1. LEGO Minecraft Micro World – The End (21107)


LEGO Minecraft Micro World – The End 21107

At the top of top 10 toys for 10 year old boys in 2014 is LEGO Minecraft Micro World – The End.

Enter the desolate Micro World of “The End.”

What stands out to me the most about this Minecraft set is that while it is a rather dark and desolate world, it is nevertheless quite a unique and creative set that goes along with the rest of the LEGO Minecraft series.

This particular set in the series has the ability to be put together in one major setting, or broken apart into 4 separate sections. No matter which way it is divided, it is a lightless and rather hopeless floating world – Included is the Ender Dragon, 4 other Micro characters – a total of 440 pieces in the set.

(As a note – the fact that this is a “micro” set has been a surprise to some consumers. It might be a good idea to know ahead of time that this series has smaller pieces and a bit of a different angle to it than other sets from LEGO.)

2. Nerf N-Strike Elite Strong Arm


Nerf N-Strike Elite Strong Arm

Next up – #2 of the 10 best toys for 10 year old boys this year – Nerf N-Strike Elite Strong Arm.

While this is a sort of “innocent” looking NERF blaster, there is more to it than might at first meet the eye.

It has the ability to rapid-fire (by holding down the trigger and pump on the slide at the same time, it can be reloaded pretty quickly and easily so that battling is not delayed too long, and it even has a flip-up sight to make hitting targets easier.

While other blasters have more features and hold more ammo, my take on this one is that it is still pretty darned advanced and holds a much lower price than some alternatives.

3. LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (21108)


LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 21108

Another LEGO set makes the list this year – Ghostbusters Ecto-1.

Created for kids age 10 and older, I actually believe that this particular LEGO set will also be popular with grown-up collectors due to the fact that the movie is a popular one with my generation (I show my age on this!). In other words, us old folks will love it too because there are so many of us that absolutely love that corny, hilarious movie with some of the most colorful characters in movie history.

The set includes more than 500 pieces total, and includes the Ecto-1 ghostbusting vehicle, the 4 main characters from the story (the ghostbusters themselves) along with their proton packs and other equipment needed to do the job.

Funny stuff. :)

4. Maisto Rock Crawler R/C Vehicle


Maisto R/C Rock Crawler (Colors May Vary)

At #4 on the list – Maisto Rock Crawler Remote Control Vehicle.

There may be nothing better in the whole wide world than a remote control vehicle like this – pretty sweet.

One of the first things that I noticed is that it has maintained its popularity level – consistently getting good reviews – for about two years running now.

It is built for just about any kind of terrain – the suspension, tires and powerful and versatile motor allow it to climb over and get through just about anything (within limits of course). It also has a tri-channel transmitter/controller that allows for three of these nifty vehicles to be run at the same time.

5. Ultra Stomp Rocket


Ultra Stomp Rocket

Also a worthy addition to the best ten year old boys’ toys this year is the Ultra Stomp Rocket.

Many, many, many kids and parents have come across Stomp Rockets (including myself), and it is not a wonder to me that they are such a popular toy.

Like the Junior version, this toy consists of rockets (with soft tops so as not to be dangerous or cause damage), a launcher and a pad to stomp on to get the rockets to shoot high up into the air.

The only difference with this set seems to be that it is designed to get the rockets to soar higher and/or shoot a further distance.

Either set is fun, but this one appears to be geared more closely to a bit of an older age range.

6. LEGO Movie Emmet’s Construct-o-Mech Set (70814)


LEGO Movie 70814 Emmet”s Construct-o-Mech Building Set

And yet another LEGO set makes the list – the LEGO Movie Emmet’s Construct-o-Mech Set.

When I saw the picture for this set my first thought was, “Hold on – is this a Transformer?!” But alas it is not.

Construct-o-Mech is a set that kids build to help to defeat the evil Lord Business once and for all. It includes some nifty features such as a cockpit that opens up, an excavating arm and cement mixers.

And perhaps best of all – Emmet gets to drive the massive Mech to do the job. :)

7. Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 Set


Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 Kit

Coming in at #7 among the top 10 toys for boys 10 years old – Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 Kit.

I cannot say enough good things about this kit for kids – and it does my heart good to see it continue a high level of popularity year after year.

Kids get all of the simple electronics bits and pieces to put together their own fun gadgets (like a fan, doorbell and some other cool stuff) – and at the same time learn hands-on about how electronics works safely and simply.

8. LEGO The DeLorean Time Machine (21103)


LEGO 21103 The DeLorean Time Machine Building Set

And – #8: LEGO The DeLorean Time Machine.

Here is a set that has taken off in popularity over the past several months, and I suspect that it is a set that is here to stay (or at least I hope it is).

The set (obviously) includes all of the pieces and parts to build the DeLorean but it also comes with both Marty and “Doc” minifigures. It is well known for its attention to detail in the design – even with the folding “gull wing” doors on the car.

There is a lot more to this set too – and worth taking a look at it if you are even vaguely interested.

9. Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Voyager Class Autobot Hound


Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Voyager Class Autobot Hound Figure

With the release of this summer’s new Transformers movie comes another toy to make the lineup of best toys for 10 year old boys in 2014 – Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Voyager Class Autobot Hound.

For fans of the movie “…Age of Extinction” and for Transformers fans in general, this character appears to be the most popular (at this writing) for this particular age group.

Hound is an Autobot Transformer that is truly a “multi-tasker” – in fact he prides himself on being able to do the job of ten or more Transformers.

As a robot, he is a formidable fighter, being manned with plenty of arms – and also protected with practically unpenetratable armor. As a combat vehicle he also is quite a force to be reckoned with.

10. Nerf Super Soaker Freezefire Blaster


Nerf Super Soaker Freezefire Blaster

And – last but not least on the list – Nerf Super Soaker Freezefire Blaster.

When I discovered the reason for the name of this summertime blaster, I had to laugh.

One of my favorite features of water blasters to date – this one can hold ice cubes so that when water is added to it – and of course when it blasts opponents – it can be quite a shocking experience!

And – if you or your kids have the “hot weather blues,” this might be a good way to have some family fun and cool each other off.
