5. Water Dancing Speaker




If you’re searching for a cool gift – this next idea is going to be hard to beat. This water fountain speaker will dance to changes in audio volume and tone. Playing different songs and watching the speaker adapt to different beats is fascinating! This water speaker would make the perfect addition to your 11 year olds room (it looks especially unique in the dark!) You can easily connect to any device via a Bluetooth connection or plug into the speaker directly with the included aux cord. A lot of the water dancing speakers you will find are not very durable or high quality. This speaker is of excellent quality and built to last (a bit more expensive than others, but well worth it!)
