Gifts and gadgets for kids

Christmas 2012 is near, and I still don’t know what’s the best gift for my 16 years old kid. Before saying anything more you must know that this is a personal list that I think my child would love.  I’m choosing the devices on “learn &  fun” priority. So, here it is

1. Kindle Wireless Reading Device  – 2012 cheap version

Kindle from Amazon is #1 in my list for the top Gifts for Christmas 2012. I was observing kids these days, and they focus so much on technology and movies and spend so little time reading good old fashion books. We read because our lives have too little magic, wonder, heroism, laughter, or justice and I really want my child to inherit those attributes.  This amazing device from Amazon is every reader’s dream and I really think it would be the best Christmas gift for my kid. With this amazing device, my kid can access anytime up to 3500 books. Unlike LCD screens, Kindle’s screen reads like real paper, with no glare. No harm done to his eyes. With wireless off, the Kindle will last up to one month. That’s something! Oh, I forgot to tell you that has Built-In Wi-Fi. I forgot to tell you Kindle can play MP3s while you read. The cheapest price, discounts and full features for this amazing device can be found on Amazon.

2. Apple iPod touch 64 GB (4th Generation) NEWEST MODEL

The new iPod would be another amazing Gift for Christmas 2012. Talk with your friends on FaceTime app. Shoot, edit, and share stunning HD video. Play games versus friends, or unidentified foes, with the new Game Center. And do it all on the Retina display – the highest-resolution screen on any mobile device. And let’s not forget all the cool apps in iTunes store.

3. Cloud b Twilight Constellation Night Light

It’s time to transform your child’s room into a starry sanctuary that comforts him/her. This amazing device visualizes a complete starry night sky onto the walls and ceiling of any room. You have 3 projection color options blue, green, and amber to create magical, tranquil environments
This device works on three AAA batteries and has auto shut-off; 45 minutes sleep timer. Another amazing Christmas 2012 Gift.

4. Duck Hunter EXTREME Indoor/Outdoor 2 Player Radio Control Infrared Duck Hunting Game

This game is about survival, it’s you against the duck.  My kid loves video games with guns, so I guess he will really love to shoot some toy ducks in real life.  This provocative radio-control game adjudicates the battle once and for all. One player gets a safe laser blaster gun and the other gets control of the duck’s flight pattern. Although you are attempting to draw a bead on the evasive target, your adversary is making the duck zig, zag, dip and dive. A fast 10-second charge keeps the duck aloft for seven minutes unless it gets shot down. The package includes duck, infrared shooter, transmitter/charger. Requires 3 AAA and 6 AA batteries.

5. Fisher-Price The Sing-A-Ma-Jigs – Pink

Are you prepared to meet The Sing-A-Ma-Jigs, the fresh free-spirited, offbeat characters that activate unforeseen laugher and excitement with every interaction! The Sing-A-Ma-Jigs enjoy nothing more than singing jointly, and just to prove it, they harmonize with each other in perfect pitch every time. When in chatter mode they speak their own language full of jibber and jabbers.

Extra Gift Ideas for Christmas

The Vodafone 555 Blue is a non-contract Pay As You Go phone which is designed to appeal directly to heavy Facebook users on a tight budget. Whilst it doesn’t contain the bells and whistles of the market leaders, many would argue that only a fraction of features on such devices are ever used.

For a bargain phone, you may be surprised to learn it has a Blackberry style QWERTY keyboard and looks attractive in a blue and silver plastic chassis. In terms of functions, there is a Facebook key which takes you straight to your news feed, a 2 megapixel camera, and sockets include a micro SD slot and earphone jack. The phone’s menus can be navigated via the QWERTY, plus a series of five keys and navigation pad under the screen.

With only a 200MHz processor, this is not the fastest mobile on the market but the interface is intelligently designed and allows for ease of use. The menu page is customisable to an extent, although there aren’t a great deal of extra applications to play with. However, its simplicity is the strength highlighted by the contacts book which merges both SIM and Facebook contacts into one list. Messaging on this phone is intuitive and whilst the screen is only 2.4”, you aren’t going to need to squint.

On the downside, internet browsing is basic and slow, with only 2G available and no Wi-Fi, but the Opera Mini browser will allow you to view simple pages. Video capabilities are also rather poor, and it’s not possible to upload them to Facebook, as the file sizes are too big. You do get a music player, FM radio, a note editor and calculator, but the main draw is clearly the social media side of things.

Those looking for a more feature-led handset with deep Facebook integration may want to look at the HTC ChaCha, but they will need a much bigger bank balance. If you want to keep active within your social circles on the move using a simple and intuitive mobile phone system, it’s definitely worth trialling the Vodafone 555 Blue.

If you are wanting more information about this phone visit, it would be a great present for you child especially as its on pay as you go so you know they wont run up a huge phone bill.
