The home stretch to the holidays is upon us and that means the hunt for great gifts is in full effect! One of the hardest ages to buy for is the 8-year-old crowd, and I know because I have one in the house. It can be a delicate balance as kids enter the age that’s not quite a little kid and just on the cusp of those tween years. The good news is that there are plenty of great choices out there and they run the gamut from cool craft kits and construction sets to awesome action figures and great games that these not-so-little-ones will love as they continue to grow up too fast. Scroll down for some of our curated picks for the best toys for 8-year-olds this holiday season!
