This is an age group that can be hard to buy for - this is when kids start to grow up, but not necessarily at the same speed. One boy of nine or 10 will happily get stuck in to building a Lego set, while another will turn up his nose completely at 'childish' toys.
Add in the fact that overstretched adults often find 'present fatigue' sets in early, and finding the right gift can seem like an exhausting task. Luckily, we've got you covered with some great ideas to get you started.
However, let's remember not to neglect the familiar favourites, either. It isn't all about the latest technology or trends - our Christmas gift guide includes tried-and-tested toys that continue to be popular with kids today.
This includes a scooter, a remote controlled helicopter - and that old playground classic, the Diabolo. For more mature members of the age group, we also have gifts like the Junior Carpenter woodwork set, which encourages the development of useful talents while still being fun and rewarding.
There truly is something for everyone - have a look at the gallery below, and start getting inspired!
