Here at MAMA.codes, we believe that there is always time for learning through play. With Christmas around the corner, we have curated our favourite STEM and coding-inspired gifts for kids, to help our engaged community of enthusiastic parents find great and educational gifts for their children, nieces, nephews and friends!

1. My Gator Watch

A Wearable Phone with GPS tracker for Kids aged 5-12, who are too young for smartphones but want some independence.

The watch allows calls and voice messages to a whitelist of phone numbers (Mum, Dad, Granny…) with an accompanying app that shows the wearer’s location, and an SOS feature that calls several of their closest contacts at the touch of a button.
