Cool Electronic Toys That Bring the Family Together

Large family watching television while boy plays video gamesAll too often, technology is seen as something that divides us. Our screens pull us away from conversations. Computers send us down rabbit holes of videos and games. Phones buzz and interrupt dinner.

But what if things could be different? What if we could use technology to bring the whole crew together and wrap up the year with the best memories yet? At Rent-A-Center, we think it’s possible!

How Modern Technology Brings Family Together

Coordinate a karaoke night.

If the weather outside is frightful, you don’t have to go out to make memories this season! Take advantage of the moments when the whole family is home with entertainment electronics like the LG XBOOM Entertainment System. With built-in karaoke and DJ effects, you can plug in and sing your heart out from the living room. Ordinary Tuesday nights become TUNES-day night parties in a snap!

Play video games as a family.

Playstation 4If you and your loved ones thrive on competition, gaming could be the perfect way to bring your family together. Rent-A-Center knows that video games are far more fun when you’re together, so our gaming bundles come with two controllers.

Whip up some homemade hot cocoa and challenge your family to a Nintendo Switch tournament, or expand your network with live web matches on a new Xbox One. Need to seamlessly switch between video games and everyone’s favorite streaming show? A PlayStation 4 is your answer. From music to movies and everything in between, the options for what you can do with a PS4 are endless!

Enjoy some old-fashioned arcade games.

Maybe modern gaming consoles aren’t your speed. That’s cool, too! Bring back the thrill of old-fashioned arcade games in your media or game room. Show the kids how it’s done with a round of Pacman, or gather around to cheer each other on during an arcade-style NBA game.

Why Is Technology Good for Families?

As the holiday season picks up, it’s easy to feel disconnected from people you may not see every day (and let’s be real, even those you DO see!). Whether you’re missing loved ones across the country or just on the night shift at work, modern technology can bring families together like never before!

Stay in contact with group messaging and social media apps on a new smartphone. Gadgets for indoor fun – like tablets and laptops – make it easy to set up virtual field trips for the kids or video chats with long-distance relatives. Plus, with Rent-A-Center’s Worry-Free Guarantee, you can choose the payment schedule that works best for your budget, so you can enjoy your new gadgets while focusing on what’s important — creating family memories you’ll cherish forever!

With so much time spent at home these days, it’s more important than ever to prioritize quality family time. Snuggle up on your comfy couch and have a family-only movie night! Choose a theme for your movie marathon, or plan one that celebrates all the warm holiday vibes complete with seasonal snacks! Whatever cinema theme you choose, make sure your movie night is picture-perfect with a new TV, like the Samsung 65″ 4K UHD LED Smart TV. And for an added bonus, install a new home theater system that immerses you in every scene of your family’s favorite holiday classics.
