Playmobil Dragon line. I love the Playmobil brand because they allow children to pretend-play with various scenarios and scenes. I love using Playmobil with preschooler age kids all the way up through tweens or even young teens. My 11-year-old nephew is really interested in dragons and the Dragon Land line from Playmobil is mature enough to still hold his attention. He’s starting to enter the age where he plays with toys less and less, but the Playmobil Giant Battle Dragon still qualifies as cool in his world. It is fun to play with on its own or it pairs up perfectly with the dragon castle and other figurines from the dragon set. Playmobil has other lines that may interested tweens or young teens such as their pirate line, and knights line – be sure to check them out if you’re looking for toys that are cool enough to interest your tween.
Tweens and teens can easily slide into spending a lot of time on phones, tablets, computers and video games. When I see active activities like outdoor games that I think might appeal to tweens or teens I always take note. Djubi is a fun game for playing in the backyard, at BBQs, while camping, etc. It includes two rackets and two balls. The reason why I think it will appeal to tweens and teens in particular is because you point your racket towards your target and pull back on a rubber-band style launcher on the top of your racket to FLING the ball up to 100′ away. Your partner uses their racket to try to catch the ball in the net of their racket. The flinging action of the game makes it a fast paced, exciting, “risky” feeling game that will excite tweens and teens but is fun for adults as well, making it a fun game for families with older kids (recommended for ages 8+).
