It’s quite difficult to explain why it’s such a riot to play, but let me try. It’s like a combination of a white elephant gift exchange, an estate sale, and Robin Hood (because you steal from the rich and give it to yourself… wait, that’s not like Robin Hood at all… oh well, hopefully you get the point). Your fortune can be made, or lost, in just a few turns. You’re never out of the game until the last card is played.

14. Skull King Game
Your tweens will love this fun and highly-reviewed game! Skull King is a trick-taking game similar to ‘Wizard’, ‘Eucher’ and ‘Spades’, with players needing to state how many tricks they think they’ll win each round. A unique element of this game is that bidding takes place simultaneously, leading to rounds that are sometimes over, or under-bid. As players must win the exact number of tricks that they bid to earn points, winning too many tricks is just as bad as winning too few and this leads to intense competition where losing a trick can be as exciting as winning one. This game is the perfect size to tuck in your tween’s stocking.
15. Nerf War Goggles
If your tweens love to have Nerf wars, then they will love these super affordable and awesome goggles to protect their eyes. My boys love their Nerf Rival guns, but I worry about those little balls, hitting their eyes. This 2-pack of goggles are made of comfortable foam and doesn’t cover their entire face.

Everyone loves these fun Pocky Sticks and they come in so many great flavors. Did you know that Pocky is the most popular chocolate covered biscuit in Japan? Pocky is made from expertly crafted biscuit dough that uses the highest quality flour, and a chocolate coating using Cacao grown under the Ecuadorian sun.

What is a Stikbot? Stikbots just 3 inches tall and are pose-able sticky bots who will adhere to almost any flat surface thanks to their suction-cup hands and feet.

Single Stikbot Packs or Action Packs (includes accessories!) make great stocking stuffers for tweens.
22. Epic Zero Book
I love these highly-reviewed Epic Zero Books. They are specifically for tween boys entering middle school. They have everything a superhero fan of middle-grade age could want: action, suspense, and more than a little humor. Epic Zero is the story of a young man born into a family of powerful superheroes, but with no powers of his own. His situation is unqiue, but the feelings of not-quite-belonging and the struggle to find a sense of purpose and identity are things we all wrestled with at that age. Readers find a main character they can relate to, and will understand and go along when he makes questionable choices in his attempts to figure himself out and make his mark on the world. They’ll be rooting for him from page one.
My boys love these cool stickers for their Hydroflask waterbottles or their binders. This super affordable 100-pack of stickers comes with a lot of fun super hero and brand-looking designs, plus they are made with waterproof technology!

It keeps your hands free and the adjustable head strap offers an ideal fit for a variety of head sizes. It is cold and impact resistant and has IPX-5 certified waterproof protection from 6.3mm spray of water in any direction for at least 3 minutes. This makes a cool stocking stuffer for tween boys. Choose from six cool headlamp colors.
Teens who love to go the pool, lake or beach will have a blast with this small (a little smaller than a tennis ball) Waboda Pro ball. This water-bouncing ball takes water games and activities to the next level. It is engineered for sport performance and the Waboba Pro’s heavier weight gives it advanced athletic control. Your teen can play in teams or enjoy skipping this cool ball on the water by himself.
27. Prankopedia Book
Pranklopedia is the young practical joker’s secret weapon, a boisterous collection of over 70 guaranteed-to-amuse (or annoy) pranks to be pulled on friends, siblings, and parents. Discover the Homework Hoax, the Squirting Blister, the Movie Popcorn That Grabs You Back. Pull classic pranks on your siblings, like short-sheeting the bed. Freak out your friends with food pranks: a self-peeling banana, “misfortune” cookies, or ice cream that will make them scream. And there are perfect pranks to pull on your parents, including a scheme to “freeze” the family computer.
Fill or Bust is all about rolling dice and pressing your luck. On your turn, roll the dice and set aside at least one die that scores you points. If you want, you can roll the remaining dice – but if none of those dice score for you, you lose all points accumulated that round! Your challenge is further complicated by a deck of cards that determines what goal you might be forced to shoot for during that turn. Some goal cards dangle the prospect of huge bonuses, while others slam the door on you, ending your turn before it starts.
29. Black Post-Its and White Gel Pens
Boys love these black Post-its and they are perfect for reminding themselves of things in a cool way. The best part is these sticky notes look so cool once you write on them with these white gel pens. What a fun stocking stuffer idea for tween boys.
My kids love these Ty Peek a Boos Holders with a screen cleaner bottom. They come in many different animals and they can hold phones, ipods, game controllers and more. Or you can buy 2 to hold 2 ends of an ipad. Turn them over and their bottoms can be used to clean the screens of their favorite devices.
It’s the Jenga game everyone loves, but in a pocket-sized version! This mini version of the Jenga game may be smaller than the classic game, but it’s still loads of fun! Enjoy the excitement and anticipation, as each player carefully pulls out blocks and tries to build the stack higher until it comes tumbling down. Be the last player to stack a block without causing the tower to tumble down to win! This would be fun to play while waiting for food at a casual restaurant or on vacation.
What Are PopSockets? PopSockets are expanding grips and stands that attach to most phones, tablets, and cases. They come in different themes such as Sports, Galaxy, Beach, Camo and so many more! Add a single PopSocket, or a pair of PopSockets, to the back of almost any mobile device to transform its capabilities. PopSockets “pop” whenever you need a grip, a stand, an earbud-management system, or just something to play with. Remove your PopSocket by pulling slowly on the base; you can reposition and reattach time and time again. You’ll always have the exact grip or stand you need. PopSockets not only make terrific phone grips and phone stands, they also make holding tablets and e-readers more comfortable and secure. Whether you place PopSockets on your Nintendo 3DS for gaming, your GoPro for a supplemental grip in the water, or on your bedroom mirror to hang jewelry, the possibilities are endless. If you attach two PopSockets to your device you now have a convenient earbud-management system. Simply wrap the cord around the two PopSockets, and voila! No more tangly mess to deal with. Never Lose Grip on Your Phone or Tablet Again!
