Now that the PS2 has dropped in price, it's finally time to start thinking about giving the gift of gaming to the tween girl in your life. Not only will it keep her from telling you about the latest episode of The Suite Life of Raven and the Jonas Rugrats
or whatever nonsense she's now in to, it'll also let you finally catch up on that peace and quiet you've been missing since she turned alive
PlayStation 2 -
In the US, you don't have a lot of variety when it comes to what color the console is. If technology has taught us anything, it's that girls shy away from gizmos that aren't the color pink, so before we can get her on board, we'll need to make sure the PS2 looks the part. This brings us to our next step.

Stickers, glitter, glue, and construction paper
- We know it's a piece of technology, but she's probably going to kick it or drop it down a flight of stairs or something, thus ruining it
. Best to get the pain of forever altering the system out of the way now, by letting her put glitter, unicorns, and whatever lead singer's name she loves all over it. This really benefits you later down the road, when you can point to the system and show her how much of a tween girl she used to be.

High School Musical: Sing It (bundle with microphone)
- Our own tests on underage girls (wait, that doesn't sound right) shows that the breed enjoys the happenings of a bunch of high schoolers who pretty much sing every single thing they do. So tween girls will love this, and if you have two tweens in mind, then they can just share, because kids are great at doing that.

Hannah Montana: Spotlight World Tour
- Another surefire hit with the tween girl crowd, this game has you doing everything Hannah Montana does, save for counting copious amounts of cash. You'll perform, play some minigames, and even design outfits using Hannah's wardrobe. If that isn't fun for a young girl, then we don't know what is.
