It feels like summer just started and already the sound of school bells is calling the kids back from summer camp to the school room. We’ve got all sorts of Back to School goodness going on, like our Dorm Checklist for college freshman and our “Back to Cool” Guide filled with our favorite picks for every age.

While the kids are gearing up for the Fall, the Guru’s are doing some homework of their own and getting ready for the New York International Gift Show, which is exactly what it sounds like, a lot of gifts! The Guru’s have been all over the place this summer, with Guru Dan reporting back on the Outdoor Retailer’s Expo, and yesterday’s exciting Nerf launch.

But with so many gifts, our team can’t manage to find ALL the good stuff that’s out there, so sometimes we leave it up to other experts, like our Guest Guru’s. Hope I got everyone caught up, in the meantime have an amazing weekend. Here are a few things you may have missed this week.
