Yes; you read that right – toys. By the age of 15 or 16 most boys have definitely outgrown most toys. But they still enjoy some distractions as they get into more serious study at school. Some of these toys will entertain him when he is by himself, but there are also some he can play with when he gets together with his friends. Some of these toys are nerdy or cheesy, but they’re all going to be fun.
for skateboarding indoors
Assemble your own fingerboard (mini skateboard) and then learn to do tricks such as shuvits, pop shuvits, ollies, flips, slides and more. Great for when he needs to take a break from his study.
You’ll find lots of tutorials on Youtube teaching different tricks.

Mi Jam Pro Air Drummer
These drumsticks are designed to play in the air. You will be able to learn or practice your coordination and rhythm. It comes with a speaker and foot pedal and sounds like a real drum set. It can be connected to your iPod and used with headphones, so your practising does not need to be heard by anyone else.
great for practical jokes
He’ll have fun playing pranks on his friends with this crazy calculator.

CX Blaster Water Balloon Launcher
A great variation on the water fight – here’s a fun activity for your boy to play with his buddies this summer. I recommend using biodegrable water balloons so that it doesn’t matter as much if they are not so diligent at picking up the pieces.
Stylophone Retro Pocket Synth
Here’s a great gift for the musically inclined. It’s a mini stylus-operated synthesizer, a reproduction of a 1967 classic. You can choose from 3 different retro organ sounds. It also has an MP3 jack so that you can play your favorite tunes through the speaker and play along. Hey, it’s a bit cheesy but it’s so much fun!
