I like the noise-canceling feature because it’s really handy when trying to study or traveling by plane – and with how well constructed these headphones are your child will likely end up having a chance to do both while owning them. They also function as a headset for talking on the phone as well.

You see, these tea cups, pots, plates, creamer and sugar bowl are all made of food-grade recycled materials. This is awesome because it means you can actually drink from the set without worrying about hot water melting plastic or leeching and undesirable chemicals.
This tea set is wonderful. The toy items are sturdy while still being small enough for little hand’s to easily handle. It is safe to eat and drink from, washes easily, and quite resistant to scratches and blemishes. Some people aren’t aware that toy manufacturers now have to put little holes to prevent suffocation in any toy a young boy might jam in their mouth.

We’ve reviewed quite a few of these crates over the years – and our reviewer families have raved about their value and fun-factor.

Most board games for kids are competitive – and frankly there’s nothing wrong with that. Sometimes it’s nice for a family to have a game they work together to win, rather than against each other. This is particularly the case if you have a child that is CONSTANTLY getting beaten at games by an older sibling.
In Peaceable Kingdom, players work together as a team against the game, not each other. Besides creating a team, this allows for your 7 year old to learn to share, include others, and build up confidence for themselves and teammates. Each player is an owl that has gone out exploring at night, but now needs to get back home before the sun gets up. If all owls get home before the sun comes up, you are a winner!

We like the ‘W’ supports – they give more stability to the trampoline. The padded poles and enclosure net are well-made and help to keep your 7 year old is safe.

Replaying the videos or look at the funny photos created with the 21 frames creates hours of fun. The 1000mAh lithium rechargeable battery won’t cut the fun-time short because it lasts for 4-6 hours. Recharging takes 4-5 hours.
Hanging the camera around the child’s neck with the lanyard will help keep the camera from falling. If it does fall, don’t sweat it too much. The camera is made of soft silicone material that is safe against a child’s skin and is also shockproof should the camera fall.

- Folds down easily for quick storage.
- The different sizes of chalk and markers help develop fine motor skills.

- Great functionality in a small package.

- A lot cheaper than a Fitbit or Apple Watch!
- Heavy video usage can drain the battery in less than a day – not great if you rely on it primarily for a watch.
- Colorful design might seem childish to tween-aged children.
This smartwatch is really a mini-smartphone – without internet access or GPS. Why do I say that? It has 2 cameras, a microphone, games built-in, and can function as a pedometer. That’s a lot of features in a little package!
Parents and kids can download the pictures and videos to a PC where they can be kept or viewed by all. It’s very intuitive to use – and while not waterproof it is “splash proof” so the occasional spill or drop should brick the watch.

Turn the toy ON by pressing the button under Buzz’s arm. Deploy his wings and hear him say his famous catchphrases by hitting the big red button on his side. Fire his blaster for “laser” lights and authentic blaster sounds.
There’s a great mix of real-world features to go with the make-believe play this toy will instill in young boys. That’s what makes this on of the great toys for 7 year old boy – it’s ability to come alive for your child during play.
Codey Rocky is a GREAT toy for learning how to code. 7 year old programmers can use the associated app to get up and running quickly. There’s plenty to do with this robot without moving on from just app-based play. Your inquisitive boy can move and play with the robot really quickly in this mode.
Once the Codey Rocky is attached to your PC you can use an easy-to-learn block-based language to program the robot. If this is too limiting, you can also use the popular programming language python to expand your choice enormously. This should give your 7 year old years of play as your child moves up the programming skill curve.
- Easy to control and get into the air – but still helps to build patience.
- Flight control builds hand-eye coordination to keep the kite soaring in the air.
- You need to get outside to use this toy – and 7 year old boy will!
- You’ll need to help younger children with assembly.

Good kites are under-rated toys. There’s something hard-wired in most boys that makes he want to fly a kite on a warm, sunny day. This kite makes that easy enough for 7 year olds.
The design makes it surprisingly easy to get – and stay -airborne. It won’t entertain your children for multiple hours at a time, but they will continue to come back to this toy as they grow through the years. The colorful pattern will bring a smile to both you and your child’s face.

This package isn’t one toy – instead, you buy a one-time subscription and “crates” are delivered throughout the year. The Atlas Crate is different than most subscription crates – focused more on different places and cultures around the world.
As the crates come month after month and more projects are completed, your child will build their own adventure book. My child really loved building his own globe in one project. If your kid is interested in the people in the world and the places they come from, this gift will be appreciated.

- Workbooks aren’t cheap, and really are one-time-use only.

What type of toys should I buy my 7-year old son?
Seven-year-old boys are active. Bikes, scooters, trampolines, sports items, and other toys that focus on physical activity should please your active son. If he is more inclined to spend time indoors, then a toy that encourages physical activity in a fun way may inspire him to spend more time outdoors.
Some kids aren’t interested in sports but tend to prefer indoor activities. Video games, technical toys, and STEM-related educational toys may be excellent choices for them.
Generally, you can’t go wrong in buying your 7-year-old son a type of toy that stimulates his interests. A seven-year-old boy, however, is in the process of developing personality, his emotions, and his taste, and may not know what he likes yet. A toy could introduce him to a new interest. For example, he may enjoy the physical activity. Still, a book about his favorite superhero, a mystery board game, or construction or building toy may be a new interest he hasn’t considered. The opposite is also true. Your 7-year-old video gamer may be surprised at how much fun camping, scavenger hunt, or kicking a ball could be.
What is the best toy to get a 7-year-old boy for his birthday?

How significant is the effect of toys with sound?
At seven years old, sound toys may influence his development. Toys with sound are designed with age development stages in mind. These toys help stimulate the child. If the toy makes unfamiliar sounds or speaks unknown words, it may confuse your seven-year-old. Explain to him what kind of sound the toy is going to make or what the words may mean. It helps our child to familiarize himself with the new sounds and words and is a fun way to expand his language skills.
By explaining the words and sounds of the toy, you, as a parent, builds trust with your child. He understands that although you may give him an unfamiliar toy, it is safe to explore and discover what the toy may do. It also gives him confidence in experimenting and learning new skills.
From a parent’s perspective, you don’t want to teach your child sounds and words that contradict your household’s value system. Make sure that you approve of the words and the sounds the toy makes before exposing your seven-year-old son to it.
Why should I buy an age recommended toy for a seven-year-old?
Manufacturers produce toys designed to stimulate the growth and development of children according to their age group. As a parent, you noticed how your son’s development stage differed each year. Age-appropriate toys are safe for boys and girls in that age group and help with their progressive growth in essential skills.
Physical activity and language skills are essential milestones for seven-year-old boys. Therefore, toys that encourage these skills benefit your son and strengthens these skills while he is having fun. He may enjoy playing with toys for younger boys for a short while, but it won’t keep him occupied for long. It won’t stimulate him enough to prolong playing with the toy, and the toy won’t stimulate skill growth. A too advanced toy could discourage him from exploring and developing a skill because of the complexity of the toy. The best toy for 7-year-old boys is the toy that is challenging enough to inspire your son, but not so complicated that it leaves him discouraged.
