I’m Flying!

OMG we had SO much fun this weekend with our Jetson Hoverboard and Jetson JetKart!

The Jetson Z10 Hoverboard is around $220 and has fun rainbow lights, links to Bluetooth and can reach up to 10mph. It is self-balancing, but takes some skill to master! Well, at least for adults. The children had no problems learning this new toy!

The next Jetson Hooverboard up is the Jetson Z12, which has All-Terrain tires and some slightly upgraded features. If you have uneven curbs/roads, this would be a better fit because it offers more cushioning to help create a smoother ride and easier to transition from street to driveways, (there is often an uneven, jagged surface).

We also had a TON of fun on the Jetson JetKart Phantom, which is MUCH easier to use and reaches speeds of up to 9mph. For around $125, it seems like a deal. Ours has been open for a week and still works perfectly. Our 8-year old was unable to master this toy, we think he doesn’t weigh enough to trip the sensor.

Jetson also offers a conversion kit that transforms your overboard into a JetKart, called the JetCart 2.0.  We haven’t tried it, but I though the JetKart was SO fun and am unsure if I will ever master hovering, so perhaps this is a good compromise.

 

Christmas Gifts – PS4.

My favorite gaming console is the PlayStation 4 because the technology and graphics rock. It is easy to figure out the Sony-based system and controllers, plenty of games are available and the accessories are easy to plug/play and they consistently work. Check the specials when you buy- I suggest the PS4Pro because is offers 4K gaming and HDR, plus more powerful processors. The PS4Slim is the older model and runs all of the same games, but is less advanced. There will be sales on both models, here are some options:

 

You’ll want at least 2 controllers, so make sure to grab an extra one, (or three because four is a great number to play together! Don’t get the black ones, go colorful and fun! Make sure you buy the controller directly through Playstation and check that the logo on the tiny button in the center is centered properly. you do NOT want a knock-off controller- you will waste so much time trying to fix it and listen to the player complain.

Thumb Gribs: These are like a sweater for the controller. They are an extra touch of fun and are a good accessory to customize the controllers.

 

PlayStation VR: this technology is awesome! The bundles are a good way to save money and make sure you have everything you’ll need, (the VR Headset, PS4 Camera, possibly the Move Motion Controllers, and compatible games). The Controller Charger station provides a location for the controllers to be stored and charged.

Home Things:

Closet Organization: sometimes the best way to ease an over-worked brain is to mega-organize a special area. My closet is my haven and I LOVE having everything neat & tidy with the huggable hangers with matching silver hooks. They are heavy, so make sure your closet shelf/rod/whatever is secured into the wall and enjoy!
