Mom, this bike is really nice and all, but I really wanted a virtual bike!
WFT is wrong with kids these days??
Wednesday, Toys R Us announced that "app-cessories" are one of 2011's hottest holiday toy trends.
What's that? You don't think your young child should have an iPad or iPod? Sorry, but Toys R Us VP, Troy Peterson, says you're wrong. He says:
"Even a 4-year-old can play on these devices without training. We'll be going out more aggressively because demand is developing quickly."
Some of the top apps for include: Cars 2app — $19.99; Arcade app — $99.99; Helicopter app — $49.99; and the Crayola app — $29.99 (six times more than a $4.99 Crayola 64 box of crayons).
FYI: Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" initiative recommends no screen time for children under age 2.
