  • LaTrax SST 4WD 1/18 Scale RC Truck 

Description: Don’t let its size fool you. The LaTrax SST truck takes the fun of off-road truck racing and packs it into a convenient, take-anywhere, 1/18 scale size. This is a perfect gift for any birthday boy or girl! It’s built to be fast, nimble, and extremely durable to withstand the rigors of all-terrain racing. And with all-weather electronics, it’ll drive through puddles, mud, and even snow. 

Price: $199.99 CAD

Our thoughts: O.k. seriously this truck looks amazing.  I love that this is an all-weather race truck that can survive water, mud and can be used outside. My boys would love to play with an LaTrax truck, I only worry about them arguing because they have to take turns playing with it.

  • Fuji FinePix XP80 Waterproof/Shockproof/Wi-Fi 16.4MP 5x Optical Zoom Digital Camera

Description:The Fujifilm FinePix XP80 16.4MP digital camera is there to capture every moment of your child’s birthday. This camera is designed to withstand any elements, and comes equipped with Wi-Fi so you can easily shoot pictures and movies remotely, and share them using your smartphone or tablet. 

Price: $189.99 CAD

Our thoughts: If your child is ready for a camera then this would be a perfect gift idea. They get a waterproof and shockproof camera with all the bells and whistles to get creative and take awesome photos, plus they can shoot pictures and transfer to their phone or tablet wirelessly.

  • Osmo Starter Kit 

Description: Do something different for your child’s birthday and encourage the kids to get creative and socially interact with Osmo. It is a gaming accessory for the iPad and comes with 4 games that will change the way your child plays. This innovative gaming system expands gameplay beyond the screen by turning any physical object into a digitally connected game piece.

Price: $99.98 CAD

Our thoughts: Nowadays kids are all for technology related gifts! I personally love the Oslo gaming accessory because children can use it with their iPad and it is a great way to encourage them to get creative with educational games. Besides games like Tangram and other puzzles are great for the brain.
