5 Hot Toys for Children Ages 5-7

Children between the ages of 5 and 7 are going through multiple changes. They’re starting school, socializing more, and developing their own set of hobbies and interests. Even still, it’s not hard to find great toys to keep them busy and this holiday season will present you with an opportunity to give your child something totally ‘cool.’

Bakugan 7 in 1 Maxus Dragonoid

The Bakugan toys are magnetic balls that pop open when exposed to their individualized metal cards. Based off of the popular anime TV show, this particular set includes 6 Bakugan balls that when combined make up the frightening Maxus Dragonoid monster. When playing the Bakugan game the Bakugans from this set can be used individually or together as a fearsome team. Your opponents will be shivering with fear.

Razor A Kick Scooter

The Razor A Kick Scooter is quickly becoming a favorite amongst both children and teens alike. Kids love zipping from point A to point B at what feels like warp speeds. The sturdy aluminum frame will last for years and the folding features make it easy to store or carry wherever you’re traveling. The scooter is great for children ages 5 and up and can hold weights up to 143 pounds.

Transformers Movie 2 Combiner – Construction Devastator

The Construction Devastator from the Transformers movie is perhaps one of the scariest robots on earth. The Construction Devastator is made up of 6 individual vehicles and works with both voice and motion activation sensors. Your little ones will love recreating their favorite Transformers scenes.


Bananagrams are quickly becoming one of the most entertaining word games ever created. Designed in crossword-style fashion, the goal is to split up the tiles, create words, and use up all of your tiles before everyone else. Generally recommended for children ages 7 and older, this game is great for children just learning to spell as well.

Insect Lore Live Butterfly Garden

Do you have a budding scientist on your holiday shopping list this year? If so, consider the Insect Lore Live Butterfly Garden. Your child will receive butterfly larvae and butterfly food in the mail. After placing the larvae in the habitat, he’ll have the chance to watch his larvae evolve into caterpillars and then into butterflies. Once they’re grown, he can release them into the wild and start the process all over again.

Children between the ages of 5 and 7 tend to be imaginative and explorative. Cater to their whims with some exciting and at least partially educational games and toys. You’ll be glad you made the investment!
