Toys That Boys Want The Most

What are the most wanted toys by boys this year? Ads on TV and in magazines might offer an idea except that those ads are being paid for by the company who makes the toys which slants the results somewhat. Looking at a best selling list of toys might help, but those are the toys that adults have purchased for a boy and not necessarily what he actually wanted. I have consulted a list of most wanted toys by boys and have compiled a short version here on this page for you to look through for ideas on what to buy a boy that will be something that he really wants to play with.

Angry Birds Star Wars Fighter Pods Jenga Death Star

The Angry Birds Star Wars Jenga game is for 1 or 2 players. Make the Death Star by stacking the Jenga blocks and then launch the Angry Birds to attack it.

Included are Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Chewbacca birds which are launched in the X-Wing Fighter, Darth Vader and 4 Stormtrooper pigs.

Ages 8 and up.

Snap Circuits Jr. – Build more than 100 projects

These Snap Circuits are a fun introduction to electronics and how they work. This hands-on kit has over 30 color-coded, real circuit components that easily snap together to create a range of circuits and devices.

Electronic equipment provided includes slide switches, snap wires and an alarm circuit. There’s even an integrated music circuit and a speaker.

Requires: 2 AA batteries (not included)

Suitable for ages 8 years and up – if your children like it, the set is compatible with more advanced snap circuit sets, so they can create more and more complex electronic circuits. 

LEGO Ninjago Ultra Sonic Raider Set – One of the best selling toys on Amazon

The Ninjagos mission is to use the Ultra Sonic Raider to track down Pythor and his side-kick Spitta, a soldier of the Venomari tribe, who have stolen the Fangpyre fang blade

Pursue the baddies across the rugged terrain or convert the Ultra Sonic Raider into a flying vehicle and take to the skies. Or you may just be successful by lulling the snakes with some ancient snake music.

6 Ninjago minifigures are included: Cole ZX, Jay ZX, Kai ZX, Zane ZX, Pythor and Spitta plus four special golden weapons and five regular weapons.

Suitable for: 6 – 14 years

Kre-O vs Lego – Which is better?

Brok the Brachiosaurus Dinosaur – VTech Switch & Go Dinos

Convert Brok the Dinosaur into a race car with just the flick of a few switches. When in dino mode, Brok will move his mechanical and motorized neck when you push a button. Push him along and he will stomp his feet.

In car mode, you can load up and carry your favorite Switch & Go Dinos (not included). A race car is also included together with a pterodactyl. Both can be launched by pushing on the spoiler.

Recommended ages: 3 – 8 years

Fisher-Price Gotham City Batman Jail

Boys do not play with dollhouses, gracious no! But they do like to have buildings that their action figures can hang out and do cool things in. Boys are asking for the Fisher-Price Imaginext Batman Gotham Jail, this year. There are five jail cells with images of Gotham City’s most famous villains. A boy can even use the Bat signal when Batman needs to come to the rescue.

Scooter Toys For Boys

A great kick scooter for boys aged 5 years of age and older. Conveniently folds up for transporting in the car. Sturdy aircraft grade aluminum is used in the construction of this scooter. Offers a rear fender brake for quick stopping.

Most Wanted Skateboard: Drop Kick Longboard

Boys are asking for the longboard skateboard this year. Offers a maple laminate deck and super high rebound wheels. The style of the longboard skateboard allows for better stability when going downhill and makes for nicer ride when he is just skating through town.

Remote Control Toys

Boys can fly this helicopter outside but it is also small enough for indoor flights, too. Made of durable metal and sure to offer hours of fun for boys to pretend to fly and even battle with each other.

Boys Love Remote Control Cars

This rock crawler offers a fun remote control experience for boys. Articulated suspension for both the front and rear of the vehicle and two motors with low gearing. Runs on 3 AA batteries for the off road vehicle and 1 9V batter for the controller that will need to be purchased separately. Recommended for boys 8 years old and older.

Toys That Encourage The Love Of Sports

Boys, girls too, should be encouraged to play some kind of sport. They can choose which sport they like the best. Playing on a team sport provides lessons in following direction, teamwork and getting along with others. Individual sports are great, too, for the discipline they learn in honing their skills. A few toys that boys love that are sports driven.

Kids tablet

Whether it’s an iPad mini, a Nexus 7 or a Kindle Fire – a tablet makes a great gift for any child.

It is useful to know that all three have parental controls options built in, so that is not the standard to pick one by.

When it comes to apps the difference isn’t all that great either: all the popular gaming apps and ebook apps are available for all three.
