I think I was a preteen before my family had the internet in our home. I remember waiting patiently while the dial-up beeped and booped until connected.
Now, my kids would think the computer was about to explode if they heard that sound before going online.
And I remember learning proper finger placement on keyboards in front of big boxy dinosaur computers in 8th Grade Word Processing Class.
Now, our kids seem to learn to type instinctively after exposure and practice starting in toddlerhood.
Whether we like it or not, we’re raising high-tech kids.
And high-tech kids need a few cool high-tech toys. And the best batteries on hand!
2 Cool Toys Your High-Tech Kids will Love – And Learn From!
High-tech toys don’t have to mean less imagination or play. Toy designers today are taking imagination and play to the next level. Like WowWee toys, for example. (They can be found right at Toys”R”Us – along with the Duracell batteries to power the fun.) They’re so interactive and educational. Here are 2 cool ones my kids are loving…
Meet CHiP the Robotic Dog
My kids are loving their new pet: an intelligent, friendly, interactive robot puppy (who doesn’t have to be taken out to potty!).
CHiP uses advanced sensors to interact with smart accessories. Like his Smartball and the kids’ Smartband.
And the way kids respond to him uniquely shapes his behavior, so he becomes a completely unique toy – well, pet! My kids love asking him to dance and do yoga with them. And they can use the WowWee CHiP app on my phone to feed him and train him.
So cool and imaginative, right?!
And Meet COJI the Coding Robot
CHiP’s really cool, but I have to admit, COJI’s the biggest hit in our house. He only takes a few Duracell batteries, and he’s up and running teaching my kids the skill of coding.
The kids don’t even realize their learning when they play games with COJI using emojis. But COJI is secretly teaching them programming skills that could come in mighty handy as they grow up! Even if they never become computer programmers, COJI’s coding games are awesome for practicing critical thinking skills and understanding technology.
My kids love using the WowWee COJI app and its familiar emojis to code COJI’s actions. Plus, they can use it as a remote control for imaginative robot play when they’re done with their coding fun. But he’s even fun without the app, reacting to physical movements like tilting and shaking.
Shop Toys”R”Us for CHiP, COJI, and other cool WowWee tech toys. Just make sure to add some Duracell batteries to your cart, too. As the #1 trusted brand by parents, Duracell is sure to power tons of imaginative fun and tech learning for your kids!
