Summer is QUICKLY approaching. I mean REALLY quickly.
That means long days. High temperatures (at least here in my neck of the woods) and the constant wailing of “Mom, I’m bored”.
What do you do with your kids during those summer months when you really hate to see them sitting in front of a game console or computer for hours on end?
Here in Hicktown there isn’t a lot to do. No movie theater, no bowling alley, no skating rink. We have a very, very small park but it really wasn’t established for kids. It is mostly for the adults. So what do we have around town that is good for the kids? Nothing. We have to get creative. We find places in other areas to visit that have more activities and establishments geared towards kids. But with Bric out of a job at the moment we will be getting even more creative this summer. It gets so hot here during the day that we have also found that we enjoy being out and about during the evenings after it has cooled off a little.
So, an evening activity that is fun, creative and low-cost. That is where the Rockboard Radiate Skateboard comes in!! Perfect for a fun summer toy that keeps the kids entertained. Great for evenings. AND, it is exercise without them even knowing it!! Tate LOVES it! He can skate around, learn new tricks and have fun while I am out walking at the park or whatever. But it gets his out from in front of the computer AND entertains him. That speaks volumes when you are dealing with a 14 year old. He loves that it lights up and looks “cool” and all the other kids comment on it. I love that it is well made and durable. We are talking about a 14 year old, remember?! And, I love that it is re-chargeable…that means no having to run to the store for batteries every few days. Here, check it out and read about the features for yourself…and make sure to watch the video. If one of these show up on your doorsteps, you will be Mom or Dad of the year!! And shhh, don’t say I told it but you would think Bric was a 14 year old kid himself. When Tate isn’t looking he likes to take it for a spin too.
Integrated with 48 precision-positioned LED lights, the Radiate Skateboard projects an explosion of color for a radical skateboarding experience! The newest innovation in skateboarding will have kids riding in style throughout the night with a glowing track of multi-colored lights illuminating its path.
The Radiate is available in ten different color combinations and utilizes a rechargeable battery that can be turned on and off for a one-of-a-kind skateboarding experience. The premium skateboard is manufactured with a hard rock maple deck and paired with low rolling resistance Abec-5 bearings that are connected to high-end casted pro aluminum trucks for ultimate durability.
The Radiate Skateboard is available at Amazon.com and Target.com. Rockboard, best-known for their 2012 TOTY (Toy of the Year) award-winning hybrid Rockboard Scooter, is committed to providing children and adolescents with a fun, safe, and effective way to stay active during outdoor play.
