CHECKING IT TWICE: I realize that there's something a little more "receivey" than "givey" in posting here just to ask for offspring-gift-selection advice, but I strongly suspect that many would benefit from some ideas for what to buy the ThingThrowers of the future. So my own question follows, and I appreciate any and all ideas, but please do feel free to use the comments to seek and/or dispense wisdom on Festive Winter Holiday gifts more generally.* (Yes, yes, I know, Thanksgivukkah is sweeping the nation, but it's just too forced. Except for Gobble Tov. Which is awesome.)
My quandary: Cosmo Girl (age 10) will be receiving an electronic gift with a high wow factor for Christmas. (Hint: it starts with an i and is a phone.) Cosmo Boy (age 7) will not be receiving a similar high-wow-factor-possessing electronic gift and will no doubt be bummed about it. I need suggestions for amazing gifts for boys in the 7-10 age range, so that Cosmo Boy's lack of fabulous electronica this Christmas will not unduly sadden him. Any ideas?
* I suggest not using the comments to solicit gift ideas for your significant other if said significant other is a Thrower of Things, because that would be dumb.
