1 | LEGO Star Wars VIII BB-8 75187 Building Kit: A wish list for 8-year-old boys would not be complete without something LEGO right? So I figured we’d just start here! Star Wars is HUGE right now just like LEGO. So combine them & you have this super in demand LEGO set that all the boys are asking for! $$$
2 | Transformers: The Last Knight Autobot Sqweeks RC: Transformers are also super popular with this age group. And this little robot guy is super cool! He has robot, dance, and blaster modes with interactive lights, sounds & phrases. Watch an example HERE. $$
3 | Judy Blume’s Fudge Box Set: Yes, the long-lost gem from your childhood. A friend gifted this to my 8-year-old when she realized how much her own son was loving it. I wasn’t convinced but was quickly surprised to find that my own son can’t get enough of these books! A great selection for boys who are starting to read chapter books on their own! $
4 | Fisher-Price Imaginext DC Super Friends Batbot Xtreme: If you are looking for that one HUGE statement gift to make a big impression, then this is the one. It looks small in the image, but this thing is over 2 feet tall! It has voice changer effects, wings, a motorcycle, and projectile launchers. This one is definitely on the “It-List” for boys right now! $$$
5 | Sky Viper v2450FPV Streaming Drone with FPV Goggles: Drones are all the rage these days and the kiddos have noticed. This one seems to be the favorite for the time being probably because of the goggles that let you follow the drone’s point-of-view. It also has auto launch & land which makes it easy to use. This one is a little pricey in my opinion so it’s good to know they offer a cheaper version without all the bells & whistles as well. $$$
6 | Ben 10 Deluxe Omnitrix Role Play Watch: This will make your kiddo feel like a superhero! It’s a perfect complement for playing make-believe with lights, sounds + phrases just like in the show! This one is on my son’s wishlist! $
7 | LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 Video Game: This landed on my son’s birthday wishlist earlier this summer & wouldn’t be released in time for me to give it then. So this is already in my virtual cart for Christmas. Once again combining LEGO with the cool factor of Marvel Superheroes…how can you go wrong? This is available on most video game platforms + they also have a more expensive “Deluxe” edition if you want to go all out! $$
8 | Pokemon TCG: Necrozma Gx Mysterious Powers Tin: I’m going to be honest here…I don’t get this one. Not even a little bit. I don’t understand the draw of a bunch of cards in a tin + I have no clue why this one is the cool one to get (other than it just came out in October). But apparently, I just don’t “get it” and that means I’m a real parent now! Either way, my son desperately wants this & thinks it would be so awesome to show his friends! So take from that what you will… $
9 | Star Wars™ Glow In The Dark Long John Pajamas In Organic Cotton (#46123): This one is my favorite from the list! My son did receive this as a gift from Grandma on his birthday a few months ago. They are amazing quality, as everything from Hanna Andersson is, and he will.not.take them off! They are so super cute & they glow in the dark. Plus Star Wars… [PS: If SW isn’t your cup of tea, you can also find Frozen, Peanuts, Dr. Seuss, Justice League, Mickey Mouse, Disney Princess, Cars + Ferdinand.] I will tell you more about how Hanna Andersson PJ’s are a huge part of our family holiday tradition later! $
10 | Disney PIXAR Coco Skullectables – Land of Dead (5 Pack): You’re probably begun to notice the huge marketing campaign surrounding this new Coco movie that is coming out. I know I have. And it hasn’t missed the kiddos & their wish lists either. This cute set is all over the toy catalogs and my son circled it like 20 times. I also see that they are selling out pretty quickly. That being said, I think this might be one that will be cool for 3 months & then forgotten. So if you are a wannabe minimalist like me, then this might be one you can do without. Unless, of course, it’s your child’s fav! $
