Three tech-centric gift ideas for young children


The season of gift-giving is upon us. This means millions of people will be scouring the internet and stores to find that perfect item for loved ones. A good portion of those loved ones are children.

Times have changed, and kids these days are hoping for tech-centric gifts instead of Play-Doh. So here are three tech-centric gift ideas for young children that may work out for you.


Three tech-centric gift ideas for young children
  • Greenlight is a debit card for kids, teens, and college students that parents manage by the app, using our powerful and flexible parental controls
  • Greenlight has two companion apps — one for kids and one for their parents. Kids have 4 tabs on their app: Save (where they can set savings goals and round up to save automatically), Spend (with spending limits for built-in budgeting), Earn (for chore management) and Give (where they can explore, research, and donate to charities)
  • With Greenlight, kids can give back to the community this holiday season. Using their Give account, kids are able to look up charities and send money to the ones that matter most to them
  • With every cent saved, donation made, dollar spent and chore completed, Greenlight kids are forming smart money habits that will stick with them for life

Greenlight makes a great gift for parents, too! Parents can:

  • Instantly send their kids money — anytime, anywhere. No last-minute trips to the ATM!
  • Choose where their kids can spend and how much they can spend at individual stores
  • Set a Parent-Paid Interest rate to incentivize saving
  • Assign and manage chores
  • Put allowance on autopilot for timely allowance paydays
