When looking at gifts for 8 to 11 years you need to look at things that will keep them busy and stop them getting bored and every single one of these gifts fits that theme.

K’nex have some fantastic ranges to suit any interest and we love both Mighty Makers and the new fun fair rides. The sets are great to build and even better to play with afterward. The K’nex Electric Inferno roller coaster has 639 pieces and is suitable for ages 9 plus. The Mighty Makers Directors Cut is 308 pieces and suitable for ages 7 plus. It allows you to create your own films and even comes with a buildable phone holder to record the action.


Rubik’s Spark is a great gift for ages 8 plus that features 6 different games for you to play. The games each come with 25 levels that will test Memory, Speed, Dexterity & Logic. Rubik’s spark is played by tilting and turning the cube.

Available in a variety of sets including the Hogwarts great hall and astronomy tower as well as Diagon Alley and the Hogwarts express. They all look absolutely amazing and would be the perfect gift for the geek in your life.

With the new Star Wars film being released just before Christmas I can imagine that all of the Star Wars branded Lego will go down well and with a selection of sets from The Force Awakens and rogue One available now it is an ideal time to grab some to put under the tree.

To create the bugs you just need to squeeze the EwwGoo into the chamber of the Fright Factory, and turn the crank. The ultraviolet light will dry the gel within minutes creating aa toy that your kids can play with.
