For snatching moments between carpools or meetings, get him a portable console: the Nintendo Switch. It’s a versatile hybrid game console that easily pivots between a big-screen TV and on-the-go portable. Its initially slim game library is now stellar and includes a good mixture of must-have Nintendo franchise like Zelda and Mario titles as well as exclusives, indie titles and even some decent PC ports.
While the app library for Oculus’ new headset is small, it’s the best wireless option available — perfect for remaining untangled in a small living room or den. But it provides an immersive VR experience with great controls and full positional tracking — no phone, PC or game console, and costs $400, which isn’t bad.

Growing up as an English speaker in the United States, I rarely thought about language. But after living and working in Costa Rica (where I met my future husband), I knew when I got pregnant that I wanted my kids to be bilingual. The second my first daughter was born, I instituted a no-English-at-home rule. I didn’t realize it at the time, but this meant adding a whole new level of difficulty to my life as a brand-new mom.
