Toys for 9 Year Olds and 10 Year Olds Buying Guide
Your child is forming meaningful friendships, with members of the same sex. She is energetic and enjoys elaborate pretend play, outdoor games and conversations with her friends.
Ages 9 and 10 Years Old
Gender stereotypes shouldn't hold kids back, especially when it comes to play! Kids benefit from a variety of learning toys. But if you're shopping for a child whose interests are unknown, it helps to sort by gender as a starting point.
Popular toys for 9 and 10 year old boys include advanced science kits, especially thing that explode! Nine and ten year old boys may also enjoy strategy games and brain teasers. Many 9 and 10 year old girls enjoy design and fashion design kits are popular for this age group. There are also many educational science kits that mix beauty products and science for a fun and super girly combination.
You can view our best selling toys for girls or boys by selecting the gender and "most popular" from the drop down menu on the green bar in the center of the page.
Increasingly independent, your child will be spending more time alone with friends. It's important to give them space to interact and sort out any arguments without interference (unless you think things are getting too serious.) When she's with friends they'll usually be absorbed into their own world of chatter and play, but you can occasionally provide them with structured activities like craft kits or board games.
When it's just you and your child playing, she'll enjoy talking and asking you questions, practicing sports activities and cooking. Pursue her interests together and you could both learn something! You might like to embark on a new hobby or craft together such as knitting, gardening or making robots.
She still needs lots of encouragement and may become easily frustrated with school work or projects. Let her know that nobody's perfect and that she'll learn with patience and practice. Share some examples of things that were difficult for you, before you practiced and improved your skills.
