As children age, finding the perfect gift can grow in complexity. In this selection, you'll find a range of toys and games for pre-teen kids aged 9 to 12.
Looking for a small stocking stuffer gift today? Try a fun sensory toy for pre-teens, such as putty or morphing gel, designed to keep their hands busy at school or home. Each of our fidgets and chewies is designed with kids in this age group in mind.
Shop for the timeless favorites such as Aaron's crazy putty or pin art, or dive a bit deeper with products designed to help them get closer to achieving the skills they're capable of. Our selection of educational games for elementary and middle school students, is designed to help children practice social interactions, critical thinking, planning and more.

If you don't have children in this age group, you might be interested to know that during this time in a child's life, most will experience a strong desire to become much more independent. Many will look increasingly to their peers and social media for advice and a sense of belonging, and their social interactions will become much more significant around this time to create lasting impressions. By the time children enter junior high school, most will have explicitly expressed a need to make more decisions for themselves and the family unit, and taking on additional responsibilities often comes naturally at this age.

Children in this age group also regularly struggle with feelings of insecurity and self-esteem. Blending in and forming relationships becomes more difficult as kids age, particularly as kids begin to develop romantic interests in other boys and girls.
These developmental milestones are oftentimes not that much different for pre-teens with autism, aspergers or other learning or sensory disorders. For many children, this time marks the beginning of ongoing growing pains that will last well into their teens.
We offer a wide selection of tools to help kids achieve their full potential. Shop our complete selection of learning resources, skill building activities and social games for teens and young adults here.
