Fire 7 Tablet with Alexa

Phoebe loves reading ebooks and listening to audiobooks and the Kindle Fire is versatile enough for both, plus games and more. She’s had Kindles before but is in need of an upgrade, plus it comes in her favorite color Tardis blue.

– Jamee Thumm, mom to Phoebe (11 yrs)

Roominate Emma's Townhouse

This wired building set will tap into Lillian’s science side while boosting her creativity. With 125 pieces, she can build her townhouse however she wants, add stickers and use the working motor to power a ceiling fan or other parts of her design. I love that it will develop her problem-solving skills and introduce her to the world of engineering.

– Michelle Leon, mom to Lillian (11 yrs)

Alex Spa Sketch It Nail Pens Salon

Have a budding artist at home? This fabulous nail art kit will allow her to create custom nail designs using professional grade nail polish. First, she’ll apply a coat of colored nail polish, allow it to dry, then select a nail applique, apply it to her nails, and use the 5 Sketch It nail pens to color in the design. She can also add one of the 135 nail gems for a bit of sparkle!

Watch Ya Mouth

Looking for a gift that your girl can enjoy with the whole family? Watch Ya Mouth is the hilarious party game where players wear cheek retractors and try to pronounce funny phrases like “Warm Beef Meatballs” while teammates guess what they’re saying. That is if they can talk at all through the giggles. The original game includes 143 family-safe phrases and 10 cheek retractors.

Nancy B's Science Club Microscope and Activity Journal

Future scientists will love using this microscope for hands-on science experiments. She’ll be able to collect specimens, magnify them up to 400x and perform activities using tweezers, petri dishes, scalpels and other scientific tools. The activity journal encourages independent, parent-free learning and captures all of her findings for safekeeping.
