This year’s tech toy offerings have something for everyone, whether you’re a toddler or an adult who remains young at heart. We’re loving all the classic kids toys that have been given a new technical twist, like guns with soft rubber bullets that can connect to online game servers and shape-matching puzzles for the iPad. Tech is also getting some personality, thanks to interactive and intelligent robotics. Here are our favorite tech toys of 2013.
Tek Recon by Tech 4 Kids is turning the entire world into a video game. At its core, the Tek Recon is a powerful and fun action blaster gun, shooting soft rubber rings up to 80 feet. But the Tek Recon also incorporates a feature-filled smartphone app, capable of supporting massive multiplayer games with gameplay mimicking the popular video game Halo.
