Kids are so tech savvy in this modern world.
Even my 15-month-old gravitates towards iPhones and the Wii versus the toddler toys we have bought for him that lie scattered and alone throughout our home.
Today’s toys offer our children experience in play with a touch of math, reading, science, programming and so much more!
Inspired by The Toy Insider‘s weekend promo on hot toys for this Christmas, I did a little research and narrowed it down to these hot smart toys tech-savvy kids will be oh-so appreciative of this holiday season.
