The MiP has several different modes that include games and tricks, plus a balancing tray that is great for delivering soda cans to your older brother. You can use hand gestures or the free app on your phone to control it's movements, so it's pretty user-friendly.
It's super easy to use and set up, but has enough play options to keep my kids entertained for several hours. It also has funny little noises it makes while it plays, which are amazingly cute and NOT annoying compared to most electronic toy sounds.
At around $100, it's not a cheap gift. But if you want to be a hit over the holidays, plus give your kids something to do while you listen to Great Aunt Sheila's stories (again) at the big family party, it's totally worth it.
You can find MiP at most major retailers or by clicking on this link.
