The Best STEM Tech Toys 2017 That Geek Dads and Moms Can Gift Their Kids

Learning to code or understanding technology is fun with these toys.

There are the viral hot Holiday toys, like Fingerlings. These toys are not necessarily the best toys to gift this Christmas. Innovative toy makers have created tech toys that are more than just fun to play with. These toys teach kids necessary skills for their future.

Kids can learn to code with a variety of tech toys that are foremost fun to play with. Coding becomes a natural thing to do as its part of the gameplay. Our favorite tech toys that teach kids how to code are Lego Boost, Ubtech Jimu Builderbots, Cozmo and the Wonder Workshop Dash Robot.

Another category of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) teach kids how the technology works. These toys let kids build computers or a droid. A great example is the new Star Wars Droid Inventor Kit, now on sale for $79.

The Piper Computer Kit with Minecraft Raspberry Pi edition is teaching kids how computers work. Coding is also part of the Piper Computer Kit experience. The Piper Computer Kit is endorsed by legendary Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak: "I love Piper because it represents what enabled me to do all the great technology things in my life." The Kano Computer kit is a valid alternative to the Piper.

A cutting edge tech toy that combines Star Wars and robotics is the Star Wars Stormtrooper Robot from UBTech. This robot toy has it all. Augmented reality, voice commands, facial recognition and sentry patrolling capabilities. The Star Wars R2-D2 app-enabled droid is on sale for only $91. With the Sphero Edu app, you can write code to control this very realistic R2-D2 droid.
