Kano Harry Potter Coding Kit

Awarded TIME’s Best Inventions for 2018, this first-ever Harry Potter STEM product allows you to build a wand and learn to code with step-by-step challenges, inspired by the Wizarding World.

The Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit wand combines a gyroscope, accelerometer and magnetometer to track your hand movement and recognize the motions of signature spells.

The creative challenges teach fundamentals of coding and introduce basic concepts of real-world programming thanks to a block-based interface and a JavaScript inspector, guided by simple steps.

Relay Screen-Free SmartPhone For Kids

Relay Walkie Talkies

Relay is the screen-free smartphone for kids. It’s as easy to use as a walkie talkie, but works everywhere because it’s powered by 4G LTE – just like a phone.You could be in New York talking to someone in California.

Relay is screen-free so it eliminates the distractions of screens without sacrificing the safety of easy communication that allows parents to feel comfortable letting their kids go off on their own.

Relay is safe! They do not build profiles on you or your children and do not sell or monetize any customer information. They worked with Common Sense Media to craft privacy policies and $5 from every Relay sale goes to support the organization.

The companion app works just like another Relay – you can talk to the devices straight from your app so mom/dad doesn’t necessarily need one if they don’t want.

Relay has proven popular with grandparents/seniors too because it’s so easy to use.
