Talking Target Tech Holiday Shopping with Liz Gumbinner

Our family is a techie family.

I married a man who is obsessed with all things tech, and quite honestly… this love for technology rubbed off on me very early on in our relationship. I still like to joke around that we were the only couple living in a tiny small studio apartment in NYC back in 2000 with 3 different computers!

As we have gotten married and gone on to have our 4 little boys, our love and passion for technology has only grown stronger and stronger. The boys have known about laptops and computers and smartphones since they first learned to talk!

So… when it came to holiday shopping this year, it was clear that we definitely wanted to get some items for the boys that were techie, but ultra-FUN. I always like to know what’s the hottest techie gifts for kids each season and I was excited to see one of my blogging friend’s Liz Gumbinner was working with Target on dishing the latest and greatest for all things techie for the holidays. Target is my go-to destination throughout the year, and I just love that I am able to buy groceries, household needs, clothing, toys AND all the latest tech gadgets in ONE spot.

I love these words from Liz because they’re so true… “I realized technology was an essential part of life when I became a mom. As a busy parent, I use electronics to organize my life and my kids’ schedules. From my smartphone to a portable TV streaming system, electronics helps my kids and me maintain order and stay entertained!”

So what did Liz recommend as some hot tech gifts for the holidays and beyond that would work perfectly for the special guys in my life?

1) Skylanders Giants Starter Pack and Skylanders Giants Granite Crusher

My sons are OBSESSED with Skylanders. I mean, OBSESSED. We have a poster hanging in our KITCHEN and it’s all they seem to want to play.

2) iPads

I love an iPad because you have everything at your fingertips. As a digital family, I love that ease and convenience of an iPad. iPad features a stunning Retina display, iSight and FaceTime cameras, the all-new A6X chip, and ultrafast wireless. And with access to over 275,000 apps on the App Store, you can do more than ever.

3) Nabi 2

Liz introduced this to me, I had never heard of the Nabi 2 before. nabi 2 is the fastest, most powerful tablet made for kids dedicated to delivering the most amazing experiences in: “Learn. Play. Grow. For Life.” With its exclusive Monarch OS layer, built on top of Android 4.0, nabi 2 delivers over 150 new features. I think I’ve told just about everyone about these now!

4) Wii U

OK… this was on all 4 of our sons’ lists for the Santa. They were DYING for this! We scooped one up at Target and I’m even going to share how excited they were to get it!
