The Best Gifts For 8-Year-Olds

From cool science kits and remote-controlled planes to an updated version of the classic game of Simon, the 8-year-old on your list is ready for some fun. We”ve rounded up our favorite finds for these tots who teeter on the edge of little-kid play and big-kid happenings. Check it out!

You”ve never seen Lego play quite like this. Lego Fusion Town Master ($35) fuses brick building and iPad play. Kids first build their own town with the two-dimensional bricks, and then use the Fusion app (which can read the bricks) to photograph their collection and play with their new town in app mode. Once on the iPad, they can continue building their town and bring it to life as the minifigures enjoy their time in town.

Get these while you can! Last year Crazy Lights Magic Water Speakers ($43) hit the tail end of the holiday shopping season, and only a lucky few were able to purchase them in time for the holiday. This year, they”re available earlier in the season, and if the squeals of excitement I witnessed as a group of tween girls came upon them is any indication, they”re a guaranteed hit. Simply fill the speakers with water; plug them in to your computer, phone, or anything else with a USB port; and watch as the colors and bubbles move to the beat of your kids” favorite tunes.

With the introduction of the new Star Wars Rebels show came a new line of Lego sets, including Star Wars Rebels the Ghost ($90). The set includes two cockpits, two spring-loaded shooters, and ejecting escape pods.

The Hot Wheels brand moves off the track and into the air with its first-ever flying toy. The Hot Wheels RC Street Hawk ($60) is battery-operated and flies up to 200 feet in the air. Light as a feather, it operates just like a remote-control car but does so off the ground! It truly is the coolest car around.

Inspired by all of the images on Pinterest, Crayola”s Meltdown Art Set ($14) comes with materials for three melting crayon projects that simply need a hairdryer to work.

Last year, Disney Infinity was one of our must-have items of the holiday season. The idea of playing an interactive video game where you can actually be your favorite Disney characters made it an instant hit — not to mention the toy box feature where characters from different Disney films can interact. This year Disney is expanding the line to include Marvel Superheroes ($75), such as Hulk, Captain America, and Thor. The new characters are compatible with Disney Infinity 2.0, an upgrade to the previous system, meaning that for the first time ever, Captain America can team up with Buzz Lightyear for some fun.

If you anticipate your child falling in love with the Harry Potter series, this Harry Potter Hardcover Boxed Set ($137) has everything you”ll need for them to work their way through the series.

Similar to another line of shooters with foam pieces, BOOMco. Rapid Madness Blaster ($50) is an air-powered (read: no batteries) blaster that fires 20 darts in seconds. The darts have reusable Smart Stick material that allow them to attach from targets.

Mom and Dad spent plenty of afternoons playing Simon, and now their kiddos can get in on the fun — in a modern way, of course! Simon Swipe ($22) is all the fun of the original but with a swiping motion (more like an iPad movement than a push).

Based on the hotel”s most famous resident, the Eloise Suite Package (starting at $1,395 per night) includes luxurious accommodations in the Betsey Johnson-decorated room, an Eloise-inspired tea at The Palm Court in the hotel, an Eloise bathrobe, $100 to spend at the Eloise gift shop, a framed photo of your child in the room, an Eloise book, and the assistance of a dedicated Eloise ambassador during your stay.
