When it comes to my kids playing videogames, I have two simple
rules: no more than 45 minutes per day, and nothing with blood,
guts, guns, and other violent images.
That leaves out a lot of the hot new releases, like Assassin's
Creed III, Dishonored, and Halo 4. If you're a parent like me, that
can create something of a quandary this holiday season: The kids
have outgrown the educational stuff, but you'd rather not expose
them to all that realistically rendered brutality.
Fortunately, alternatives exist.
It's getting down to the wire now. Just one week until the holidays are upon us and we all inevitably pack into the nearest CVS or grocery store to pick up gift cards for all the people whose gifts won't be arriving in time. Or at least, that's how it always seems to happen for me. One minute, it's Thanksgiving and I'm totally stoked for the holiday season--I'm making my list...and then BAM, it's Christmas Eve and I've only gotten things for myself from killer Black Friday sales.
Well, not this year! This year, I'm picking up last minute gifts that sure to wow my friends and family, including a Han Solo in Carbonite Ice Tray, 2012 Bubble Calendar and the Sharp-End Dog Pencil Sharpener.
That's right. Bet you didn't see those amazing ideas coming. Blew you away with my awesomeness, didn't I?
Baseball is one of America's favorite pastimes. Kids love to play catch with their dads. Not only is it fun way to spend the afternoon but also a great way for parents to bond with their children. Gadgets sports toys make a simple game like catch even more fun-tastic and are a great gift idea for the holidays.
Way back in 1998 (How did that happen so fast?) a small
child got a personalized storybook all his own. Sure it was cute to
have his name featured in the story, but his parents immediately
thought, "We can totally do better..."
