Thanks for checking out today’s post. After reading I’d love to hear your thoughts on the comments by clicking here —> Top Ten Gift Ideas For A 7 Year Old With Down Syndrome
Sometime back we wrote a blog post on the top Christmas gift ideas for a baby born with Down syndrome (as well as the top gifts under 25 dollars, and the top developmental toys) however, Noah has outgrown many of those toys, and so I thought it would be a good idea to write an updated blog post.
Noah will be 7 years old in just a few days, and if you’re looking for a great Christmas or birthday gift for a child with Down syndrome (or really any boy) I wanted to share some of our favorites with you! By the way, I mentioned seven years old because that’s how old Noah will be in a few days, but truthfully many of these toys would be great for a wide range of ages. I’d encourage you to check them out!

Top Gift Ideas for a 7 Year Old with Down Syndrome
1. Cartoon R/C Formula Race Car Radio Control Toy by Liberty Imports (ENGLISH Packaging)
Noah has a slightly different version of this remote control car, but we like these types of remote control cars because they are easy to control and tough! (read: they can be bumped around and still work well!)

2. Disney Pixar Cars 3 Four Lane Race Set
Our kids are obsessed with toy cars! We have Hot Wheels all over our house, but since they also like the Cars movies, this four-lane race track is a win-win! A great feature of this race track is your child’s siblings or their friends can also play with them at the same time. It also doesn’t take up near as much space as some of the big Hot Wheel race racks.

3. Disney Pixar Cars 3 Piston Cup Diecast Collection, 10-Pack Vehicles
As I mentioned above our boys are fans of the Cars movies, and toy cars – so these Cars toy cars are great! They cost a little more than generic Hot-Wheels (my guess is because they are licensed Disney toys) however, for authentic Cars toys – they are a good buy!

4. Foam Knight Sword & Sheild
If you have a boy, I think this foam Sword and Sheild set may be one of the best gift ideas on this list! We have two of these sets, and Noah and three-year-old brother have a blast playing with these! They are made of foam so they don’t hurt if they hit each other with them, and they are fun toys for the boys to pretend with, and get out some of their built-up energy!

5. Woofer (Hound Dog Guitar)
One of Noah’s favorite things to do is pretend he is rocking out for us! He enjoys using this guitar (and the microphone that I list below.) This guitar can take a beating, lights up, and plays music. It’s another great toy for your child to pretend with.

6. Kids Karaoke Machine with 2 Microphones & Adjustable Stand
As I mentioned above, Noah really enjoys signing and pretending he’s playing the guitar. This karaoke machine has two microphones and will help your child feel like a rock star!

7. Fisher-Price Imaginext DC Super Friends, Super Hero Flight City
One of my favorite things about the stage of life Noah is in, is how much he likes to pretend play. He really likes to spend time playing with all of his plastic figures. Imaginext toys are tough and can take a beating (which is good if you have kids like mine that like to roughhouse their toys.)

8. Melissa & Doug Double-Sided Magnetic Tabletop Art Easel
This is a great toy to let your child express their artistic side! We really like Mellisa and Doug toys – and this easel would make a great addition to kid’s toy closet!

9. PicassoTile / Magnet Building Tiles
These magnetic tiles get a lot of play time in our house! They are easy to put together, you can build patterns on the ground, or build up, and they allow Noah to be creative!

10. Disney / Pixar Cars 3 Ultimate Florida Speedway Track Set
This toy is currently on Noah’s wish list! We don’t own it, but when it sees it on TV he lets us know he’d like to have it! It looks super fun, so we included it on the list for any other Cars fans out there.
