This week's gadget is from Toy Fair and it's called the Kano Computer Kit. For kids 6 years and up, it's a build your own computer kit designed around the Raspberry Pi computer. It has parental control and is great for Minecraft.

It comes with a Raspberry Pi 2, wireless keyboard with multi-touch trackpad, a DIY speaker, power and HDMI cables, Wi-Fi dongle, Kano OS 8GB Memory Card, a US, UK or EU USB power supply, two illustrated story books: “Make a computer” and “Code powers”, and is case-mounted and powered by GPIO. Kids can learn to build their own computer! There's also a build your own monitor kit as well. Both are $149 each, or sold together for $270. There's a special price of $249.00 there as of 2/26/16.
