Bluetooth speakers and STEM toys: two items that we can almost guarantee are on every kid’s holiday list this year.
The BOSEbuild Speaker Cube is a DIY Bluetooth speaker for kids, because what’s cooler than a building kit where the finished product can actually be used on a daily basis? Nothing, that’s what.
Highly rated on Amazon, this build-it-yourself speaker is technically for kids, but any adult would be lying if they said they didn’t want to try it out. The Apple-compatible and user-friendly app guides kids through the building process, stopping for fun hands-on games and level completion tasks along the way. Not only do the kids get to build the product themselves, but they get to personalize it, right down to the color of the lights and interchangeable covers.
Everything they need to build the speaker is included, and though it may seem super high-tech, a magnet, coil, and paper is all that’s involved. Through the app, they’ll learn how sound is made with these items, and will be thrilled when their lesson turns into something tangible. Plus, once it’s done, the whole family can reap the rewards and listen to music wirelessly.
Here it is in action:
