3. Maisto R/C Rock Crawler


Maisto R/C Rock Crawler (Colors May Vary)

A very worthy off-road vehicle enters into the list at #3 – Maisto R/C Rock Crawler.

I love this R/C vehicle!

It has an articulated suspension, tires to tackle even very rough terrain and double motors and low gearing for climbing.

The transmitter has 3 channels to enable 3 people to play at the same time with vehicles from Maisto.

4. LEGO Creator Treehouse (31010)


LEGO Creator Treehouse 31010 Toy Interlocking Building Sets

LEGO Creator Treehouse also manages its way to the best toys for boys age 8 in 2014.

I LOVE the LEGO Creator sets! Of all the releases, this is my favorite so far.

As is true with the others in this specific lineup of LEGO sets, it comes with all the pieces and instructions to create a few different creations.

There is a Lakeside hut, a barn – and of course, a treehouse! And not just any treehouse – there is a very cool fold-up ladder and trap door. Sweet!

6. Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 Kit


Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 Kit

A long-standing favorite among boys at or around 8 years old – Snap Circuits Jr. SC-100 Kit.

Coming from experience, I can tell you that this electronics circuitry set is pretty darned cool!

It comes with a board, circuits and some fun gadgets that kids can set up and create – and not just any gadgets, they’re the ones that move in fun ways and make some cool sounds.

And – kids get their hands and minds involved in the science of electronic circuitry, and they get to find out how simple and easy to understand it can be!

Razor A Kick Scooter (Blue)

Another “staple” in warm-weather outdoor toys for boys 8 years of age – Razor A Kick Scooter.

When kids get beyond the “toddler scooter” stage, this has become known as “the” scooter for kids to start with.

It has a price that is pretty easy for most people to handle and a structure that makes it safe, easy to maneuver and will last for years down the road.

Nerf Super Soaker Scatterblast Blaster

At #9 on the list – Nerf Super Soaker Scatterblast Blaster.

A water-pump blaster is pretty cool and fun to begin with, but this one has an additional fun feature – it blasts 5 streams of water at the same time, making it pretty much impossible for opponents to dodge the blast!

10. Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Voyager Class Autobot Hound


Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Voyager Class Autobot Hound Figure

The final item on the list of the top 10 toys for 8 year old boys this year – Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Voyager Class Autobot Hound.

Hound is one of the more competent among the Autobots.

While in robot mode, he is heavily armed and handles his enemies with skill and agility. In vehicle mode, he is still fully equipped for combat.

In short, this Transformer is one of the most entertaining to play with, and fans of the movie will probably want this toy for their collections.
