As my kids are getting older, they are getting more and more into tech-toys. They like things that do things. They like creating things that do things. This includes our three and a half year old. She has no idea about the power a real iPad can do in smaller hands, we also don't have $1000 to replace the ones we have so we lean toward getting her electronics more suitable for her age. Ones she can control with ease and won't make us cry if she happens to drop them. 

Vtech has been a household name since the kids knew what electronics were. From alphabet and number toddler games to handheld tablets for kids - they have always been a reliable brand when it comes to inexpensive electronics for little kids. 

DigiArt Creative Easel brings together technology and art in this new creative device. It can be transformed from a light-up dry-erase board to a chalkboard and drawing table for three fun ways to play! With it, children can learn:
  • To draw more than 100 objects and shapes step-by-step
  • Letter and number stroke order for uppercase letters A-Z and numbers 1-20 stroke-by-stroke
  • Ten classic songs 

Kidizoom Smart Watch DX lets them feel like a big kid! It's got an internal memory that stores 1,600 images and 23 minutes of video, it makes it so much more than just a watch! Also includes 50+ digital and analog watch displays, three fun activities, five games, three action challenges, a motion sensor, a pedometer, a time-telling app, and more!

For those of you with older kids who have a love of building things, you should check out HEXBUG's VEX Robotics Teaching older kids about the science behind the fun through hands-on learning with their STEM-based robotics construction kits. 

Open construction with snap-together pieces in the VEX Robotics Snap Shot allows for a glimpse at the planetary gears and real working shock absorber style springs. Learn how simple gear ratios and spring energy send projectiles flying over ten feet for long-range attacks.  

The HEXBUG VEX Robotics Zip Flyer is capable of shooting propellers over 30 feet in the air! Pull the zip-cord stick to release - the faster you pull, the higher they'll go. 

Although VEX Robotics are geared for older kids, they are also great for a parent to build with their child. Our eight year old son always enjoying doing projects like these with either myself, his dad or even his older sister. Not only does everyone learn but it's time well spent when it's time spent together. 

For the youngest techy to the teen mechanic, these are just a few ideas to consider for any upcoming gifts you may be wanting to give! You can find all of these toys at stores like Toys R Us or Walmart!
