Unbelievable “suggested Christmas shopping list” circulating on the net

Moderation might be a thing of the past, even though we’re still coming out of the slowest recovery from a recession in history.

Here’s the suggested list for kids 10 and up:

Beats by Dr Dre audio accessories (Apple) – standard headphones start at $169.99
Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel Super Heroes (Disney Interactive) – starter pack: $74.99
Galaxy Tab tablets (Samsung) – starting at $159.99
GoPro cameras (GoPro) – starting at $199.99
iPad (Apple) – starting at $499.99
iPhone (Apple) – starting at $99.99
MiP Robot (WowWee) – $99.99
PlayStation 4 Console (Sony) – $399.99
SIMON Swipe Game (Hasbro) – $15.19
Skylanders Trap Team (Activision) – starter pack: $99.99
Xbox One Console (Microsoft) – $399.99

Despite the sticker shock, I know parents who already have made some of these purchases and are likely to round out the list in time for the holidays.

So, I have to hear my envious kids complain again this year.

I remember getting mostly clothes for Christmas presents! I wonder if and how my parents would have handled the Holidays if high-priced, high-tech gizmos were available 30 years ago.
