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.

NINTENDO Switch Lite

The Nintendo Switch Lite has been designed with on-the-go gaming in mind, so you can jump into your games on your commute, on a flight, out at the park - anywhere at all. It's super lightweight, so it's perfect for popping in your backpack or bag for some spontaneous gaming if you find yourself with some time to kill. The controllers are built-in too, so there's no chance of them getting damaged or lost when you're out and about.

Avonn Gaming Keyboard & Locx Gaming Mouse

Full size layout. Rainbow Wave illumination with adjustable brightness. Anti-Ghosting: Up to 6 simultaneous key pressings. 12 Direct access media keys. Game mode switch; directly disable windows key.

LeapFrog Magic Adventures Globe

Young explorers can travel the world and see everything in it with the Magic Adventures Globe. Using the stylus, children can tap on the 25cm interactive learning globe and experience new places, languages, cultures, animals, geography, habitats and more through high-quality BBC videos.

LeapFrog Speak and Learn Puppy

Unleash your puppy love for the plush Speak & Learn Puppy™! Watch your little friend come to life with flapping ears, a head that moves, and real-time responses. As toddlers learn to talk, this interactive dog repeats what they say and asks questions to keep the conversation going. Bailey says what your child says in a fun and interactive way in Babble mode. In Talk mode, the puppy has conversations with children and creates stories from their responses.

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, it's important to try and control media consumption and set boundaries for screen time. Kurio tablets include the latest advanced parental controls that allows parents to constantly stay in touch and in control! (A lifetime connection at no extra cost!)
