On any given day, though, a group of nine-year-olds can get “off the chain.” But the mayhem of this age group is worth it when compared to the joy they bring.
Gifts for boys of this age should foster activity, involvement, and creativity. And rest assured that the large group of suggested top gifts below are both appropriate and “winners.” For athletic kids, the Mongoose Argus Fat Tire Mountain Bike will be an unforgettable transition into “big kid” status.
