The best way for children to learn is through play, and educational toys encourage the development of essential skills while the child is having fun. Carry on reading for our favorite educational toys for 7 year olds.
Educational toys are the best, not only are parents happy (as their child is learning) but kids are happy too. Children get a sense of achievement when they have completed a level on their educational game.
Any toy can offer value to a developing brain, but educational toys and learning games are so much better.

Educational Toys For 7 Year Olds
Benefits of Educational Toys
The use of educational toys can help children learn many different skills they will need in their life such as:
- Learning how to share
- Development of fine and gross motor skills
- Creativity and imagination
- Increases a child’s IQ
- Positive self-esteem
We have started our home education journey and we integrate educational toys into our weekly routine. Freddie loves playing and I find that he learns so much more when he is playing than when he is sitting behind a desk.
These educational toys are perfect for all children, not just for those who homeschool.
We have always been a fan of educational toys and I will list below our favorites.
Best Educational Toys For 7 Year Olds
I have added 8 of the absolute best educational toys for 7 year olds that they will absolutely love playing with.
If you are looking for educational board games check out over 40 of our favorites.
Lego has been a firm favorite in our home for many years. It was a favorite when he was 7 and still continues to be a favorite now he is 12, check out the challenging Legos he currently builds. But for 7 year olds the Lego options are almost endless.
Encourage kids to start programming from the age of 5 with Play Osmo. We have reviewed this amazing coding game previously and we are massive fans. Freddie loves it because he is playing on the IPad, I as a parent love it as he is learning how to code. Grab your Osmo now.
Magnetic Building Blocks
These Playmags are so bright and colorful and are a perfect way for kids to get into STEM. Get kids building with these magnetic tiles.
Kidzlab math magic educational game includes 15 fun math tricks. A great way to have fun while learning.
FReNeTiC Board Game
Young scientists can investigate everything from cells to crystals with power settings from 50x to 600x. The built-in light and focus help deliver bright, clear images. The kit has professionally prepared slides and everything they need to make their own specimen slides.
This is a great microscope and we love the samples that are already provided. This is a great educational gift for a child over the age of 7. It is of excellent quality, and the built-in light is a must. We tried using this on a bright day and we still needed the built-in light to see the slide.
Brain Box Maths
Brain Box has so many educational games, but we particularly like Brainbox Maths level 4. This is so much fun, especially for Freddie who is lots better than me at this. Although some of the questions as an adult you would know easily, for example in currency what is p short for. A lot of it is memory-based, ie. what color was the triangle!
