Only moms and dads will ever feel if their child is a genius, or will become one. The thing is, even young budding geniuses need to keep their brain stimulated so they can reach their full potential. But even if a child doesn’t seem to exude genius material, many have proven to be late bloomers by learning through awesome teaching toys.
So whether these tech teaching toys are for geniuses who need to be stimulated or the geniuses of tomorrow, look through these teaching toys from 2016 that may be the teaching toys of tomorrow as well.

The tablet comes included with the Wings Learning System that provides an awesome amount of learning for your pre-K to 5th grade genius in training.

Sparki Robot – the affordable way to learn advanced programming
Sparki Robot from ArcBotics ($149) looks deceptively old-school and low tech, but don’t let its looks fool you because Sparki packs some impressive skills. Kids can learn actual line level programming, like C+ with Sparki. The price is reasonable for a robot kit and is a downright steal when you add in all the lessons on programming and coding that Sparki comes with.
