i-Wood Laptop by Bea Seggering & Donkey Creative Lab

iwoodI told my son that he was getting a laptop for his birthday this year and he got pretty excited. Although, I can’t wait to see the look on his face when he opens up the box and sees this laptop inside. This i-Wood Laptop, designed by Bea Seggering & Donkey Creative Lab, should give him endless hours of fun and where the only limit is his imagination. Not exactly sure how he’s going to download his League of Legends onto this but the most important thing is that Daddy kept his promises. A word of warning, this is intended for kids who are at least 3 years old and, if he or she is older, make sure the kid has a good sense of humor. Also, never try this on your spouse, or else she won’t be your spouse for too long afterwards.

MSRP:  $61.00USD
