MAKE A LIST What are the "it" toys this holiday season? Look to the November issue for answers — including the biggest Transformers toy ever made, a helicopter controlled by the flick of your wrist, the latest robotic Lego creations and much more. The Boys' Life editors spent months culling the most popular and exciting toys of the season. Your Scouts won't want to miss it!


SKI TRIP ON A DIME Planning a ski trip with your troop or crew can easily exceed even the best-kept budgets. There's travel, lodging, equipment — not to mention cold-weather gear. Your Scouts will gain helpful tips on how to plan a thrifty snow-sports excursion in the December issue. Follow along as Florida Troop 892 heads to a North Carolina mountain to learn how to ski and snowboard without breaking the bank.


START SHARP Know a Scout who just earned his Totin' Chip? Point him to the December issue, featuring the best knives and multitools. From Gerber to Victorinox, Buck to Bear & Son, this guide — with a price range from $13 to $40 — will help Scouts narrow down the best tool for their new skill.
