As the Holidays are approaching, you’re probably scrambling to find the best toys and gifts for your children. Here’s Partify’s approved list of toys, books, and games to gift the 7 Year old in your life. We’ve searched and narrowed down our best picks, ensuring for happy children and happy parents. Gifts for age 7 should be, in our opinion, not simply toys but things that help the child develop their hobbies, thinking and skills. Since this is an age that a lot of kids already have hobbies and things they love doing, so tap into that and help them reach the next level, or help them discover new ones - if the child loves cooking or baking, a professional set of tools can be a great fit, for a child that loves singing, a professional Karaoke microphone would be the right choice etc.



Age Numbers-1

This sandstone kit is perfect to a child who is interested in science and exploring things. Ignite their natural curiosity and jumpstart the child’s collection of rocks and stones (which is a great inexpensive hobby). These are real-life, genuine fossils and stones curated by National Geographic that includes shark teeth, rose quartz, jasper, gastropods, clams, and other meteorite specimens. Encouraging your child to create collections and learn about Earth’s materials is associated with STEM skills building. Complete the gift by throwing in a book where they can learn about and study these materials, preparing them for related units in school.

This 3D pen is probably one of the coolest toys the child will ever play with. It dispenses plastic from the pen’s tip that can be drawn into whatever figure he or she likes. It’s easy to use and prevents children from drawing and painting in places they shouldn’t (and you know how often it happens!). This pen dispenses low temperature plastic, like a 3D printer.

The child can create and build anything he or she wants with this 3D pen, encouraging hours of imaginative play and creativity.
