Tech Toys for the Holidays – Under $50

It’s that time of year!  Time to look for fun tech toys for kids and adults alike!  We’ve found a few that are inexpensive too!

  • For the Star Wars fans, there’s Uncle Milton Death Star Electronics Lab Kit for just under $ toys - mars rover from wikipedia
  • For preschoolers who are curious about their world, there’s the GeoSafari Jr. Talking Microscope – under $35.
  • Then there’s the Drone Force Vulture Strike Helicopter Toy  which is around $33.
  • There’s always K’nex – one of my favorites!  This building set has 618 pieces and is priced around $40.  Plus there are so many sets that all work together.
  • If your kids want to explore the moon and its craters, you might consider an inexpensive telescope.  If their interest develops, you can get them a better one later on.  This one is about $40.
  • This cool kit lets you build 7 robots which can climb walls and windows!  (This one is also just under $30.)
  • I always thought it would be cool to build a radio.  Here’s an AM/FM radio kit for right around $37.
  • It wouldn’t be a Tech Toys list without the tried and true potato clock for about $13.
