Playbrush Smart Toothbrush


Playbrush's smart kids toothbrushes aim to make dental care fun. Combined with interactive game apps, children can playfully learn how to brush their teeth and prevent cavities. The toothbrushes are available in two variants

- the Playbrush Smart, which is an intelligent toothbrush attachment (featured in this guide) and
- the Playbrush Smart Sonic which is a smart sonic toothbrush!

Playbrush Smart Toothbrush


Both the brushes make use of Playbrush's unique technology which translates brushing movements into the brand's app and gives feedback on coverage, pressure, speed, duration and frequency. Some of the key features of the app are: 12 fun games, a brushing coach and detailed brushing statistics.

This would make for a fun and practical gift for smaller kids. PlayBrush Smart is priced at £24.99 and available to buy from PlayBrush - uk.playbrush.com

Tobbie the self guiding AI Robot DIY


This DIY AI Robot is aimed at kids aged 8 or more. However, for those closer to 8 years adult supervision will be needed to assemble the robot. But it promises to be a fun project. Kids can do it with their friends/siblings or the entire family can come together to build the robot.

Tobbie, the robot, has 2 modes - 'Follow me' where he will follow anything moving and 'Explore' where he uses his IR sensor to avoid obstacles. Tobbie also has lights and sounds as one would expect from a robot and walks on 6 legs.

Tobbie the self guiding AI Robot DIY


The assembling of Tobbie is the main and most entertaining part and once assembled you can watch the robot operate autonomously. Tobbie would be a good idea as an introduction to model building, AI or electronics in general.

Priced at £29.99, Tobbie, the robot, can be ordered online from BrightMinds, an award-winning home shopping company that sell educational toys, gifts, games and children's books for ages 0-14+ years.

Don't Rock The Boat


Suitable for ages 5 years and above, Don't Rock The Boat is a fun and challenging game. Players take turns trying to balance the playing pieces which include penguins, an octopus, a crab among other things on the ship. The aim is to not rock the boat. The first player to rock the ship causing it to tip is the one to lose. It is a great game for young kids as it teaches them about balance.

Don't Rock The Boat


Don't Rock The Boat is priced at £19.99 and can be purchased online from www.interplayuk.com


Easyread Time Teaching Wrist Watch


A kids watch that not only looks great but also helps them to tell the time; the Easyread Time Teaching Wrist Watch would make an excellent gift for 5-6 year olds. The watch has a red & blue face, Seiko movement, stainless steel back and non-allergenic plating with washable fabric strap. The watch face has all the information that a child would need to learn to tell the time and it looks stylish too. So, they are sure to enjoy wearing it and at the same time learn to confidently tell the time on an analog clock.

Easyread Time Teaching Wrist Watch

Small enough to fit into a pocket, the walkie talkies can be used outdoors or indoors with a range up to 3km. They can be used on 3 different channels and come with night light and call alert features. Great for outdoor explorations!

Danny's Dream - Children's Book


'Danny’s Dream', is a touching children’s book illustrated by Ian Parker. Ian, who was born with AMC, a condition that rendered him with permanently unusable limbs, spent two years painting all 35 illustrations for the book using a pencil and brush in his mouth. This is the first time an artist with a disability has been involved in creating a children's book that features a central character of a disabled child.
