Stumped on what to get the kid who has everything? Well I have you covered. As fun as it is to pick out adorable dresses and light up toys, the kids don’t need any of those extra things, nor do their parents want to deal with them. What do parents and kids BOTH want? Something fun to bond over and make memories with—all within your price range, of course.
