At this age many children have access to a tablet and enjoy a range of apps. With the right choice of content they can learn so much from these. Apps can help develop their creative side, and help them learn a range of subjects from science to spelling and can make great low cost gifts – individual apps can be easily gifted in iTunes.
Tech toys like Osmo, which works with an iPad, are also particularly popular – offering a range of games in one product from Tangram and the social play of Words to the clever, creative Masterpiece and Newton.
