For those looking for tech gifts that will stimulate a child’s creativity and are light on the pocket as well, a learning system may be the answer. Learning systems for children of all ages are now becoming more high-tech. There are models that mimic the iPad, run on Android, and are Wi-Fi and 3G capable.

Here are some top trends to look forward to:

Tablet look-alikes: Because of the popularity of tablet PCs, learning systems for kids come in form factors and sizes similar to popular models such as the iPad. Several releases function in the same manner as well, utilizing a touchscreen for input. Products are loaded with preset learning programs.

Sophisticated features: For better value, new designs for older students have additional functions, including Wi-Fi and 3G capability. Some run on Android to enable download of more educational and game applications.

Novelty housings: Models for preschoolers come in bright colors with innovative housings shaped as butterflies, dogs, cats and rabbits. Licensed cartoon figures are also popular.
