Christmas is fast approaching and we all know that we are running out of ideas for people on our lists. My husband is particularly difficult to shop for.

Today’s children are digital natives who view drones as normal as their parents did paper airplanes. I have tried out several drones; various offerings seem to have different strengths and weaknesses. One particularly convenient offering is the Pocket Drone from Odyssey Toys – it is small enough to literally fit into a jacket pocket, relatively inexpensive (it sells for a little over $90 on Amazon), and has a built in high-definition camera and advanced controls including auto-hover, so if you are traveling for the holidays or going on a vacation and want to bring a drone for your children (or for you) to use while away, this one seems like a good choice.
