The Big Kids

By this age, they may be the oldest in the elementary school. The fundamentals of their reading and math are established, empowering them to continue to grow academically. They have a concrete sense of history and can visualize the future.

There is a wide range of maturity in this age group - physically and emotionally. Their friends are increasingly more important and they are relying on outside sources for information. They are developing a sense of consequences and personal responsibility. Be gentle with your comments because their self-esteem is taking hits from their own internal messaging and from peer pressure.

Don't be fooled into thinking that they don't need parents and that "none of their friends' parents" are looking in on them! They are still children learning to spread their wings and take risks - all under your watchful eye, with a safety net for mistakes.

Great Gift Ideas:

  • You Got This!
  • Pandemic Cooperative Game
  • Goodnight Rebel Girl Book
  • Journals and Pens

Beyond the Blackboard has the best gifts for 9 and 10 year-old boys and girls. If your child is a bit less mature than their peers - or perhaps more mature - check out our collections for 7 and 8 year-olds, and 11 and 12 year-olds, too.

Nine and 10 year-old children are faced with more challenging academics at school. Thankfully, they also have better attention spans! Nine and 10 year-olds may begin to save their own money to purchase items they want.

As your children get older, you may feel that gift shopping is more challenging. At Beyond the Blackboard, we always do our research. You might say we're professionals when it comes to shopping for 9 and 10 year-old boys and girls! The best toys for 9 and 10 year-olds allow them to have some independence. And of course this collection includes unicorns, because unicorns are awesome.
