Teenagers, teenagers. They will surely let you know what’s on their wish list this holiday season, and it will probably come in the way of being expensive technology products like iPods, iPads, new phones, tablets, designer clothes or iTunes gift cards. As parents though, it can be so difficult to find items that we can wrap up, leave under the tree and provide an element of surprise. So what are the best toys for teenagers? This is a list of my favorite toys for teenagers.
Xbox 360 is a video game system. However, when the Kinect sensor is purchased to use in conjunction with the XBox 360, your child will literally step into the video game they are playing and their body becomes the controller.

Aside from special interest games like Special Opps and Star Wars, there are games for girls like Dance Central 3 and Dance Party 4. This system will unite the whole family in game play.
