Before you start your Christmas shopping, check out the top deals for boys age 7-9.

This is a fun age for boys. They’re constantly on the go and it’s important to find toys for them that keep them active and holds their attention.

Top Gifts for Boys Age 7-9:

chrono bomb

Chrono Bomb Action Game 

Retails: $19.99

I saw this game at a conference I went to this summer and I knew my kids would love it!  Set up the clamps and strings and create a “mission” for your kids.  They crawl through the obstacle and at the end of the maze is a bomb, counting down.  The goal is not only to get to the end, but don’t bump a string or the clock will count down faster.  It never gets old because you can constantly build new courses.  Plus, download the app and scan a mission card.  It adds even more fun to the game!


DohVinci Gingerbread House Kit

Retails: $14.99

No matter how old I get, I never get tired of Play-Doh (unless I find dried pieces on the floor under my feet).  Play-Doh is always coming up with ways to make their product even more fun.  Pop your favorite color into the styler and squeeze it out to make beautiful, unique 3D designs.  No two designs will be the same, so they can play with their DohVinci Gingerbread House Kit over and over again.  Create snow, icicles and any other festive decorations with the seven Deco Pop colors.  This pack includes the gingerbread-style house, additional scene decorations, styler tool and the seven colors.


Hasbro SORRY Game

Retails: $7

This game is a classic and a favorite.  Slide, collide and score to be on your way to winning the game of SORRY!Slide, collide and score to win the game of SORRY! Players draw cards to see how many spots they get to move their pawns towards the finish line.  The best part of the game is landing on a slide so you can zip to the end and bump someone else’s pawns.  The goal is to be the first player to get all four game pieces to the finish zone to win the game.  


Nerf ProBounce Basketball

Retails: $20

You may have to make some new rules about dribbling the basketball inside the house with this one.  The Nerf ProBounce Basketball is soft but it still dribbles, grips and shoots like a regular basketball.  Your kids are going to play like a pro with this soft-foam basketball that really bounces!  It’s a spin on a classic, and besides, who doesn’t love all things Nerf??

phlat ball v3phlat ball jr.

Goliath Phlat Ball

V3 Retails: $15
Jr. Retails: $10

Okay, this toy is seriously cool.  I saw it at a toy event this summer and the first thing I thought of was how great it would be for an Operation Christmas Child shoebox.  Toys like balls don’t always get included in the boxes because they take up so much room, but the Phlat Ball flattens and takes up so much less room.  The Jr. Phlat Ball should fit in your shoe box, but the V3 may not fit.  It folds flat like a frisbee and when it’s in mid-air, it turns into a ball for someone else to catch.  When I dropped off donations at Jubilee Academy, a couple of the kids were around and saw what we were unloading.  This was one of the first things that caught their eye.  They were so excited for Christmas so they’d be able to play with it.


Ripstick Caster Board

Retails: $48

The Ripstick Caster Board is for kids age 8+ and it’s kind of like a Razor scooter for older kids.  It’s like a skateboard/snowboard hybrid on wheels.  The Caster Board is the shape of a skateboard but it looks like it’s straight out of Back to the Future.


Fun Express Plastic Balls Puzzle

Retails: $6

If your kids are into critical thinking and brain teasers, this could be a fun gift for them!  It comes with 12 puzzles total, so it could keep them busy for awhile.  These puzzles are a great thing to bring on a road trip if you’ll be traveling on Christmas day.  Grab a bag to keep it all in and they’ll forget all about video games and DVDs.


LEGO Minecraft Kit

Retails: $20

Minecraft has been all the rage this year.  This kit comes with 219 pieces and your kids can build and rebuild their own Minecraft creations.

marble run

Marble Run 103 Piece Set

Retails: $35

Does anyone else remember endless hours with a set like this when they were a kid?  You can assemble your own marble run and watch the marbles make it all the way through the course.  The nice thing is that they take standard marbles, so replacing them is easy.


Zing Air Storm Fire Tek Bow

Retails: $25

Kind of like a more grown up sling shot, this bow looks like so much fun.  Adding to the appeal of a giant sling shot, the arrows whistle when they fly and the bow and arrows both light up.
