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.



Safety Certified with a Powerful Glide

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. For additional protection, we added non-slip foot platforms, and system safety features including Auto Shutdown.

Few hoverboards can boast the power and seamlessness provided by the GOTRAX HOVERFLY. The dual 250W motors combined with the space-age gyroscopic self-balancing electric scooter technology create a smooth and controlled hoverboard riding experience.

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.

PRIME DAY is coming up on 7/16! Use the code 15mommyworks for 15% off all gotrax electronic rideables until July 21st!

Card Caddy-Playing Card Case Giveaway @thecardcaddy


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.



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.

Godparents Gift Inspiration Ideas

Image Source: Deposit Photos



A godparent offers their godchild the chance to talk about the biggest concerns in life, and helps them figure out the answers to life’s greatest questions. Godparents are a model for any godchild, encouraging them to develop Christian values. Their godchild will learn how to be compassionate towards others, generous and kind. Your child’s godparents would pray for your child through their ups and downs, helping him in him journey.

One way to show your respect can be offering them a gift. In what follows, we will offer you a list of ideas that could help you decide which is the most suitable gift for your child’s godparents. Here you could find the best gifts for godparents. Mainly, in this situation, personalized gifts could be the best choice.

1.Personalized Glass or Mug

Are your kid’s godparents coffee lovers? How about tea lovers? If the answer to one of these is yes, then you should definitely consider purchasing them two personalized mugs. In this way, every morning, when they will sip on their coffee or tea, they’d think about their little godchild and how much they mean to them. Make sure you choose a suitable message to print on the mug to warm the godparents’ hearts.

2.Engraved Wooden Photo Frame

A picture is worth a thousand words. Therefore, you should consider framing one of the best pictures your child has with his/her godparents. They would be more than happy to place it on their nightstand. Make sure you engrave a heart-warming message on the frame, immortalizing their best moment together. You could consider a photo from your child’s baptism or one from their godmother or godfather’s birthday party.

3.Name a Star

Since godparents are so special, why not name a star after them? You could find an online guide to help you do that and obtain a certificate. In this way, one of the stars that shines at night would have your child’s godparents’ names. They would be thrilled with this present and very surprised.

4.Birth Flowers

Another inspired idea would be offering your kid’s godparents birth flowers. They could plant the seeds in a flower pot and take care of the flower that grows there. In this way, they would watch the flower grow just like they would watch their godchild grow. Godparents would be more than happy with this gift. Furthermore, this birth flower also helps them nurture their gardening skills, helping them stay active and enjoy the flowers in the garden.

5.Photo Upload Cushion

If you liked the photo idea but you think a normal photo is too mainstream, you should consider printing one on a cushion. Hence, your child’s godparents would decorate their living room sofa with a cushion, completing their collection. It is always nice to keep your dear ones close to you. You would definitely put a smile on their faces with this incredible gift.

6.Religious Gift

Since they are your child’s protectors, offering them the Bible would be suitable. Your little one’s godparents would pray for their godchild whenever they need it. Furthermore, they would also teach them about religion and how important their relationship with God is.

7.Personalized Glass Token

Both the godfather and godmother would be thrilled to receive such interesting gifts. Purchase them two glass tokens on which you can engrave “World’s best godmother” and “World’s best godfather” to make them feel complete for being part of your big family. They would proudly display these gifts in their living room for everyone to see, praising their godchild.

8.Personalized Scented Candle

The perfume of this candle will float in your kid’s godparents’ house. Make sure you print a funny message on the candle’s jar. Godparents would be thrilled to receive such a nice gift.


Irrespective whether it is your child’s godfather’s or godmother’s birthday or not, a gift is always a great idea to show your gratitude. You do not need a special occasion to offer someone gifts. Do not forget that godparents are spiritual parents for your little ones, being ready to help whenever your child needs them. Furthermore, they also teach him or her how to live his life in a Christian way, being close to God.
