Brilliant Toys And Games For Seven Year Olds
Are you looking for a small game that is perfect for a schoolfriend gift? Searching for a main present? Trying to find an educational yet fun idea? Then do read on as I have some great ideas, all of which are rated highly by my own almost seven year old.
Chess Teacher – Learn To Play The Game. RRP £16.97
We love a good game here in our house, and do also love giving games away as gifts for birthdays and at Christmas. And what better game than chess? however, explaining the concepts can be quite difficult, especially to younger players.
But worry no more, as this Chess Teacher game shows you how to play with a great visual aid as you play. Aimed at age 6+, it means that even younger family members can learn the game as they play. Each large named piece shows how it moves with a small diagram. So it is a really clever aid to learning.
This Or That Game. RRP £9.95
Looking for a fun game the whole family can play along with? The This Or That Game has 200 questions, and the answers will baffle most players. It is even touted as a guessing game, so even younger players have a sporting chance. It is aimed at age 8+ – but my almost 7 year old thinks its a great game too!
Most people will only be able to guess which of the two answers is the right one. And you may even learn something, who knows?
Hornit Mini – Bike & Scooter Horn. RRP £19.95
Christmas and birthdays are the perfect time to gift new bikes and scooters. And as well as a scooter, you definitely need a bell.
This Hornit Mini has 25 sounds and lots of different light settings, both constant and flashing. Sound effects include bells, sirens, hooters and a comical Olé trumpet music option that is Elizabeths favourite. It comes in 2 colour options, the one in the giveaway is red and blue rather than the pink and teal option in the picture above.
Zzopa Ball – RRP £9.95
Does your child love fast paced ball playing action? Then this next toy on the list could be perfect! The Zzopa ball can be bounced, thrown and spins on your finger. It is a fast ball and can be used to perform all kind of tricks.
It can be played with from age 3, but any age will get a lot of use from this versatile toy.
Mega Spin Gravity Yoyo – Light Up Yoyo – RRP £10.95
Talking of tricks, a yoyo is a brilliant idea for a child that wants to learn a cool new skill.
This Mega Spin Gravity yoyo comes back to your hand, lights up with colour changing LED lights and is the perfect size and shape for perfecting those performance level tricks. Please note the giveaway prize is a green rather than a red colour.
Factopia Book by Kate Hale – RRP £10.99
Lastly on this list of brilliant ideas for toys, book and games for seven year olds is the Factopia book. Every fact is connected, and you follow the trail of facts through the book.
Brilliantly written and illustrated, this book is packed with 400 facts sure to astound, amaze and delight. My almost 7 year old could not put it down!
