I can see on Amazon that there are lots of them and have found lists of what order they were written in but was wondering if it matters what order they are read in, or if anyone can recommend the best series?

It doesn't matter what order the books are read in, as they all contain different characters and stories. That said, there are a few sequel types (like Night of the Living Dummy II). They should probably be read in order, although I can't remember for sure whether the characters are the same.
As for the different series, I can't really answer that because I only read the original series. Perhaps he could start with those if they're easily available?
I hope Robbie enjoys them! My friend's son read them around the same age and he loved them. I still have all of my Goosebumps books (about 30 or so, I think) all of these years later. They're awesome.

I really liked the Goosebumps books when I was a child, and I enjoy them as an adult too (though that's probably part nostalgia). I don't have as many as Kylie, I have about 15 of them (all but one are Dutch translations). I used to loan some from the library when I was a child, and I read my sister's Goosebumps books too. I used to watch the Goosebumps TV series when it was on TV, I quite liked that show as a child / young teenager. Not all the books were translated into Dutch.
I hope Robbie enjoys whichever book he tries! I hope to see the Goosebumps movie some day, I'm glad to hear he liked it and that it inspired him to want to try a book.

We all enjoyed the movie and even commented that it was rather scary (in a good way) for a PG, , my 17 year old was rather freaked out by a freaky clown!

I can't stand clowns either - it's called coulrophobia, I loathe them! Apparently it's quite common.

I loved 'Welcome to Dead House' and 'Phantom of the Auditorium' when I was a kid
