Shopping for someone special can be easy or it can be hard. Having a few age appropriate ideas in mind are always helpful. I’m a mom. I have four children. Boys ages 2 1/2, 5 yrs old and 21(that’s not a typo). My daughter is 10 yrs old. Of course it wouldn’t be right of me to make suggestions toward ages I don’t know anything about, but as you see my children pretty much cover a wide range of ages and because of this I know what intrigues their interest. Now we all know children are individual’s and not all children like the same things, but atleast if we get some fun ideas and suggestions to what Toys keep children’s interest and last through out the years without getting tossed in a toy box after 2 days we can hope that the child we are shopping for finds interest in items suggested in a Holiday Gift Guide geared toward their age groups. Sometimes it’s not always the Hottest selling item on the market but a toy that a child just falls in live with or learn from that can make a gift worth giving.
Many items that I suggest have already been reviewed and used by me or a member of my family. Items that we have grown to love. Hope this will help you find gifts that will make other’s just as happy or find useful as we do.

Exergen Temporal Scanner has put many a worried night to rest with being able to check temperatures while my children sleep. With the fall weather and winter quickly approaching colds and illness are hard to avoid. When children get sick you want to make sure your calling your doctor with an accurate temperature even if it’s an middle of the night reading. Touching with the palm of the hand doesn’t give you an accurate temperature reading. The Exergen Temporal scanner offers peace of mind with accurate temperature readings within 0.2 degree’s. Measures the body temperature by taking the temporal artery reading. See full my review with more information.

MobiGo Touch Learning System has been a daily popular game with both my boys ages 2 1/2 and 5. We now have over 4 games for the MobiGo touch learning system including the original that came with the system: Super Hero Squad Sports Hero, Shrek Forever After, and Toy Story 3. Not only are they educational but it keeps children occupied and not fighting in the car and doctor’s office. Games offer other ideas for family to buy gifts for my kids. We also have the VTech V-smile Motion which my boys play when we are home. We have added to our collection over the last year and now have several Vtech V.Smile V.Motion Games including Mickey Mouse, Cars, Thomas the Train and Handy Manny, too. I love that they offer educational fun along with family fun when we take turns playing against each other.
