Getting kids moving these days can be difficult, especially with the lure of their iThis and iThat which keep their butts firmly planted on the sofa. So when I first saw the Mover Kit from Technology Will Save Us, I was elated, finally a fun and clever way to kids programming their very own wearable tech to hopefully result in some exercise and movement!
Summer holidays are upon us. AAAAAAAARGH. We have weeks of nothingness stretching ahead of us. Well. I say nothingness, but I can guarantee you, the nothingness will for sure be punctuated by lots and lots of “I’m bored” or “What are we doing todayyyyy”. Well, always happy to help a materialistic conundrum involving your kids – here’s something to keep them busy from now, until they leave for University.
I present ‘The Speaker Cube‘ by Bose – a new DIY speaker for kids that they can engineer themselves and then really benefit from the results.
I have a confession to make: I love kids apps, they are a type of meditation for me. Maybe because they make me feel smart or maybe because they are so fun! Toca Boca’s new app Toca Life: Vacation is the fourth instalment brought to us from the Toca Life series, which allows children to live a Mini-Me version of ‘adult life’ – but without the stresses and strains of course!
In this app you are able to go on holiday, experiencing everything from airport security to the sand between your toes – check the trailer out…

Toca Dance lets kids explore their creativity through dance and music. No technical skills are required — it’s is all about wacky, fun and expressive movement. Check this out…
