Just about everybody knows about the Apple iPad 2 which retails for more than $500, but Amazon’s Kindle Fire just hit the market at $199. It’s a little smaller than the iPad 2 and has less memory, but at that price it’s a steal.
If you already have an iPhone or iPad, you’ll need a protective cover. An Etch A Sketch case may be just what you need.
If you really want to make someone jump, get a HexBug. These robotic bugs react to light, sound and touch, while others can be remote controlled. Most cost less than $20.
