Looking for great toys for 9 year old boys? We've got you covered with lots of gift ideas to please any fourth grader.

At age 9, boys are in a tricky in-between phase: they're not little kids anymore, but they're also (thankfully!) not yet teenagers. At this stage they're able to handle more responsibilities with minimal adult supervision, and they're hungry for independence - but they're not too cool to enjoy a family game night!

9 year old boys also grow like beanpoles. So don't be surprised if they seem to get taller every time you see them - this is just the start of their growth spurts! Good news though: our toys are one-size-fits-all. You never need to worry about them getting too tall to enjoy remote-control cars or soccer balls.

Fourth grade is also the time when their friends start taking priority over everything and everyone else. Many 9 year old boys will have a strong desire to belong to a larger group of friends. If you do find yourself having to host a group of rowdy 9 year old boys at your house, you can't go wrong with outdoor activities, video games, or anything with 'robot' in the name. Just don't forget the snacks!

But fourth grade is also the time when math class gets harder (remember fractions? uh, neither do we!). Between math, peer pressure, and the daily grind of elementary school, 9 year old boys have a lot to deal with. At least they always manage to have a good sense of humor!
