Present for not so active 8 year old

I told my 8 year old no games this Christmas so what are some good outdoor or interactive things I can buy that'll get him up and moving around? I'm thinking a hoverboard, but I need more ideas.

    It's too cold right now to do anything outside. I was mainly talking about Christmas presents

    Skateboard, bicycle, rollerblades, trampoline, laser tag set... Legos work his mind. My son builds some crazy inventive stuff with them.

    I’m not sure a hover board to use inside is the best thing. That’s just asking for hitting your head on a table edge or something. Don’t know how much space you have. But we have one of those mini trampolines for our 5 year old in our cellar play area. If you have the space, that’s an option. When we say no games, are talking about video games? Board games? If I had to make a suggestion for a video game, I would recommend Just Dance. They come out every year. It sounds like you have a Wii. So you can get it for the Wii. It gets you up and moving. It’s something the whole family can do together. My wife and I used to get it every year before we got married. The last two years, we decided to start picking it up again

    A hover ball soccer disc is a good thing to get him moving if you have the space for it.

    Search on Groupon for some fun experiences instead? My nephew is 10 and he is obsessed with games and has a million toys so this year I got him and a friend a pass to the trampoline park for a day. Toys get so old!
