The Gift of Giving

By Steven Elias Cortez,

During the holidays, family and children come together to celebrate many different things, but also to exchange gifts that were made, reused, or purchased. Gifts for getting the family together and toys that the whole family can enjoy make the holidays truly enjoyable.

This year, for me, two of those toys are the Syma S107 Mini RC Helicopter for boys and the Barbie Dolled up Nails Digital Nail Printer for girls. While the helicopter includes technology which is fantastic, requiring no assembly from mom and dad on Christmas morning, the best part is that this toy is suitable to fly indoors, keeping the boys occupied during those snow days and bringing the family together to have flights around the house.

With the girlish Barbie Dolled Up Nails Digital Nail Printer, professional designs can be printed from the home computer after your girls have created and customized the perfect designs making it a great game to enjoy together with siblings or with parents. Since you can upload your own photos and make designs for special occasion, taking photos or browsing through family photos can provide great reminders about the times spent together while creating great memories in the present.

The children are not the only ones who should benefit from toys. As far as the family is concerned, my family especially enjoys the Settlers of Catan board game. A good old-fashioned board game, this offers a means of bringing the family together in lieu of getting caught up in the mess of wrapping paper and decorations. First published in Germany back in 1995, this game offers a family-prone game which does not focus on eliminating other players as the game is played, but rather on each individual reaching their goals.

Take advantage of this holiday season with only the best games to bring the family together!
