Are you looking for the perfect gift for your older child? 

For the last few months, our oldest who is about to turn 10 years old has been asking for a self balancing scooter and that's when I found Go Trax and saw that they had a Hoverfly on their website! Little does he know, he's getting one for Christmas! This is a really neat product, and is bright in color as you can see in the pictures on this post. It's very well made too, so that's a huge plus. 

Our son knows how to use one of these, because he and his sister have a friend at the summer program who has one and showed them. He'll be getting this Hoverfly from Santa this Christmas, so I will be updating this post with some pictures of him using it after Christmas day, so you guys can see it in kid use! 

You can purchase one for just $179 RIGHT NOW; the normal price of the Hoverfly is $199.

I didn't want to get hurt not knowing how to use a Hoverfly, so I had to balance myself the best I could on it, and keep an eye out because I will be updating this post with pictures of our son on it after Christmas! 

Some information about the Hoverfly you'll want to know:
- The product itself is 25.5 lbs and is easily removed from the box it came in and the packaging as well. 
- It takes about 1.5 hours to fully charge 
- The max weight capacity for this is 220 lbs
- Can reach speeds of up to 7.4 mph for up to 12 miles on a single full charge
- Has LED lights and has high quality space materials built to last
- Comes in 4 colors to choose from: neptune blue, planetary purple, pulsar pink, and mars red

UPDATED Review as of Dec 25, 2017: 
We gave our son the Hoverfly Hoverboard and he LOVES it! 

Below is an updated portion of the review since our son now has and uses the Hoverfly. He got it for Christmas and loves it and has used it several times so far. 

Please make sure that your child wears a helmet for safety reasons and has adult supervision while on the Hoverfly Hoverboard. It takes skill / balance / concentration to be able to use this device.

  1. Both of my boys want one of these. Santa isn't bringing them this year, but I am sure they will talk him into getting them each one someday :)

  2. My daughter has been asking for this. Looks like it would be super fun

  3. These looks like a blast! Scary as heck but a blast! Thankfully my little one is too little.

  4. This looks awesome. I just got my daughter the razor for her birthday. I can't wait to see her face when she opens it b/c santa says he can't give them since they start fires. LOL

  5. This looks like something my nephew would love. I just bought our little one a scooter that he'll love. Look forward to an update about your son's reaction.

  6. This looks like so much fun! I wonder if my 5-year old would be able to balance on it.

  7. My son would love this, I seriously think there is an art to riding these things

  8. Hover is one of the most trending thing in my country last year but only the rich can afford though kids love this parents just couldn't buy one even though they'd loved to. I find iit very interesting though, I haven't tried it before not even once.
