Now that Halloween is over, parents are getting ready for the next big holiday that is coming up. Yes, you would think that everyone would have turkey and Thanksgiving on their minds, but they are also looking much further ahead to Christmas and of course, all of the holiday shopping that needs to be done before then.
TODAY says that at 8-years-old, "children are developing their physical skills and social identities," this includes being identified as "artistic" or "athletic," and gifts and toys can center around those.
Luckily, we’ve got some great ideas for the 8-year-old in your life. In fact, these are some of the best toys this season, according to development experts right now.
Klutz Make Your Own Mini Erasers
If you have a child anywhere from the age of 8 or older, there’s a very good chance that you will know mini erasers are a hot ticket item right now. So why now get a kit that allows your child to make their own mini erasers like the Klutz Make Your Own Mini Erasers. The best part about this is that it provides endless hours of fun, as your kids can make, create and mold all different designs for their erasers. And yes, we’ve seen them all from sushi to bowling bowls and cupcakes.

“Harry Potter" Boxed Set
It’s been nearly two decades since Harry Potter first made his way on the scene, but he’s still as popular now as he was back when mom and dad first read the series, too (and yes, most of us did have fun reading our first Harry Potter books in college). This boxed set is a perfect gift for the Harry Potter fan in your family.
