(with a single exception)

It’s always hard to find the perfect Christmas gift, especially for elderly people. They have everything already, that’s why I thought about the carbon monoxide alarm and the cardholder.

For kids of 9+, the hoverboard is a topper! In combination with the hover cart, it becomes a very attractive and functional toy even to use for younger kids 6+.

The Youniversity Activity Centre and the Fisher-Price Learn Fun World Globe are educational responsible toys for the youngest of 1-4 years of age.

And who doesn’t want that silver cashmere blanket for cozy hours on the coach?

A few months back I bought the Stepper inSPORTline EasyStep – the kids of the daycare are quite fond of it.

Decorate wood and make your own nametag at the front door with the wood burner, the children here are having a lot of fun with it.

Key/chain/Pan flap racks

Here is a creative way to recycle old greeting cards

To make boxes, window chimes or unique photo frames.

What do you need for it?Window hanger

  • You have to find 6 similar old greeting cards
  • Make a mal
  • Coton thread and needle
  • Some beads
  • Charms (if you have them)
  • Prick and pad

You can use anything for the decoration what you like.

7. Attach beads and charms
Recycling postcards

Kids really love to make these window chimes from old greeting cards! 10-year-olds can make it themselves, with the proper instructions. When they are younger, they need a helping hand. 4-year-olds can choose the cards and the beads and can make 2 or 3 stitches 😉

Creative Christmas wishes

When you are having plans to spend your Christmas days at your family or friends house, or you want to send a very special birthday wish to someone you love, you can create a special card for them this way too. You can put it in a box and send it by post.

Original photo frame for wedding pictures

Do you want to make something special from your wedding pictures? This might give you an idea too. I would stick the pictures on a piece of soft cardboard first, to give them more strength.

It will look very nice for sure between all average cards!

Happy recycling!

Airwheel Self Balancing Electric Unicycle

When you want to have something original, the airwheel self balancing electric unicycle is amazing!

airwheel self balancing electric unicycle

Specifications

MANUFACTORY:  Metem Technology

CATEGORY:  Outdoor

AGE:  12 up

GENDER:  Uni

MATERIAL: synthetic

PRICE:  € 360

BATTERY: 170Wh

Product Description

Relaxed floating through the streets or stunting with your friends while you transport yourself from the station to school or work. That’s pure enjoyment! Enjoy the freedom this electric one-wheel-cycle will give you.

Your body is your steering wheel. By leaning forward slightly the airwheel accelerates up to 18 km / h. Braking is done by sitting back. Easy! Do not worry about your balance, the gyroscope together with the fuzzy logic software are always taking care for the right balance. So you can literally without falling move towards all sides.

Learning to ride on the Airwheel X3 is easy, within a few hours you have mastered it. The Airwheel X3 comes standard with a workout set of two side wheels that you can fix on the footpegs.

On a single charge of only 120 minutes (80% battery load in 90 minutes) the AirWheel battery X3 runs 18 to 23 kilometers. The unicycle is easy to carry in bus or train, thanks to the handle, the optional matching backpack can be ordered with it, and the Airwheels minimum weight is 9.8 kilograms. Conversely, the compact unicycle may carry 120 kilos.

Airwheel Self Balancing Electric Unicycle

Everyone is watching YOU!

The Airwheel is here and it is absolutely bonkers!
This self balancing one wheel electric unicycle scooter solves your transportation needs.

And although it is easy to learn, due to the balance side wheels, you really will feel some muscle ache the next day. When you own a pair of shin guards it’s recommended to wear a pair faced the inside of your shins until you’ve got the hang of it. The key is to shift your weight from one side to the other, and in the meanwhile keeping pressure on your feet so the wheel stays in motion.
