If your kids are constantly eyeing your Apple Watch and wanting to play with it themselves, they will love having a smartwatch of their own. The Kurio Smartwatch has a high-res touchscreen, games, apps and even the ability to send messages to other Kurio watches and Android devices. It also enables parents to enter in an “in case of emergency” contact number and kids’ medical information. ($59.99)
Thanks to its Active Balance Technology, kids (and adults) will be hovering around the neighborhood in no time. Not only can you travel up to 15 miles on a single charge, but the Jetson V6 also features Bluetooth speakers, LED lights, beginner/intermediate/advanced users setting, as well as location tracking. Most importantly, it features flame- and water-resistant construction. Recommended for users over the age of 13. ($399)
If you aren’t quite ready for a hoverboarding kid, the Space Scooter is another cool vehicle option. Instead of running on electricity, this runs on pure kid-power, pumping up and down to get the gears moving. Geared for kids ages 8+, the Space Scooter features air suspension for super smooth scootering. It also folds down for easy portability. ($149.99)
Part cuddly creature, part communication gadget, the Toymail Talkie is a way for kids and loved ones to stay in touch. Using a complementary Toymail app, kids can send and receive voice messages through the Talkie.
