Top Holiday Gifts For Grade Schoolers? Is This Accurate?
Today I'm off on another Readin', Writin, and Rhymin' Tour . I'm going to Yates Magnet School in Schenectady. This is a return visit for me. Always have a good time there. But this time I'm trying a grand experiment!
I keep seeing these websites, magazine articles and the like telling us what the most popular Christmas gifts are for different age groups . Here's an example. I got on Gifts.com yesterday, and they listed what they consider their top picks. Here are a few:
And there are many more on there. So here's what I'm doing. I am asking the Yates kids in advance to list the toys that they want for Christmas, and we're going to make a song out of it. I will then compare and contrast with this list and see if the adult marketers know kids well enough. This will be fun. I'll let you know the results!
