Here is a picture of my son standing on Smart Weigh Electronic Bathroom Scale. As you can see the numbers are big and easy to read.
I also love the sliver color of this scale, they sell it in gold too. But it give the bathroom a nice look.
Like I said we had him get on and food of it a few times to see if the number would change, and it did not. This a a good simple scale.
While I would not recommend this as a Christmas gift.... last thing you want is someone thinking they need to lose weight! It does make a great scale for you.
