At the ripe old age of seven, Luca still likes toys, but less. It seems like seven begins the age where their tastes become more specific. They’re getting older and are becoming individuals! It makes sense. But there are still a few toys or things I see that seven year old boys just love. Here they are:
The number one toy around here and with the boys’ friends is still Legos. I bought some used Legos in bulk from eBay and a few sets from the store. I think Lego forgot that they are making small molded pieces of plastic because the prices are outrageous, but this is a toy that keeps interest for about a decade! You can’t go wrong with Legos. (Robot pictured.)
This box of rocks, minerals, sharks teeth and fossils was a huge hit. The boys trade them, examine them and try to identify the rocks. I would definitely recommend this one. I’ve ordered two of them.
Along with the minerals, a rock book to identify them and learn more is a great idea. And anything to keep a seven year old boy with his nose in a book. They don’t hold still very long!
If you’re going on an adventure, you obviously need a satchel to put you stuff in. Little boys love collecting things and mine put their nature finds and special treasure in here.
Both my boys love wearing an outback/safari hat during their adventures.
They boys wear this safari vest with lots of pockets for important expeditions.
A binocular, flashlight and compass set would be a great pair with the vest, hat or satchel.
Dog Man book series
I don’t know about the little boy in your life, but it’s tough to get my 7 year old to practice reading. The only book we’ve tried so far that he can’t put down is Dog Man. It’s silly and nonsensical, perfect for young boys! Captain Underpants is also wildly funny and popular.
National Geographic subscription
This gift is a favorite of mine. Not only does a magazine subscription get them reading, but it’s something they will benefit from the whole year! They get so excited getting their own mail too.
Get some of that little boy energy out with some games!
- baseball, glove and bat …
- 0r a plastic baseball set with bases for the family to play
- soccer ball and goal
- junior football
Seven year olds are getting more coordinated, but they can get frustrated with sports rules and not being able to play as well as they’d like. That’s why I like this Velcro catch game.
I love these personalized jerseys! Would go great with some of the sports equipment. Would it be too cheesy to do the whole family?!
And finally, what is cooler than a shark necklace? Nothing, that’s what. I bought this one for my son and he wore it for weeks straight.
