Love this! The first pick among the top 10 educational toys for 9 year olds for 2017 is the Snap Circuits Arcade.

The arcade version of Snap Circuits is kinda, maybe, perhaps even better than the classic edition. And, for the record, the classic is awesome. So this version is double awesome. There are over 30 snap-together circuits to build interactive games.

Third up – Thames and Kosmos Chemistry C500.

Admittedly, chemistry was a weak subject for me, but I always had a fascination with the periodic table. For little science lovers, the Chem C500 is an introduction to chemistry with 28 experiments, like how to make fizz and foam. Kiddos learn about basic chemical reactions with a 48-page guide.

I can personally attest to how interesting this one is – 4M Crystal Growing Experimental Kit also makes its place among the top 9-year-old kids’ educational toys for 2017 and into 2017.

One of my fondest memories as a kid involves touring an old cavern with my family. We learned so much about crystals, and I was obsessed with geodes for months afterwards. This setup lets science-lovin’ youngsters grow their own crystals.

Who doesn’t love to see things up (very) close? Educational Insights Nancy B’s Science Club Microscope and Activity Journal is another worthy addition to the top 9 year old kids’ educational toys.

For little scientists-to-be, this microscope is a first for beginners. There are several levels of magnification, a light for a full-view “zoom in,” and pre-loaded slides for examination and exploration. Other accessories include blank slides, specimen tubes, and scientist must-haves, like tweezers, dabbers, and other useful tools. Great for homeschools!

Next – Think Fun Laser Maze.

Logic Game is a…well, game of logic. Kids use quick-thinking and problem-solving skills to complete difficult challenges with real lasers, sequences, observation, and keen reasoning. There are 60 puzzles, ranging from beginner to advanced. And each one uses logical movement. I would compare this game to chess, but with lasers.

The 4M 3-Dimensional Glow-In-The-Dark Solar System also makes a big hit as a favorite educational toy for kids age 9.

Definitely my all-time favorite science toy on here. This glow-in-the-dark setup is a buildable solar system, complete with snap-together planets, lots-a glow-in-the-dark paints, and a hanging frame for bedroom ceilings. Of course, assembly takes patience, but detailed instructions are included.

Remote Control Machines says it all. These buildable RC machines are made from a bunch of snap-together elements, complete with miniature motors for “get up and go” action. Make an antique car, robotic claw, foldable truck. bulldozer, and real-working crane.

Eeeeeeuw! Scientific Explorer Disgusting Science is the final pick among the 2017 top ten toys for nine year olds.

We have loads of gross stuff growing on us at all times. But most of what is on our bodies, we never see. This setup teaches kids about all of the microscopic stuff on their feet, between their fingers, in their nose, and in their bodies. Includes awesome, icky experiments.
