It seems big kids have a language all their own. Don’t you sometimes wish you could get inside their heads to find out what they’re really thinking? At holiday time, especially, you want to totally nail it -- scoring gifts that rock. Lucky for you, we know about the stuff big kids have been thinking about all year long. The look on your kid's face will simply say: Awesome!

Solar Rainbow Maker
Curious minds will love catching these rays. The rainbow maker (David Dear, $28) hangs in any window and when the Swarovski crystal reflects the sunlight, the room’s walls fill with rainbows.

The best part:
Solar energy, not batteries, powers the magic, so your gift is as environmentally friendly and educational as it is cool.
