Games For Boys
Welcome to Games For Boys!
Whether it is football, racing, brain training or dressing up, boys are easy to buy for. From a young age they have a very active imagination which is a great thing to encourage. Some may prefer to make up their own games using fancy dress and others may prefer to take inspiration from computer games.
Whatever they choose there is always some great new games out there to keep boys occupied for hours on end. Have a look around our site for some ideas for boys’ games - we have many popular products listed, all at brilliant prices.
In the early stages of a boy’s life, purchasing games which focus on learning may be ideal. Younger children are usually easy to buy games for as, at this stage, they are essentially stimulated by colour, shapes and movement. Games which involve spelling or maths are great to show boys that learning can be fun.
There are also classic puzzle games like Connect 4 for older boys which will stimulate their problem solving skills. Traditional jigsaw puzzles are also great for this and these games can be played with other boys or with the family. Why not invest in an updated version of a classic board game? Games like Monopoly are always introducing new versions and they have a great kid’s version which can be played with family or friends.
Costume games and parties are great when boys are younger and still enjoy the fantasy of becoming their favourite characters from film and TV. There are plenty of games that can revolve around costumes and there is always a party to go to when kids are younger, so purchasing a few boys fancy dress outfits is a good idea. They do have a tendency to enjoy one particular character and then go off them quickly, so maybe try to pick something generic that will never go out of ‘fashion’.
Boys particularly enjoy becoming heroes, whether it is pretend heroes from comic books or film or it is real life heroes like policemen or soldiers. Boys also love to dress up in scary costumes for Halloween and are full of great ideas. Whatever their choice, you have the satisfaction of knowing that they used their own imaginations to come with costume ideas.
In the digital age, PC and console games are the most popular type of games for boys. Shooting games for boys and racing games for boys are consistently favourites as well as the traditional football games. They can enjoy paying in football tournaments or become football managers.
Of course there are other sports games to choose from such as skiing, snowboarding or skateboarding. All of these will stimulate boys’ competitive side and perhaps encourage them to take up a new, exciting sport in real life. Classic games such as Super Mario and Sega have also been updated for new players so why not make it a two player and show them the games you played as a child?
There are endless ideas for games so have a look around Games For Boys and get some inspiration for boy’s games.
