Best Toys for Teenagers

Kids ages 13+

What do you buy for those teenagers in your life, other than a gift card, camera, cell phone, television, iPad, iPhone, iPod or a gaming device like a Nintendo Wii or an Xbox Kinect? This could be the most difficult age group to buy for, but there are some great interactive games, sporting activities and toys for teens that will be sure to bring some fun and excitement to the entire family.

This party game allows one person to be a judge and pick a "To-Do List" that includes 3 different ideas, one suggestion being climbing Mount Everest. The players then hold advice cards. With the roll of a dice players will be encouraged to give the judge the worst advice, best advice, or advice a grandmother, child, or psychic would provide. The judge rates the advice, and the person who provides the best answer gets the most points.
