And this is Time's pick for best gift for kids this year: OSMO -- the video below explains it best..

even mute them with a flick of the wrist. Imagine walking into the room with your children and their Muggle friends watching TV, whipping out a magic wand from under your jacket and changing the channel in a flash. Why not add a magic spell into the equation to really impress them! Available on
