ReTrak Utopia 360° 4D+ Augmented and Virtual Reality Space Exploration Bundle for Kids Review

My 9 year old daughter is starting to love learning about Space. She is constantly looking up space related articles and pictures via the internet to learn more about the planets and solar system. I was contacted by ReTrak to review their Utopia 360° 4D+ Augmented and Virtual Reality Space Exploration Bundle for kids and it sounded like something she would love.

 

 

Embark on an out of this world adventure with ReTrak’s 4D+ Space Exploration Augmented and Virtual Reality Bundle. It’s designed to work with the fully-featured Space 4D+ app for a truly immersive experience. Just scan the cards with your preferred device and watch the space objects come to life in 4D!

4D+ Utopia 360° Space Exploration: Augmented Reality Cards & VR Headset

  • Includes Utopia 360° VR Headset and 26 AR cards
  • Works with the interactive and fully-featured Space 4D+ app
  • Explore the 3D library and learn about planets, the solar system, space objects and space missions
  • Drives space rovers with on-screen controls
  • Capture fun augmented reality photos of space objects in your real world environment
  • Go on a 360° virtual tour of the international space station and the solar system
  • Compatible with smartphones, tablets and VR headsets
  • Perfect for ages 7+  $39.99

Both of my kids are really getting into the whole 3D and virtual reality stuff. This set is really cool! It is also super easy for kids to use. Just download the Space 4D app on your smartphone or tablet (works with Apple or Google Play) and follow the easy instructions. I downloaded the app on my smartphone and also my daughter’s tablet because for her the tablet is easier using the AR cards. What I love about this set is you can use the AR cards with or without the VR headset. While using the app you can play with the cards on your smart phone or tablet all while learning about the planets and solar system! You can even have a really cool tour of the international space station! My daughter loved that part. You can also “drive” the land rovers on your smart phone or tablet and use on screen controls. So much fun to have with this set!  The app also has a 3D Library where you can scroll through different space objects and learn facts about them.

 

The headset is made of good quality and doesn’t feel cheap or like it is going to break. It has a built in action button which is also compatible with other virtual reality apps you can download. There are a couple selections when you want to use the VR headset. Once you have the app up and running on your phone, make sure to click VR-Mode and then you will see three selections. VR Space lets you fly through space and explore the solar system and planets. AR/Vr mode lets you experience the 4D+ mode hands free and the VR ISS mode allows you to take a tour of the international space station and experience weightlessness. So fun!! There are focal adjustment buttons as well as a built in action button you can use with thousands of other VR apps! The only con I see about this product is my daughter says the headset hurts her nose after a prolonged period of time. Otherwise it really is a great educational product!

This would be a great educational gift to give your children for the upcoming holidays, or even for their birthdays or their friends birthdays! ReTrak also makes two other sets, Animal Zoo and Dinosaurs!

This Naipo Back Massager can be purchased from Amazon, and arrived in a box with a carry handle. Included is the massager, wall adapter, user manual and adapter for car. You just plug in the adapter of choice and you are all set. The great thing about this massager is you can use it on any chair you have! I tried it on my kitchen chairs, on my high back bar stools, on my car seat and even on my couch! It is so great that it is portable and can be used anywhere. There are 2 different massage settings and you can also use it with heat or without. I love the heat function, it really feels great with the massage.. You can lean back for a deeper massage or just rest against it for a lighter one. After the first time I used it my back felt so much better! The buttons on the side are easy to locate while you are getting your massage, in case you want to change modes. It really is a great back massager.

If you love getting massages, I would definitely say the Naipo Back Massager would be ideal for you. I love the fact that it is portable, and you can use it anywhere and on any chair you wish. The heating function is great to loosen those stiff muscles, and this massager is very comfortable to use on a daily basis.

Maui Wowi Hawaiian’s Midnight Kona Coffee Review

 

I LOVE Coffee!! I drink at least 4 cups per day to stay sane! I especially love dark roast ground coffee. I have a traditional coffee maker and also a cold brew coffee maker I just received for my birthday. It was perfect timing that Maui Wowi Coffee reached out to me to see if I wanted to review their Midnight Kona coffee!

Maui Wowi Hawaiian has combined Costa Rican and Kona beans for a full-bodied, dark roast with a mild, peppery aroma and subtle hints of coriander and cinnamon. The limited time brew presents a balanced flavor with a rich, heavy body, countered by subtle hints of coriander and cinnamon. The unique, peppery aroma of this summer flavor, followed by its warm and buttery aftertaste, sets it apart from Maui Wowi’s year-round selection of gourmet brews.

The limited time brew presents a balanced flavor with a rich, heavy body, countered by subtle hints of coriander and cinnamon. The unique, peppery aroma of this summer flavor, followed by its warm and buttery aftertaste, sets it apart from Maui Wowi’s year-round selection of gourmet brews. Bags of the coffee will also be available online at Shop.MauiWowi.com.

Since I love dark roasts this one was perfect for me. It smells amazing. I love the buttery aftertaste that this coffee gives combined with the cinnamon I taste. I am a big fan of iced coffee, however this coffee I just love hot since I can taste the flavors better.  I love to pair this with a few yummy cookies for a bit of sweetness to compliment the coffee. This is definitely a unique coffee that cannot be found in coffee shops.

 

 

This coffee is available for purchase by clicking here. Retail price is $15.80 and is available in whole bean, drip grind, french press and espresso grind.

Maui Wowi can be found at many outdoor events such as festivals, farmer’s markets, swim and soccer meets, and event and entertainment venues nationwide. For more information or to locate a Maui Wowi near you, please visit www.MauiWowi.com.

Do you have a little girl you know that loves Disney Princesses? I have found the perfect gift to give that little girl in your life. A Disney Princess Subscription Box from Pley.com! It is filled with Disney Princess themed goodies that any little Disney fan will love!

 

What is a Disney Princess Subscription Box?

You receive a box every 2 months that contains 4-8 official Disney Princess toys, activities and fashion accessories. Items are all different and each box is themed around 1 specific princess. My 8 year old daughter received “Ariel” from Little Mermaid themed box this month! Below is her unboxing video.

As you can see, everything including the box can be used, so there is no waste! She had a blast putting the boat together and coloring it. She has been wearing the sunglasses non stop in the Florida sun, and just loves her Ariel and Flounder dolls. This box came with pajamas, and before you order you can enter what size your child is. Past boxes have included a t-shirt, so you will never know what clothing item your child will receive! You can also save money by selecting more than 1 box. All plans are also auto renew.

 

 

 

My daughter was super happy with this subscription box. This box would make a great birthday gift, anytime gift, or the holidays will be quickly approaching!
