It’s difficult to keep kids away from technology, even if you wanted to. Many kids are already using phones, tablets and game consoles, along side their traditional toys.
Despite the concern among parents regarding tech toys (as they feel kids are already spending too much time with tech gadgets), these toys can be educational and a constructive way to keep your child occupied.
These tech toys are also a great way to develop interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) topics.
Here are some of the best tech toys for kids.

Toys Make STEM Subjects Interesting for Kids
Its a known fact that there are more jobs (and better paying ones) that have any relation with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). That is the reason, most parents want their children to do well in the STEM subjects.
These toys will also introduce your children to STEM, without forcing anything on them.
The most practical thing to do is to make STEM recreational, and definitely not a chore. Its important to arouse curiosity in children and ask questions like “what happens when water boils, why you see a rainbow, have thunder and lightning, etc.”
Its also a great idea to visit local museum, zoo, science centres.
