NEWS$show=/search/label/news

Here's where you'll find all the latest news about technology for children. We love to follow cool new inventions on Kickstarter and we hunt out all the latest announcements about tech toys and gadgets for the coming Christmas holidays. You'll also get our take on children's technology stories in the media.

REVIEWS$show=/search/label/review

Our kids technology product reviews are intended to help you work out whether a toy, gadget or kit is a good fit for your child or family. There's lots of cool stuff available, but is it the right choice for the child or teenager that you are buying for? We'll help you make the right choices and get the best value for money.

GIFT GUIDES$show=/search/label/gift%20guide

Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends assemble. We create gift lists to help you make good choices for kids technology which helps them develop the right skills for the future. We research the best in Coding Toys and Games, Making / Craft Tools and Kits, STEM/STEAM related gifts, Programmable Robots, Electronics Kits and Gadgets for Tech Age Kids and Teens.

PROJECTS$show=/search/label/project

Get crafty with technology. Here we'll post all our ideas and projects using technology to get creative and making with kids. You'll find anything from making a lemon battery to a glow-in-the-dark Minecraft sword. Our projects are tried and tested on our own kids or at events we run, so we are sure you can have a go at home with your kids. Some of our projects use specific tech gadgets which we provide links for you to purchase.

STEM$show=/search/label/stem

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. In recent years there is an increased focus in these areas of study. We like to include Art and Design too, so we often talk about STEAM (A stands for Art). At Tech Age Kids we believe Coding is a new literacy and children need to understand how technology works, practice making skills and grow in their curiosity to make a better future for us all.

CODING$show=/search/label/coding

Coding is increasingly being recognised as an important skill for children to learn. Some will learn to code at school or at a coding club, but it's brilliant if they get support at home too.

ELECTRONICS$show=/search/label/electronics

We think it's really important for kids to get hands-on with electronics and learn how to make circuits and write code to control hardware. Younger kids can start with conductive playdough. For kids who like to combine craft and tech, littleBits are fab. And we love SAM Labs wireless electronics components for making it easy for kids to make Internet of Things inventions. Lots of electronics kits for kids have support for the Arduino microprocessor environment. The DuinoKit Jr is one of our favourites. Arduino is a fab skill for older kids and teens to develop.

ROBOTICS$show=/search/label/robotics

We love robots at Tech Age Kids, especially programmable ones. We've got lots of them and write reviews and projects that use them. Our programmable robots for kids buying guide is a good place to start if you're not sure what's available. Roby the mBot Meccano robot dog is one of our popular projects and has been with us to lots of events. Our Ozobot LEGO trailer is fab for kids who love LEGO and robots.

MAKING AND CRAFT$show=/search/label/making

We're advocates of the creative use of technology, but this needs to be balanced with developing physical skills such as papercraft, woodwork, clay modelling, technical drawing and soldering. If children don't develop these skills as they grow up then physical making projects can become frustrating rather than fun. The Maker Community uses the term 'making' as a broad term to include all sorts of artisan skills or craft activities. Being able to make things can lead to life-long hobbies or even careers. It's a great feeling to be able to take a project from an idea in your head to a real object that does something. We're particularly interested to explore products that combine maker skills with tech skills such as electronics but others focus purely on the physical making skills that are still important to modern making.

Top 10 Halloween Costumes for Tech Age Kids

Costume Express: Avengers - Iron Man
We've put together our list of 10 Top Halloween Costumes for Tech Age Kids, from movies to games and robots. Star Wars The Force Awakes features at the top of our list, as there are great options for boys and girls and we are very excited about the release of the new movie in December. There is a lot of cool toys and gizmos out now for Star Wars, making it a very popular choice. We loved the Big Hero 6 movie and included it's characters, Baymax and Hiro, in our list.

No Tech Age Halloween costume list will be complete without a couple of gaming characters and robots. Our first choice would be the Skylanders Superchargers, which was released this week, but as there are not any costumes available yet, we chose the Skylanders Trap Team Snap Shot costume. Halo 5: Guardians is due to release on the XBox in October and so Halo, Master Chief made it onto our list. We recommend you carefully consider appropriate age rating when selecting games for your kids.

