Awesome Indoor Toys for Active 10 Year Old Boys
Here’s a few cool indoor toys for active ten year old boys. A little something-something to keep them from climbing the walls and furniture on rainy days or hot summer days when you can’t go outside.
1. Over The Door Basketball Hoop
My son loves his over the door basketball hoop. He can’t help but play every single time he passes by it. This has been one of the most used indoor toys that we bought him. He can still be active in the house with this and it’s built really well! It’s a high quality indoor toy with a solid plastic backboard and a metal rim with springs that bend downwards for dunks, it’s a got a real net too.
2. Air Hockey Table
An air hockey table like this is the perfect indoor toy for a ten year old boy. My mother in law bought one of these for our 10 year old son and it’s one of his favorite toys still. Whenever anyone comes over its the first thing they play with. It was the best gift for her grandson because he can play with it inside the house with his friends. This kids air hockey table has taken some serious abuse from excited kids that come over and has held up well.
3. Passback Football
The Passback football is the most amazing indoor toy ever, we bought one of these for our ten year old son so he could practice his passes and catches in the house. He throws it against the wall and catches it for hours. The Passback Football has totally improved his hand eye coordination in the game.
4. Gorilla Gym
The Gorilla Gym is AWESOME SAUCE! This thing will have your monkey doing all sorts of stunts in the doorway. It’s great for when it’s too hot or too cold outside. The different parts are simple to change out, though the pull up bar, swing and the ladder are the most popular in our house. The Gorilla Gym is great way to work out their energy without jumping on my furniture.
5. Indoor Trampoline
This indoor trampoline is great for jumping out those wiggles. Its got a sturdy frame and surface so it can withstand the stunts of a 10 yr old boy. Every kid that comes over and sees this trampoline can’t resist it.. must be the bar? I don’t know but it’s fun to jump on!
6. Electronic Claw Machine
This electronic claw machine is one of those little replicas but it really works good. It has little coins that my son sticks in it and he can really grab for prizes. It fits small toys and candy, whatever you want to put inside. I’ve had like a dozen kids playing with it and this toy has held up.
7. Elenco 130-in-1 Electronic Playground and Learning Center
This is a really cool indoor activity for a ten year old boy.It’s cool to look at and our boy began creating the circuits right away on his own with the help of the instructional book that was included. He loves to take this kit out when he’s bored indoors. It has really helped him understand the basics of electronics.
8. Inflatable Target Set
This is a really cool way to practice throwing indoors. This inflatable blow up has two sides, one side has a baseball catcher, the other side has a football player. It’s a pretty big blow up and it holds up against my rough 10 year old boy in the house.
9. Rock Tumbler Set
This rock tumbler works better than most expensive models out there. It’s built really sturdy, we’ve completed lots of batches of gemstones with it. You can really see the dramatic difference in the rocks once they have been tumbled and polished in this. It’s a fun indoor activity to do for a ten year old boy.
10. Rubiks Build It & Solve It
If you have a ten year old that is into the Rubik’s cube, he’s going to love this. It’s his own Rubik’s to build. My son has already taken apart his cube many times so I wasn’t sure how much he would like this, but he had so much fun with it. The assembled cube is a real cube when it’s all put together.
11. Makey Makey Invention Kit
This kit is a huge hit! A top pick for STEM products for sure! It’s a very good example of hands-on learning for conductivity. I would recommend this to any 10 yr old who loves new technology. This is an excellent science kit for learning about electronics and very basic control systems. You can also write your own code for go with it.
12. Stickbots Animation
Stikbots are a cool indoor toy (and inexpensive too). They are for making stop animation movies! Use any smart phone or tablet camera to make really awesome movies using these little dudes. They stick in different positions because of their suctions cups on their hands and feet. My sons love making movies with them.
13. Think Fun Code Master Programming Logic Game
This is a challenging game for kids and adults. It adds a whole new twist to coding logic. It’s challenging yet not too frustrating. Kids are on computers all the time and it’s nice to take a break and do something a little more ‘unplugged’ like this game here.
14. Pop A Shot Basketball
This is a great buy and it’s a lot of fun, our family has gotten hours and hours of entertainment out of it. The construction is really sturdy and good. The scoreboard is big and the pro announcer makes commentary on the game. This will truly be the best indoor toy you ever purchase your ten year old boy and everyone that comes over and sees it is going to want to play.
