Her hobby is clicking her pink polished fingernails on her Swarovski-encrusted iPhone. (She should be in the Guinness Book of World Records for her speedy texting.) She’s never missed an episode of Gossip Girl. Duh. And though her drawers are bubbling over with makeup and jewelry, there’s always room for more.

It takes him a while to get out of bed in the morning. But once he’s up, he’s all action. His uniform consists of his favorite hoodie and seriously colorful kicks. If you can’t find him perusing his favorite comic books, he’s probably playing Tony Hawk on his Xbox with his crew.

He’s always on the go. Keep up and you’ll be burning serious calories. He follows every Dallas sports team and participates in a few of his own. He would whoop the competition with his fantasy football team if only his allowance was enough to join. He’ll settle down, though, for a little couch time in front of WALL-E.

This one’s a love-bug. Sure, he’s interested in his squishy baseball (perhaps a Derek Jeter in the making), but what he really loves is snuggling up to his stuffed farm animals.

You can tell she’s going to have taste in the finer things. She’s already stomping around in her mini Uggs with pride. And notice how comfortable she looks in her baby Juicy Couture tracksuit?
