10 Hottest Christmas Toys For Bigger Boys

Most Suitable For Boys Aged 7 Years And Up

Hot Wheels RC Terrain Twister Vehicle - Top Christmas Toys For Boys

The hot wheels terrain twister will make a great Christmas or birthday gift for boys aged 7 years and up and especially as it is one of the hottest toys of 2013. This big RC vehicle which measures approximately 20 inches X 8 inches X 14.2 inches is rugged and built to go anywhere including the very toughest of terrains like grass, sand, water, dirt and snow and it comes out victorious.

Boys will have loads of fun and adventure with this RC terrain vehicle as long as they are in control of the RC device. The vehicle comes with a rechargeable 7.2V TMH flexpak battery and charger, an RC controller and also comes in bright bold colors.

Skylanders Giants

The Skylanders have been a very popular video game amongst many and with the release of the new Skylanders giants, fans are expected to enjoy even more adventures. If you have a boy or know of one who is really looking forward to seeing the skylanders join forces with The Skylanders giants to battle Kaos, then this Wii gaming system is just the right gift for them this season.

Already predicted as one of the hottest toys/gifts for 2013, you wouldn't want to wait till last minute before buying one.

The Skylanders giants pack comes with the game, portal of power, 3 Skylanders figures, 1 character collector poster, 3 sticker sheets with secret codes, and 3 trading cards.

Nerf Hail-Fire Blaster

Another children's toy right at the top of the most wanted toys is the Nerf hailfire blaster which is really on every "big boys" wish list and when I say big boys I don' t only refer to boys aged 8 years and up but also the adult boys too.

The Nerf hail fire is a dream come true for boys who love action packed fun with some adrenaline rush. The reason the hailfire is highly sought after is because of its capacity to hold upto 144 darts at one time and this allows you to unleash a storm at your target at a very high speed.

The Nerf N strike Elite Hail fire Blaster will allow you to fire at targets up to 75 feet and as long as you can pull the trigger easily and fast, it is action-packed all the way. The pack includes HAILFIRE blaster body, ammo rack cover (two pieces), advance handle (two pieces), four Quick Reload Clips, 24 Elite Darts, and instructions.

Although I am not a big fan of guns, I cannot deny the fact that this toy is hot right now and that some children will be getting it this Christmas but I do advice that the kids be supervised by an adult at all times whenever this is in use especially if you decide to get it for the "not so big boys".

LEGO Ninjago

If you have got a child who loves Lego and also loves Ninja, then the LEGO Ninjago Epic Battle may be just the perfect gift for them. With a ninja themed stating and 900 Lego pieces to put together, I'd say there is never going to be a dull moment when your child picks this up to play with.

The LEGO Ninjago is no ordinary Lego but one that involves imaginative skills to be able to tell a story, the famous story of the heroic Ninjago ninjas who are battling against the great devourer serpent in order for good to defeat evil.

This set will be most suitable for children who are familiar with the Ninjago TV series and who are ready to work with that many Lego pieces because building the set can be fun as well as challenging but will bring out the creativity in your child. Younger children who are fans and love the Ninjago sets may be better off with the other Ninjago sets with fewer pieces.

The set includes the Ninjago Epic Dragon Battle pieces (915 total), two instruction booklets, and decals and is recommended for children 8-14 years.
