We’ve come a long way since Lincoln Logs and Etch-a-Sketches. Kids toys are becoming just as high-tech as the gadgets that Mom and Dad carry around, and our time at Toy Fair 2014 proved the high-tech trend won’t be slowing down anytime soon. Products like the Nerf Cam Gun put a technological twist on a toy that kids know and love, while the latest gizmos from LittleBits and Modular Robotics make any child feel like an expert engineer. It’s going to be quite the plugged-in year for kids, so here are seven hot tech-toys to look out for in 2014.
Are you or your child the type to sneak up on friends with a surprise Nerf attack? Thanks to the Nerf Cam ECS-12 gun, you can record your exploits. This brand-new blaster mounts a 0.3-MP camera on top of a 12-round Nerf assault rifle, allowing you to capture your best foamy firefights in first person. With its built-in 4GB SD card for transferring content, we expect to see lots of kids uploading their most heated battles when the $79 shooter launches this fall.
