The EMMs decided to share what toys and other items were the favorites of their kids. Here are ideas for gifts to give 8-13 year old boys.

My big kid on his 9th birthday

  • Legos
  • Nerf
  • Mine is obsessed with anything military (books, clothes, movies, games, models)
  • Sports jerseys
  • We gave our son a “real” bike (with gears) for his 9th bday and he LOVES it
  • My 8 year old is obsessed with the Epic Perplexus! Takes it everywhere
  • My 9 yr old wants bayblades. That’s it.
  • Mine loves music- so I tunes cards, hats, and we got him a drum set last year and he loved it
  • iPod
  • I’m getting my nine year old nephew the first two Harry potter books.
  • Xbox games
  • itunes cards
  • ANYTHING sports related
  • Air Hogs helicopter that he can fly with his ipod touch
  • Remote controlled whatever
  • Skylanders
  • My 8yr old son wants a skateboard this year. He got a laptop for Christmas last year and is into Minecraft.
  • If your child is interested in firearms (my 9 year old is near obsessed) – Range USA offers a Youth & Safety Marksmanship class for 6-10 yr olds. It’s an adult/child class – 5 hours! We gave this to our son for his bday and he and my husband are going on Sunday.
