What are the Best Games / Electronics / Gadgets for Kids in 2017?

I get asked this question a lot: “What should I get my (6-11) year old this holiday season?” I think I get the question a lot because of this blog. Friends of the family seem to turn to my Mom a lot and ask her, “your kids (in our 30s, mind you) play games a lot so what should I get my kid?”

Since I’ve been married for almost 3 years, I’m also getting the question from extended family a lot. In the past couple of years its been easy to say something like Skylanders or Disney Infinity, but this year I’m lacking ideas for kids other than things like Mario Odyssey and obviously a Switch for those games.

I’d like to solicit help from those of you with kids (or maybe you’re like me and a big kid at heart) for ideas that I can share with them. I’d love to hear what your kids are into, whether it’s toys, gadgets, or games. I’ll pass the info along to the 10 or so people in my life begging to be that cool parent this season. Thanks for the help!
