As much as we love the holidays, it’s not always easy to keep our little terrors entertained – especially when it’s pouring down, or they’re feeling under the weather. But, never fear! We’ve got all the top tech you’ll need to turn those dreary days into unforgettable afternoons.
Remember when kids used to spend hours making up dance routines? Well, now yours can do it too – except they’re lucky enough to have endless playlists to strut to! With one of these brilliant smart speakers, they can ask Alexa or Google for any song they like, and it’ll play straightaway. Once they’ve put away their dancing shoes, the speaker can answer their questions too, helping with any summer holiday projects from school. And, it’ll even set reminders, so they won’t forget about that birthday party invite, where they can show off their new moves.
If they’re still full of energy after all that boogying, just hand them these wireless JBL headphones – they’ll practise their routine without Baby Shark blasting, so you can have a minute’s peace. It’s easy to connect them to a tablet or smartphone via Bluetooth, and with a 12 hour battery life, they’ll keep the kids occupied all day. They have a Safe Sound volume limit and padded headband, for extra comfort – and the kids can even personalise them with super-cool stickers.
A perfect partner for the headphones, this Amazon Fire or Samsung Galaxy tablet would be great for keeping the kids busy on rainy days. They can snuggle down with a film, catch up on the best cartoons, or race to the top of the leader board in their favourite games. And, with access to tons of educational content, every day will be a school day! Thankfully, the tablets have parental controls as well. So, you can make sure their curious minds only see what you want them to see – and you can set time limits too, so you know they won’t go square-eyed.
If they’ve managed to get through their entire supply of films and cartoons, it might be time to break out the Nintendo Switch. And if you’re getting a bit fed up of the rubbish British weather, you can join in too. Because of its truly unique design, not only can it be used as a portable console, but it can easily hook up your TV as well. It also comes with two Joy-Con controllers included. So, you’ll have everything you need to help your little one rescue their princess or come first speeding round the racetrack.
