Can you believe how close it is to Xmas? It is close enough that you can count it in mere weeks. SIX WEEKS! Bearing that in mind, I was delighted when oo.com.au offered us the opportunity to choose some toys from their fabulous selection. Boyo was even more delighted!
In the interests of keeping it real, this is not a sponsored post. The shopping website oo.com.au offered us the opportunity to select toys to the value of $50. Kimba Likes’ opinion cannot be bought.
Boyo checked out the website and set his heart on a Wave Scooter. It’s a cross between a scooter and a skateboard, with a 360 degree rear castor wheel, which provides loads of fun pulling such cool tricks as drifting and carving. It operates via a torsion self-propelling technology, which means it whips side to side.
As Boyo is currently learning how to skateboard, this is a great intermediate step, to get him used to moving his body in different directions to get the board to move in the direction he wants to go.
For the safety-conscious amongst us, ie, the parental units, it is rated to 60kgs and has an integrated grip tape deck so their feet don’t slip off mid-trick. It folds for easy travel, and is suitable for kids aged 5 years and up. Please be aware that there is no footbrake like many other brands of scooters.
At only $29.95, it was an absolute bargain and we added it to the cart quick smart!
Check out Boyo learning to ride his Wave Scooter. We found that getting him a good start on a smooth surface with a slight incline, with some soft grass at the end of the incline for a safe crash landing spot, worked best for him. Note to self – check the grass for doggy doo first!
As Boyo is a
big huge Pokemon fan, we added a Pokemon DVD to the cart as well. Unfortunately, I am not the biggest Pokemon fan and I have to confess that if I never see this movie again, I would be quite thrilled. However, Boyo absolutely loves it and as all Mamas know, what makes your darling happy (and keeps them entertained for 90 minutes or so) makes us happy too.
The ordering process was painless and easy – once you’ve decided what to actually buy from the huge selection, that is – and delivery was super quick. The products arrived in two separate parcels, which actually added to the excitement in our household.
We’ve been very happy with the excellent service and value for money provided by the Toy Department of oo.com.au. Boyo would like to highly recommend the Wave Scooter as loads of fun and thinks everyone should put on on their Xmas lists!
