2015 Tech Gift Guide for Kids

For the bookworm

There’s nothing better than giving a child the gift of imagination. One of the best ways to do this is to give them an e-reader! Choose between a Kindle Paperwhite or a Kindle Fire, depending on the needs and likes of the individual child. Amazon also offers a “Kindle for Kids” bundle that comes with the newest Kindle model, a 2 year protection plan and a kid-friendly cover. Pair this gift with an Amazon giftcard so they can load their library immediately.

For the future scientist

If your child has a curious mind and loves all things science, consider purchasing the Zoomy Handheld Digital Microscope. It sells for around $40 and lets your child explore the world around them with the help of their computer. The device connects via USB and transmits the images the child has found in the world to the screen. You can magnify them further and even print them out for your little scientist.

For the robot lover

The Sphero is a robot that is controlled by either a smartphone or a tablet and is something the kids will love. It also doubles as a controller for any of the tablet games that your child has or will have in the future. How is that for a cool robot? It comes in many different forms and sells for around $129.

For the littlest tech lover

If you’ve got a little one on your hands who loves hands-on toys and activities, check out Tiggly products. Tiggly is a hybrid, hands-on toy that pairs with your Android or iOS devices and apps. Tiggly is touted as “the smarter way to play.” Check out all of the different toys and apps available from Tiggly.

For The Future Engineer

The littleBits Starter Kit sells for just under $100, but is a great investment for the kid who loves to put things together and solve problems. The littleBits kit contains mini electronic components that all have different functions like creating light or sound. All of the components connect with magnets as well. This is a project that you can work on together!
