Still Need Something for Junior?

These awesome toys are imported from Japan. Unfortunately for some, the instructions are in Japanese only - are you up for a challenge?

The toys contain small parts and is not suitable for young children. How young?  Well, it's hard to tell, exactly.  Amazon says they should be more than 3 years old; the manufacturer says 15.  I'd say that if you're giving this to a child between the ages of 3 and 15, there'd better be adult supervision.

Gift wrapping is not available for this product.

Watch Your Christmas Movies Anywhere

You say that the kids get bored or fight in the car on the way to your parents' house for Christmas?

At a resort or the cottage for the holidays this year, with no TV and you can't 'do' Christmas without watching It's a Wonderful Life?

Your teenager has to have an electronic device in his/her hands at all times, or she/he refuses to go with you for the holidays?

Well, this Sylvania 7" widescreen portable DVD player may just be the answer to your problem.

Available in blue or black (get one for each child - no fights!), you can watch and listen your favourite formats - DVD, DVD+/-RW, CD, CD-R/RW, MP3 music burned onto CD-R/RW, JPEG photos burned onto CD-R/RW

Yes, your teen can rock the DVD player, hear all the latest downloaded tunes and watch his or her downloaded videos. That's a little bit of heaven right there for somebody.

Put all this together with a USB port, AC and vehicle power adapters, rechargeable batter, built-in stereo speakers, remote control, carrying bag and more and I think this could be the thing that helps you out. Oh yeah, and it's lots of fun.

So, go ahead and burn that copy of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas for the kids. They can watch during the trip to your mom and dad's house. If they fall asleep, simply turn the screen towards you and you can watch it. :)

It's very versatile and makes a terrific last minute gift!

Hey, Herald. What a neat way to tie up Christmas, with presents from Amazon. I really liked the small segments with the balancing ads on the right and the Christmas holly dividing each segment. You're doing good work. I like your Hubs. Don White
