I asked him what he woule really like to have and he said an i Pod or an MP3 player for when he goes on his practice runs in the morning and after school. What would be the best brand and type to get him? I am not really concerned about the cost (With in reason). He is a great kid and deserves something nice.
What one would you pick for him? And were is the best place to buy it?
Thanks so much a head of time.
