What To Get For Christmas

Yes, I am the type of mother that is already wondering what to get my little man for Christmas. Lucky enough for me, I've narrowed it down to 3 choices:

The LeapFrog ClickStart: My First Computer. Of course this is the most reasonable, responsible choice. I think the little man would get a kick out of playing video games, and learning at the same time.


The Ultimate Dinosaur: Of course this is probably the most fun, I know I cant wait to play with it! I tested it out at Target the other day, and I must say I was pretty impressed. I might just get it for me!!!


And last, but not least, the Kid-Tough Camera: They now make it so it's water proof. My little man is always wanting to take pictures with my camera and wanting to see the pictures I've taken, so I think this would be a pretty good choice.

Did I mention that his birthday is in early jan.? I suppose we could get him all 3.

i voted the leapfrog thing because i know they can be beneficial (we own a video game store), but the dinosaur is super cool and the camera is very awesome. tough choice...get all 3 i think is the right answer and split em up for birthday and christmas.

I had an old school leapster thingy.. like it was a floppy ( i think) that ran on your computer.
I LOVED that thing!! I would be late for dinner because i was spelling words or counting. I just LOVED it!

I think that would be the most logical choice, as he thinks that he's playing but he's learning too.

that Dino looks awesome!!! I want to get 2. One for me, one for Tom and we could have Dino races! That would be awesome!

The camera is also really cool too. If he likes taking pictures it would be something he would like.

Sorry i wasn't too much of a help....

I voted for the Leap Frog. My girls have an age appropriate laptop and they love it! My second choice would be the camera knowing how much kids love cameras. I say Leap Frog for Christmas, camera for birthday, dino for you.

Luna - large, unattractive, naughty, adored

Last year he was afraid of those Imaginext Dino's... Though they were smaller than the one pictured above. He's warming up to them now tho.

Who the heck am I kidding, I know he'll get all 3. :roll: It'll just be hard to keep the Dino in the package until Christmas/his birthday.

My nephew got a leapfrog system for his birthday. If they get into it, it's crazy the amount of good things they listen to and learn without realizing it. That would be my first option.
