This Gamer Kit from Tech Will Save Us lets kids become their own game inventor. Starting by building their own console, they can then code their own game—choosing from 15+ retro games or or custom-building their own. Best of all, not much at all is needed to play: the kit, a nine-volt battery and a laptop or desktop computer to code on. The brand’s online platform offers lots of free projects, but the possibilities for creation are almost endless.

They’re packed away, when not in use, in a stainless steel case that also acts as its charger. And no worries about either of them falling out of the ear—the wide range of bulbs and “fit wings” lets you customize the size to your liking.
