Toys for 8 Year Olds
RECOMMENDED WOODEN BUILDING BLOCK SETS FOR 8 YEAR OLDS.
8 year olds enjoy playing with wooden building blocks and can build amazing structures. They make a great gift for an 8 year old boy or girl. They are mastering the ability to make a stable tower or structure, and now work on problem solving skills-how to make a better structure, a more elaborate structure, a bigger, better, “cooler” structure than they have previously built. They are also beginning to be competitive in their block play. They enjoy contests with their friends to see who can build the tallest block tower. Or they just compete against themselves, seeing if they can “best” their last creation. They like to play in groups or alone. They utilize other toys in their block play,cars or actions figures, etc. They will build up a super structure and knock it down with a nerf gun or a ball. They like to build large structures, so they need lots of blocks in a variety of sizes and lengths and creative shapes. A wooden block set of at least 100-120 blocks or more would be appropriate. Also as they get older they will want a larger number of blocks. Consider adding some extra of your favorite individual blocks to your set. Combine a traditional set with a “Special Block Set”, or “Whimsical Window Set”. Wooden blocks make great gifts for 8 year olds.
