The best gifts for 7-year-old boys are ones that tap into their specific interests. Boys this age are active, curious and ready for adventure. Seven-year-old boys like toys that let them get creative and be part of the action. Whether you're shopping for your son, nephew or a friend's child, it's a good idea to find out the specific interests of the 7-year-old. This can go a long way in helping you to choose the best gift.

Top Toys for Boys

Always near the top of any 7-year-old's list are remote control cars, trucks or robots.

Legos come in a variety of kits, such as Star Wars, Harry Potter and space shuttles.

Seven-year-old boys love to create worlds of adventure with action figures. From Spiderman to dinosaurs, there's an action figure that will bring every boy's imagination to life.


You can't miss with techie toys. Top-of-the-line game consoles like the Wii, Xbox or PlayStation will enthral every 7-year-old boy and provide hours of playtime. Portable versions of these game systems, such as the Nintendo DS or Sony's PSP, can be played in any room of the house or taken on car rides. If your 7-year-old already has a gaming system, there are a wide selection of age-appropriate game cartridges for these systems that can take your little one on all kinds of adventures.

Sports & the Outdoors

Seven-year-old boys are active and love the outdoors, so a gift they can take outside is always a good choice. Gifts of baseballs and gloves, basketballs, soccer balls and the gear to go with them would be a good selection for the active boy. If you know the boy's favourite team, look for ball caps and jerseys with the team logo.

Not into sports? Then think about the ultimate gift: a bike. Bikes come in a variety of styles from mountain bikes to dirt bikes and designs such as Spiderman. A 20" wheel size is usually a good fit for the average 7-year-old boy and one that will give him miles of fun.
