Fun, laughter, kisses, and tantrums! Good times.
In today’s news of the obvious: kids love techie tech stuff. I bet most kids are hoping for gadgets like game consoles and iPods — pretty pricey, especially with today’s tightened budgets. My challenge, perhaps like yours, is finding exciting Christmas gifts for six nephews and nieces without breaking the bank. So I did a little research and found ten kiddie tech toys, each under $50. I have not yet purchased and experienced the toys, but I think they’re pretty cool and I’m considering them for the kids (and/or adults) in my life. If you happen to have an opinion and/or more information about any of the products below, please add your comment!
1. Scrabble Flash Cubes ($9.95): Scrabble is a board game classic but this digitized version is a great portable option. The set comes with five cubes that keep track of words and points electronically. For ages eight and up.
2. The Digi-Piggy digital coin counting bank ($14.95): This is a great little contraption for introducing kids to the habit of saving money. A little electronic screen on the pig’s snout displays the total amount of money in the bank. Every time coins are added, the screen updates. Comes in pink and white, requires AA batteries. Buy directly from the Digi-Piggy site or through Amazon. For ages three and up. Continue reading
I have four nephews and two nieces, and they mean the world to me. I have special moments with all of them. This past weekend, I developed an especially memorable bond with my two year-old nephew, Angel. His mommy (my amazing sister-in-law, Rosie) was convalescing in the hospital after giving birth to a beautiful baby boy. So by default, I became the temporary mommy figure for Angel — what an honor!
Angel is a wondrous boy: he’s fearless, funny, and goodhearted. I love him SO much.
