Surprising a seven-year old with a present on his first day of second grade? Want to make him go crazy when he opens your gift at his birthday party? Need a cute gift idea for a family vacation? The next 10 gifts for seven-year old boys will accomplish all that and more.
Melissa & Doug Underwater Puzzle
Puzzles keep kids entertained for hours and can be preserved as wall art when they’re done! This beautiful underwater seascape features just enough color and animal variation to remain challenging for young kids, without being too hard. They’ll love putting this puzzle together and seeing the orcas, sharks, clown fish, and other sea creatures take shape. Complete the gift with puzzle glue or tape, so the kid you’re giving this puzzle to can enjoy it for years after it’s completed.
The Magic School Bus Collection
Ms. Frizzle has been taking kids on wacky, imaginative field trips for decades. Bring home the Magic School Bus Collection to share it with a seven-year old boy or girl you adore. They’ll learn all about animals, the food chain, properties of physics, and more in an entertaining and captivating way. Plus, if the child you’re shopping for loves the books, then you’ll have an idea for another gift: the Magic School Bus DVDs.
Active seven-year olds will love these velcro toss balls and mitts because they can practice their throwing and catching with greater ease. Unlike typical baseball mitts, these velcro pads have a wider surface—making catching a snap. Buy these velcro toss mitts for a beach vacation, to entertain kids while they’re at an older sibling’s sporting event, or to use in the backyard or at a neighborhood block party.
Avengers Action Figures
Marvel super heroes are a major hit with oodles of kids. That’s because there’s practically one character for every child. This seven-piece Avengers action figure collection features with the Hulk, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Nick Fury—one to represent every year the lucky seven-year old you’re shopping for has been alive.
Slip and Slide
The end of a school year and beginning of summer vacation is cause for gift-giving—at least in our book. Surprise your niece, nephew, grandkid, or children with this backyard slip and slide. It hooks into the hose and provides kids with hours of wet and wild fun. It also saves money otherwise spent on pool memberships and keeps everyone happy and healthy right at home.
Magic Science Kit
Inspire a seven-year old boy to go into science with this magic science kit. Since it’s “for wizards only,” this makes an ideal gift for a kid who loves Harry Potter or all things magic. This package comes with test tubes, powders, and more for kids to mix up and marvel at when chemical reactions occur. Say an incantation before adding ingredients to make little kids feel powerful and a sense of wonder as their imaginations and brains grow.
Aside from LEGOs, K’Nex is one of the better building games. Instead of connecting little bricks, K’Nex Sets allow kids to build pulley systems, cars, planes, and practically anything they can dream up. This particular K’Nex Set comes with 52 models kids can mimic and 600 pieces to snap together. Since there’s always something new to build, this toy will keep kids engaged and playing for years. Who knows, maybe it’ll even inspire a career in engineering?
Kids love to have their own personal space. Gift this space-themed tent so a child you know can set up a station of his or her own. This tent is suitable for a backyard campout, permanent fort in a bedroom, or temporary hideaway on a rainy day. If a child you’re shopping for loves everything outer space, pair this with an extraterrestrial stuffed animal or movie.
Giant Bubble Wand
Blowing bubbles never gets old—especially when they’re bigger than you! This giant bubble wand will astound kids as they make bubbles up to twelve feet in length. The current World Record for the largest soap bubble ever blown is 834 cubic feet—enough to hold over 6,000 gallons of water! Have fun trying to shatter this incredible record when you gift this giant bubble wand.
DVDs are a go-to gift for kids and adults. Get a little insider information from their parents about which movies they’re obsessed with, or introduce a child to one of your all-time favorite films and watch it together. We love DVDs because kids can enjoy them for years, so they’re always a great gift idea no matter how old the child.
We hope your head is brimming with brilliant gift ideas for the little seven-year old boys and girls in your life. Good luck shopping and have fun exploring all of the new and old toys out there for kids.
