The great big Amazon December Toy Clearance isn’t quite here, yet, but I’m seeing rumblings. Price drops are beginning. I’m getting excited.
In the meantime, if you have an early elementary child who needs a little math practice (or a teacher for whom a classroom game would be a great gift), may I suggest Sum Swamp? It’s down to just $8, with great reviews. And it’s totally justifiable because it’s educational, too.
And then, if you’re very lucky, someday you’ll have a nearly-teen like mine. You know, one who says all she wants for Christmas is an iPod Touch, but—failing that—she’ll take a pair of fake Uggs and a scientific calculator. (Hey, even nerdlings need to keep their feet warm.)
