Sharing is caring!

Kids today are growing up in a virtual world, spending more and more time in front of screens. Sure there are a bunch of fun cartoons and educational games woven throughout your child’s tech time, but I am here to tell you it is not enough. One of the biggest issues with screen time learning is that sure your child is learning, but in most cases your child is being told what to think, not how to think or do.

Kids need the opportunity to explore their environments hands on, not just observe them.

These App-Enabled Tech Toys for Kids are designed to enhance screen time with building, drawing, creating…playing hands on.