Finally our two robot costumes are in fact from movies too, but technically they are robots or robot-like and supercool, so we gave them their own category. Transformers' cutest character Bumblebee and the amazing Iron Man from The Avenger Age of Ultron.


Note: The costumes are from "Costume Express" and if you purchase before 31 October enter the code: AFCCXP15 for 15% discount sitewide.

    Movies

  1. Darth Vader

    The Dark Side returns this year with the launch of the new Star Wars Episode VII and we believe a Darth Vader costume will be a firm favourite for Halloween.  It will be a cool costume for both girls and boys. 
    Costume Express: Darth Vader


  2. Rey

    Our next two favourites from Star Wars The Force Awakens are costumes for girls - Rey and Captain Phasma.  Rey's outfit is very sweet, but her powers should not be under estimated, she too has a weapon in the form of a staff. 
  3. Captain Phasma

    If you are siding towards the dark side then Captain Phasma will be a perfect choice. Even as an "evil" character her costume is fantastically shiny with a long cape.  The Star Wars movie has already created so much hype, so you may want to kit the whole family out in Star Wars Costumes this Halloween.
  4. Baymax

    Still on the movie category, we really like the characters from Big Hero 6.  Baymax is an adorable larger than life healthcare robot.  We can't think of anything more cool than walking around trick-a-treating in a big white inflatable costume.

  5. Hiro

    Hiro Hamanda loves robots just like us, and his purple,black and red costumes certainly gets our approval. We think Hiro, is a brilliant Tech Age Kids choice for any young aspiring robotics genius.

  6. Miles from Tomorrowland

    Miles Callisto is a Space adventurer traveling through the universe with his family and his best friend, a robo-ostrich named Merc. He's super cute, and has action packed adventures. We love the adorable Miles from Tomorrowland jumpsuit costume, which comes with accessories, including a helmet and laserang (sold separately). Your little explorer will certainly have a blastastic adventure wearing this.

  7. Gaming

  8. Skylanders - Trap Team: Snap Shot

    Skylanders is a "toys to life" video game series published by Activision. The Snap Shot character is a Crocagator (crocodile-like creature), the most revered monster hunter in Skylanders. His costume comes with a jumpsuit, mask and inflatable Traptanium sword. We like the fact he is a great leader and practiced and learned new skills to overcome the notorius villians in Skylanders. This ones was certainly a firm favourite for my boys. There are many older Skylander Characters to choose from too.

    Costume Express: Skylanders Trap Team

  9. Halo - Prestige Master Chief

    Halo is a first person shooter game and centres on a interstellar war between humans and aliens. Master Chief is the central character of the game, a super soldier, with an artificial intelligence (AI) companions, Cortana. Halo Nation kids would likely be very excited about this character come Halloween as Halo 5 is due to release a few days before. The costume definitely has cool factor and comes with a jumpsuit, attached boot tops, harness, gloves, and a helmet.

    Costume Express: Halo

  10. Robots

  11. Transformers - Bumblebee

    The Transformers are very cool robots and really appeal to my boys. The like all of them, but Bumblebee is a favourite, probably because of his sensitive character.

    Costume Express: Transformers - Bumblebee


  12. Avengers Age of Ultron - Iron Man

    OK technically Iron Man is not a robot, but Tony Stark wears a powered armour sute that gives him superhuman strength and durability, flight, and an array of weapons. I went to see the Avengers Age of Ultron which has a lot of science, robots and computing in it, so really right up our Tech Age street. The costume comes with fiber filled muscle chest jumpsuit, foam accents, boot tops, gauntlets and mask. My boys are Iron Man fans, but they also like other Avengers Superheros like Hulk, Captain America and Thor.


If you are still reading then your kids must be as crazy about dressing-up as mine. In fact they would probably love all 10 Halloween Costumes for Tech Age Kids. Off course one gaming character that didn't make our list, is Minecraft. Perhaps you can dig up an old Minecraft box head, and Techagify it by making a glow-in-the-dark Minecraft Diamond Sword
