Top 10 high-tech math tutors
In the old days -- you know, a couple of years ago -- video games were the beeping, pinging distractions that got in the way of homework. Now iPhones, Nintendo, and the Web are homework. Recently the realm of edu-technology has exploded with a wide variety of mind-building games that do everything from teach basic money math to keep arithmetic skills sharp over winter and summer break. The proliferation of options has left parents with homework of their own: sorting out the worthwhile from the mediocre (not to mention the downright idiotic).

Media Matters

iPhone apps for your rug rats
Every day another gazillion iPhone applications are released into the wild, and the vast majority are designed for grownups. But more and more developers, realizing how many young hands are reaching for their parents' phones, are creating apps for kids. The list below highlights some of the more promising entries in the exploding field.

Top-10 educational toys
Over 3 billion toys are sold in the United States annually. We'll refrain from guessing how many end up in the back of the closet for years on end and instead recommend a few we think stand a decent chance of grabbing your child's attention. Needless to say, this list isn't the be-all, end-all. Instead, think of these picks as representative of the kind of toy we're especially fond of: educational, fun, and inventive. When new toys make a beeline for the back for the closet, we believe it's because they lack that trio of qualities. So here's to 10 that strive for, and deliver, something more.

Guilt-free video games
Sure, you could keep your kid from experiencing the ever meaner, ruder, and bloodier world of video games, but it's so expensive to raise a child on a desert island these days. (A recent report says that 57% of 2- to 12-year-olds play video games.) So a growing number of parents are taking a different approach: seeking out games that don't just eschew gore and antisocial mindlessness, but move toward the creative and civilized. A few years ago, this was a relatively new field. Today a variety of inspired choices exists.
