LEGO Minecraft– This is collaboration between one of the most successful games of all time, LEGO, and today’s most popular indie video game, Minecraft. This game brings the building and the creative thinking from the virtual world into the physical one, and it is no doubt a favourite game for boys of all ages. And alongside the original game, you can also complete the LEGO Minecraft world with the two other sets, The Nether and The Village.
Zoomer – Zoomer is the perfect pet for your kid – it is just like a real puppy without the mess and the responsibility! The virtual puppy can learn new tricks – sit, lay down, roll-over, shake a paw, and even speak. He understands commands in English, French and Spanish. The best thing about it is that it is not only entertaining, but very educational, too.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shellraiser – Every little boy loves Ninja Turtles and this is the ultimate Ninja Turtles game. It contains the turtles’ super assault vehicle, the Shellraiser which besides transporting your heroes to their battle has a rooftop Blasting Bazooka Launcher that will sweep the streets and the sewers of all the enemies! However, the action figures are sold separately.
Syma Helicopter Blue – Your boy will spend all his free time flying this 3-channel mini RC helicopter. It is one of the most stable and durable helicopters for beginners on the market, especially for the price of $21.25, so could be perfect addition to the Christmas gifts for boys list. The vehicle has the latest gyro system and a full-function trim control with three full channels – up, down, left, right, forward and backward.
Revell B17G Flying Fortress – This is a 1:48 exact model of the famous World War 2 aircraft, the B-17. The assembly kit has detailed interior, gunner stations, cockpit, landing gear, and so on. The classic bomber model contains 148 parts, all painted in silver and black. Of course, assembling them is not an easy task – it requires moderate skills, careful attention to detail, and of course, patience, so it’s recommended for boys aged 10 years and up.
Christmas gifts for boys should not always be expensive, high-tech and flashy. Actual toys and games are always better than a video game, aren’t they?
