The difference between, say, a teenager and grandparent using a computer is striking. Utilising technology is just a skill that comes naturally for youngsters these days, especially when it’s being embedded into the curriculum. Why not get your teeny tots and young children prepared with technology appropriate for their age? We’ve got plenty of exciting products for you to choose from, the best of which comes from a highly-loved brand, VTech.
Suitable from six months are designs like the VTech Baby Learning Smart Phone; a ‘smart phone’ which has 10 light-up buttons to help get them started with letters and numbers. The engaging light patterns also help stimulate their senses, and they’ll be fascinated with the holographic images that shift as they move the phone. There are also slightly more active options, such as the VTech 3-in-1 Learning Zebra Scooter. This clever contraption grows with your child. It starts out as a toddler truck, where they can push it along as they become more confident at walking. Then they can sit on it like a bike, before standing on it like a conventional scooter. Alternatively, opt for the VTech KidiActive Talking Disc (suitable from age three) which allows them to record messages before throwing it to their friends.
We’ve also got tablets like the VTech Innotab 3S with Battery Pack – Blue and VTech Innotab 3 – Pink; two different models with a bevy of learning options. Complete with apps, a camera, eBook reader and more, these gadgets are ideal learning platforms. You can even get their mind whirring with a game, such as VTech InnoTab – Toy Story.
Despite the tablets having built-in cameras, perhaps your little one would prefer one on its own? We’ve got the VTech Kidizoom Twist Plus – Pink or the VTech Kidizoom Twist Plus – Blue to tempt them with. They’re perfect for capturing fun memories.
