    If you are looking for some holiday inspiration, this really is

    If you are looking for some holiday inspiration, this really is a cool book! Instead of just sticking a check in an envelope as a gift for a niece or nephew, here are all sorts of suggestions for boys, girls, and big kids too. The best part is you can see every possible toy by clicking on the links. You go to the website and you can search around and even buy the gift without leaving home. If you want to buy a present, but don't know a lot about what's out there, give this book a whirl!

    I was not sure what to buy my 6-year-old goddaughter. I knew she

    I was not sure what to buy my 6-year-old goddaughter. I knew she liked to play with stuffed animals, but I figured how many teddy bears does  one kid need! This book showed me all the different kinds of stuffed toys there are. Not just the kind that you put on a bed or on a shelf. There are ones that  go in purses or are part of backpacks. There are so many new things since I was a kid. I  liked how I could read about the products and then click on the links to see the companies. This was helpful.
