As technology continues to improve our day-to-day lives with the rise of smart home devices, tech toys have also seen a rise in popularity, and they’re set to be the biggest trend this Christmas. Toy makers are creating user-friendly products for both children and parents alike. But even with the popularity of tech-toys continuing to rise, classic toys are still a firm favourite.”
