The Spright move is on the cutting edge of laser and holographic technology, creating an effortless new way for showcasing rooftop, nativity, or other scenes and transforming them into breathtaking holiday displays in just a few minutes.

Dareway (Segway for kids)
Think of a Segway for adults, then think of a smaller and safer version for kids and you've got the Dareway! Until now, ride-ons for kids were pretty much mini-cars for tots to putter around in. Kids ages 5 and older really didn't have many choices for ride-on fun until they'd hit electric scooters or dirt bikes. Famosa's Dareway fills the gap, and now kids ages 6 to 10 have a super fun, super cool ride-on to call their own! www.ridedareway.com.

Featuring a red velvet cover, a gold reading ribbon and a privacy clasp, this book is the perfect Christmas classic for the holiday season. Little ones will fall in love with Molly McAme and the magical story of Christmas forgiveness! Such a remarkable treasure that lifts your spirit and reminds us of the joy of the holiday season!
