Play and Develop Skills

What to get the Tween, if not the Twilight USB drive mentioned two posts down? How about this, if she or he loves fashion or is a budding entrepreneur?

First you have to have the multi-function purse size Nintendo DS, which plays games and also is a music player and digital camera. You can find it new at places like Walmart and I imagine Target etc... but since they are in the $170 rangeyou could also find some gently used at Amazon and on Ebay for much less...

Then add the Style Saavy game for $30, your kid can spend hours learning to be an entrepreneur or stylist to be. The game puts her/him as the owner of a boutique, where they do the buying, mixzing and matching of trendy fashions and accessories, looking after a stream of customers and watching the funds.

Ya' know, instead of a game where you pretend to own a business, why not actually make it a reality?

My kids, ages 8 and 11, started and are running profitable businesses by using the Biz in a Boxx guidelines.

I bought the products at www.bizinaboxx.com for under $50 and never had to lift a finger. The kids had everything they needed included in the boxxes to be successful young entrepreneurs.

They are making their own money and having a blast doing it alone and with their friends.

This is a great product that works in the real world.
