When it comes to Christmas Shopping there are a few different styles of shoppers out there. The chronic procrastinator and the early bird. The online shopper and the mall walker. Those with carefully planned out shopping lists and those with no clue what to get. No matter your shopping style we all want to shop smarter, and give gifts that will be loved. This is why RadioShack wants to help you Gift Smart this year!
I was asked to check out two gift ideas from RadioShack as a small sampling of the large selection of interactive toys and innovative products they have curated to be a perfect fit for just about anyone on your list this holiday season. Toys that encourage the development of STEM ( (science, technology, engineering & math) skills are definitely top gift ideas this year. I am a big fan of the incredibly innovative STEM toys available from RadioShack including The Roominate 3-in-1 Helicopter Play Set and the littleBits Premium Kit we were sent
The Roominate 3-in-1 Helicopter Play Set ($19.99) is a wired building kit that can be used to build a helicopter, airplane or submarine or your child can use their imagination and use the pieces to design their own project since the pieces snap together in different ways. This 44-piece set includes 24 furniture building pieces, 12 connectors, 2 arches, a switch, motor, battery pack, screwdriver, doll and pet – the parts necessary to build a spinning propeller and more. How cool is that?
I love that the Roominate 3-in-1 Helicopter Play Set is obviously fun but what a wonderful way to help children develop their problem solving, spatial, and fine motor skills; not to mention learning about basic circuitry! I also appreciate that it is obviously geared towards girls which is so refreshing and a wonderful toy to empower girls (and boys!) to become more confident with technology.
The littleBits Premium Kit ($149.99) is the perfect gift for the creative person on your list. It includes literally anything and everything you would need to design your own electronic project. It also comes with a 9V battery, a custom-made screwdriver for fine-tuning, a vibeSnap to attach your Vibration Motor and a reusable case.
It also comes with a project booklet with 10 amazing projects and there are also hundreds of other project ideas online to get your creativity flowing. This particular kit includes all that is necessary to build projects like a magic 8 ball, bubble maker and more since there are over 600,000 circuit combinations possible. You can also expand on the kit since there is a large variety of different modules available at RadioShack. What an amazing and unique gift idea!
Of course this is just a tiny sampling of all the Smart Gifts RadioShack has taken the time to curate for this holiday season. Other cool ideas include drones, wireless headphones, bluetooth speakers and robotics starter kits.

I don’t know if you have somehow missed the amazing Weird Al tv spot for RadioShack’s Gift Smart campaign, but here it is just because I love it and think it best sums up why RadioShack is an awesome place to shop for the holidays!
