A growing trend are toys and games inspired by kids watching viral TikTok videos.  And then there are some tried and true gifts that any kid will love receiving under the tree or like this first one, hovering above the Christmas tree.


Toniebox with Disney Tonies

This is a Toniebox,  a screen-free smart speaker for kids that uses figures to engage them the way TV and video games do, without a screen.  When you place an audio figure called a Tonie onto a Toniebox, it plays songs and stories from all of your children’s favorite movies, TV shows and books.  Kids can adjust the volume by pinching the ears on top and navigate track selections by whacking the side of the box.

Artie Max The Coding Robot

This is so cool for so many reasons including the fact that it is fun and combines left brain/ right brain skills of critical thinking and artistic expression.

That’s because Artie Max helps kids ages 8 and up to learn coding through creativity.  What you program gets expressed as a drawing that your child makes by coding with Artie Max.

I love that Artie Max is packed with cool tech like a remote control, line following, color sensing, emotive eyes and sounds.
