New Technology for Kids and Families


For thSwinxe Little Ones

   Swinx is a tech game without a screen, for kids ages 4-8.  The game has a base unit, plus colored bracelets that players wear to participate in tag, hide and seek, relay races, and charades, among the 25 games available (there will be more to download at swinx.com). Swinx has a rechargeable battery that lasts about 4 hours, so although the unit is rather large, it is lightweight and can easily be brought to the park.  Swinx comes with 4 bracelets, but you can get more; up to 10 kids can play at once. And some games can be played by just one kid, great for when no playdate is available. $150 at www.amazon.com.
