I decided to take a look to see what toys for boys are rising in popularity this spring. Theses are all highly-rated toys according to actual buyer reviews.
This toy called an Electronic Hyperslide is a fast-paced game where you have to slide the correct disc under the arch before time runs out. There are various games to play for both single player and 2 players. This looks like a fun game for children looking for something a little more exciting.
Recommended ages: 6-12 years
Now here are a couple of toys that I wish was available when I was a child. It is from a series of toys called Snap Circuits, which allow children to create electrical circuits using easy-to-assemble components. This is an award winning and extremely highly ranked series of toys, and they would be great for any child that has an interest in computers or engineering.
This one is called Snap Circuits Jr, and has over 100 projects. It is recommended for ages 8-15 years.
This next set is the Snap Circuits SC-300 and has more parts and includes over 300 projects.
Recommended age: 8-15 years
Now if you want a toy that does not involve electricity then this building set might fit the bill. This is the Melissa and Doug Building Block set. It is very highly rated, and fosters a child’s ingenuity and creativity.
Recommended age: 3 yrs and up
This next toy really lets boys be boys. It’s the Nerf N-Strike Elite Stryfe CS-18 Mission Kit by Hasbro. This is a pretty large toys, and shoots nerf darts with more power than the smaller models.
