Have a ball!
This best-selling football contains a built-in speaker that calls out your Keepy Uppy score–all the way to 100! It also glows, lighting up with every touch or kick. Fancy a normal game of football? Just remove the sensor and screw the bung to the ball. Great for solo practicing in the back garden or playing in the park with friends!
Stand out from the crowd
This cool cap is this year’s must-have tween fashion accessory. Light up the night with the electric blue LED strip and four flash settings, controlled by a switch. The cap is made from comfortable cotton and features an adjustable velcro fastening, so it’s sure to fit just right. Perfect for fashion-forward party animals!
A brilliant twist
Know a tween boy with sneaky spy ambitions? He’s going to love Twistii. This innovative wrist torch features three light-up modes and 360-degree, hands-free rotation. It fits on wrists with an easy-to-use snap strap and charges via USB for up to three hours of light. What could be better for late-night, top-secret missions?! Shh… we’ve got to get to the refrigerator without waking up Dad!
Gift of the Year 2019!
Most tweens love a challenge, and this toy delivers! Follow the instructions to assemble the laser-cut sheets, add the electric motor, and 1-2 hours later, the run will be ready! Best of all, this cool contraption uses perpetual motion. The marbles ride the lift to the top, roll down the spiral, and bounce along the zig-zag track before starting all over again. Mesmerising, satisfying, and remarkably fun!
Pocket-sized alien invasion
New games might be flashy, but the classics are the classics for a reason! This mini arcade game measures in at just 9 cm x 7 cm, but don’t let its size fool you! It packs in an LCD screen, a large quickfire button, and all the original sounds and gameplay. Destroy alien invaders to reach the next level and achieve an all-time high score. Out of this world!
Boys will have endless fun with this glow-in-the-dark, 100% cotton T-shirt. Just use the UV keyring to draw or write on the canvas panel on the front of the shirt. But be quick, each design only lasts five minutes before fading away. Time for the next one! A brilliant gift for artists, designers, night owls and boys who like to stand out from the crowd!
Love playing with flying discs but hate the way they hurt your hand when you catch them? Sporty boys will understand the struggle! Fortunately, the Waboba Wingman is soft, pliable and painless to catch. It’s also foldable, so it fits perfectly into tween’s backpacks or pockets! Its aerodynamic design means it stays on course and flies up to 40 metres away. Cool and convenient outdoor fun!
Practice makes perfect
Pindaloo is fun to say and more fun to play! It’s simple: loop the ball from one side to the other. Oh, sorry, did we say it was simple?! Keep at it, and soon you’ll be a master! Pindaloo is made of durable, 100% recyclable plastic, and it’s designed for both indoor and outdoor play. It even makes a great pool game during the summer!
Sun, water, robots…?
Young engineers will have a blast using the 230 pieces in this awesome set to build 12 different mechanical models of animals and machines! There’s a crocodile, an ostrich, a digging excavator, and more! Each model performs a unique mechanical movement. Coolest of all, this kit is eco-friendly and battery-free –everything is totally powered by nature!
A feathery twist on an old classic. Keep UKick in the air with your feet and other body parts. Whatever you do, don’t let it touch the ground! Features adjustable weights, so you can make the game easier or more challenging, depending upon skill level. Provides hours of entertainment–the gift that keeps on giving!
