Top Tech Gifts

for Kids and Teens

this Christmas





Here's our list of some of the most child friendly tech gifts for this Christmas. You won't find any PlayStations, IPhones or Xboxes on this list, just well-rounded, educational, electronic devices that will encourage your child's development in a technological world.

Be warned, these devices are expensive and should be classed as 'big' gifts or gifts from Santa himself. Be prepared to shed a pretty penny if you opt for these presents.



Kurio 7 Inch Tablet Connect Blue

Kurio Connect is the latest in the range of award winning 18cm 16GB Kurio tablets. Children today spend on average over 10hrs+ a week playing games/apps, 15hrs+ online and accessing video sites. We know that with so much media accessible at their finger tips at a very young age, its important to try and control media consumption and set boundaries for screen time.
