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.

Ages: 7 – 15

One of my personal favorites – Klutz LEGO Crazy Action Contraptions also makes it as one of the best educational toys for 10 year old kids for 2016 and into 2017.

Crazy Contraptions. It sounds like something a mad scientist would love. So, of course, kiddos are all over this toy in 2016. 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.

Ages: 8 and up

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 2016-2017 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!”
