Holiday Gift Guide: Games, Game Systems, Apps, and RC Toys

November 25, 2012

Do you ever feel that you are constantly outfoxed, outmatched, outwitted, and outplayed by your kids? The rolling of the eyes. The “Uh, Mom I already knew that.” Or the “everyone has known that for months.” Yep, I’m not exactly cutting edge on Kid, Tween, or Teen goings on…at least not 100% of the time. I have my “things” that I keep track of…school news, friends, and anything to do with their safety, but there are tons of things I am not in the know about. Until last fall…

…when I got a peek at THE top toys for 2012. Oh yes, I did! I was finally in the know about something. And what I happen to “know” about is of GREAT interest to my kids! Score! Win!

Here’s a sneak peek at the Most Wanted List for 2012. Love this list!
