At 10 years old, your child is experiencing middle childhood. These years are defined by growing independence from the family, developing relationships, and understanding responsibility. They may also start to experience some physical changes as their body is preparing for puberty. During this time, it's important that they feel confident in who they are and their abilities. Here are some of the best toys for 10-year-olds to guide them through this time that they will love.
Wooden 3D Puzzle
This wooden 3D puzzle is a great project that also becomes a practical object. Grow their skills by having them build this detailed 3D puzzle which at the end turns into a clock! Not only will they enjoy creating it, but they can show off their proud work around the house by placing this clock on a side table or mounting it on the wall.
Let their creativity explode with this coding and drawing robot. Insert a marker into the robot, and download the corresponding app on a smart device. Learn how to code and control the robot to draw whatever their imagination desires. If they're not ready to draw their own designs, there are pre-programmed designs to help them learn. iPad, tablet, or computer needed for this toy are not included.
Bill Nye VR Science Kit
This super fun science kit offers 30 different science projects while using virtual reality! With included virtual reality goggles, they can join Bill Nye in his lab to be a part of the experiments. All you need to supply is a smartphone and watch them explore the world of science with the 50-piece kit.
Coggy is a great brain teaser toy. It features 16 gears, all connected, and you need to work to match the patterns of the cards. It has four difficulty levels to learn along the way. It's a puzzle game, almost like a flat Rubik's cube. It will help improve their logic and critical thinking skills. And when not figuring out a puzzle, it can simply be used as a fidget toy.
Telestrations is a great game for playing with friends or family. Each player writes down a phrase and the player next to them has to draw it. The next player after that has to guess what the drawing is. And you repeat this cycle until everyone gets their own booklet back. Look back through all the guesses and enjoy tons of laughs as you look at people's drawings and guesses.
