    I see where you are coming from, and I see why you are concerned, however, if that's what he wants for Christmas, I would say he probably won't use any of the sporty type stuff and it would probably be a waste of money?

    What about one of those adventure things from red balloon or something? Might spark an interest in him to do something other than play games all day?

    Does he have a backyard? What about a basketball hoop, totem tennis or a soccer goal?

    I bought my ds a backyard warrior set which includes a vacuum thingy to catch bugs and lizards without touching them and a habitat with a light so he can keep them and observe them for a while. I always try and get him off his iPod or away from the tv and outside riding his bike/scooter or doing something active in the sunshine. He's a really skinny kid so it's not for exercise but more for general health. We have a few lizards, grasshoppers and some big huntsman spiders in our sorry excuse for a backyard (we live in the city cbd) and I'm hoping the backyard warrior kit will spark his interest in the outdoors.

    But like any kid he likes technology so No doubt he will receive a few app vouchers from family as that's what his asked for.

    Our gifts are always usually outdoor fun stuff, books, tickets to go places or practical items like clothes etc. Its very rare for me to ever buy electronics or dvds etc unless its a documentary. I am thinking about buying a digital camera as a combined pressent for our family though as I think it would be really well used and I could teach ds a thing or two .

    Dd is still young but I avoid things like leap pads etc. and much prefer to get outside toys. I'm pretty big on children getting outside and using energy. Sports will be strongly encouraged in our house.
