The following Holiday Gift Guide Ideas for Tween Boys will help you to knock out the tween boys on your Christmas shopping list this year. I have a tween and a teen so this is kind of old hat to me. 🙂 In addition to the normal video games and colognes, my boys would ave loved any of the following items!
Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Reality Shock!
Prepare for a dose of shock and “awwww” from Ripley Publishing’s new book Reality Shock!.
With all new content Reality Shock! is a mix of “can’t bear to look, but can’t look away” stories, people, facts and photos. It’s just the ticket for teens and tweens, whether they’re reluctant readers or constant page-turners.
Reality Shock! delivers strange stories, bizarre bits and twisted tales like only Ripley’s Believe It or Not! can. The content ranges from cute to creepy; what’s “great!” to one reader is just plain “gross!” to another – that’s part of the fun of Reality Shock!
Reality Shock! makes the perfect holiday gift for any kid. They’ll love pouring over the weird, bizarre and fun stories from around the world – and relish the opportunity to gross out parents and friends. Mom and dad will be happy to see their child with a book that they can’t put down, and will likely be unable to resist the urge to flip through a few pages themselves.

Infinite Scuba is a fantastic new family-friendly video game that enables players to experience the thrills, mysteries and beauty of diving in the Earth’s oceans from their own home. It’s Indiana-Jones-meets-Jacques Cousteau: wildly fun, mysterious, and enlightening. This captivating game from Cascade Game Foundry, an independent game development studio, allows young children to adult diving enthusiasts to either play for fun – or to begin to think and act like a diver. We have seen toddlers love just playing to look at the beautiful pictures, to kids playing who love the seas, to adults playing who love to dive. Infinite Scuba is a downloadable diving game that realistically simulates what divers do – explore underwater sites, identify wildlife, take photos, and find artifacts, while learning about history and dive science. This is also challenging video game that is non-violent, yet exciting. Gift cards for the game with an activation code are available.
