Hot Wheels Roto Revolution Track Playset
Looking for something a little less aggressive?
Kids love playing with cars. And watching them go BOOM and CRASH is exciting and scream-inducing. There’s something to be said about knocking your opponents on the track when they thought they “had you”.
The Roto Revolution track from Hot Wheels combines the precision of timing and the enjoyment of the crash into one simplified track playset. Sit back, wait for the perfect time, launch your car and try to make it out without being knocked out by your opponent – oh yeah, you have an opponent.

If your children like watching cars crash in cinematic fashion, then the Corkscrew Crash Track Set from Hot Wheels will keep them busy for hours. The design is phenomenal, with multiple motors sending cars flying through multiple loops at speeds almost impossible to see. Add more than one car and watch as they get closer and closer to the eventual BOOM. Can’t wait to see the mayhem – add even more cars! See how many you can get inside the corkscrew before everything goes haywire.
Buy plenty of cars for your children and watch as they unleash mayhem on the living room floor. Watch as they try to figure out how to get five cars in the corkscrew at one time – it’s not possible.

Hot Wheels Track Builder Vertical Launch Kit
Another great option for your little speed demon is the Track Builder Vertical Launch Kit from Hot Wheels. Here, they can pick one of two different track layouts from one launcher. All they have to do is adjust the top turn rail to go left or right. If they go to the right, they have a free-fall drop that turns into a vertical corkscrew track. On the left, the track has an extreme drop the goes into two vertical loops for an amazing entry. Both are designed to work with other Hot Wheels kits which makes this a great addition to their other track kits.
It’s huge with a height of four feet, so they’ll have plenty of options to work with. In fact, the launcher can be used on the other kits too if they decide they want to modify their courses. This is a unique way to start their tracks. Most children will not have any trouble using this, though it does state that adult assembly is required. It does not require any batteries as all the power is provided by a quick push on a launch lever.
Hot Wheels Super 6-Lane Raceway
If your kid loves Hot Wheels, then they probably already have several cars. In fact, they probably have at least ten different cars. When everyone comes over, they end up “racing” them to see who can get the furthest or get the wall the fastest. While this is cool, it can leave your walls and baseboards dinged up. Instead of fixing your baseboards, get them the Super 6-Lane Raceway from Hotwheels.
It’s a huge 8-foot track that actually tells them who wins. They can line up six cars side by side and press the release button – that’s when the action starts. The cars hurtle down the track at blistering speeds, with the victor crossing the finish line first. Plus, there will never be a question of who won with the digital finish line (requires batteries; not included). When they are done, the track folds up nicely and can fit easily in the side of a closet or under the bed; even better, it rolls around so you don’t have to deal with scratch marks on your hardwood floors either.
Traxxas Stampede 1/10 2WD Monster Truck
While Hot Wheels can be hours of entertainment, there is something about larger vehicles that boys love. If they want something a little bigger, with a little more speed, and a lot more control, then they’ll love the Traxxas Stampede 2WD Monster Truck.
Traxxas builds some of the most advanced remote-controlled (RC) vehicles around. More importantly, they build some of the most durable RC vehicles too. The Stampede is an electronic (batteries required; charger required) remote-controlled vehicle that is waterproof and weatherproof for hours of fun in any environment. The large 2.8” wheels with foam inserts help it to climb over all kinds of obstacles. The 12-Turn 550 motor will give it more than enough speed to please any 7-year old and the remote control is easy to learn.
When they seem bored with their Hot Wheels car, this is the next step up. Remember, BIG boys love BIG toys!

Now you can convert your backyard into an obstacle course too. The kit comes with a 40-foot slackline where you can attach multiple obstacles for a unique, challenging course in just a few seconds.

Lefree Digital Counting Money Jar
It can be hard to get your kids to save, but things might be changing (pun intended). When they find a few pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters on the ground, they can put them in their own “piggy bank” where it will keep a total of how much they’ve put in.
- Money from the tooth fairy – into the jar!
- Money from doing chores – into the jar!

The problem is simple – you’re not giving them anything in return for their “sacrifice”. With the Wham-O Hamper Hoops, you’re giving them a little bit of a challenge.
We all know boys have a “competitive” gene built into them. They can’t stand the idea that someone is better than them at something. So, get them this and challenge them to a friendly game of basketball. Once they figure out that a little practice will make them the champ, they’ll be throwing clothes from all over the room – and you’ll be able to remove the clothes when they are ready.

Maybe they just can’t get enough basketball when the weather is bleak outside. Whatever the reason, they’ll love the SKLZ Pro Mini Basketball Hoop with Ball.
The backboard is shatter resistant and slips over most doors with two sturdy hooks. The rim even has a breakaway feature to avoid breaking when your guys get a little rough with a dunk or two to secure their points. Even though it is miniaturized, they won’t feel like they got the “short end of the stick” as this is not a small basketball goal. The basketball is 5.5 inches in diameter and the backboard is almost 2 feet wide.
If your children like basketball, or need something to do inside when the weather is uncooperative, this Mini Basketball Hoop from SKLZ is perfect!

For a 7-year old boy, what else could you ask for?
Things You Should Consider When Buying Toys For 7-Year Old Boys
If you are trying to figure out what is best for your 7-year old boy, then you need to focus in on three things.
What Are They Interested In?
Every child is different! And while one might enjoy rough and tough adventures, another may enjoy the safety of the living room floor. If they don’t act rough and tough, you probably shouldn’t get them a ninja obstacle course.
What Is Their Learning Style?
Some children learn by doing while others learn by watching. Pay attention to this and make sure that you buy toys that help them learn while still giving them hours of enjoyment. If they can’t figure it out, they’ll leave it off to the side – not what you want.
What Is Their Personality?
If your child loves to play with others, don’t buy him a gift that can be enjoyed by one – buy him a gift that can be enjoyed by several kids. NERF guns and obstacle courses are great for outgoing children. K’NEX and LEGOs are great for non-outgoing children. Buy for what they are, not for what you want them to be.
As you can see, there are plenty of toys and gifts for 7-year old boys. Almost any gift on this list is going to buy a WIN for you (and them). Of course, use the buyer’s guide to help you make the right decision and you’ll never regret what you spent on them.
We hope you found several gifts for your 7-year old boy – we know we would love these toys and we aren’t 7 years old!
