Stocking Stuffers for Girls and Boys:

20Q: The next generation of the game 20 questions will amuse you, spook you and might be smarter than you.  This small electronic game fits in the palm of your hand or even in your pocket. The game will ask you to think of something and answer the questions yes, no, rarely or sometimes, or skip the question then it’ll read your mind in 20 questions or less.  It has a bigger screen than previous models and special light effects. Batteries are included for demonstration purposes and has an on and off switch to preserve battery life.  It comes in  red, pink or blue colors. I even had playing with this — and it guessed my answer.

WARNING: Players must be able to read to play this game or have an older person read the questions to a non-reading player.

Cost: $12.99

Annoying Orange 2 1/2 Inch Talking PVC Figure Laughing Orange ($10): The talking Annoying Orange 2″ specialty size figure is fresh squeezed comedy in your hand.  The crazy Kitchen Crew Collectibles will have your kids laughing. The crew is made up of Smilin’ Orange, Laughing Orange, Pear, and Midget Apple. They all talk and will make you laugh. Annoying Orange is cute and annoying, just what every kids loves. Some might think he is just a royal pain in the behind. Call him what you like, just DON’T call him an apple because he hates that.  Push the button on the bottom of him and he will say something like, ” Hey you know what they call cheese that isn’t yours? Nacho Cheese, hahahahahah.” Some of his lines are funny and my 9, 6 and 4 1/2 year old love hearing what he has to say at the push of a button.  They watch his short movies on YouTube as well. Harmless humor, just listen to it in another room please, because it is annoying.

Uncle Milton’s Solar Racers: This is a great car. The best feature is that it is 100% sum powered! It has real solar cells and it is great for outdoor racing.  Just take this micro machine outside, place it in the sun and let it rip.  They are not intended for indoor light sources and they work best on hard, flat, smooth surfaces.
