Regardless of whether you are a doting uncle or a father, it is always important to have a few extra gift ideas ready especially for events like birthdays, family get-togethers, the holidays and whatnot. Kids these days aren’t that easy to shop for, especially given the variety of things now available on the market and with each kid having their own vested interests. The most you can do is be attentive when they talk about their interests because it’s better to know what they like rather than playing the guessing game.
One thing that has been on everyone’s minds lately are hover boards. If anyone has watched “Back to the Future”, this is bound to bring back some memories. Of course, we don’t have the exact same kind of hover board. Rather these self-balancing boards give the illusion and feel of hovering in the air.
There are a lot of controversies around hover boards since there have been reported cases of them exploding or catching fire while charging. This is because of the lithium battery inside of the hover board but you can opt for better models and brands to avoid this mishap. You can look up some of the best hoverboards brands online for more information.
The price range for hover boards range from a minimum $200-$300 and can climb upto thousands of dollars. You do not have to opt for either the cheapest or the more expensive options. A lot of good hover boards fall under an affordable price range. You just need to make sure you do your research properly. Hover boards require some practice and balance to perfect but they are otherwise relatively safe. Their speed does not go beyond 15mph making it a safe option for your teen plus it can be a lot of fun for everyone.
