This wiki has been updated 3 times since it was first published in December of 2018. If you remember flash cards as big, boring pieces of thick paper with math equations written on them, you're well behind the times. These augmented reality versions bring their subject matter to life, combining with digital apps to animate the illustrations featured on each one. They're fantastic for teaching kids basic skills, and best of all, they keep them entertained for hours on end. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best augmented reality flash card on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

December 19, 2018:

If any of these models have shortcomings, they're likely to be found in the companion apps rather than the cards themselves. Some are frustratingly glitchy, while others only work with one operating system. Be sure to take that into account before making your purchase. Beyond that, it's simply a matter of finding a subject that will keep your kids engaged.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
