Holiday gift guide: 3 gadgets for toddlers — yes, you read that right
By Aimee Heckel
This is the modern age, where babies don’t know how to turn pages of actual magazines and treat them like iPads.
That’s why, for our holiday gift guide for kids, we’re offering three pretty sweet gadgets that Santa might just want to bring for your toddler.
1. The “world’s smartest piggy bank,” $69.99 at ThinkGeek.com. No more wondering how much money is in the piggy bank. Porkfolio is a piggy bank that connects to a special app over wifi, to let your kids track their savings balance and set goals. When your munchkin slips in a quarter, the nose lights up.
2. “Goodnight iPad” book, $12.38 at Barnes and Noble. This is a good one for the babe who doesn’t get the concept of paper. This funny spin on the popular classic children’s book, “Goodnight Moon,” is also available for your Nook — but of course.
Raising a little geek? We also love this “HTML for Babies” book, $9.99, available at ThinkGeek.com. Because “it’s never too early to be standards compliant,” as the book explains.
3. Anything from Toys R Us’s electronics section. Because the modern toy store totally has that department. Here, you can pick your kid his own eReader or tablet, like the Tabeo e2 8-inch tablet, $129.99, at Toys ‘R’ Us. This tablet ships free — plus comes with a free tablet accessory.

Bonus: Here’s a great gift for you — something we wish we’d known about for our registry. There’s nothing quite as awkward as walking around carrying a baby monitor. Then the battery runs out and it beeps frantically until you plug it back in. Here’s the solution: a baby monitor that works with your smartphone, $269.99 at ThinkGeek.com.
You can also stream the video from this monitor through your iPad or iPod Touch, and it will text you an alert when it detects motion, sound, temperature and humidity. Oh, where was this when we needed it?
