Kids now days have the coolest toys. Recently I was able to participate in a campaign that involved a new toy on the market! I have a feeling that this will be a hit this Christmas! I received the Spin Master Air Hogs Vectron Wave! Spin Master’s legendary Air Hogs brand celebrated its 15th anniversary by pushing the boundaries of R/C innovation and fun by sending one of its most iconic toys, the Vectron Wave, into the stratosphere at an altitude of 100,259ft/30,559m. To celebrate its first successful trip to space, Spin Master is sharing extraordinary video footage of the Vectron’s unique journey online and launching an “out-of-this-world” contest where a family of four can win a four-day trip to Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama. This toy is pretty amazing if you ask me! It can be controlled with your hand! This toy is marketed toward boys, but in this household, I believe that male or female- you can play with everything! My daughter ( a somewhat tom boy) agrees too!
Our product came in this awesome case! It looks pretty cool and opens and closes easily!
Check it out: More about the launch! The Vectron Wave reached an altitude of 100,259 ft / 30,559 m! How cool is that? The project relied on 3D printed parts to build camera mounts and fixtures to capture footage! A number of GPS technologies were used and were crucial to locating the Vectron Wave upon landing. I love the space feel, seeing as it totally looks like a UFO when turned on!
The Vectron Wave comes with a remote of sorts. You can push the button to make it stop! The controller also has the charger built inside of it. Just pull it out, plug into the Vectron Wave, and turn on the on button! The Air Hogs Vectron Wave is the UFO that you control. Wave Control™ altitude-sensing technology allows it to rise up and hover over any hard surface without using a remote control! See it in action by my daughter below!
I love that she can use her hand to control it! This bad boy goes SO high too! Be careful to not stick your fingers in the blades. All though they are plastic- it still HURTS when they are smacked. That is why they have the controller! Lydia also received SPACE ICE CREAM! How neat is that to go with this theme? Now, when you purchase this product in store, please do not expect to receive this. This was included in my review package to go with the space theme.
Anywho- Lydia received freeze dried chocolate ice cream with chocolate chips. I was a bit skiddish to try it at first. She gave me a piece and we tried it at the same time. Holy COW. This is delicious!
Smiley faces! So excited!
The look on her face tells you that she enjoyed the first bite!
Looks so weird! But I promise it is oh so good!
Overall, we are thrilled with the Air Hogs Vectron Wave that we received for a review. I am so thrilled that I am recommending this for my 2014 Holiday Gift Guide! How much is this going to cost you? Well, it is the low price of only $24.99! You can find this in most retailers such as Target and Walmart too! Completely affordable for hours of fun!
