Best Christmas Toys for 9 Year Old Boys

Updated on May 11, 2014

Best Toys for 9 Year Old Boys - Christmas 2014

Are you looking for some awesome gifts for a 9 year old boy this christmas so that you get screams and yells and happy dances instead of half-smiles and strained thank yous?

See the Gun on the left - it's the Xploderz Ground Pounder - guaranteed to make most 9 year old boys freak out! (heck, I really want to play with it and I'm 39)

I have a huge selection of the best toys for 9 year old boys here - I have great experience with this. My son is 8 and his best friend is 9. I homeschool and his best friend's mom is my best friend so we are always with them. I know EXACTLY what 9 year old boys think is cool and I have asked this boy MANY times what he wants for christmas.

This is the list - along with everything I've ever heard him say is cool or heard him say he wants.

So this year, the coolest toys for 9 year old boys are the Xploders guns and the Battle Machines - there is a more expensive version of the battle machines this year. It is the Battle tracker. I know - why would you want the more expensive version? I don't know - they are from two different companies. Just letting you know.

The HOTTEST Toys for 9 year old boys are the Spy Glasses - or possibly any spy net product, plus the Air Swimmers. The air swimmers shark and clown fish are very hot this Christmas. They do require helium though.

Nano Speed Cars and Tracks

Tiny cars that are lightening fast - like hot wheels, but faster.

 

New Nerf Gun - Shoots Teeny Frisbies

This nerf gun is a wonder. I love it. It's not as good as the light darts for nerf gun fighting (because they sting when they hit you), but shooting the little discs is super cool and they go far and fast and right where you aim them.

At under $15 it makes a great present for a 9 year old! (or 7 or 8 year old) :)

XBOX 360 Best. Gift. Ever.

9 year old boys are generally outgrowing their Wii at this age.

If he's a gamer, and he's wanting to play some of the more mature games and his parents are cool with it, an xbox is a great choice.

I definitely think the one with the larger hard-drive is better than the one with the 4 gig hardrive.

 

Coolest and Hottest Toys for 9 year old boys

Skylanders Spyro's Adventure Starter Pack - Nintendo Wii

skylanders is incredibly hot this year. It's a new and very cool video game for the wii, xbox, 3ds, or ps3.

This is the crash set and it comes with two beywheelz. Boys this age are loving these things right now! Based on the tv show.

 

Best Toys for Active boys.

Someone recently bought this skateboarding explained instructional dvd and this skateboard. What a great idea - if he's not already into skateboarding, give him a little nudge. It's a very active sport that requires (and develops) a lot of balance and stamina.

Hot Wheels Stealth Remote Control Car

Hot Wheels R/C Stealth Rides Racing Car - Red

Hot Wheels Stealth riders fold flat and fit in a small case so your boy can put it in his bag and keep it safe and play anywhere. very cool rc gift.

 

Best Cheap-Priced toys for 9 Year Old Boys

First off, don't get him a board game, unless he really LIKES board games and has asked for one.

      I do not fully understand the appeal of a Lite Brix Race Car, but it is crazily popular :)

      I am not sure what to get my 9 year old friend. This helps me some to pick something out. I am glad stuff was cheap.

      I have a little 9 year old to shop for and I think just about ANY of these gifts would be welcome. Love that inexpensive tablet! Perfect for that age, I think.

      When you're not a parent of a child that age, it's difficult to know what is an age appropriate gift item and certainly what is a "hot" item for that age group. Your lens will help people to select gifts for 9 year old boys. Great job!

      Great gift ideas for 9 yr old boys. I like to have a few of those gifts too. I'm old in age and young at heart. Love the Xbox of coarse. We still have video game nights occasionally.
