Finding unique and cool gifts for kids isn’t always easy, especially for a generation of juniors whose interests are constantly evolving. This age can be particularly tough because they insecurely cross the line between kid and tween, with interests that change from day to day.

That’s why we’ve rounded up our favorite toys and gifts for all 9-year-olds to help them feel more grown up without leaving the world of toys completely behind. From night lights to help them fall asleep to outdoor play toys to choices that are more educational and encourage them to learn, there are so many gifts out there. Whether you’re interested in music, photography, hands-on building or gaming, we’ve found loads of fun and practical tips for you. Look ahead.
