Well, although neither Christmas nor Easter is round the corner, you could gift your kid something really special and make his/her day. One of the best options for you is to gift your kid with a high tech toy. Just go on and try these cool high tech toys for your child.
1. Barbie Digital Dress Doll
Barbie has gone digital, with a little black LED dress that lights up in any pattern or design you can create. The digital doll shows off her fabulous LED dress, which lets girls enjoy tons of interactive fashion fun. They can chose different design modes, from built-in graphics to customized designs to rhythmic motion.
2. Sphero 2.0
The Sphero 2.0 is a tiny robotic ball. It could be used for various activities. For example, you could take it for a jog, see it swim or watch it glow. Also, you could race it under furniture and use it as a game controller. Essentially this is an attempt to control a sophisticated robotic toy with just your mobile device.
Want to teach your kid how to be responsible? I would suggest that a pet is a great way to help your kid to develop his/her self esteem. But, unfortunately, some kids maybe allergic to pets. In such cases, there is no need to worry. There is this alternate robotic pet which is two times more attentive and also, not allergy causing. Ubooly is one such great robotic pet which can narrate bed-time stories and even tell jokes and have a conversation with your child.
Price: $29.95- $59.95
You could consider MiP as a toy which is made for fun rather than for learning. But still, you gotta admire what a wonderful toy it is. MiP is a balancing robot which allows you to control it from your phone. You can control it manually from your iOS or Android phone, draw paths for it to move on and even get it to dance with fellow robots.
This is a toy which will help your child to learn programming. The fact is, it teaches your child to do so even before he/she learns to read. It consists of 3 main parts: a robot called Cubetto, an interface for input of instructions, and instruction blocks which sends instructions on how the robot should move.
6. Bo and Yana
These are a duo. Bo serves as the explorer and Yana is the story-teller. These are very intelligent robots that will help your 5 year old to learn visual programming and develop problem solving skills. Younger users can even teach the robot to play a xylophone, play games like hide and seek and tag and even deliver packages.

The Fuhu Nabhi 2 is not only a great kid-friendly tablet, but also a great full-featured Android tablet that has the chops to take on the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD. The tablet has a silicone bumper, similar to the Kurio’s except that its food-grade which means it’s guaranteed to be non-toxic. In other words, the nabi 2 does not get damaged even if kids drop it onto concrete. There are plenty of pre-loaded games to keep kids engaged for hours.
