Now that my kids are getting bigger, I am finding it harder to know what to get them for Christmas. Here are some great items I have found to get your tech kid happy this Christmas.

 

Star Wars BB-8 Droid

By Sphero

bb8

Any kid (including husbands) would be excited to get this for Christmas. The battery life on this is about 1 hour so be ready to charge often as they will want to play with this a lot. BB-8 recognizes and reacts to your voice, listens and responds working through Bluetooth and his attitude and actions will evolve as you interact with him.  While not the cheapest toy on the list, it will keep them entertained for a long time.

Hatchimals

By Spin Master

hatch

remember when that Elmo doll sold like crazy and no one could find it? This year I think this will be the same as that. Hatchimals are an interactive magical creatures waiting inside an egg to hatch.  It can take anywhere from 10-40 mins for the animal to hatch and needs attention during this to help it along.  Once hatched, the walking, talking Hatchimal will continue to evolve and remain interactive with its owner.
