It can be a little tricky finding toys that your eight- to 11-year-old will love. But our mums and their kids have been hard at work testing some great toys for this age group. So, if you’re looking for a great gift idea, you can rest assured that these toys will go down a storm with children aged 8-11 years. We are delighted to announce our winners as:

What our tester said: “Stalk can be used well to direct recording and allow for voice over recording while creating a picture of the story. The built-in microphone is ok but better linked to external.”
