From tiny to teens, these 6 winners will be hit gifts this year for kids. We put them to the test and fell in love with them all starting with the newest and very affordable tablet to come out.
Announced just days ago, Lenovo Moto Tab is the latest Android tablet to hit the market. I love the Kids Mode, just one of its many winning features. Hold it in your hands and it feels solidly made. The 10.1 inch full HD portable display plays videos easily with one swipe access to tv mode, the dual facing front speakers with Dolby Atmos sound, you are ready to tap the world on the go. It’s also got the ability to dock with the Lenovo Home Assistant speaker with an Alexa powered connection for $79.95. Not only will you be boosting the power of audio, but Alexa will start showing you results on the Moto Tab visually. AT&T stores even offer installment payments at $15/mo or the regular price of $299.99.
Kids know its the right gear that makes the game. PlayStation VR connects to PlayStation 4 and transports you into the game you are playing. Virtual Reality is so much more immersive and interactive than playing a game on a TV. We are almost a year after the introduction of PS VR and is now hitting its stride with a lineup of 150+ games and now Gran Turismo Sport, Skyrim VR and Doom VFR are out for the holidays.
