From toy drones to Furby Booms there are plenty of tech toys for children. But if your child's wish list is lacking in the educational department there are a few standout high-tech toys worth considering.
Tiggly Shapes works with a mobile app. The four colorful, soft, silicone shapes interact with an iPad to teach kids about shapes and to help them develop motor skills, said Trae Bodge, senior editor of Retailmenot.com.
The Ubooly can tell stories, play games and can send your kids on all sorts of creative adventures through simply downloading the app. A user would just need to insert their iOS or Android smartphone into the slot of the stuffed toy so that the phone becomes the face and voice of the Ubooly doll.
That item even works with old phones with no data plan and it gets "smarter" the more a user plays, Bodge noted.
