We enjoy an adventure in our family and trying new things. It is what makes us great bloggers and reviewers and we are generally up for a challenge. Recently I had an email asking if we would like to try a Hoverboard. This immediately gave me visions of Back to the Future. I am such a 90’s girl and I could see myself gliding up the road to school. I was imagining myself on the best hoverboard for family fun.
We do like to try things, even my dog has had a go at skateboarding when we went to see if she had what it takes to be a performer. Lilly wasn’t very interested and preferred just eating the treats! Therefore I was eagerly awaiting the delivery of the best hoverboard.
It arrived just as I was heading away for the weekend. The box stood in the dining room and as I left, I said to the kids, don’t get that out until I am home as you need to be supervised.
Twenty minutes later I’m getting photos and videos sent to me of them whizzing up the hallway on the hover. They loved it and had quickly mastered it. It comes ready fully charged which is brilliant for impatient kids (and grownups!). The kids have told me that a full charge has lasted them a full 48 hours and this is with them on it non stop!
I was initially worried that it would be difficult for my 8-year-old to master and control. I had visions of her hurtling towards furniture and face planting the floor. Neither has happened. Yes, she has had two tumbles, much like children do when learning to ride a bike. However, both times she has got up and got straight back on as she enjoys playing on it so much. I have enjoyed been talked into a play date after school this week because her friends want to come and have a go!
HOVER-1, the official blurb
HOVER-1 is known as a top board brand throughout the world. With vibrant, technologically advanced safety tested boards, HOVER-1 makes a line of easy to ride boards that are exciting! The long battery life and mileage make this a board to ride to work or school or have thrilling adventures on for hours. HOVER-1 is also known for their e-scooters, go carts, and e-bikes. With Spring here, it is the perfect time to start to rock and roll on a HOVER-1. Going outside and exercising is a great way to create relaxed and peaceful moments while being healthy.
Watch the vlog
Rather than just talking about the hover 1 I decided video would be best. Therefore Erin and I put together a little vlog of the best hoverboard and us in action. As you will see the kids are far far better than me, but I am going to practise!
The hoverboard is lots of fun for all the family and so far it has rarely been left unattended. It is great for developing core and balance, something I am clearly lacking!
