Whilst computer games tend to be rather high up the agenda for 13 year old children, itís still possible to find a good selection of modern-day classic games that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Companies like Hasbro and Ravensburger have good ranges for this age, so itís perhaps worth looking to them for inspiration as well as a wide choice.
Many games for this age tend to have a celebrity or topical slant to them, although there is more than just board and electronic games out there. Budding engineers are likely to be interested in some of the more complex Lego and Meccano sets that can provide very challenging projects. Failing that, why not look towards sports toys which tend to transcend the age ranges, and are as popular with children aged 13 as much as any other age group.
