Frequently Asked Questions

What's best to buy an 8 year old for their birthday?

8 year old boys love learning and participating in the world around them. For a truly unique birthday gift why not get the Wall Climbing Super Car!

What should you buy an 8 year old boy?

Eight year old boys develop more complex cognitive skills and are able to keep their focus and attention for longer periods. Popular and engaging gift options for this age group are the 12 in 1 Solar Hydraulic Construction Kit and True Balance - 8 spinning Disc stack.

What are 8 year old boys into?

8 year old boys love to build and put together construction sets and still enjoy racing cars and flying airplanes. At this age, boys are still full of boundless energy for play.

How much sleep should an 8 year old get?

Whilst all children are different, it is recommended that an 8 year old boy gets between 9 to 12 hours of sleep a night. As they are fully in the swing of going to school now, research has shown that children who go to sleep before 9PM tend to get more sleep and sleep better at night.
