Tech Tools For Cool Kids


Annabelle is only 18 months old, but she already knows her way around an iPad and an iPhone. She has seen me flick through photos and knows how to do that herself, plus she watches Dora movies on long car trips on the iPad, like when we went to Byron. So, it’s really no surprise that kids of all ages these days are so into their technology - they pick it up so easily and are always on the lookout for the next best thing.

Now more than ever, you can make your kids’ education and their enthusiasm for learning so much more enjoyable with our favourite tech tools and accessories for cool kids, that they’re sure to love!

Star Walk HD

For $2.99 from the iTunes store, Star Walk HD can help your kids discover the wonders in the sky above them, simply through a mobile device like an iPhone or iPad. All you have to do is point the phone or iPad at the sky and you’ll see the stars, planets, constellations and satellites in their proper place from where you’re standing. Kids will absolutely love this interactive guide to the night sky.

Woodland Tablet Covers

These super cute knitted Woodland tablet covers are simply adorable. Kids can choose between an owl, a bear and a raccoon. We want the whole set for ourselves! $24.95 each, Cotton On.

Crayola MyPhones

For the little music lovers out there, these cool Crayola Myphones headphones come with stickers and markers so that your kids can personalise them to suit their individual style. And not only that, they’re volume limiting as well, meaning that they keep the sound down to levels that are safe for kids. Availble online from Griffin Technology, $24.99 each plus shipping.

Mimobot USBs

Tech savvy kids will love these cool MimBot USB drives, featuring Hello Kitty, Transformers, Star Wars and DC Comics characters like Batman and Robin. Most of the USBs available have 4gb capacity and both Mac and Windows compatible. $24.95 each, from Mimobot.

Weird But True

With a bunch of facts and trivia that will have the kids (and maybe a few grownups) hooked, the Weird But True app from National Geographic is plenty of education and entertainment. For example - did you know that a hippo's lips are about two feet wide? Or that didaskaleinophobia is the fear of going to school? I most definitely did not know that. Free, iTunes store.
