1. Maisto R/C Rock Crawler

The Maisto Rock Crawler hits the #1 spot of the top 10 toys for 8 year old boys in 2016.

The Rock Crawler, a favorite of mine, is the perfect RC car because it can go anywhere, seriously. The rough, rugged all-terrain wheels provide excellent traction for tumble rides, and there are two motors and two switch-shift gears for off-roading.

3. Nerf Sports Aero Howler Football

A returning favorite marks #3 of the best toys for 8 year old boys 2016 – Nerf Sports Aero Howler Football.

NERF has been known for their super soakers and blasters since the 90s, but this football might surpass those on the awesomeness scale. The Howler, named that because it howls when it’s thrown, has a long-distance tail and side grips.

4. Razor A5 LUX Scooter

Also one of the more fun and popular (returning favorite) on the list – Razor A5 LUX Scooter.

I dig the A5 Lux because it has a smooth ride for kids and adults up to 220 lbs. Cool beans! Kids will appreciate the grab-and-go qualities, like a low deck for easier, more powerful kickoffs, and a fold feature for convenient storage. Comes in either shiny red or blue.

A HUGE hit in the LEGO Star Wars lineup, and one of the best toys for 8 year old boys in 2016 – LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon.

8. Air Hogs Remote Control Boomerang

My personal favorite among the top toys for 8 year old boys this year – Air Hogs Remote Control Boomerang.

Nicknamed the Hoverblade, this RC toy flies, spins, and reaches skyward with the help of hands and a slide-side controller. When the controller button slides, it increases power to the Hoverblade, making it spin with wow-worthy speed and launch upwards.
