T-shirts ali !!! Kids love them!

You can get some pretty good deals on them at that ABC shop inside Planet Hollywood, Fremont Street or even in Walgreens. They all have "Las Vegas" on them and you can pick out a special one for each child!

Go to the world's largest gift shop on the Strip at Sahara, cater-cornered to the Sahara Hotel. They have everything. And remember, Las Vegas doesn't mean much to kids. They like small gadgets and toys. In fact they might throw the toy away and play with the box if they are very young. Kids just like it that you thought of them.

I think the poker chips would be appreciated even by adults. Tell em its their good luck piece to carry with them at all times. What a great idea. AND, they come in all gift giving denominations. AND they will think of you every time they need a little luck.

Rep up jfkIII

Darn, they wouldn't let me rep you dude.

Thanks, doubleR-quadA...

not to mention that they are nice and light to transport through airports, etc. One could even mix them up a bit from different casinos, just taking a nice stroll up and down the strip (you know how possessive kids get...this makes sure that each kids get his own personal chip and cannot be mistaken by others that it is theirs). Great price, too.

The chips are such a great idea, maybe we can start a thing where they become the "in" thing. We could start a rumor that every cool kid needs the complete set of $5 chips representing every casino in Las Vegas and then under pressure, every parent that visits will also kick up the economy by hitting every casino before they return home to complete their collection.

That is just so funny. "Training the gamblers of tomorrow."

We (you) have now solved the financial crisis of Las Vegas. Quick someone call the Mayor and the (whatever the name is of that Las Vegas promotional board).

Taxes will go down and we'll all be out of debt in no time.

Ah, but this is Las Vegas. It's not gambling, it's gaming.
