As the flyest FLOTUS the country has seen since Jackie Onassis, Michelle Obama was captured in her inaugural outfit by master doll creator Ashton Drake. The detail is incredibly realistic (yes, that is a picture of the DOLL) and shows off every feature we love about Michelle. This beats out one of those framed photos from the mall any day.
For parents who need to stay in touch with kids but aren’t ready to invest in a pricey smartphone, the Kurio Touch is a sure bet. It’s a phone made especially for children and it’s loaded with features that you probably didn’t even know you needed, like website filtering of questionable content.
Price: $779.99 (New customers get $200 back if they activate the Samsung Pay feature between now and January 20, 2016)
The iPhone’s biggest competitor has been the smartphones coming out through Samsung’s S series. Their most recent Galaxy S6 Edge Plus has been kept the battle alive with a stylish design and a big screen size without going overboard. Yes, it’s a big phone and it’s not the right fit for everyone but to its credit, the slimmer width keeps it from being a struggle to hold and the strong computing power makes up for the large size.
Price: $49.99 (With free shipping for the holiday)
Kidz Gear must’ve gotten a lot of feedback about their previous headphone release since they’ve come out with a wireless pair of their headset for kids. Wires and kids don’t mix well so Kidz Gear ditched the cable to let the young ones move around without a cord knocking over their juice or wrapping around their necks. The included boom mic is now detachable for when your little music lover isn’t using it.
Arguably the best sounding headphones you’ll be able to get for the price, LOLA is aimed at music lovers that want to hear every subtle note in a song without paying the hefty price audiophile headphones demand. LOLA is lightweight, comfortable and comes with a cable that allows remote control of iOS devices. They also don’t look like something you’d wear to land a plane either.
