What do you get for someone who is 10 years old? They’ve reached double digits and they are quite grown-up in some ways. Brands matter.
Safety is still important – be careful of bicycles, kites and similar toys unless the child has a safe place to use them away from traffic and other hazards. Make sure sport equipment is well-made. Consider the child’s attitude, or check with parents, before giving toys that use mains electricity.
Suggestions: These children are still between children’s toys and more grown-up gifts. Books, puzzles and novelty gadgets are fairly safe – or check to see if they have any special interests, collections or musical interests. If you know the child well, you could try giving something unusual to try to spark a new interest.
