Making it to the very top of the top 10 toys for boys 2016 – Maisto R/C Rock Crawler.

I have written about dozens of cool RC cars, but the Rock Crawler is a personal favorite. Resembling a monster truck, this rugged RC must-have switches between two gears with two motors. The tough-tread tires are all-terrain for off-road rides.

2. Razor A Kick Scooter

Ages: 5 and up

The Razor A Kick Scooter is a many-time returning favorite among the best toys for boys – again on the list in 2016.

According to Razor, this classic scooter is the kick-powered original that started it all. I love that there are so many different colors, like blue, pink, and green in vibrant, shiny tones. Made from aircraft-grade aluminum with sleek inline wheels.

3. Air Hogs Remote Control Boomerang

Ages: 8 and up

And hitting 3rd on the list – Air Hogs Remote Control Boomerang.

Nicknamed the 360 Hoverblade, this addition to the Air Hogs line-up can be tossed, thrown, flown, and spun…by hand, by controller, or off the ground. Called an RC boomerang, the Hoverblade comes back at an unbelievable, but still catchable, speed.

4. Nerf Zombie Strike Doominator Blaster

Ages: 8 and up

Also managing a place among the best toys for boys spring and summer 2016 – Nerf Zombie Strike Doominator Blaster.

I love the name of this blaster—Doominator, combining doom and dominate. Oh yes! For those zombie vs. human games in the backyard, this NERF must-have annihilates the imagined undead with 24 strong foam darts in 4 flip-up, quick-reload barrels.

5. WowWee MiP Robot Rev Toy

Ages: 8 to 15

A favorite at Christmas, and a continuing favorite into the spring and summer of 2016 – WowWee MiP Robot Rev Toy is also one of the top boys’ toys.

REV is a favorite because it combines modern technologies with classic RC action. There are two cars included, red/black and white/blue, each speeding along at app-determined paces. Racers use mobile devices to power their cars, racing against tough computer opponents.

7. LEGO Star Wars TIE Advanced Prototype (75082)

Ages: 7 to 12

LEGO Star Wars TIE Advanced Prototype is another very hot seller (rightly so) among boys toys this year.

Star Wars Rebels is a new television series that kids are loving. So much so that the TIE Advanced Prototype is a replica of the spaceship from the cartoon. This 355-brick set-up includes folding wings, spring-loaded shooters, and light sabers.

8. Nerf Sports Aero Howler Football

Ages: 6 and up

The Nerf Sports Aero Howler Footballd also makes its way to the list of the top ten boys’ toys for 2016.

NERF took a break from battling blasters to focus on sporty fun. This football, dubbed the Howler, features a strong, foam composition with a long-distance tail to help it soar. The grip allows for truer throws, and it howls mid-air.

9. Little Tikes Gas ‘n Go Mower

Ages: 18 months to 5 years

Next up – Little Tikes Gas ‘n Go Mower.

In my experience, kids are little parrots, mimicking what we do. That includes the outdoor chores that adults find dull. The Little Tikes mower mimics the real deal, but this is tons more fun. Includes pop-up beads and mechanical sounds.

10. Nerf Super Soaker Flashblast Blaster

Ages: 6 and up

One of my personal favorites is the final pick among the best toys for boys 2016 – Nerf Super Soaker Flashblast Blaster.

Super Soakers are NERF’s answer to the question of summertime blasters. The compact design is great for quick, sneaky attacks, and the trigger has two modes—single-fire action or nonstop streams. Almost 4 ounces of water and 29-feet firepower distance.
