Gadgets and gizmos with high tech appeal for kids

1. X32X-2 WristLinx Two-Way Wristwatch Radios

We like that these two-way wristwatch radios are better than your usual toy walkie-talkies and are a great play value for the price.

2. Philips 3MP Retro Style Ultra-Thin Camera

The Fisher-Price digital camera is fine for preschoolers, but kids in elementary school like the real thing. Look for holiday specials on lower-end digital cameras and gear out with an SD card and inexpensive card reader for your computer. This $60 camera is just one example of what you might find for a first digital camera for your young elementary age child.
