From GPS tracking watches for the under-10 set to wearable thermometers, it was a big year for kid-friendly tech (and, FYI, there are no signs of it slowing down in the new year). Flip through the album below to get a closer look at some of our favorite gizmos and gadgets that streamlined family life like a boss over the last 365 days.

Brush with Greatness

Singing songs and counting only goes so far when it comes to kids getting in that tooth brushing quality time. That’s where Kolibree, a one-of-a-kind electric tooth brush that is equipped with vibrating technology and sensors to interact with gamified mobile apps comes in handy. The kids can learn about dental hygiene in a fun game-like way, and you'll be able to track their brushing skills.

Available at, $149.
