5 Great Toy Gift Ideas for 7-Year-Old Boys in 2021

By the age of 7, children have a strong sense of identity and want to assert their independence. They can read, write, and take care of their own hygiene and dressing. Boys, in particular, like to break away from their parents and spend more time with other children playing with interactive toys. They also start displaying strong preferences such as having favourite games, colours, shows, etc. 

So, choosing a gift for your developing young boy can be both simple and complicated. Its simply because you know what their interests are and can choose something they will enjoy playing. But it may be hard to find toys in the exact colour or theme that they prefer.

Luckily, the internet makes it easy to search for all kinds of items, so it has never been easier to find the perfect gift for your unique little one. Keep reading for 5 great toy gift ideas for 7-year-old boys. 

  1. Board Games

One of the best toy gift ideas for 7-year-old boys is board games. At 7, children understand the rules and mechanics of a game and can generally hold their own against adults. For maximum enjoyment, choose games that need luck to win as your boy will have the same chance as adults of winning. 

At abeec® has a great board game called Head 2 Head that 7-year-old boys will enjoy playing with their friends or with the rest of the family. It’s a quick think drawing game that requires contestants to draw something they have picked and then the rest of the participants try and guess what they've drawn. 

  1. Monster Trucks

Monster trucks are some of the best toys for boys whether they are toddlers or school age. 7-year-old boys love comparing their toy cars and trucks with those of their friends. The bigger the truck the better. 

Our mega monster truck is a great gift for your boy as it’s big enough to crush all the other vehicles in the room. Like an actual monster truck, it has mega-sized wheels, a front grille and strong suspension. It also has a cargo bed that can carry any load your little boy's needs to shift.

The truck also has an awesome paint job that will make your 7-year-old the envy of his friends. 

  1. Building Blocks

Psychologists and education specialists have found that children learn best through play. This is why building blocks are such great gifts for 7-year-old boys. 

Playing with blocks helps them with math skills. They must use concepts such as geometry, surface area, balance, and gravity to create their intended structures. Building blocks also increase a child's creativity, vocabulary, and emotional intelligence. 

Our Block Tech Super Car Championship set is a great gift for boys because it combines their love for blocks, toy cars, and racing. It comes with three racing cars as well as five figurines. These include a pitstop, winner’s podium, and a tow truck to take broken down cars out of the racetrack.

The set increases creativity by allowing him to create customized toys using stickers. Our blocks are compatible with other brands so you can add them to your child’s block collection.

  1. Stationery Sets

Stationery are not exactly toys but they can be a great way to empower creative fun. When it comes to gift ideas for 7-year-old boys, you can’t go wrong with a themed stationery set. Kids can create art with them, write stories, doodle ideas and learn to have fun with school assignments. Paper can be folded and cut, post-it notes can be stuck on walls to create a mosaic, and marker pens can draw whatever is in their head. 

Also, school-aged children need stationery for their school activities. A basic stationery set should include:

  • Variety of ballpoint pens and pencils
  • A sharpener
  • A ruler
  • Felt tip pens
  • Notebooks

Choose a theme based on what the child loves. This could be anything from superheroes, unicorns, geometric, etc. If your boy loves writing his own adventure stories, consider getting a set of notebooks with images of his main interest. 

For boys that are obsessed with the planetary system, our Space Explorer Stationery Set are an awesome gift. It comes with an A5 and A6 sturdy notebook that can stand the wear and tear of any child. It also has felt pens and pencils that would impress any stationery lover.

There are also nine pages of space-themed stickers that they will enjoy sticking on their other toys and books. Our stationery set also comes in a beautifully designed case that he can use to store his stationery.
