Nine year olds are clever little fellows and have lots of interests. Great presents for 9 year old boys are remote controlled cars or flying objects, science construction kits, anything that shoots, or outdoor gear. Pranks will appeal to that 9 year old sense of fun. Or get them a great book ideally about football.
