Time is running out! It is peak shopping season so make sure you get the good gifts before it is too late. Here are our favorite toy picks this year. There is a little something for every kiddo on your shopping list!
Circle Home Plus
Our top pick is for the kids, but not something they are going to wish for. But in my opinion, all parents should have some sort of device that enables them to control and monitor internet and digital usage within the home. This is where the Circle Home Plus comes in. Retail $129.99.
Being the easiest, most comprehensive in- and out-of-home parental control solution to manage online use and content, Circle Home Plus is designed to bring balance to the modern-day connected family. Comprised of both a hardware and software component, Circle Home Plus allows parents to set limits, block content, and keep track across all devices (i.e. laptops, tablets, smart TVs, video game consoles, cell phones, etc.), everywhere. The hardware ensures you can manage devices in your home, while the app allows you to manage mobile devices remotely.
