What are some of the best gifts for kids in this holiday season? And, just as importantly, where can you find them with the click of a mouse? Wendy Israel, of Family Life
magazine, brought her picks to The Early Show.
Israel is a new mother herself, and she says the 'Net has made shopping a lot easier in this holiday season. "I don't have to put my baby in the car seat, drive to the mall, get her into a stroller, deal with the feeding and diaper change. I can do it from my own home and in my pajamas,"
Here are some of the toys Israel found, and where she found them.
