So cool! Meccano Meccanoid 2.0 arrives as the 2nd of the best educational toys for 10 year olds this year.

I love Wall-E and all things robotic, so the Meccanoid is one that I am a mega fan of. There are three interactive, innovative methods to programming and building this 2-foot tall robot. He knows over 3000 phrases, but he learns his builder’s voice and communicates and interacts in response.

A returning favorite – OWI 14-in-1 Solar Robot comes in next on the list.

One of my favorites from the past few years of science toys. The Solar Robot transforms with 14 rebuilds, all with solar panels for sunshine power. There are two building levels, beginner and advanced—both with their perks and instructions.

There are 105 LEGO bricks, some simple and classic, others made into wheels, axles, and gears. Perfect for arranging and rebuilding over 16 awesome projects with real-working parts.

Hitting the 5th spot among the top ten year olds’ educational toys this year – ROBOTIS Dream Level 1.

Robots, robots, and more robots! This is the future of awesome science for kiddos. Dream Level One is a buildable robot in basic terms. This would be great for a homeschool science curriculum, as it includes a 12-chapter workbook with challenges and hands-on building projects. Hones logic and problem-solving skills.

Probably not my personal favorite, but regardless of that ( 🙂 ), SmartLab Squishy Human Body is a top pick among educational toys for 10-year-old boys and girls.

Squishy, squeezable, and kinda gross. This toy is a pint-sized replica of the human body, and kids learn more about our anatomy, both inside and out, through squishy, careful dissection. From bones, to nerves, and internal organs, they’re diggin’ it.

Hitting 9th on the list – 4M Crystal Growing Kit.

I went through a phase where I was obsessed with geodes when I was a kid. It lasted a few months, but in that time, I collected over a dozen crystal-riddled rocks. For youngsters who, like me, love the shimmery beauty of nature, this setup allows them to grow colorful crystals on stands. Then encase and shine light through them.

Another “eeeeeeuw” toy makes it as the final pick of the 2017 top ten educational toys for ten year olds.

Ooey, gooey, and sometimes icky. The Get Slimed! kit comes with all of the trimmings to make wriggly, icky, jiggly worms, and a perfect batch of kinda-green, sometimes glittery, slime. Lovin’ the part where kids can make rainbow-colored “worm eggs!”
