Many Nebraskans are pinching pennies in a tough economy and with Christmas right around the corner many have to make many wise choices when choosing gifts for their children. Technology expert James Oppenheim (OP-PIN-hime) says one option is to select a game that can be played by the entire family. He says there is a huge emphasis on fitness right now and he recommends a dance game.
James Oppenheim, technology expert; "playing together."
He says there are many dance games available for all systems. He says competitive sports and racing games are another family friendly option because several people can play at once.
It looks like electronic toys and gadgets are replacing tinker toys, dolls and footballs on Nebraska kids Christmas lists. Does this mean traditional toys are on the way out? Technology expert James Oppenheim says not really but toy manufacturers are going to have to make the "smarter" to keep up. He says one of the biggest trends is packages that mix toys like collectible figures with video game play.
Oppenheim; "the 21st century."
Oppenheim says many parents are having to stretch their budget this year and are looking more for "family" gifts instead of individual ones. He says a great option here is a family friendly dance or competitive sport video game.
There are many new gadgets available this holiday season and one is extremely helpful for kids struggling with school. Technology expert James Oppenheim says the wi-fi pen is just the ticket.
Oppenheim; "when you wrote it."
Oppenheim says families looking to stretch their dollars this holiday season should consider family friendly options like dance or competitive sports video games.
