Best Buy Has Great Gifts for Kids

When we think Best Buy, we often think of toys for the big boys but you'd be amazed at all the great stuff you'll find for even the littlest one on you holiday gift list this season.  

Of course they have lots of great electronics, as you might suspect, even for the young tech lover.  Some that we love in our house are the InnoTab 2 from VTech and the LeapPad 2 from LeapFrog. Both of these are great for little hands who want to play with a tablet but aren't quite ready to handle the more expensive technology just yet.  We own both of these kid friendly tablets and have blogged about both, but I think its a matter of personal preference on which I'd go with.  Check my post on them (Innotab 2 and LeapPad 2) or click on the product titles below for product details from to learn more about which would be right for you.

Vtech - Innotab 2S Interactive Learning Tablet

Make learning a fun, interactive experience for your child with this Vtech Innotab 2S 80-156800 tablet that features a 5" color touch screen for simple navigation and wireless connectivity for downloading hundreds of apps


LeapFrog - LeapPad2 Explorer

Help your child have fun while developing his or her skills in reading, art and more with this LeapFrog LeapPad2 Explorer 32610 tablet that features a 5" touch screen for simple control. Front and rear cameras let you capture clear photos and videos.

If you're giving electronics of any kind, tablet, MP3 player etc, you'll want to be sure to grab some headphones or earbuds to go with it.  Personal electronics are great to keep the kids busy, especially when you need them to settle down and be quiet for a bit but that point is sort of lost if the noise is just now coming from another source.  Grab a pair of comfy ear buds like these from Skull Candy and you'll be able to enjoy the quiet! There are tons of types of earbuds and headphones available and I'm sure style and fit preferance vary a lot but I LOVE Skull Candy ear buds and clearly my kids do too because I can never find mine.  If you're buying headphones be sure to use the coupon at the bottom of this post to get an additional 10% until 12/29/12.

Skullcandy - Ink'd 2 Earbud Headphones

Enjoy your music with these Skullcandy Ink'd 2 S2IKDY-101 earbud headphones that feature Supreme Sound technology for rich, high-quality audio. The in-line microphone and controls offer easy operation of volume and other features. 

For me, buying for my kids is never hard.  It's actually the stopping shopping that I have a problem with, seriously you should see the stack of boxes in my bedroom thanks to my online shopping this year.  But it can be harder to buy for kids you don't know as well.  You can count on video games like Skylanders Giants, Just Dance 4 or Halo 4 being big hits but it's so hard to know if they already have them or even what game system they have or use.  You can always go with a gift card, trust me older kids will never turn their noses up at the chance to pick out their own gifts.  But if you're the type that links to have wrapped gift to give, I found a few fun gifts at that would be fun to give to any kid.  I especially love these for grab bag type gifts because they are gender neutral and can be given to anyone.
