Makey Makey by JoyLabz
This clever invention kit lets your child turn everyday objects into a keyboard or computer game controller. Kids don’t need to know anything about computer programming to use Makey Makey. But through play, it can teach them a lot about circuitry.
What to consider: Kids with reading issues or those who have trouble following directions may need some help getting this technical toy up and running. But once your child understands how it works, he’ll be able to play with it for hours on end. It’s best if he does have a basic interest in electronics, though.
