Curious, inventive, and practically teenagers, ten-year-olds are ready for the next level of gifts—toys, games, and books that inspire creativity and individuality. This is a time of identity exploration, connection with friends, and increased independence. Look for gifts that acknowledge that these kids are tweens now, with evolving interests and abilities.
