Kiddie Technology: Technology Equipped Toys for Kids
When we adults would gather around and talk about what’s the latest updates in the world of technology, we’d usually discuss about the latest mobile phones and tablets in the market, compare our computer’s memory capacity, rant how the latest operating system update got our mobile phone files all messed up, or probably a little chit-chat about the upcoming technology that we can’t wait to get our hands on such as Amazon’s echo, or the never-ending concepts about the much awaited “flying car”. For us adults, a good technology is one that is highly functional, innovative, cost-efficient, and ofcourse, one that makes our lives really easy. But in a kid’s world, things are a whole lot different.
When children discuss about technology, what’s coolest is what’s best. And they don’t really talk about memory capacity, faster file synchronization, or operating systems glitches at all, rather it’s all about what’s new, fun, popular, and cool.
And now that Christmas is just around the corner, you might want to consider wrapping one of these awesome technology-pumped cool toys for your kids.
1. Zoomer Interactive Puppy – Shadow
First on the list of cool toys is the Zoomer Interactive Puppy. Believe me, this puppy is no small dog. In fact, it is a multilingual dog robot that can understand commands in Spanish, French, and English. Just like a real dog, Shadow has the capacity to follow its owner around, run and wag its tail, and ofcourse learn a lot of new tricks. And just like actual puppies, your kid can show his or her affection to Shadow by rubbing the puppy’s belly or rubbing its head. What’s good about this puppy, aside from being rabies-free, is that it is rechargeable; so no problem with having to change the battery from time to time.
2. Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids’ Tablet
And if you want to show how much of a cool mom you are, you might want to go overgenerous by getting your kiddo a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Kids’ Tablet. Equipped with apps and games that every kid would wish to play such as Kids Planet Discovery and Toy Story Smash It, this tab is made for fun and ofcourse learning.
