For thSwinxe Little Ones

   Swinx is a tech game without a screen, for kids ages 4-8.  The game has a base unit, plus colored bracelets that players wear to participate in tag, hide and seek, relay races, and charades, among the 25 games available (there will be more to download at swinx.com). Swinx has a rechargeable battery that lasts about 4 hours, so although the unit is rather large, it is lightweight and can easily be brought to the park.  Swinx comes with 4 bracelets, but you can get more; up to 10 kids can play at once. And some games can be played by just one kid, great for when no playdate is available. $150 at www.amazon.com.

 

 

Wonderwall Entertainment ProjectorFor Bigger Kids

   Some kids think bigger is better, but maybe you don't want to spring for a 50-inch plasma TV.  Supersize your television shows, DVDs, or Wii games with the Wonderwall Entertainment Projector. You get an image on your ceiling or wall that is 90 inches diagonal. The projector has stereo sound, a headphone jack, and a pivoting bracket so you can easily adjust the image. $149 at JCPenney.
