We’re just going to come out and say it- anyone who claims that they only buy holiday gifts so their loved ones are happy is either a saint or not being completely honest. We also want to earn the reputation of a good gift-giver. And for the most part, we manage it pretty well. It’s usually the kids’ section of the list that puts us in a bind.

How do you find something that’s appropriately time-consuming, stimulating and entertaining enough that the kids like? Seems like a daunting and unachievable feat, doesn’t it? Well, thanks to the modern-age tech-savvy toys, having all these amazing features in a single toy is possible. The problem with technology, however, is that it doesn’t stay “in” forever. Every holiday season, there’s a whole new bunch to browse through.

So, we decided to get in touch with two of the most popular tech-savvy toy brands, VTech and LeapFrog, to help us get through our holiday shopping. As brands that have been producing fun, innovative and educational toys for years, the folks here have some great ideas for tech-friendly toys that will make you very popular with those little ones in your life.

Below is a list of 10 cool tech-friendly toys you ought to check out this season.
