Finding age-appropriate gadgets for a child can be a challenge. Perhaps your kid wants a giant drone, but maybe you don't trust an 8-year-old with a $150 quadcopter that can crash into the neighbor's roof. Or maybe you need a laptop that's the right size for a fifth-grader's hands and durable enough to survive slipping out of them.

We're here to help, with a list of great gadget gifts, from child-friendly laptops and tablets to build-your-own-robot kits and toys that teach toddlers about programming before they can read and write. All of these devices are fascinating for kids to use on their own or enjoy with their parents.
