It's that time of year again when we decorate the tree, leave out milk and cookies for Santa Claus and unwrap awesome gifts on Christmas morning. There are some gifts however that kids (And adults) freak out over when they rip that wrapping paper off. Obviously, hoverboards are just such a gift. They have been for several Christmas' now and they will be for Christmas' to come. They are a hot commodity.
However, if you are new to the wonderful world of hoverboards than you may be wondering why they make such a great gift. What is it about these vehicles that makes people go crazy when they get one? Why do kids salivate over the very idea of owning one? We're here to break it down for you and explain what all of the excitement is about.
Freedom To Roam
Hoverboards let kids feel like they're flying and allows them to go anywhere they want at fun speeds. You can explore the neighborhood, ride to work knowing that you aren't harming the environment and feel the wind in your face, all while standing upright. There's really no feeling quite like flying on a hoverboard. You aren't surrounded by a vehicle. Just being propelled by the two wheels beneath your feet.
Fun and Games
They aren't just about getting from one place to another. You and your friends can play all kinds of fun games while on your hoverboards. Everything from Tug of War to Tag. You can even race against your friends, which is even more fun if you make an obstacle course. Play some of these games in the dark and things really get interesting. There's really no limit to the kinds of games you can play while on your new ride. Use your imagination. Everything is extra fun when you are on a hoverboard. Some people even perform some really cool synchronized dance moves while on their bluetooth hoverboard.
Hoverboards are very easy to care for. They require very little maintenance aside from making sure that you have a full battery and they require no fuel.
They Are Completely Safe
Since hoverboards are UL 2272 certified, you know that you are safe. Everything has been thoroughly tested and has passed a rigorous inspection so that you can rest easy and concentrate on having fun.
So Many Features
Another reason that people go crazy when they get a hoverboard for Christmas is that they are so cutting-edge and full of features these days. Many have apps that connect them to your smartphone, some have LCD displays and they even have training modes for new users. If that isn't enough there's Bluetooth speakers, great ranges, GPS, headlights and more. The latest ones are even self-balancing. It's like getting a car's worth of features in a ride that stays under your feet.
They Are Just Plain Cool
The above reasons are all great, but let's be honest, one of the biggest reasons that hoverboards are such a gifting hit is because they are just so darn cool. They're loads of fun too, but there's definitely a cool factor. It feels great to ride like the wind and use all of those extra features, especially when you are passing others by and leaving them in the dust. You are the man and you have a sweet ride. Life is good.
It's pretty easy to see why people get so excited when you stop to think about it. There's a lot to love about these personal transport vehicles. I'll be honest. I hope I find one of the latest models under my own Christmas tree this year.
