The Best Bluetooth Trackers for Kids Toys
Bluetooth trackers like PebbleBee and Tile weren't necessarily invented to track your baby's teddy bear, but they sure do a good job of it.
“The internet of things” promises to one day connect everything to anything, but in the meantime, you’d probably settle for making sure you can find Boo Bear when your kid is about to melt down over not having Boo Bear. Bluetooth trackers are small tags you can attach to toys and stuffed animals that communicate with your smartphone through an app, which keep tabs on the tag within a few hundred feet, record the tag’s last location when it’s out of range, and beep as you get closer when you’ve misplaced it. PebbleBee ($25 – $30) and Tile ($20) are among the most well reviewed Bluetooth trackers, and both will keep Boo Bear on a short leash – you can also hook them onto a belt loop and use them to keep tabs on your kid.
