Holiday Gift Guide - For Kids: FyrFlyz & Potato Chip Science Kit

Kids like fun. Fun can come in many ways, and here are two greats gifts that will have them enjoying the holiday season this year! First off is FyrFlys,
"FyrFlyz is the revolutionary new spinning toy where amazing LED lights shows come alive in the palm of your hands. By swinging the connected two strings and applying tension or slack, you can create a continuous movement and awesome tricks."
We received the Blue Angels FyrFlyz to review and couldn't wait until it was dark out to try it out. FyrFlyz is fun, for both kids and adults. I'm guilty of hogging it for a while as I tried out tricks to perform on it. I got the handle of easier ones like the Flywheels and Spinning Stars. Night time is best to play with them, as their color combinations create color coordinated trails of light to show off. My brother, 9, took a huge liking to the FyrFlyz and even mastered a couple new tricks of his own, but for my 5 y/o sister, it was just getting to move the light where she liked that made her happy. The FyrFlyz are available for $10 and in Blue Angels, NytFyr and Cyclone, all of which have their own unique color combinations.

Next up is for those who like to put their brains to use. If you have little scientists or inventors in the making, the Potato Chip Science Kit Bag will keep them occupied. The Bag which is "high on saturated facts" includes some items to make science experiments and a 96-page book that lays out instructions on how to do 29 experiments from Physics and Earth Science to Chemistry and Biology. The book is marketed to 8-12 year olds but I think that younger and older kids can easily get interested and help out.

My brother and sister, 9 and 5, took a huge liking to the Potato Chip Science Kit Bag. We got started on a couple of the easier experiments like the Dancing Chips, Sound Spinner and Spud Crud. My siblings liked them but are anxious to get started with the Shrunken (Potato) Head experiment, its the one that caught their attention the most. The book, aside from the experiments, has quite a lot of great facts having to do with the particular experiment at hand. Its a great read, and I think a wonderful present. Potato Chip Science received the Gold Medal from The National Parenting Publication Awards, and a Gold "Brain Child" Medal from Tillywig. Certainly great for a kid who "has everything". It retails for $14.99.
