Children can be extremely
impulsive in their teenage years. There is always a new trend or fad
that they want to dive right into, and they expect their parents to
oblige them! There are however, some items that are must-haves for
every teen. Almost all teens will pester their parents for most of
these items. After all, these items are their tickets to Coolsville!
Let's take a look at what's hot and happening with today.
MP3 Player - The music player blasted onto the scene with the release of Apple's iPod and soon became every teenager's very first mandatory accessory.
A lot of other companies soon released their own mp3 players, with a
wide range of features. Teenagers in India tend to travel a lot and
prefer to carry their music with them. And some of the better music players today can hold as much 150 to 200 GB of music. Therefore, accessory #1 - the music player!
Cell phone - Mobile phones became popular with teens in the 90s and it remains unchanged. Teenagers are extremely whimsical with phones
and may demand the latest phone every now and then. For example, the
most popular phone among teenagers today is the iPhone from Apple. The
fancier the phone, the more popular it is with teenagers. The iPhone
has features like touch-screen applications, maps, email, music player, video recording etc. But teenagers also prefer rare models, so they can stand out in a group. The phone is accessory #2!
Laptop/Powerful Desktop - A laptop or a powerful desktop
computer has become a must-have for every teen. Teens today spend a lot
of time online, socializing or playing games or just surfing. Most
teens today are also heavily into gaming, which means they need a
state-of-art machine. And comparing computer specs is a teen pastime,
which means you are going to have to pay for all those hardware and software upgrades! The accessory #3 slot has the laptop!
Gaming Station/Video Game Console - Teens always want to be treated as grown-ups, but that is only until they come across a gaming station! In the 90's, video game consoles
were basic 8-bit or 16-bit games, but today, gaming consoles are
extremely powerful and come with their own range of games Gaming
consoles like Playstation, Xbox, Wii, etc. are the rage among teens
today. Gaming tournaments are often held in colleges and gaming clubs.
Also, teens spend more time gaming together than anything else! Video game consoles hold their spot at #4 on the accessory list!
Transport - Now a vehicle or a 'ride' is the teenager's dearest
thing. He loves it because it gives him the freedom to be absolutely
anywhere at any time. Teenagers, being the impulsive creatures that
they are, make the wildest plans at the oddest hours and therefore need
their own mode of transport.
Most teenagers own two-wheelers, but your teen will begin by
negotiating for a four wheeler. And it does not stop there, because no
ride is complete without some shiny accessories! So yes, every teenager
must have a car, bike or scooter, in that order. Or maybe even all
three. And this completes the accessory list at #5!
