Kids will have a BLAST on the GOTRAX HOVERFLY ECO Hoverboard

 

 

I was very intrigued when Hoverboards first came out. They sound so fun and were very cool to look at. My kids were still little so I knew I wasn’t going to get one right away. With my oldest now almost 10, she has been asking about Hoverboards since some of her friends have them. We were very excited to review the GOTRAX HOVERFLY ECO Hoverboard.

The HOVERFLY was constructed by our top spaceflight engineers to provide the utmost safety for every commander and citizen of the GOTRAX GALAXY. All electric, battery, and charging systems are tested and certified to UL 2272 safety standards for self-balancing electric scooters hoverboards.

GALACTIC HOVERBOARD FEATURES & SPECS

 

When you receive your Hoverboard, it will come in a really fun designed box my daughter loved. The hoverboard will be inside,  a charger, protective bumpers, commander’s manual, and the quick launch galaxy guide. The overboard weighs about 23 lbs. The hoverboard comes in 7 colors. I decided to get the Neptune Blue which to me is just like a really pretty “baby blue.”

The hoverboard came fully charged, which was a plus since my kids wanted to try it out right away! We read over the quick launch galaxy guide and put the hoverboard into training mode. We have a very large downstairs living area, so she tried it on the carpet first incase she fell. Make sure your child has a helmet, knee and elbow pads when they are using the hoverboard. It does take a bit to balance on it when you first try it out. I held her hand until she figured how to balance properly. It only took her an hour or so to learn how to balance and ride herself. We have had it a week now and she uses it every day! It is super easy for kids and adults to use.

The minimum weight limit is 44 pounds and the max is 220 pounds. Perfect for children and adults to have fun. I know my husband loves it!

Before I decided to review this product, I did some research to make sure this hoverboard didn’t have any fire or safety issues. All of the electrical, battery, and charger systems are tested and certified to UL 2272 safety standard guides. 

This would make an out of this world birthday gift or holiday gift for any child or adult! The GOTRAX HOVERFLY is on sale right now for $179.00.

 

You can purchase this awesome Hoverboard from GOTRAX or Amazon.

Card Caddy-Playing Card Case Giveaway @thecardcaddy

CARD CADDY

The ONLY playing card case that turns into a discard tray so you can keep your cards safe, then play anywhere, anytime!
We’re all looking for ways to spend quality time with friends and family and a game of cards is a great way to do it.  But those paper boxes the cards come in fall apart quickly and then your cards are easily lost or damaged.  Then when it’s time to play a game, those draw and discard piles get knocked over and it’s tough to play if you don’t have a level surface.  The Card Caddy solves both of these problems, appeals to a wide market and is attractively priced at $5.99 for our Single Decker and $6.99 for the Double Decker. The 5-pack is available for $26.99. It has a wide range of appeal to parents who want a portable alternative to their kids playing on their devices; players of traditional card games like Bridge, Canasta, Rummy, casino games and countless others;  and tabletop gamers and collectors of trading cards.

The ONLY playing card case which converts to a discard tray so you can play a game of cards anywhere, anytime. The Single Decker holds a standard 54 card deck or up to 40 sleeved collectible cards. Available in 6 colors, or order 2 cases to mix and match your case for your own personal style. Now available in Camo swirl pattern, too (each swirl pattern is unique).

I think Card Caddy is a fabulous idea! I know when I buy my kids playing cards, or any type of card game, the boxes always fall apart. I love this idea and how it keeps the cards safe and you won’t damage or lose them. Card Caddy is great for any type of playing card or trading cards. Card Caddy would also make a fabulous holiday gift or birthday gift!

Here is information about the Inventor, Chris Nichols, and the Card Caddy:

My name is Chris Nichols the inventor of the Card Caddy. When my step-son was around 5 years old, he was obsessed with Uno. I grew up playing card games of all sorts with my grandmother and wanted to foster that same love of cards with him. We carried around a couple of decks of cards, bound with rubber bands, stuffed back into the box, or just scattered in the bottom of a my wife’s purse.  When it came time to play – often somewhere without a level, solid surface for the draw and discard piles – the stacks of cards fell over, blew away or slid down into the crevice of the car seat.

For Christmas that year, I made the original version of the Card Caddy in my workshop out of scrap wood.  It was bulky and clunky, but it was a big hit and solved my frustrations.  After a couple of iterations, I’ve put together an improved version and would like to the share the idea with card lovers everywhere. 

Whether you’re a harried parent who wants a mobile entertainment option other than “a device”, a hardcore Trading Card Gamer who has a lot invested in your deck, or just someone who likes to have a deck of cards handy for a game-on-the-go, the Card Caddy is for you.

 

**GIVEAWAY**

We are excited to partner with Card Caddy to give you the opportunity to win a 5-pack! Enter using the Rafflecopter below. U.S. residents only. Giveaway ends on 7/10.

And there you have a SNAPABLE, adorable T’shirt with exchangeable mini toys. 4 emojis, 1 large and 3 small bugs come with each shirt. 4 toys total can be snapped on to each shirt. Once completed we pack everything happily into a clear Chinese takeout container to make giving this gift ever so easy and fun. We make each shirt individually and all toys will vary, especially the bugs. Placement of the snaps on the shirts will also vary, we really make one by one and take our time giving each shirt it’s individual look. Boys and girls love them equally to play with, count and trade them or exchange and share on the playground.

I was able to review a t-shirt for my son and a ballet skirt for my daughter. My son is all about creepy crawly bugs and my daughter loves emojis so they are thrilled with their new Snapables clothing! Each order comes in really cute see through chinese take-out containers. They are perfect to hold all of your fun toy snaps!

The clothes are offered in sizes 3T-6T. Each article of clothing comes with 4 permanent snaps on them. They also come with a variety of fun themed toy snaps to snap on to the permanent snaps.

My daughter loves to twirl in the skirt and my son loves showing off his cool shirt to his friends. Your kiddos are sure to love these stylish and fun shirts/skirts as well!
