Being a mom of two teen sons and Aunt to 4 nephews, they are confusing lil' boogers for holiday gift giving. So, I asked them what the “cool kids” are wanting this year for Christmas, in hopes to help you, folks, out.
The kids are on top of what they want/need for Christmas sometimes more than “consumer marketing” so that's why I asked for their input this year.
My youngest tends to be the one that knows the “stuff” that's popular so I consulted him a little more this year than I have in the past. Kids today are so picky.

Can you make a match?
Everything is ducky when Mama Duck has her ducklings in a row. But when players ﬂip over a duck pond token that matches the last duckling in line, they call out ‘Duck-a-roo!' and swim it to the front. If they don't make a match they flip it back over.
Play continues until there's one token left, and Mama swims back to the front of the line. Players count up their tokens to see who wins in this educational game of memory and color matching.
