There are some cool new tech toys available at Best Buy geared for children. These tech toys provide a fun and educational experience, and can influence how children will learn, build, and grow. With these new Kids Tech products/gadgets and learning apps, keeping your kids engaged couldn’t be easier. I had the fun opportunity to try out the Ozmo set! My kids (ages 7-13) loved playing with this!
I love that my 11 year old was excited to try the drawing feature! She just loved showing off her completed art work! My 13 year old had fun with the tangrams and the art work one. My 7 year old thought all the apps were fun!
Since we homeschool, I can see this working its way into our schooling! The letters will help with spelling and the tangrams with puzzle and problem solving.
It's never too early to start getting Christmas ideas!!
