  2. The folding lap desk is genius! I wish I had something like this when I was in school. I can still use it now though but I am sure that my nephews will enjoy it more than I am. The Anti laptop theft backpack is awesome as well. The usb charging port is a nice touch. The backpack is very affordable as well, only $24 cannot believe it. As for the rest of the list, I guess my nephews have to really behave then I might consider buying them all the cool stuff. Thanks again for the ideas.
