Scouting out a Birthday or Christmas gift for a nine or ten year old boy can be such fun. He is at an age where he has a lot of interests and he is always thrilled to discover a present with his name on it.
Active, inquisitive, and endearing a 9 or 10 year old boy loves to see a video game, sports equipment, sweet treat, money, or toys gifted to him.
Watching his favorite television shows, tossing around a ball, playing with his toy cars, playing video games, or chasing his friends or his sister around the yard, a school age boy seems to have a boundless amount of energy. He is always busy doing something.
Fitness Gifts are Important for Today's Kids
Times have changed a lot since we were kids. We spent a lot our time outdoors and playing. With the introduction of computers and video games children today are much more sedentary than we were.
After school kids spend time playing video games or watching television and although these activities can increase their intelligence and skills children also need physical activity.
A few great fitness gift suggestions for summer are: basketball and net, soccer ball and net, skateboard, roller skates, baseball equipment, golf clubs, trampoline, swim passes to the local pool, and swim gear ie: goggles, flippers, aqua mask, water slide.
A few of the best winter fitness gifts for boys are Interactive video games, hockey gear, skates, snow toboggan, snow board, swim passes to the local pool, snow shoes, indoor fitness gifts, or winter skis.
Get Him up Playing. He'll Enjoy it.
With kids spending a large part of their day in a school desk, watching television, or playing video games a gift that gets him up and playing is one of the best gifts that you can give.
A soccer, hockey, or basketball net is ideal for any season. He'll enjoy playing these active games with his friends. This type of play set is ideal for a 9 or 10 year old boy.
For indoors or out a trampoline is a very exciting gift for a child. There are larger sized ones or small personal style as well. He will have so much fun bouncing on his trampoline that he won't even realize that he is actually exercising and getting physically fit with every jump he takes.
Interactive Video Game Systems Keep Fitness at the Fore
Kids are Raised on Electronics: Tablet, Laptop, Video Games
It's always nice to let those boys play it out especially while burning off all of their energy that us parents wish we could bottle up and sell.
With all of the interactive games that can be purchased for the Nintendo Wii system it makes it a little bit easier (well okay a lot easier) to say yes to those energetic boys and the video games that they crave to play.
Gaming systems sure have changed since the 80's, and now that kids can get up and move while they play. Now that interactive games are here parents are allowing more video gaming time for their children and have even incorporated game systems into their family night activities.
With some great family games such as Skylanders, Just Dance and Wii Sports, just to name a few, Nintendo have always been at the top of the food chain where the gaming industry are concerned. Find out what all of the fuss is about.
If he has to Have Weaponry Make it Nerf or Water Based
With so many different different Nerf dart guns and blasters to choose from, your pre-teen boys will have a blast with their friends for countless hours trying to outdo the next with their target skills. A double pack is ideal because it comes with extra ammo for our son plus a friend to play.
It's great to have the play without worrying about our boys being hurt with the ammo that is used. With these "soft ammo" weapons it is much safer play for kids. There are even tactical vests available for the extra protection us parents require for our children and they come with the cool look our boys want. With Nerf anything is possible!
Water or bubble blasters are another great way to play without too much roughness. Bubble guns add a very humorous twist to weaponry for kids. Stomp rockets are another very popular toy for boys. They came out a few years ago and show no sign of slowing down in their kid appeal.
