The Tyco Terra Climber RC Vehicle arrives at #6 on the list.

The Terra Climber, admittedly, was a little scary the first time I saw it. But now, after researching all of the awesome features, I think this RC monster is oh-so cool. Kids can clear indoor or outdoor obstacles on all terrains with spike-style wheels for rough and tumble drivin’ action.

Also managing a place among the best eight year-old boys’ toys is a returning favorite with a special twist – Sphero Special Edition BB-8 App-Enabled Droid, complete with force band.

I have yet to see the entirety of the new Star Wars movie. But judging from BB-8, I really need to step up my A game and finish it. This cool rollin’ robot is smartphone and tablet compatible with an interactive, high-intelligence app that brings its unique personality to life.

Another super-cool RC favorite makes it to the “best of” toys list for 8 year old boys – sure to be a hit for Christmas 2017 – Air Hogs Thunder Trax RC Vehicle.

One of my favorites. Thunder Trax is an all-terrain RC. And I do mean ALL terrain. This vehicle shifts from a tank with thick, rollin’ wheels, to a boat with flippers. The precise radio signals are cleared for long-range missions. Operates on either batteries or a charge on the controller.

But Razor has revamped the original concept of a Hoverboard, making it MUCH safer and family-friendly. Features include self-balancing tech and 60-minutes of constant riding at a max 8 miles-per-hour.

And – the final item on the 2017 list of the top ten toys for eight year old boys — Project Mc2 Way to Glow Science.

Way to Glow, Science! I love the play on words. You know…glow instead of go. Wink, wink. But seriously, this set is awesome because glow-in-the-dark stuff is uber-cool. Kids can make atoms that glow in rainbow colors under an included black light. Plus, there are glow-in-the-dark stickers for bedroom décor.
