My wife got the Christmas list for her niece, and I know I'm probably out of touch with today's youth. The niece's mother emailed the list, and it included Aliens v. Predators game (M rated of course), a Crayola Glow Board, DQ Blizzard Maker and something called bendaroos and fuzzoodles. Looking at Amazon, most of this either gets bad reviews or seems above or below her age. I'm thinking of trashing the actual list, but using the Crayola board as a starting point and doing some sort of art set. Does anyone have any suggestions of a good beginners set for that age, or am I off base here and just get something on the list, reviews aside?
