I take my gift guide making duties very seriously. I try to seek out things you might not have seen but that we’ve tested ourselves or know/trust someone who has. Not necessarily based on the published top toys of the year, but based on our own tough standards. There are tons of great ideas in our past gift guides so make sure to take a look at those!

This year I’m not focusing on ages since you know your kids best. So we’ll just do a few parts for this year and I’ll make some notes in the links on why I chose it!

2014 gift guide from All for the Boys - some really unique ideas here!

  1. Sphero – your kids might already be asking for this one. It’s an app controlled robotic ball (and there are a ton of great apps/games to go along with it). It lights up, spins across the ground or even water at the control of an app on your phone or other device. My boys have loved learning to code movements with it as well. Highly recommend!
  2. Ollie – Sphero’s “brother”  faster (up to 14mph) and a bit more rugged. You can’t go wrong with either. One of my boys likes Sphero the best and the other likes Ollie.
  3. Handheld digital microscope – who doesn’t want to see gross things magnified on their computer 😉 just make sure it works with your computer!
  4. Can You Imagine Pocket Laser Light Show is just what it sounds like – a laser light show of your own.
  5. Moluk – a rocking, climbing, stacking, rolling open ended toy. Fun in multiples too!
  6. Makey Makey –  a perfect gift for the makers in the family. Developed from a research project at MIT. Use your wildest imagination and turn everyday objects into touch pads and combine them with the internet!
  7. Tin Can Cable Car – assemble your own cable car.
  8. Mystery Minecraft Collectible Figures – these are tiny little collectibles for the Minecraft lover. Perfect stocking stuffer or add on.
