Gift Ideas for Tweens that are Too Cool for School
As your children become preadolescence (the more boring way of saying ‘tweens’), they can get increasingly hard to buy gifts for. They’ve outgrown all the toys they used to love when they were little kids, and with an independent streak developing anything you buy them is just not cool enough.
But it doesn’t have to be this way — at Educational Toys Online, we have a range of toys that we guarantee that your children will not only love, but will also maintain their motivation for learning and help them to achieve better results at school. The ages between 6-10, just before puberty, or some of the most formative ones for your child, as this is when they are beginning to develop a sense of what they enjoy doing. And most importantly, our engaging educational toys will tear them away from their computer screens, and give them something more productive to do than play video games for hours on end!
We’ve compiled a list of the Top 10 Gifts for Tweens here, toys that will nurture the passions that your child is developing. See some of our ideas below!
