Second among the 2016 ten best toys for 8 year olds is the Razor A5 LUX Scooter.

Razor scooters are known for being the best because this brand came up with the original kick scooter all those decades ago. One of their newest, the A5 Lux, is their strongest with the smoothest ride. Convenient fold-up storage option.

3. Sphero Star Wars BB-8 App-Enabled Droid

Third in line on the list – Sphero Star Wars BB-8 App-Enabled Droid.

I have yet to see Star Wars The Force Awakens, but I hear great things about the movie. One of those being the BB-8—an all-new, interactive robot with wow-worthy intelligence. Ciao, R2D2. This replica listens, moves, learns, and responds.

4. Nerf Rebelle Guardian Crossbow Blaster

One for those backyard adventure gals – fourth among the best toys for 8 year olds this year is the Nerf Rebelle Guardian Crossbow Blaster.

One of my favorite collections, NERF Rebelle showed the world that girls could be as tough and battle-prepped as boys. RAWR! The Guardian Crossbow is a 6-dart blaster with rotating barrels, a pull-back string trigger, and long-distance fire-power of 75-feet.

5. Maisto R/C Rock Crawler

A huge hit and returning favorite toy for 8 year-old kiddos – Maisto RC Rock Crawler.

The Rock Crawler RC collection is one of my favorite from Maisto, but the original is the best to me. Simply a classic, this monster truck features two motors with switchable gears, rugged off-road-style tires, and a long-distance, tri-channel transmitter.

6. Nerf Sports Aero Howler Football

Awesome! The Nerf Sports Aero Howler Football also makes an appearance for the spring and summer 2016 “best of” toys for 8 year old kids.

NERF is known for awesome collections of blasters and super soakers, but their step into sports is just as cool. The Howler is a long-distance, foam football with grips on the sides and a “howling” element that makes noise mid-air.

8. ALEX Toys Spa Hair Chalk Salon

Tending to be a favorite with 8 year old girls this year – ALEX Toys Spa Hair Chalk Salon comes in next on the list.

I am all about hair chalk because it is the non-permanent method to getting chunky, bold streaks of color in your strands. Great for long locks, but pretty in short hair too! This set-up comes with 5 vibrant hair chalks.
