For the chatterbox…
A fun, quirky addition to the family mug collection, this is a cool toy that’ll keep any 12 year old boy entertained with every hot drink. He gets to record – and re-record – personal messages that the mug will repeat after every sip! Don’t worry, the messages are only 7 seconds long, so it can’t get too annoying.
Football will never be the same!
The interactive toy that everyone’s talking about, the Smart Ball is a great gift for any young football obsessive. It lights up with every touch, while the built-in microphone calls out his keepy-uppy score – and if he wants a normal kick about, it can be easily transformed into a normal ball. Parents are going to need a lot of patience getting him back in the house!
A game for the ages, Pac Man was born in the retro arcade, but has lived to tell the tale! Educate the 12 year old in classic gaming with this super convenient portable gadget, which comes on a handy keyring. It’s still the old game we all know and love – collect the dots, but avoid the ghosts! The only issue is going to be keeping Dad’s hands off it…
A shootout from the future…
The best way for any Western-obsessed 12 year old boy to live out his Clint Eastwood fantasies, this target base offers hours of futuristic fun. Shoot soft foam darts at the floating styrofoam balls, which can be adjusted in height for added difficulty! Before you know it, he’ll be asking for an Eastwood-style poncho.
To step up his fashion game
Once upon a time, caps were just for keeping the sun out of your eyes, until they became so much more. With a strip of blue LED lights around its peak, this revolutionises fashion for the young tweens! Soon enough, he’ll be the talk of the classroom…
A fun and informative toy, perfect for a 12 year old interested in engineering. From a crocodile to a digging excavator, this 230 piece set includes a vast range of animals and machines to construct, and each has its own unique movement! Running on solar power and water, he’ll also gain a valuable lesson in sustainable energy.
A pocketful of fun!
Perfect for a trip to the beach or the local park, this soft silicone disc folds up easily into your pocket. It’s squishy and easy to catch, making it ideal for any 12 year old boy, no matter how sporty he is! Best of all, it can fly up to 40 metres – so maybe don’t use it in the garden…
This is a t-shirt that no 12 year old boy will ever get bored of, because he can keep changing it to his own liking! With the included UV keyring, he let his creativity run wild on the t-shirt’s glow canvas panel – each drawing fades after 5 minutes, so this present favours the indecisive. You won’t get this at Topman!
For any budding engineer, this mesmerising gift will fuel their interest even further! With a short build time and a set of simple instructions, it won’t be long until he’s watching the marbles descend down the zig-zag in perpetual motion. A toy so cool that it’s won an award, this marble run will keep him impressed for days on end.
With its unique blend of badminton and football, the UKick provides hours of unpredictable, exciting fun. He’ll be hooked trying to keep it in the air with any trick or flick he can muster – and with an adjustable, weighted base, he can tailor the difficulty to his liking. Remember, handballs are still not allowed!

I went to a restaurant with a sign that said they served breakfast at any time. So I ordered scrambled eggs during the Renaissance.
