Scooters are a great gift idea for kids, the pocket mod scooter is just like a miniature Vespa and girls love it.

The kinect will be a hot gift for kids but really for the whole family as it is a very social way to play computer games. I think it's superior to the wii and move because it doesn't require a controller.

I think the 1foot/3feet rule is a little too much. I have my screen about 4 inches from the ceiling and 31 inches from the floor and I don't feel reflections from my flat black ceiling. My screen is 130" and my ceiling height is 8ft. I however can't imagine going down to 96" to satisfy that rule. I have one row in my theatre though. May be that is why it is okay!
