Boys in the nine to ten year old range have a variety of interests. These interests could be based on things they learn in school, or at social activities such as being part of a sports team. When you are trying to find a gift for a boy that is nine or ten years old, take some time and visit the toy section of a local store. Look around at what others his age are buying, it can help give you clues for your gift.
Putting together a model will teach the young man analytical skills that can help him both in school and social situations. A model will give him an opportunity to work with a parent or another adult when he needs assistance in putting pieces together that are challenging. He will start to learn about the parts of these vehicles and what makes them run.
Help him show off his allegiance to his favorite sports teams by purchasing clothing featuring his favorite team or player. These items can be relatively inexpensive such as a t-shirt or hat. It could also be more expensive items such as official team jerseys or jackets.
MP3 Players and Accessories
A MP3 player will allow the pre-teen to enjoy listening to his favorite music whenever he wishes. If he already has a player, this opens up the opportunity to purchase him items such as earphones for the player or gift cards so he can download music from his favorite musical performers.
Students these days are learning to use technology at an early age. A smaller version of a laptop, known as a Netbook usually has a screen between seven and nine inches in size diagonally. These small laptops can be used to complete school projects that require typing, by using word processing software. They can also be used for entertainment by the student. Those options range from watching a movie on a DVD on his Netbook to communicating with friends on family over the Internet.
It's much too early to purchase a car for boys in this age range, but they still need to get around. A skateboard is one option for transportation, and a scooter is another. If you want to spend a few more dollars, and electric scooter will remove the need for him to push with his foot while riding it.
