmas, I love to indulge them.

The big fish is great for holiday parties, birthday parties and any time family and friends are gathered together for fun and fellowship!

The Exciting and Fun EZY Roller
Our grandchildren, ages 8 and 10 both received one of these EZY rollers for Christmas 2012. What a cool gift! There is no motor, so there is no noise and no fancy machinery to maintain. This ride-on-scooter is just plain fun. Everybody loves these scooters! Our grands were riding them in the house on Christmas morning! And they will take them to the park. I do not recommend these for riding on the roads, though. Definitely they are too low to the ground to be easily seen from a car. But for sidewalks, driveways, playgrounds and parks, this is an unbeatable toy! Click to read the awesome reviews from other parents at Amazon!
Kids can roll around the yard and the neighborhood on their Ezy Roller!
Cars and Trucks and Things That Move
We all know (if we are parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents) boys of all ages enjoy cars. They love any kind of toys that move. Wind them up, add batteries, find remote control versions, or just push them to go... all they want is something that moves (in reality or imagination) so they can add some action to playtime. They start rolling toy cars when they are toddlers and when they become adults, they still enjoy their cars. Have you ever known a boy or man who did not love automobiles of all kinds?
Whether your son collects Matchbox or Hotwheels, he will love this fun set of 20 cars - this is a good starter set for an 8 year old.
Boys love cars of all kinds and little boys love to have a huge collection!

An 8 year old boy is likely to be interested in science of one sort or another. If he is then a learning toy like this one is going to give him opportunities to explore the topics he is interested in, learn more, and take pride in the results of his project work to completion. The functional kits are the best where he can create a functioning item with the process of putting the pieces together.
