10 Top Toys For Teen Boys
LEGO Tower Bridge 10214
This LEGO Tower Bridge 10214 would make an awesome addition to any LEGO-loving teenager boy’s LEGO collection!
The attention to detail is absolutely amazing and this replica does an excellent job of paying tribute to this iconic landmark. Your teen will even be treated to a drawbridge that opens and closes. How cool is that!
Out of the box, there are 4259 pieces including over 80 windows and 4 miniature vehicles: The classic red double-decker bus and black taxi cab, a green automobile and a yellow truck.
Also included are 3 detailed instruction books and 5 blue base plates.
Although it’s an enormous structure when it’s finished, it’s not overly difficult to build because there is a lot of repetition. For example, each of the 2 major towers are built identically, as are the 2 horizontal walkways that connect the towers.
But along the way your teen will have to use some advanced techniques which makes the build even more fun and keeps it interesting.
Measuring 40″ long X 17″ high X 10″ wide, LEGO’s London Tower Bridge makes a stunning display piece. And even though all the parts lock firmly together, it’s not a problem to take it apart in sections for easy transport.
Because the vast majority of LEGO kits come with numbered bags which make assembly easier, it’s important to note that the bags in LEGO 10214 are not numbered.
Some people find this to be a bit of a pain while others say it just makes the build more challenging and enjoyable.
The London Tower Bridge takes time and patience to build but LEGO lovers who have built it say the finished product is well worth the time and effort!
This large intricate model is a build that’s sure to please LEGO and model fans alike. It’s a well designed and conceived building kit that’s sure to be hit with any teen who enjoys model building, LEGO or otherwise!

If you have a teen who likes the sound of his own voice and enjoys fun competition, Spontuneous is the game for him!
This awesome song game is easy to play, can be played by 4 to 10 players and it’s great for friends and family of all ages and musical talents.
The object of the game is to be the first to advance around the board and reach the finish line. Along the way you’ll have to burst into song and maybe even perform some challenges.
Out of the box you’ll get a game board that has a giant treble clef on it, 10 player pieces, 2 dice, a timer, Spontuneous challenge cards, a Spontuneous paper pad and game instructions.
The game starts by each player choosing a word from different songs they know. These are called ‘trigger words’ and each player needs 3-5 trigger words on their list before play starts.
On your turn, you become the Tunesmith and you being your turn by flipping the 15 second timer over and reading out one of your trigger words.
It’s then a race for all the other players to belt out at least 5 words of a song containing your trigger word. First player to do that before time expires gets to roll the dice and advance around the board.
If nobody comes up with at least 5 words of a song containing the trigger word before time expires then you, as the Tunesmith, have to sing a 5-word portion of a song containing your own trigger word.
If you can’t, you roll the dice and move backwards.
So you need to pick your trigger words carefully. You want to choose trigger words that come from songs you know the lyrics to, but you also want your trigger words to stump everyone else.
The game board has spaces with ‘Spontuneous’ on them and if you land on a Spontuneous space, you have to draw a Spontuneous card and attempt the challenge that’s on the card.
This song game can be played in teams or as individuals. Although it’s a competitive game, most people end up not caring whether they win or lose simply because they’re having so much fun playing!
Half the fun of this hilarious game is singing the songs out of tune! And don’t worry if you can’t carry a tune because you can just shout the words out instead of singing them.
Spontuneous is a fantastic game that will have everyone singing, shouting and laughing as they make their way around the game board.

Nerf N Strike Elite Triad EX 3 Blaster
The Nerf N Strike Elite Triad EX 3 Blaster might be a small gun but it packs a lot of power!
This pistol size blaster has 3 barrels and can hold up to 3 darts at once. Its smart technology tells the gun which barrel is loaded and as long as there’s a dart in one of the barrels, this little gun makes sure it gets fired.
The EX 3 fires the darts one at a time and the primer lever has to be pulled down each time your teen wants to fire a dart. But it’s easy to prime which makes for really fast firing.
Although the manufacturer claims the darts can go almost 90 feet, range tests indicate the maximum distance is closer to about 75 feet. But that’s still an excellent distance for darts coming out of such a small gun.
Along with the Triad EX 3 blaster, this Nerf gun also come with 3 Elite darts and instructions. Additional darts are sold separately.
Small enough to fit in a pocket or in the palm of your teen’s hand, Nerf’s EX 3 is excellent for close up, surprise attacks. But because the darts can fly as far as ones out of some of the bigger blasters, kids also have the option of firing from a distance.
This mini sized blaster has mega power, good accuracy and it’s perfect for both backyard wars with friends and family and target practice.
If your teenager is a Nerf fan, adding this little blaster to his arsenal will give him a great main or back up weapon!

It features a 5/8″ MDF top that’s been professionally finished and has silkscreen striping on top so it’s smooth and durable. The MDF top ensures the ball will bounce consistently across the playing surface, while the printed on lines won’t come off or affect the way the ball bounces like taped on lines do.
Designed for indoor use only, there’s a 1.5″ welded steel tube style apron that provides solid support to the surface of the table. The legs are 1.5″ square legs are made of steel and have built in adjustable leg levelers, which come in very handy if you’re setting this table up on an uneven surface.

If you’re looking for a super fun game that will keep your teen active, Spikeball is an excellent option!
This awesome game’s popularity has soared since it was featured on Shark Tank, and for good reason. Spikeball can be played by anyone, regardless of their fitness level or athletic ability.
Teens love it because it’s a very social game, it’s easy to learn, it’s very portable and it can be played just about anywhere, inside and outside. All that’s needed is an empty space that’s about 10 feet in diameter and it’s game time! Plus assembly is a breeze so this game can be up and running in no time flat.
The traditional game of Spikeball is played by 4 people total; 2 teams of 2. The game consists of a hula hoop size net that’s placed at ankle level and a baseball-size inflatable ball that’s soft enough to not cause injury.
Both players of a team are on the same side of the net. The object of the game is to spike the ball into the net in such as way that it rebounds to the opposing team. The opposing team then has a maximum of 3 volleys before they have to spike the ball down at the net and back to the other team.
Play continues until one team either misses or doesn’t return the ball properly. Every time that happens, the opposing team gets a point. First team to 21 points wins.
Spikeball is easy to learn but because it incorporates a lot of athletic movements from a bunch of different sports, it’s very challenging and a great workout. And although it’s designed to be played by 4 players, there are lots of different variations for more or less players.
The version we’re featuring here is the Spikeball Meal Combo. Out of the box your teen will get 1 net, a plastic hoop (aka rim), 5 plastic legs, 3 balls, game rules and a convenient custom backpack that’s perfect for easy storage and transport.
If your teen likes competitive fun and challenging games, Spikeball is a game he’ll definitely want to check out!
