Top Tech Toys for Kids Ultimate Gift Guide

Petoi Bittle 2 Robot Dog

No Top Tech Toys Gift Guide would be complete without a neat coding robot and now kids can learn STEM and robotics with the world’s first palm-sized, Servo-activated robot dog from Petoi.. The Petoi robot dog can provide a fun introduction to robotics and coding for kids of all ages. While some robots can cost thousands of dollars, the new Petoi’s Bittle 2 is an affordable, entry level robot toy that anyone can play with, program and train. It’s an excellent project for kids (and families) who may have a particular interest in robotics and programming. A great gift for teens ages 14 and up! My own teenager is really excited to receive this gift.

Petio Bittle 2 - Pet Robot - Robot Dog you can program

Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for your teen or a much younger techy kid, he/she will enjoy endless hours of fun playing with Petoi’s real robot pets. These neat robots walk and move like real pets and can be designed and programmed by you. With supervision from an adult, this open source and programmable robot pet is easy to build and code at home no matter if this is your kid’s first time tinkering or if they’re already a little robotics expert. It’s recommended for the older kids but honestly kids at all levels can benefit — even those kids who may want to experiment with robotics topics but may not be up for the big challenge of building a robot all on their own.

When purchasing the Petoi Bittle robot dog you have 2 options to choose from — choose to purchase a pre-built robot dog that’s ready to play with outside the box (and save yourself the extra steps of figuring out how to build-it-yourself) or select a DIY set and challenge your little maker to assemble the robot all on their own, making building and coding the robot part of the learning process. The build it yourself kit comes with everything you need, including access to an online manual that walks users through the step-by-step process of building the robot with detailed instructions and easy to follow video tutorials. As kids build the robot, they learn circuitry and are introduced to basic robotics concepts. Users will also have a few options for controlling their Bittle dog robot, via the included IR remote control, by downloading the Petoi app onto a phone, or installing the desktop app on a computer.

Overall, this is an exciting STEM toy for kids interested in learning more about robotics!

Bittle 2 is currently on sale for 20% OFF on the Petoi website.

It doesn’t require Wi-Fi and charges on an easy charging station. I love that Tonies are so simple to use and completely ad-free. The Toniebox system and compatible figurines are small enough to take on-the-go anywhere you go. Kids will love listening to their favorite stories and songs, on long car rides, or at abuela’s house. My own daughter loves taking her Toniebox wherever she goes!

We love these Spanish Language Tonies and I think your bilingual kiddos will love them too!

DIY Boombox Speaker STEAM Kit

Kids build their own boombox and learn how a radio works with the DIY Boombox Speaker STEAM Kit. You start by assembling a cardboard boombox complete with working speakers. Then place your phone into the holder at the front of the boombox and you can listen to music through the speakers. The speakers really work so kids can listen to music once they’re done building their little boombox. Great for curious kids! Parents will love the learning that happens with this neat little STEAM kit!

Kids get hands-on experience putting together electronic components. It’s fun for kids who like to tinker and fun for kids who love music. Great for creativity because kids get to decorate their own boombox. The included paint markers, stickers, and stencils, help kids color and customize their boombox creation which encourages originality and creativity. This great little kit promotes STEM & STEAM education (science, technology, engineering, art, math). The beginner-friendly step-by-step instructions help kids learn engineering, mechanics and technology basics.

This kit is perfect for tweens and I love that it channels smartphone usage into a productive art project! Kids will love the process of assembling this kit and jamming out to their favorite tunes once finished. It even comes with a functioning volume dial to turn it up the music. Super neat and fun!
