Christmastime is here again! And that means it’s time to shop for cool tech toys for all those techie kids on your list!!
This year I’ve had a bit of trouble deciding on what to buy for Avery. She’s rapidly approaching age 2 and can be a little bit hard to shop for. I mean it’s easy to buy her tons of toys, but I really don’t want tons of toys piled up all over the house. Dave and I bought her a few things, but knew we wanted to get her something “Techie” so off to Best Buy we went!
I had checked a few items out online, but I hate that I can’t try them out, or have Avery try them out, through the computer screen! That’s one thing I love about Best Buy! You can go in to the store and get your hands on the items you’re interested in! That really helps me out, and makes me feel better about larger purchases!
So, what are the cool tech toys for kids?
-nabi jr tablet
I have been eyeing these cute, kid friend;y tablets for awhile now! I love that they are the perfect size for toddler hands and virtually indestructible. They come preloaded with apps and is easy for little ones to use! Avery enjoyed playing with it in the store and I really thought we were going to have a meltdown when it was time to move on!
-Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 kids
Uhm…for real? A Samsung tablet for kids?! AWESOME!! We are a Samsung family, and I absolutely love their products, so I was very excited to see one for kids! Like the nabi, this tablet comes preloaded with apps, and you can add more! The screen is larger, and it’s lighter than the nabi, I’m not sure if it’s as “Kid tough” though. I also loved that you can turn off the parental controls/kid mode, and it’s a standard tablet that adults can use as well!
-Crayola DigiTools Digital Effects Deluxe kit for iPad
I know this is a post about Tech toys for kids…but… I WANT THIS!!! I had no idea something like this even existed! With this you can turn your ipad into a canvas! I can’t think of a better gift for the Artsy Techie in your life!
-LeapFrog and Vtech Tablets for kids
These kid friendly tablets come in all different styles, for different ages and needs. They also have different price points to fit in your budget. Avery loved that there were so many Disney Jr. games to choose from!
-Disney Infinity and lots of other items for the gamer kid!
Disney Infinity is gaming fun that everyone in your family can enjoy! And with all the character figure add-ons, and your imagination, the game is always changing! The whole concept of this is so much more exciting to me than standard video games that you play, and beat, and never play again!
Best Buy has sooo many games, including those for $19.99! And tons of accessories made with the “gamer” in mind!
-Fun small appliances!
Best buy also carries a variety of small (and large) appliances! What kid wouldn’t want their own popcorn or cotton candy machine? And the Sodastream? SO cool! Avery found herself a Minnie Mouse alarm clock (as if she needs one!) that she would LOVE to find under the tree!
Looking for stocking stuffers? Best Buy has you covered there as well! Cell phone and tablet cases, value priced movies, super cute aux cables, and of course app store & iTunes gift cards! All perfect for stuffing stockings!!

I told you, we’re a Samsung family….
Of course, if you can’t decide, a Best Buy Gift Card is the perfect gift for the techie kid (or adult) in your life! I picked up a $50 gift card to gift to Dave so he can buy that Samsung S4 he was drooling over (and I won’t feel as guilty about buying one for myself!)
