Sure to be a holiday hit for 2016 (and into 2017) – the Hot Wheels AI Racing Starter Playset also falls in as one of the top toys for boys age 9 this year.

Of course this awesome, high-intelligence, robotic race track is from Hot Wheels.

With several modes to play, the virtual track displays imaginary obstacles that drivers use to rack up points and, ultimately, win against their opponent. Lots-a possibilities!

I am diggin’ the E90! Razor has amped up speed and function by 50-percent. This scooter is motorized to reach top speeds of 10 miles-per-hour with 80-90 minutes of continuous go. Requires a strong kick-off to get rollin’ before the motor kicks in. The retractable kickstand makes storage much easier.

A returning favorite also enters in as one of the best toys for boys age 9 this year.

Admittedly, I never saw the last Star Wars. Shameful…I know, but I think the toys that have come from that movie are awesome. Like this one, the BB-8—a rollin’ robot, compatible with smartphones and tablets. This bot follows your commands, embarking on galactic missions with a Star Wars app.

10. Project Mc2 Way to Glow Science

Price: $11.99
You save: $0.01 ( %)
7 new from $7.990 used

The final item on the 2016-2017 top 10 list of toys for 9 year old boys is Project Mc2 Way to Glow Science.

When I was a teenager, a group of my friends would pop open glow sticks, stick them in water bottles, and watch them glow.

Not the smartest idea.

This science set is much safer and much cooler because kids can create their own glowing powders. Includes glow-in-the-dark stickers and instructions.
