Top Cool Christmas Gifts for a Happy 8-Year Old Boy or Girl

Santa’s sleigh is just around the corner. And, that means we are in the market for some top cool Christmas gifts for a happy 8-year-old boy or girl.

My 8-year-old friends let you know well ahead of time what their favorite gifts are. Some children want the latest games such as Cadoo or Cariboo. Others have their heart set on a bicycle with training wheels and headlights.

One favorite gift is a remote controlled dinosaur that walks across the floor, swaying his head from side to side. Two others are a stone polishing kit and a backyard tent.

Some 8-year-olds want a snazzy watch that lights up in the dark or a glittery golden shoulder strap bag that is all the rage.

For now though, let us take a look at a few great gifts to thrill your favorite 8-year old.

Flying Bee – You have probably heard of the “Bee Movie” by now. Well, here is the next best thing. It is the flying bee. This remote controlled bee soars and swoops and flies. You can fly it indoors or outdoors. The 16 inch wingspan helps it dip, soar and flutter. It is crash resistant and runs on batteries.

Mystery Gift – The mystery gift is a big time favorite of 8-year-olds. Why? Because it is a big box that is filled with surprise little gifts. The little gifts are individually wrapped. They may include wind up cars, a coloring book and crayons, a bubble-blowing kit, a light-up tiara or crown, an activity book or a magic set. There might also be larger gifts such as a sailboat, a portable radio, a puzzle or a nifty watch.

Sleepover Kit – What 8-year-old girl can resist this fabulous sleepover kit. Even if all her sleepovers are at home, she can invite friends over and let them share this kit with her. It includes a warm, cozy sleeping bag and pillow, a cosmetics bag with a comb and brush, a toothbrush, nail polish, hair ribbons, clips and combs, and a drinking mug and thermos. All this fits nicely into a colorful carrying bag.

Name Scroll on a Painting – Every 8-year-old loves his or her first name. That is one reason why this name scroll is such a hit. The first name and its meaning stand out against the background of a painting. Included are famous people with that name. The painting may be of a kitten, a dog, horses, flowers, or a crest. This is a treasured gift that is ready for framing.

Red Robot – Who could not fall in love with a little red robot who follows you around all day on his 4 crab-like legs. You control him with a remote control. He has 3 different modes. The “shy” mode, the “more active” mode, and the “very active” mode which has him investigating his space and peering through open doorways as well as reacting to sights, sounds and touch.

Well that is about it. I hope you liked these top cool Christmas gifts for a happy 8-year-old boy or girl. Remember that your 8-year-old will love whatever you get him or her. So, keep warm and have a very merry Christmas.
