Looking for summer toys to please your junior gamer, but want to get them out of the house too? The Nintendo Switch Lite gaming console has got you covered. This handheld device features built-in controllers and requires no wired connections whatsoever (excluding the charger). Because of its lightweight, compact size, the Switch can be taken on the go anywhere your child wants. Nintendo offers a large number of physical games for purchase, as well as an online library of downloadable games to add to their collection. When setting up a Nintendo account, your child also has the option to add their friends and play with them virtually too. Don’t forget to take advantage of the Parental Controls app so you can set gaming guidelines from your smart device.

Arcade1Up Infinity Game Table

One of the summer toys the whole family can enjoy is the Arcade1Up Infinity Game Table. This large tablet-like device holds 48 different games for all ages, allowing up to six players to participate at a time. The screen is high-resolution and uses haptic feedback sensors to truly immerse each person into worlds of fun. The legs of the table are completely removable, allowing you to take the Infinity Game Table to a friend’s house or on vacation. Don’t worry about accidental damage either, as the glass screen is extremely durable and the whole device is water resistant.

For Outdoor Adventurers

Did you know the outdoor recreation technology at Abt isn’t just for adults? This Segway Ninebot eKickScooter Zing C8 is one of the most exciting summer toys, as six to twelve-year-olds can take rides around the neighborhood without sacrificing safety. This scooter can reach a maximum speed of 10 mph and has a range of 6.5 miles before needing a charge. Kids can choose from three riding modes: cruise, turbo or safe. If your kid dares to take on turbo, though, investing in a helmet is recommended. The reliable mechanical braking system comes in the form of an easy-to-use hand brake. The scooter’s construction is conveniently lightweight as well, so if your child gets tired, carrying the scooter home will be no trouble.

DJI Mini 2 SE Drone

Give your child the power to recreate their favorite action-packed chase scenes with the DJI Mini 2 SE drone. This flying camera can capture up to 10 km of HD video transmission, creating a beautiful shot every time. While summer toys like this drone may seem too advanced or breakable for your child, this is far from the truth. The DJI Mini is lightweight yet durable, guaranteeing stable flight even when flying in level-five winds. Operating this drone is easy; just take off and land with a single tap. You’ll never lose this device either, as you can rely on the Return-To-Home feature when the battery runs low. If your child still wants extra drone support, the DJI Fly app comes with plenty of instructions and tutorials too. Also, the compact design allows the DJI Mini 2 SE to be portable, so they can continue flying in new, unexplored places.
