Cool Christmas Gift Ideas for Kids that Bring Tech and Imagination Together
These gifts bring the latest technology into simple, straightforward toys that kids adore.
The Music Player that Puts Tunes in their Hands
The Jooki Music Player allows kids to choose their own music by placing an adorable character at the center of the wireless speaker. Parents can remotely—via WiFi—set up playlists associated with each character, set the maximum volume level (thank goodness) and shut the device off as needed. Kids can enjoy a tough, brightly-colored speaker that plays their favorite tunes at will. Win-win!
The Augmented Reality Puzzle to Challenge Their Minds
CubeTastic’s AR Puzzle Cube brings cutting-edge augmented reality into the hands of kids as young as preschoolers. It guides them through puzzle-solving and critical-thinking skills that’ll have them working through challenges and gaining confidence by the bushel. If they get stuck, all they have to do is scan the cube into the app for some fun pointers to help them keep going.
The Kid-Friendly Smartphone-Enabled Camera
Kids love taking photos with mom and dad’s phone, but sometimes the phones themselves take the brunt of that adventurous play. The smartphone-enabled kids’ camera by Pixplay creates a point-and-shoot style camera from an iPhone, using the headphone jack to control the shutter button and letting budding photographers take the lead.

They also feature soft foam-padded handles and armrests and extra traction on the curved foot pieces for better stability.
The Play Wings For Hours of Imaginative Fun
Playing dress-up just got more realistic. These butterfly wings for kids by Playful Apparel let little ones take figurative flight with airy wings that gently attach across their back and to their arms and wrists.

Hands-On Toys for Young Learners
