While aimlessly strolling up and down the toy aisles at Target, I couldn’t help but overhear a fellow mom. She was mumbling to herself about finding something tech-related for her children. Typically, I wouldn’t intervene, but I could relate. I was searching for something creative for my own toddler. When I approached the mom and asked her what exactly she was searching for, she laughed and said, “I wish I knew. Something fun, yet educational, I guess.” After we talked some more, we went our separate ways. However, I kept thinking about how she didn’t know what she was looking for.

For babies, sometimes the simplest toys help them learn the most. But as babies grow up, there are cool (and educational) tech toys and gadgets to consider. If you’re looking to buy tech gifts for kids—whether for a birthday gift or an everyday learning activity—but aren’t sure where to begin, we’ve rounded up some of our favorites by age.
