Games or toy for a boy aged 7+.

Hi,
Can anyone recommend a toy or a game for an clever 7 year old boy. His parents are teachers so I suspect this boy is bright. Ideally, under £15 but could go up to £18.99.
I have been looking online for about and hour!

  • Lego? Or something from the Happy Puzzle Company, maybe?

    Rory's story cubes. They come in a variety of types. 3 main sets of 9 cubes & then you can buy (don't have to) additional sets of 3 cubes to vary the stories you create.


    They're picture dice that you roll to create a story. Any story - whatever your imagination thinks!

    Play alone or with others.


    Ideal for anyone of any age/ability especially if out & about & need to pass the time. Also good for grandparents etc. to spend some quality non electronic time with the grandchildren.


    We have several sets as they're good when you're on holiday & need to keep everyone amused! The box is small so fits easily into a bag or pocket.

    Our Godson is 7 and we have got him a case for his guitar and 2 of the David Walliams books. Didn't realise he had so many out and look great for that age range of boys!

    Spot it or Dobble is a great game.

    Last year we had a pack holiday for our Brownies, based around the David Walliams books.
  • I hope you managed to get ideas for a 7yr old. I have a 7yr son and he loves quitels which is beads set to make up different designs and spray with water to mesh together. He had 2 sets a dragon one and recently got a dinosaur one for his birthday which he loved doing himself.
