Note: I was invited as media to this event and received a gift bag. However any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.
While all toys are fun to play with, this year I looked for toys that offered a different play experience. And yes I looked for a few tech related toys also. Come on. Here are a few that caught my eye. And my son hands.
Since it was #TakeYourChildToWorkDay, my son came with me to share which toys he thought were cool. And share he did. While playing with everything. LOL
