Some days........somedays it's like a light is switched on in my head....I did a search for "gifts for 9 year old boys" and I found a great site....the other site was listed on ds' "snap circuits jr" box.
it's amazing....it will categorize by age/sex/occasion ..... so not just for boy/girl christmas/bday....also for reunion/wedding/bat mitzvah etc. on my search for toy for 9 year old boy it gave me over 1000 gift ideas.
this one is a little harder....I couldn't find a way to categorize the gift ideas by age.....they seem to be all jumbled together....but it's a great site none the less. It's along the lines of the "today's parent' best kids toys.
