We spent 27 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Electronics toys for children range from color-coded logic circuits that kids can snap together like Lincoln Logs to programmable robots that your budding geniuses can train to outsmart other programmable robots. They're all designed to teach the basics of a STEM (Science, Technology, Electronics and Mathematics) education that will prepare students for the wired world of the 21st century. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best electronics kit for kids on Amazon.
