Gifts for 12 Year Old Boys

12 year old boys are on the cusp of their teenage years. As such, their interest in traditional toys for young kids begins to wane, while their passions for socialising, outdoor activities and techy gadgets take centre stage.

BrightMinds is committed to stocking engaging gifts for 12 year old boys. It can be difficult to know what they want, so here are a few options that will both inspire their continued development and delight their young minds.

Groovy Gadgets for Boys

Cool gadgets that harness the imagination will expand the boundaries of a 12 year old’s known world. Toys like RC cars and buildable robots are not only attractive for their novelty, but for the creative thinking that they inspire.

Gadgets for boys make great gifts for a 12 year old, especially when their originality exceeds the bounds of what a young boy has played with before. At BrightMinds, we’re constantly on the lookout for new and innovative kids gadgets that act as creative springboards for their growing imaginations.

Sports and Garden Games

Traditional garden games never go out of style, even as young kids become increasingly tech-savvy. As 12 year old boys mature physically, their desire for games that will utilise their growing strength makes garden games a real winner. 

BrightMinds stocks outdoor games that promote physical activity and engage growing children of all ages, encouraging them to play together. From garden rounders to pop up football goals, you’re sure to find some great garden games for boys in our range. 

Group Games for 12 Year Olds

Just like sports games, group events such as board games bring 12 year olds together. Playing an engaging game is a good way for pre-teens to develop their social skills and problem-solving abilities, sub-consciously teaching them about important dynamics that will serve them well throughout their lives.

‘Play time’ becomes less of a ritual as 12 year olds mature in managing their time and making decisions, so a group game that they can rouse others to play on their own initiative will provide good, beneficial fun!
