Gift Ideas for Kids who Love Sharks

There are two rites of passage for boys in our family…first the dinosaur phase (obsession!) during which we read, eat, talk, play dinosaurs 24/7.  A few years later they go through the equally obsessive shark phase. Right now, son #3 is deep in the shark phase and I know far more about sharks than any mother ought to. 😉 Shark Week kind of reignites the shark obsession for all of our boys so all three of them have been talking shark this week. Add to that boy 3’s birthday is right around the corner so I thought I should do some good shark gift research. I found lots of gifts that any shark loving kid will enjoy.

Shark Gifts that are educational

Shark Toob– I love that these toobs have a variety of sharks and my kids love to identify them and play with them.

How to draw Sharks Book– This book has amazing reviews and would make a great activity for shark loving kids! I would add a sketchbook and some colored pencils.

Shark Gifts that are useful

Shark + Pool = fun! I love this shark pool float (and I think that it could be used for some really fun shark party games! I’ve also seen these used as reading nooks for kids. Blow it up, add a blanket and pillow on the bottom and put it in your child’s room for a fun and useful gift!

Shark Fin- This can be used for pretend play and in the pool!! Amazing reviews!!

This Shark Wallet is one of the cutest kid wallets I’ve ever seen. My little guys would love this.




Shark Gifts that are Fun

Find It at the Beach Game–  This game has other sea creatures (and includes a shark) but they last for hours of fun!

Shark Bait Game– This game is good for younger kids, they take turns rolling dice and feeding their bait to the shark.

Shark Bite Game- Here is a shark game option for a little bit older shark loving kiddos.

Giant Stuffed Shark – My kids would LOVE this! It is HUGE, (over 3 feet long) and reasonable priced!

Shark Puppets- I can definitely see my kids chasing each other with these shark puppets!
