Do you have a 9 year old on your list this year? Today, I am going to share my Top Toys For 9 Year Olds!
In my opinion the ages between 8 – 10 are the hardest to shop for. They are not babies but not yet a teen. My youngest son loves to play anything that requires thinking, running and sports related.
So, today I sat down and came up with what I think would be great gift ideas for him this Christmas. Plus I included one that benefits us by keeping dirty clothes off the floor but fun for them 😉
I hope they give you a little inspo if you have a 9 year old on your list this year.
