I tried really hard to stay off of my computer all weekend, only getting on during the kid’s nap times. We had such a good time in the sun, and even this evening we stayed out until the clouds rolled in. If I was judging the weather for tomorrow by the clouds that rolled in I would say rain is definite, but King5 says the only day it might rain next week is Tuesday but the other days are going to be in the 60’s and cloudy. I don’t’ think I can complain. I’ve seen some people say it’s pretty darn hot already.
The Plasma Car became our best friend
Last year, I received a plasmacar free of charge to review on my blog, the kids are finally getting really good play out of it. One, we live in a neighborhood with sidewalk, and we live on the cul-de-sac, and the kids have claimed the street as theirs. Two, they are both older and much more coordinated, and the weather has been so nice.
I love seeing my kids be more active outside. I know that I SIT a lot so they SIT a lot and it hasn’t been healthy for any of us. So I’m trying really hard to put the computer down and get my but outside and more active right beside the kids.
We do live on just a bit of a hill and my fearless son likes to just go straight down the hill. I have to run sometimes to keep up with him because I’m terrified that he is going to get to the bottom of the hill and end up in the street. I know I’m just an overprotective mother, what can I say. So up and down the hill we go and Zoe has finally taken the hill a few times herself, why is it that with one child I experience fear and the other I experience pure pride?
I love living in a city, where land is inhabited by people and not by animals. We have neighbors and kids to play with. We have more kids on just our block than I ever had in my neighborhood growing up. I love living where we live. We had a great weekend and I hope you did too. Tell me about what you did.
The Plasma Car sent me a car to review and they asked that I don’t post any pictures of my kids using it. The reason being, my kids don’t fit the regulated safety guides and they don’t want to endorse using the plasma car unsafely.
I’m glad they have that restriction and at the same time, I want to show you how much fun my kids are having on it. My daughter is two and she loves it. She’s been going up and down the hallway and my 1 year old sometimes pushes her. It’s so cute to see them play on it together.
My son uses it in all the dangerous ways that the Plasma Car doesn’t want me to show you. He’s one and he knows that he can climb on it to climb on other things. He pushes it to the wall and he’ll stand on it. I’ve seen him use it like a scooter. I look at him and sometimes I wonder, how old are you really? He once sat on it correctly and was only able to go backwards and decided that scooter mode was much better.
This toy is made for the energetic child like my son. He has so much energy and creativity and he seems to use both on the Plasma Car. My daughter loves it to and it just excites me to see her playing. It excites me to see both of them playing.
The assembly is a little complicated. Well, only the very last step is complicated. You have to get the last step exactly right and it has to be tight enough otherwise the car doesn’t work. The car works by steering the wheel back and fourth. This motion moves the wheels back and fourth and this creates forwards or backwards motion depending on if the larger wheels are on the front or back. This is why it’s great for kids, all the motion is created by them. I love it. You can purchase one at Amazon.
